Help configure SAMBA configuration for home network
Posted on 2009-05-08
I have a computer that is permanently on as a NAS fileserver, and as a printserver.
Ubuntu 9.04 is the OS. The printer is installed correctly. We have several computers, either with Windows or Linux.
I would want a Samba configuration that
a) shares the printer to windows and linux users, they can print with it how they want.
(ATM this works)
b) gives everyone of us (5 people) a share that only we can access. I prefer this one has nothing to do with the NetBIOS name of the computer, but that you need to login with a username and password. (so it doesn't matter what pc you use to login with)
Also, in the event something goes wrong on the system, we should be able to recover those files (is this possible if the shares are password protected?)
c) gives a public share that everyone can access and write to.
