I'm trying to set up Samba and am having access issues.
I can only share directories in /usr and /tmp; i.e I cannot share my home directory. That is if I create a share for /home/tom then if I try to access /home/tom on a windows machine I get access denied.
So I created a directory /usr/data and I share this. This directory is visible on Windows but I cannot write to this directory; I get an access denied issue.
My samba server is Fedora 11. I've tried windows XP and Vista Clients. I've tried mounting it on linux and have the same issues.
