I want to setup a samba for file sharing in my intranet, but I want to know if there is any way to prohibit some kind of files (e.g *.exe) uploaded to the share folder? And I want to know if there is any way to force the user to change the password for the first time login?

1 Answer 1

The veto files configuration option might be what you are looking for to prevent certain files from being allowed.

Use it like this in the smb.conf: veto files = /*.extension1/*.extension2/
