What would you like to do?
samba shares smb.conf
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: LINUX2
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = $USER
# $USER should be changed to what you want your computer known as on the SMB network.
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = the share of the century
# Security mode. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible
# values are share, user, server, domain and ads. Most people will want
# user level security. See the HOWTO Collection for details.
security = share
# if you remove this entry you will probably be pestered with password dialog boxes for passwords that are not set.
# Unix users can map to different SMB User names
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
# nautilus sharing stuff
usershare allow guests = yes
usershare max shares = 100
usershare owner only = False
# write to unix back end using this user:group
# paths are for /home/samba directories, you will probably want to change these.
comment = Guest access share
public = yes
path = /home/samba/broadcast
browseable = yes
read only = yes
guest ok = yes
path = /home/samba/dropbox
public = yes
browseable = yes
read only = no
guest ok = yes
force user = $USER
force group = $USER
# $USER is to be replaced with the actual user/group writing files to the dropbox public r/w share directory.
