Windows shares again
So I can find all sorts of information on how to share a Linux share to
a windows machine using Samba and how to share a Linux share with a
Linux box again using Samba. I can find all sorts of examples for each
of these. I can find examples of using pam to auto mount shares on
login again from Linux to Linux, but my biggest issue is finding
documentation on gaining access to shared folders from a Windows machine
on Linux boxes.
I want to be able to do the following upon a users login:
1. When the user logs into the Linux machine, based on what group they
are assigned to, they should have certain shares automatically mounted
2. When the user logs into the Linux machine, based on what group they
are assigned to, they should have all other shares not automatically
mounted, set to such a way that they can't gain access to them at all.
3. When the user logs out of the Linux machine, all shares should be
I know I am supposed to be able to do this with pam, but I am not sure
how to do this. Do I need some kind of configuration file for the login
part? Also, does Samba recognize groups from the XP machine? I
currently use groups on the XP machine to restrict access of the users
on that machine to certain directories.
I know on my Samba server that is running on my Linux machine, I can
specify invalid users on a per share basis, which can limit the users
access to those shares. Not really sure how to do this on the windows
shared folders or if it is even possible. I guess I might have to move
all that data down to the Linux server and then run it all from the
Anyone have any other suggestions on how to work this out?
