I am guessing you want to give full access to guest1 on guest1 directroy

if thats right  then

chmod 777 guest1

That worked.

Just your opinion on GUIs ....... is SWAT easier than webmin for setting up shares?

hmmm SWAT is a product for SAMBA ,

and WEBMIN is a packages to do everything  ( Server related i.e dns, sendmail, monitor, dovecot)
truth is. i dont  use any of this .. but both should be same from Sharing point of view..

since SWAT is a product under SAMBa, it should be  easier ..

Do you want to a folder where both grahamr and guest1 would share files?

If so, why don't you put both of them into the same group.  Then give the folder the same group

#So lets say you want to make a group common

useradd common

#Add both the users to this group
usermod -G common grahamr
usermod -G common guest1

#lets say /share is the folder that they want to share
chown :common /share
chmod g+rwx /share

Open in new window


Now both the users can share files in this particular folder
