comment Login fails from Windows on NTFS-3G Samba Share
I think some of the seemingly random behaviour is due to windows 'remembering' credentials for shares, even after I've changed the share settings in Samba. During the experimenting phase, I found it much more reliable to use the windows command line "net use z: \\server\share /user:username" and "net use Z: /delete". Don't use Explorer until everthing is finalised

Now I've changed to using 'permissions' instead of 'defaults' in my fstab mount, your method using smbpasswd works perfectly. Thanks

Thanks for suggestion. It may be useful to someone, but I never liked the Wordstar style shortcuts. I may reconsider when I need a more feature rich editor.

Thanks for the suggestion. I could apt-get in Raspian. Still can't shift-select and other functions. But as @jim-paris suggested, it's likely a terminal emulator problem.

that makes sense, because Diakonos didn't work properly either. I'll have to look through the options available in PuTTY

Wow, there's a name for what I'm looking for "Common User Access" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_Common_User_Access Thanks for that!

Hmm. Odd. I was in the terminal version which I obtained with sudo apt-get install fte-terminal. I'll give it another go when I have a few minutes.

A nice suggestion, but just trying a Shift+DownArrow to select text caused a load of 'FIXME' messages corrupting the screen. The shortcuts are straight from the eighties... Ctrl-Ins for copy? Alt-Backspace for Undo? Some of the options are pure linux geek: "Copy - Append"? I shouldn't have to read the manual for a Copy command! On the plus side I liked the directory browser when you start up.

This works for me, provided my fstab mount point is set up with no security at all (mask permissions of 000). I had to work that bit out for myself :)

Tried that. I can still see the share in Windows, but cannot open it. How is the testme user granted access to the mounted folder which has owner 'pi'? From what I can tell, the masks in my fstab only allow owner and group access to the disk.
