I have Samba running on my home NAS (just a bare bones computer with an external HDD attached) in order to transfer files to/from a Windows machine. It's mostly working, I can browse the shares I have set up however I cannot write to them.
My hard drive is mounted on
/media/HDD1. The relevant parts of my Samba config are below:
security = user [Media] comment = Media Storage path = /media/HDD1 create mask = 0775 read only = no browsable = yes guest ok = yes [Files] comment = File Storage path = /media/HDD1 create mask = 0775 read only = no browsable = yes guest ok = yes
When Samba is running, I can get to the shares from Windows by typing
\\nas into Windows Explorer. However when I try to create a file/directory, or try to transfer one I get this error dialog:
Obviously it's something to do with user permissions, however I don't know what. If I comment
security = user in the config I get the same error. From what I know having
read only set to
no should enable me to read/write as I please.
Any help is greatly appreciated. :)
