Ahh, you must be a unix guy....

It's really very simple.  Windows NT does not have Execute permission.  If
it ends in .exe .com .bat .dll (There might be a few I'm missing). And the
user has permission to read the file, the OS will execute it.  The file
server has no way to know what the client OS intends to do with the file
when it receives a read request.

Hello all.  I've encountered a strange situation while testing samba-2.2.5.
We placed a .exe file within a samba share and gave only read permissions to
everyone.  It mapped correctly on the unix side and it appears in the NT
security box with only read permissions for everyone, but it still executes
when opened.  I've included my smb.conf file and the host is a Sun
Microsystems Enterprise 10K running Solaris 7.  I'm stumped on this one
guys.  Please reply with any ideas or suggestions.

Thank you,
