  1. Samba client issue: win2k shares read only except to root user

    I have a win2k server with a shared directory. I have successfully
    used MCC to connect to and mount the shared directory. As a user I
    have read only access to the shared files. As root I have full
    access. What do I need to do to give myself read and write access to
    the files?

    from fstab:
    //furgabat/data /mnt/data smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/
    auth.furgabat.carolyn 0 0

    from auth.furgabat.carolyn:
    username = carolyn
    domain =
    password = ????????
    uid=501

    I am using Mandriva 2008.0

    Thanks for the assistance,

    Carolyn

    I think you need to have the same username in both machines or connect as
    the user who serves the shared directory. also run smbpasswd (as yourself,
    not root) and install your password (the password on the remote machine)
    with it.
