I'm running version 2.2.3a-12.3 of samba, samba-client and samba-common on a
Debian 3.0 server that's tracking stable (woody).
Interestingly, while I can connect and change file permissions on a samba
share with a windows client, I cannot do so from a linux box using
I assume this is a known issue, but are there any work-arounds available?
From googling around on the subject, I'm aware that the problem arises because
of the difference in how linux and windows handle file permissions; however,
what I find confiusing is why a windows client is able to change perms on a
samba share while a linux client using the same protocol is not.
I've also connected to the samba volume from another machine running
samba-cleint 3.0.0beta2-1 and have the same problem. I can see the files,
read the files, but not change the perms on the files.
