Hi there,
I successfully connected a windows XP machine with my samba server (red
Hat 7.3, samba version 2.2.3a) using SWAT.
Problem is that the files on the share aren't writeable as I would
expect. Instead, they're only visible as read only. What am I
Underneath my config file.
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from linux (
# Date: 2002/08/04 12:57:20

# Global parameters
      workgroup = 
      netbios name = SERVER
      server string = Samba Server
      interfaces =
      encrypt passwords = Yes
      passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
      passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n
      log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
      socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
      dns proxy = No
      hosts allow = 192.168.0.
      printing = lprng

      comment = Data op Linuxserver
      path = /data
      write list = jeroen, astrid
      read only = No
I've added 'writeable = yes' in the share part. But that didn't work
What am I doing wrong. I think its something small. Please help.
Thanks in advance!
