I've got a Win7 system that connects to my Ubuntu server, where I keep my music and other media. I can access my media files from the Win7 machine, but I often get permissions errors, for example when trying to update tags on tracks.
On the Linux machine, I have a group "group1", which contains the user "bob". "bob" is also my login account for that Linux machine. I have a mapped network drive in Win7, which also uses the "bob" username to login.
My samba config has
security = user guest account = nobody [share] comment = File Server Share path = /media/md0 browsable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no create mask = 0775
Given this setup, I'd expect applications on my Win7 machine to be able to update MP3 files on the Linux machine that belong to "group1", but instead I get permission errors. I'm wondering if Windows does something funny with the login credentials it presents to Linux, or perhaps there's something wrong in my samba config?
I can't understand why I can edit files in Linux as user "bob", but I can't edit the files from Win7 when accessing with the same username and credentials. Any suggestions for things to try?
