I'm tired of the slow performance of Windows file sharing, so I'm playing around with samba in FC5 as a possible replacement for my home file server. I have created a share in FC5 using the Samba configuration tool, and I am able to access it from my Windows machine. The problem is that the share is read-only even though I checked the "writeable" box in the samba config utility. When I try to write a file to the share from a Windows machine I get a message that says "Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected...." I can copy files from the share just fine.
The directory that I've shared is /share/test, and here are the local permissions assigned to the folder:
[root@localhost share]# pwd
[root@localhost share]# ls -l
drwxrwxrwx 2 aaron aaron 4096 May 9 15:01 test
Through the samba config utility I have created a user named aaron, and assigned that user to the share. When I connect to the share from Windows I use the username and password I created for samba, but access is read-only.
