  1. Access permission

    Let say i have 3 directories on samba server, does anybody know how to
    make one of the directories can be read and write by every user? how
    to make one of the directories can be read only but cant write by
    every user? how to make one Of the directories can be read and write
    by certain user, meaning that inside this directory, every user has
    their own directory and every user can only read and write their own
    directory?

    [Public]
    comment = Read/Write to anybody
    path = /some/directory
    read only = No
    guest only = Yes
    guest ok = Yes

    You can also do this with:

    [Public]
    comment = Read/Write to valid users
    path = /some/directory
    read only = No
    create mask = 0664
    directory mask = 0775

    The difference is that the second version preserves the user name and group
    when they create files or directories, and gives access to other valid users
    in the same group. The former users the nobody account to create iles and
    directories.

    [Public2]
    comment = Read by anybody/Write by None
    path = /some/directory
    read only = Yes
    guest ok = Yes

    If you remove the guest ok = Yes, then only valid users can read this
    directory. Nobody can write to this directory.

    [homes]
    comment = Read/Write by one one user
    read only = No
    browseable = No

    The homes directory is a special directory that points to /home/username,
    where username is the username of the current user. Everybody has their own
    directory, where only they can read/write. The directory must exist and is
    usually created when you create a new user.

    regarding this, since nobody can write to this directory, and since i
    want to let others can read the document in this directory, before
    they can read , i must write some document to this directory , with
    read only = Yes, i can't write. how to solve?

    i set the path something like this, path = /some/directory/%u

    but when i try to access the above directory from XP box, the
    following message was prompted:
    //xxx/bb is not accessible. Please contact the network administrator
    whether you have the access permission.
    Network path was not found.

    what is the problem? how to solve?
