I have a linux machine and a windows machine, the linux machine has a samba share with a .exe file on it. I can read and write files from the windows machine to the samba share, but I cannot execute the .exe file. How can I setup samba to allow me to execute it?
This behavior because of a security policy of the modern Samba. Fix by adding this line to your
[global] acl allow execute always = True
