I have a fairly standard install of Samba on a fairly simple Gentoo system. (when I say simple, I mean it's "out the box" as it installed - very few modifications by me)
I have one share /data which points to /dev/sdb1, and this is nicely served to a windows network.
The question is, how do I make this share more secure by adding authentication?
Reason: Anyone who gained access to network (wireless etc.) could get uncontolled access to the contents of /data.
I can see that there is quite a bit on the web about this, but don't understand how to get it working on my setup. I see many references to mksmbpasswd.sh but this does not seem to be available on Gentoo.
Surely there's people out there who have done this... Any help (or even better a solution) much appreciated.
