Good day every one.

    I have a network with samba 3.0.7 running on a
server. Every hour, the server downloads antivirus
updates and pushes them to all the clients on the
   My objective is to give write permission for  the
antivirus share only to this  server machine. Other 
machines should have only read permission. My samba 
configuration file is as follows:

        workgroup = pranan
        netbios name = SANTOSH
        security = SHARE


        path = /antivirus
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = yes
        hosts allow = x.y.z.      //subnet IP address
        write list =  x.y.z.w     //Server IP address

	But my problem is every client machine is            
       asked for authentication with this
configuration and the server needs to maintain login
id and password   	of each machine, which I dont want
to maintain.
Is there any way of solving my problem? if yes
	Please help me.

 Thanks in advance.
