I have a Samba question and am hoping someone here can help.
I know how to use Samba and I know the config file pretty good. But what I need to find out is if there is a way to give multiple users with seperate user name and passwords access to the same Samba Share?
Say for instance I have a Share called Music and I need 5 people to be able to access this, but they all need to be able to use their own unique login and password.
Is this possible?
Thanks.

Greg,
Maybe something like
valid users=@mygroup
where all 5 users belong to that group specified.

That sounds like a good idea. Do you know the exact syntax and location of this information? Is it in the config file? I have not ran across it before. Does anyone know if this works and how to impement it?
