Samba Share


I am attempting to create a simple read-only anonymous SAMBA share. The folder permissions are 755. However, I am unable to view the files. Could someone post a basic config that should work? I have done this several years ago but for some reason I can't get it to work. Running Fedora 13.

Re: Samba Share

You may be being blocked by several things - your firewall, and possibly
SELinux permissions.

Ensure that you have smb and nmb running and enabled, then
verify that samba is listed as a trusted service.. Check the firewall
to be sure that smb/nmb are permitted..
Then check SELinux. I'm not certain which ones would be needed for
your specific application though. The list of booleans that control
SAMBA are:

samba_export_all_ro -------- this one maybe?

For mine, the only thing enabled is the samba_enable_home_dirs, which
allows an XP laptop read/write access to home directories.

Re: Samba Share

That's probably what it is. I'll look into it and get back to you.
