Forums are full of examples, howtos and tutorials, but most of them deal with ADs and other stuff exceeding my desired setup.
I use Ubuntu 12.04 server and would like to access its share (for testing I have only one) from a windows network (initially only Windows 7) in such a way, that ...
a. guests can browse the share (no W access)
b. Windows "Administrator" can RW the share
I use ...
Like this, I can see the Ubuntu server in Network, see its share and RW this share.
workgroup = myhomenetwork
security = user
comment = test share
path = /media/test-share
browsable = yes
public = yes
writable = yes
create mask = 0755
1. When I create a file or folder, I get permissions 0777 instead of the shown 0755. How come?
2. I created a user "administrator" for the Ubuntu server (adduser administrator). I read that a system user is required before a Samba user can be created (smbpasswd -a administrator). Is this correct?
3. Is the Ubuntu/Samba username case sensitive against Windows username? The Windows administrator is called "Administrator", not "administrator".
4. How should my [myshare] look like to accept guest R and administrator RW access?
