im new to linux and Samba.
Create a called Shared_folder which can be accessed by ALL users (group name = users). Therefore, in order to map the drive in windows, the user is promoted to enter valid user credentials.
I have the following Shared_folder with the following permissions:
drwxr-xr-x 2 nobody users 4096 Dec 27 00:24 Shared_folder
..and the following Samba config:
[Shared_folder] printable = no writeable = yes path = /home/Shared_folder force group = users comment = Common Documenets accessible by all users valid users = @users create mode = 757 public = no directory mode = 777
But it when I try to map the drive in windows im unable to pass the user validation part as it keeps failing.
Could someone please shed some light as to how to get this working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
