    Re: Setting up Samba in 14.04

    I commented out [homes] with a # in front of all lines

    then ran testparm
    username option it says is an old thing.
    So what should be used?

    Code:
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$ testparm
    Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
    rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)

    ALSO, how does smb.cnf work with nautilus shares?
    Are they written into smb.cnf?

    How can I list all my shares?

    "username = " was deprecated when Eisenhower was still in Europe so use "valid users = scott". ( That might be a wee bit of an exaggeration )

    nautilus-shares are controlled by samba ( and smb.conf ) but their share definitions are in /var/lib/samba/usershares. For the shares created through Nautilus you can always see what you shared and how you shared them using the following command:
    Code:
    net usershare info --long

    thanks morbius, so 'valid users'is good to use.

    testparm did not show any problems

    Code:
    scott@scott-P5QC:~$ testparm
