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