I was struggling to find a good place to put this one, should it go in the Linux forums, should it go in the Windows forums? Anyway, networking seemed like as good a place as any so here goes:
I'm currently setting up a SAMBA file server which I am planning to use for backups. The problem is, the moment I try and restrict access to a folder it locks me out completely, I shall post my smbd.conf file to show you what I mean:
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP security = user [PublicFiles] comment = Public File Shares path = /home/FileShares/Public browsable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no writeable = yes create mask = 0755 [Alexander] comment = File Shares for Alexander path = /home/FileShares/Alexander browsable = yes valid users = alexander guest ok = no read only = no writeable = yes create mask = 0755
I can connect to the PublicFiles share and view content in the folder, however if I try to connect to the share 'Alexander' it won't allow me and gives the error "Access Denied". The same thing happens if I try to modify or add a file to the PublicShares. I have setup a SAMBA user, and the password is correct however I don't know what I am doing wrong.
It is an Ubuntu 12.04 server, trying to connect to it with Windows 7
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
