I never thought of selinux causing the issue.  I'm not getting an selinux error ?

I did a setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on

I can't see why selinux would disallow remote users to access a device mounted to a shared directory.   Am I wrong ?

Hi people.

I'm running Samba on Fedora 31.  It's working great.

I want to share a USB drive using Samba.  I've tried mounting it to a directory within a Samba share and it does work due to permission errors. 

- I create the mount directory (USB) as a normal user, thus giving it "normal" permissions.  Fore test purposes, I can r/w/x files to this directory with no problems.

- I mount the USB device to the mount directory using mount /dev/sdb1 USB.  

- I can access the USB directory from the server and r/w/x everything just fine.

- When I try to access the share/USB directory from the client, like Dolphin, it requests permission in the form of user and password.  The user and password that I use to access the share do not work.  Nor does the user and password I use to access the server.

What am I missing ?

How does one share a USB device via Samba ?

Have you checked to see if selinux is causing the permission denied issues?
