Ok I've been reading about Samba shares etc. for the past few days, I still cannot get it to work.
I've gotten a public share and a private user share to work, but not a group share.
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 map to guest = bad user #state directory = /var/lib/samba #usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershares [public] comment = public share path = /srv/abc/public browsable = yes writable = yes ready only = no guest ok = yes create mask = 0777 create directory = 0777 [private] comment = private share path = /srv/abc/private browsable = yes writable = yes security = user valid users = test ready only = no guest ok = no create mask = 0777 create directory = 0777 [mygroup] comment = mygroup server files path = /srv/mygroup browsable = yes writable = yes security = user valid users = @mygroup force group = mygroup ready only = no guest ok = no create mask = 0777 create directory = 0777 force create mode = 0777 force security mode = 0777 force directory mode = 0777
I done the following to add a user an d group.
sudo useradd karl sudo passwd karl sudo groupadd mygroup sudo usermod -a -G mygroup karl sudo smbpasswd -a karl sudo mkdir /srv/mygroup sudo chmod 777 /srv/mygroup sudo chgrp mygroup /srv/mygroup
I still can't log into it via my windows 8.
