Samba Server Write permissions

Greetings all,

I am having 2 issues with Samba Server and write permissions.

I have setup Samba and can view all the directories using security = user

We'll address the first issue then hopefully it will lead me to resolving the second

I have read about 50 different tutorials on this subject and it seems I am doing it right. here are the details.

My windows login user is called rabphp and it is in the smbpasswd file

My SMB conf file is the following:

# Global parameters
workgroup = LINUX
server string = Samba Server
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*success fully*
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
printcap name = /etc/printcap
dns proxy = No
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
guest ok = Yes
hosts allow = 64.207.10., 192.168.11., 127.
cups options = raw

comment = Home Directories
read only = No
browseable = No

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No

comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = No

comment = dan folder
path = /rabphp
valid users = rabphp
public = no
writable = yes

The directory is marked the following...

drwxrwxrwx 2 rabphp rabphp 4096 Jul 5 13:31 dan

I can shell into this server as rabphp and mkdir or touch files to create them without any issues, so the permissions seem correct. In Windows XP explorer I see the directory and can enter the directory.

Strangely enough, I can write to the /tmp directory but cannot write to the rabphp directory from windows. Any help greately appreciated.

I found the issue...

setenforce 0

Appears SELinux was the problem.
