    Setting the password for RAID share folder

    Hello guys. I implemented a RAID1 system in my office. Im using that computer for file sharing on our local network.
    All of the other computers have Windows installed. Is there any way to put a password on my /mnt/raid folder, so when Windows users want to enter it they have to type a password?

    Sharing with permissions is working just fine, everything is working. I just want to limit the access, so I as admin have to type the password on the PCs to connect.

    Don't share it with users besides yourself. By "share" I assume you mean CIFS/Samba?

    RAID has nothing to do with this question, BTW.

    Re: Setting the password for RAID share folder

    I way trying to describe my situation. I HAVE to share that folder because that folder is made of our shared files on our local network in my business area. Its the /mnt/raid mount that Im sharing. Only that folder is seen on the Windows network when they access the Linux PC. I want to put the password on it so as Admin I can manually choose which computers are going to access that shared folder.

    Samba has already been activated. Thats why they can see the folder in the first place cause I entered my business workgroup with it.
