Re: Permissions and Samba Shares SOLVED

In my case I specify the owner (and password) in a separate credentials file. No you do not. What you are doing is passing a user name and password the server requires and validates in order to access the share. Without declaring a uid in the cifs mount expression it would still be owned by root an...

Re: Permissions and Samba Shares SOLVED

Why is it necessary to set this differently to the ownership of the folders on the server, with the permissions allocated as per the user identification in the 'creds' file? The server only sees the user passed via the credentials file. Everything you do will be as that user to the server. Even if ...

Re: SMB within applications

Open a terminal and run: nemo /run/user/$UID/gvfs Immediately create a bookmark to that location when nemo opens up. This will create a permanent link to that location in nemo labelled "gvfs". So the process is: [1] Connect to the share using nemo. [2] In HandBrake when you use "Open Source" or what...

Re: I fail to assign full permission to my automount ntfs directory

The way you are mounting your ntfs partition is inconsistent with the way you want permissions. The fstab entry will have owner=sina, group=plugdev, and permissions of 774. sina and members of the plugdev group will be able to read and write to the partition but others will not be able to do anythin...

Re: How to create shared directory

You might want to define exactly what you mean by "shared". sudo chmod 777 /home/SharedFolder will in fact give all users the ability to edit the contents of that folder. So if userA creates a file in that folder: userB can delete it. userB can rename it. userB can even move it. The above can be pre...

Samba already uses port 139 ( even though it hasn't been used since Windows 2000 - maybe WinXP ). You can verify this yourself by running the following command: testparm -sv | grep "smb ports" It should list both 445 and 139. As far as 138 is concerned there is nothing in samba itself that prevents ...
