View Full Version : [ubuntu] File sharing on LAN - password & quota

Hi Ubuntu members :)

I was wondering if it was possible within Ubuntu to:

a) Make a shared folder to the extent that people can view it but to access/open it requires a password.

b) Set that folder to have a set size (quota) so that people putting files onto the store/folder don't flood my computer with video/music.

I am currently at Loughborough University and am on their LAN as I type.

So guys/gals are there any programs on the synaptic that do such a job or does Ubuntu already have an inbuilt way of doing that.
