Hi Stephen,

I'm not a Samba expert, but a long-time samba user.
>From what you stated, I believe any user would be able to enter the share
and read/write/execute all of its contents.

The three groups of three rwxrwxrwx =

First, what the directory/file owner can do
Second, what the directory/file members can do
Third, what other users can do

So, any person with a user account and who is an enabled samba user too,
will be able to enter the directory.

To restrict directory access, many use the "valid users = user1,user2"
