My share looks like this:

	comment = html
	writeable = yes
	locking = no
	path = /export/html
	public = no
	browseable = no

I restarted samba and tested it. I put in the explorer:


And it worked. In the logs:

[2003/10/31 12:17:33, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(681) pc-hs-107 ( connect to service html.test initially as user sebestye (uid=1000, gid=1000) (pid 31604)

I have samba version 2.999+3.0.alpha on debian sid.

Well, I guess it's not a bug, but I don't know what samba version you
are running on your machine.

Any new sendmail hole I have to fix before going on vacations?
