plugins SAMBA

Post by ced21 » August 24th, 2018, 5:47 pm

I'm a french new user of IPFIRE. I just installed it on a PC for my children's school.
I try to create a shared folder using SAMBA plugins but without any success. Does someone have a link to a website with more precise description about how create it than current documentation?
Thanks a lot for your help!

Good morning ced21.

I'm going to detail the steps that I do to mount it.

1. Connect the formatted USB device (USB disk, Pendrive, Etc ...) better if it is USB 3.0 on the IPFire. If it is formatted in ext4, better than better.
2. In "Services" -> "ExtraHD" this:
3. After, in "IPFire" -> "Samba":
4. And to let you create / delete inside the folder created with the created User, you must put this inside the object created in "Shares" (with your personalization, of course):

Code: Select all

[North Secure]
path = /mnt/harddisk
comment = Share - North Secure
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
public = no
force user = samba
umask = 000
This creates a common shared folder for everyone, inside the USB device. I do not know how it is made multiuser. I hope it serves you.
