you can give access modes to your users by giving these directives in their
user = [username]
public = no
create mode = [permission in octal format eg. 0711]
directory mode = [permission in octal format eg. 0711]
don't forget to run the command "testparm"

I want to create a samba server and provide networkDear Anand,
storage for 5 group of users. I need each group to
have seperate folder on the server (ie 5 folders).But
i need all users of a group to Read/Write to their
group folder and only read permission on all the other
4 group folders. All my clients are Win 2K Pro. I am
using Fedora Core 1 with samba 3 for this.
I had configured samba and created samba users. All my
clients are able to view the share by giving
username/password. But I don't know how to give
Read/Write permission for the owner of the group and
Read only access for all other 4 groups.
My smb.conf file is below
workgroup = Software Devp
server string = Samba
hosts allow = 192.168.2. 127.
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192
interfaces = 192.168.2.1/24
#===== Share Definitions ===
comment = Mount directory
path = /mnt
read only = no
write list = @g1
All the other lines in smb.conf are commented so I
Change your share definition as below
