When typing "testparm|less" you should see that the default value for create
mask = 0744.
Thus all new created or modified (!!!) files have these permission. See log
file (smb.conf: log level = 2). Then you see the permission that are set.
I hope this helps.

Subject: [Samba] File & directory permissions
My main problem is that I can't change the read-only attribute on a
directory (not a file) included in a Samba share from the properties
dialog box on any Windows workstation. There is not even an error
message, but depending of the OS (98, ME, NT4, 2K...), when I click on
Apply, either the tick goes, or when I reopen the dialog box, the tick
has gone. I checked the permissions and the directory (security) mask,
my configuration file is basic and I tried several versions of Samba.
(2.2.3a, 2.2.4). Of course, the user which connects has correct Unix
Here is my whole smb.conf file:
workgroup = ALCIDIAN
encrypt passwords = yes
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
I would be very grateful if anyone could help me.
