I have a problem with writing files to a samba folder (kind of
"upload"). I'm using Windows XP on a Dell laptop. Samba version
2.2.7-3.7.2 is installed on a linux redhat 7.2 server.
I can read the files, copy them (kind of "download") to my local hard
disk on my laptop, but can't copy a file from my local hard disk to any
samba folder, even a file as small as 30 KB !!!
When I try to do this, I get the samba folder "frozen" for about 2
minutes, and then I get this message from windows :
"Impossible to copy <file name> : The access path is too long",
which is my personal translation of what I really get in French :
"Impossible de copier <file name> : Le chemin d'accès est trop long".
(<file name> is the name of the file I want to copy).
Please help !!! Thanks
Here is my /etc/smb.conf file :
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = WORKGROUP
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = Kronos Samba Server
load printers = no
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
max log size = 50
# Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See
# security_level.txt for details.
security = user
# Use password server option only with security = server
; password server = <NT-Server-Name>
# Password Level allows matching of _n_ characters of the password for
# all combinations of upper and lower case.
; password level = 8
; username level = 8
# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba documentation.
# Do not enable this option unless you have read those documents
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = no
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
browseable = no
; this was "writable" (no "e") before :
writeable = yes
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 0775
