Samba provides access to the files on your B3 through the SMB/CIFS protocol. This is the network file protocol invented and used by Microsoft Windows, but can also be accessed from Linux and Mac computers.
The default configuration shares the following:
|storage||/home/storage||everyone in your network can read and write files here|
|home||/home/<username>||users created through the webinterface can access this personal home directory, only the user itself has access|
Samba also joins the "Excito" workgroup by default.
If you want to change how Samba makes your files accessible, edit /etc/samba/smb.conf
Samba support CIFS Unix extensions which means support for Unix file permissions and ownership info is available when mounting a CIFS share on a Linux System. This can be troublesome if your user IDs do not match with the ones on the B3. Your local system might not give you the needed permission - to work around you can mount the share using the noperm mount option.
mount //b3/storage /mnt -ouser=myuser,noperm
More restrictive storage
If you want to give access on the storage share to registered users only, edit your /etc/samba/smb.conf and change the [storage] section like this:
[storage] comment = Common storage writable = yes guest ok = no force group = users force create mode= 0664 force directory mode = 0775 path = /home/storage hide dotfiles = yes hide files = /lost+found/ hide special files = yes browseable = yes
