SMB/CIFS shares mounted on Fedora 13 computer - permission issue for writing
Posted on 2010-09-20
I've got a problem - I have the following lines in my /etc/fstab file (anonymised of course):
//10.3.5.70/sharename /mnt/share1 cifs username=guest,password='' 0 0
//10.3.5.93/sharename /mnt/share2 cifs domain=MYDOM,username=dave,password=hello, 0 0
I originally had made these folders in /mnt/ and chmod'ed to 777 so everyone should be able to write.
When mounted, files on the shares are able to be viewed in the file browser and from terminal, but I cannot write to the shares when I am logged in as a non-root user.
However when I sudo in the terminal and try creating a file with 'touch', this works fine.
What can I do to ensure that the normal users on the linux machine can access these shares and are able to write?
This is really confounding me!
Thanks in advance.
