  1. Re: Problem with Samba related to moving WIndows desktop files to newly installed Ubu

    [SOLVED] Re: Auto mount with odd issue

    The only reason I asked is because of the nature of Samba.

    Samba on the server is a gatekeeper. It determines which client can access the share and what that user can do. But it can't override the...
