Hi guys, I'm using Samba running on Suse Linux Ent 10 for my file and authentication server. I've created a folder called test_folder. I need userA to have read/write permission and userB to have read only permission. I've edited the smb.conf file shown below

[test_folder]
inherit acls = Yes
path = /Share/Temp/
read only = Yes
admin users = UserA
read list = UserB
valid users = UserA UserB
write list = UserA

UserA can read/write without any problem. However UserB cannot even access the folder. Shown a permission error when I double click the folder from a WinXP Client

I am not sure if order is important:

[test_folder]
inherit acls = Yes
path = /Share/Temp/
read only = Yes
admin users = UserA
valid users = UserA UserB
read list = UserB
write list = UserA

what are the permissions on the  /Share/Temp dir?
