Ok, feel free to move this to the networking forum

Basically I have a debian etch server up and running and have installed samba but the bad news is my meddling has deleted the smb.conf file. Can anyone give me one suitable for the following setup

no security - full read and write access including ability to create / del dirs with no login required

workgroup = mshome
share = /shared

clients are all xp home ed

Dani gives an example of a smb.conf in her Red Hat Samba tutorial.

Perhaps you want something like this?

   workgroup = MSHOME 
   server string = Jbennet 
   hosts allow = 192.168. 127. 
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log 
   security = user 
   encrypt passwords = yes 
   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd 
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 

   comment = Root 
   path = /
   browseable = yes 
   writable = yes 
   public = yes 
   read only = no

Hope this helps

thanks but it still says access denied - gonna install CentOS 4.4 and use the GUI instead
