The first can be done with acls, group permissions,
read/write list or any other per-user access control
The second can be done without using
share-level security (insecurity?), by
# Make selected sdhares acessible to unauthorized users!
# so they can pick up .reg files to turn off MS encryption.
guest account = guest
map to guest = bad user
# This share contains plain-password .reg files
comment = You will find the various PlainPassword.reg \
path = /usr/local/samba/public
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
browseable = yes
read only = yes
The trick is to use map to guest, which has
some subtle behaviors: see the smb.conf.5 file
for more info. (You probably want guest ok = no
as the default and in other shares!)
