    Query about samba security ?

    Hi, I just installed ubuntu server to share my files between my other Vista PCs using wired LAN. Now I'm setting up samba and everything work good ! but about security is it ok to make it share ? such , the shared files in ubuntu box are available directly ? or I make user ? since I'm always using my machins without passwords . My machines with Vista are connected to internet for long times(I mean most time) . I need advice

    in your case both.. setting a password would mean only you have access to it and no one else..
