I have two servers, one running CentOS, and the other running Windows Server.

Samba file server has been installed on the CentOS machine.  I can "see" a directory on the CentOS server from the Windows Server  machine.

However the access is read only.  I can see, copy but not delete files.

I have zero experience of CentOS and Samba.  Can anyone advise me how I can change the security settings so I can also delete files?

I can start Putty and login... then i am lost.

That means that your user on the linux box didn't authenticate against your Windows server, that you connected using smbclient without a Windows username (check "smbclient --help"), or that you didn't set the right permissions on the shared folder for your user.
The fastest way to "fix" this is to give permissions on the folder shared to "everyone".
If you want to do things right, try use smbclient to connect to the folder with a Windows user, or try to log into CentOS using your Windows server to authenticate.
