let me re-write what i meant happened. i'll provide more information.----
i've been reading the internet groups and i've tried the howto's. i'm
running into an obstable and i am asking for assistance here! I have
FC5 as a server with samba files. it does not have swat, or a graphical
tool. it is a text or base server so i can conserve as much room as
possible on it for putting files on it. This is the same dumping
ground that i've been trying to get my upstairs fedora computer to write
to. i finally got it figured out with some assistance (nfs was turned
off). now i'm trying to get it set up so my wife (or i) can write files
to that computer (Samba Server) from her comupter (WinBlows).
the client(s) are going to be windows XP pro. i'm testing it out on the
one computer with xp pro installed on it now (home computers) and i can
log in with the right user name and password, and i can view the
folders. i cannot write to the home directory (i think that is turned
off ...) and i cannot write to the directory R2314 that i have shared.
the new smb.conf file is smb.conf and the old one is smb.conf.bak. I
have also set up the directory to be written to with the permissions:
/misc/R2314 GROUP rwxr-xrwx
i did this because i found an article that said i needed to let 'others'
rwx to the directory. every time i mess with the smb.conf file i do a
'service smb restart.' I think that is everything! Oh by the way, when
i try to write to the directory from WinBlows to the Samba Server ... it
says i do no have enough disk space or the appropriate permissions. and
samba Version is 3.0.23-1.fc5
i even went and added "smbpasswd -a " and added two users with two
passwords. both of whom have home directories.
this is the new samba configuration file (follows):
workgroup = RHODES
netbios name = Samba Server
encrypt passwords = yes
security = user
read only = no
browseable = yes
comment = HodgePodge of Data
path = /misc/R2314/
force user = hbrhodes klrhodes kelli
force group = wheel
read only = No
;guest ok = Yes
create mask = 0765
1 - what mode is SELinux (you can figure that out from
system-config-securitylevel and clicking the SELinux tab).
If it is in 'enforcing' mode, it is likely to be your problem. Either
set it to permissive or report back here and we will try to help you
with configuration changes necessary to use samba & SELinux
2 - Is firewall enabled? (also configured from
If it is enabled, do you have samba checked to allow Fedora system to
accept connections on the common Windows ports?
3 - Permissions on /misc/R2313
Does 'wheel' group have write permissions? What is (unedited) output of
ls -ld /misc/R2313
What you reported above doesn't make sense since you edited it.
Are the users for whom you added samba passwords also members of the
4 - Permissions on home directories - wouldn't suggest that you change
them at all. They should be available to the users from their login
however the only way 'home' directories are automatically mounted from
the magical Windows HOMES share is if you do domain controller & join
the Windows machines to Windows (samba) domain controller, which is
beyond the efforts a normal user would probably want to go.
