| I have a third party file manager that I use to get Administrator access
| to XP just like you can with konqeror. It is called FileAnt and it
| totally rocks... but I digress.
| I've noticed that I can't browse to my print$ share despite the
| following settings:
| | [printers]
| | comment = All Printers
| | path = /var/spool/samba
| | printer admin = root
| | guest ok = Yes
| | printable = Yes
| | browseable = No
| | [print$]
| | comment = Printer Drivers
| | path = /var/lib/samba/printers
| | read only = No
| Here is what is especially strange. If I click on the printer icon with
| FileAnt I get this:
| Enigma is the name of my server but what is the SID type info for?
It's a class id, not a SID.
| If I paste it into an explorer box I get the printers subdirectory also.
| Q: Is the printers subdirectory synonymous with \\Enigma\printer$ ? If
| this is the case than I am actually browseing it however I can still not
| create a directory despite the settings above.
| I've also noticed something else strange with the perms:
| | [root at enigma 0 samba]$ ls -l printers
| | total 20
| | drwxrwsr-x 2 root adm 4096 Nov 9 12:35 W32ALPHA
| | drwxrwsr-x 2 root adm 4096 Nov 9 12:35 W32MIPS
| | drwxrwsr-x 2 root adm 4096 Nov 9 12:35 W32PPC
| | drwxrwsr-x 3 root adm 4096 Dec 6 19:33 W32X86
| | drwxrwsr-x 2 root adm 4096 Nov 9 12:35 WIN40
| | [root at enigma 0 samba]$
| What is the S for?
| Somehow I doubt it is supposed to be there.
How else would you sure that the group ownership of the files will
*always* stay correct (access controls should always be applied at the
filesystem level if possible, rather than the share definition).
Anyway, you could check with 'rpm -V' and see that they are as packaged.
