I still cant get on the samba@ mailing list so I'm posting here.
Running samba 1.9.18p4 on linux. Let's say the machine is called "test"
I have shares in my smb.conf configured as follows. (example)
force group = excell
comment = Web stuff
path = /servers/www/sites/excelldent.com
valid users = webtech
public = no
writable = yes
printable = no
force create mode = 750
create mask = 0750
directory mask = 0750
; fake oplocks = yes
short preserve case = yes
preserve case = yes
this works all fine and dandy, shows up as a share under the computer
"test" in Network Neighborhood. and I can do this with the rest of my
my problem is that i can map a drive to the root machine. for someone to
copy a file to say excelldent (from above) they have to map a drive to
Is there a map to map a drive letter to the root machine. Or even make a
dummy share that i can map a drive to, and put all my real shares
underneath that dummy share.
