I am on TomatoUSB, and using the feature to have a NAS.
The only way I can write to the Samba share is if I force root:
[global] interfaces = 127.0.0.1, 192.168.1.1/24 bind interfaces only = no workgroup = WORKGROUP netbios name = TOMATO security = share wins support = yes name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast guest account = nobody [Public] path = /mnt/sda2 read only = no public = yes only guest = yes guest ok = yes browseable = yes comment = Network share force user = root writeable = yes
I dont really like the idea having to use root to allow write access to my share. I have a samba account created already named nobody to allow access to the share. However every time I try to write I get access denied error.
dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2 vfat defaults 0 0
Further more every time I try to
chmod 777 /tmp/mnt/sda2 the permissions are not changed, and no error is produced. They stay 755.
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 4 01:49 sda2
Basically; how can I give the user nobody write permissions to my mount?
dev name: /dev/sda2 dev mount: /tmp/mnt/sda2
