I am new to setting up Samba shares on Linux but I have a limited experience with Linux. I want to set up two users (administrator = root) and (roomate = limited account) both with passwords that have access on different levels on the two shares I have setup.
I have the drives I want shared already configured in Samba as follows
[share1] path = /share1 available = yes browseable = yes public = yes writable = yes
[share2] path = /share2 available = yes browseable = yes public = yes writable = yes
Currently when you try to connect to the server from Windows XP it asks for credentials and no matter what I supply it says invalid. I would like to make a roomate username with only read and list access to the shares, I also want to create an administrator account with full access.
If possible I would like to be able to view who is connected to what shares and be able to kick them (like Windows 2003's file server admin console) but thats not important if its not easy to setup.
