[Samba] read/write problem - access denied - Red Hat 7.3 - XP connection

One important thing.. the unix file permissions on the directory you are trying to write to. In addition to the Samba permissions, your user needs to have unix permissions as well.

  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 overlooking.


  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 *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
        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 either.


  What am I doing wrong. I think its something small. Please help.


  Thanks in advance!
