Re: [MiNT] Samba document Part 2


5. Each shared folder is given a name in [ ] brackets. I chose to enable the
Mint "home" folders by enabling the section:
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
and the tmp folder:
   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /tmp
   read only = no
   public = yes
Create Samba Users
Samba users have different passwords to the FreeMint users. FreeMint
users can be seen in /etc/passwd while Samba users are in /etc/samba/smbpasswd
To create a Samba user the FreeMint user must exist first and the Samba
daemon must be running.
Enter the command below where <username> is the required user name:
smbpasswd -a <username>
This command will fail if the <username> is not a FreeMint user (Freemint
users are created with useradd).
If everything has worked so far you should be able to start the Samba
server daemon and then connect to the /tmp folder from Windows using
the username and Samba password.
