I have huge problems with one customer, which has:
- SUSE 10 Linux server, version 2.6.16
- 5 Windows XP and Win7 clients
SHARING folders is pain in the ass, really.
For example, all users on SUSE are members of the group "users" and "share".
Shared folders on SUSE are owned by "root" and group "users"...
...BUT only first level of shared folders is visible. If Windows user clicks on any folder, permission denied!
To enable users to browse down to folder structure, I must enable OWNER, GROUP and OTHERS full permissions on all folders. If I omit OTHERS, noone can browse.
I added user "user8" to SUSE under "Users and groups".
I put it to be memeber of "users", "share" and many other groups.
Then on Windows XP I created case-sensitive "user8" with password under users.
net use \\suse-server\shares\common-files /USER:user8
but no joy :(
Also tried adding my existing Windows XP login username and password to SUSE as a new user, under "users" group...but still cannot browse folders below common folder.
Whatever I do...permisison denied.
I can only see first \SHARES folder, but cannot browse deeper.
Any idea what am I missing?
