I'm trying to configure Samba running on Gentoo Linux to share my external NTFS drive with two other machines, one running Gentoo as well and the other running Windows 7. Previously this drive was connected to a Samba-enabled router (Zyxel Keenetic Giga II) and I could connect to it using the login/pass pair specified in the web interface. I had both read and write access.
Now I'm trying to configure Samba to allow anyone who specifies the valid login/pass pair to have full access. The login/pass are unique (I do not use that username anywhere else).
I managed to connect both Linux and Windows machines, but only in read-only mode. I get
Permission denied on all attempts to write, even though the permissions from
ls show that I should be able to write.
The network structure is:
sambaserv:Samba server hostname
sambauser/sambapass:Samba login credentials
myuserserv:my user login
linuxclient:Linux client hostname
myuserclient:my user login
winclient:Win 7 client hostname
Here's what I have done:
sambaserv: ls -l /mnt
... drwxrwxr-x 1 myuserserv myuserserv 4096 2 June 01:08 storage
/dev/sdc1 /mnt/storage ntfs-3g defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0002,noatime 0 0
1000 is the ID of
myuserserv. I'd like to use this drive for purposes other than Samba sharing, so I didn't specify
sambauser by issuing these commands:
useradd sambauser passwd sambauser pdbedit -a -u sambauser
$ sudo testparm Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) Processing section "[storage]" Loaded services file OK. Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions [global] server string = sambaserv log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50 dns proxy = No idmap config * : backend = tdb hosts allow = 192.168.1., 127. [storage] comment = Storage path = /mnt/storage valid users = sambauser read only = No create mask = 0775 directory mask = 0775
I have no idea how file permissions are handled considering that the drive is NTFS, but these would be okay if it wasn't.

How do I get write access under Linux and Windows?
