I was wondering if there was a good guide to setting up the file server, one which deals with configuring users and shares? I've been fighting with TKL file server, to no avail. My end goal is three separate shares, each accessable by different user groups (I'd prefer to manage at the level of groups, if at all possible, as some users may be in multiple groups).
The TLK is virtualized under virtualbox, with four folders shared which I want the TKL to use as the server storage. All four of these appear in the /media folder, so I know they're mounted in a way TLK can access them.
I used the webadmin to first set the samba server name and workgroup, and then set the various folders as separate shares, and at the same time I removed the default shares. I then went and created linux groups (after setting things up to auto-sync linux and samba groups/users); three groups in total. I then created users, assigning to each user the appropriate group(s). I then went back to the shares and set them to be read/write accessable to the groups I wanted access to each share.
AFAIK, that should work. However, I am unable to see the shares on the network, nor can I map the drive directly via "Add Network Drive" in windows or via the "Connect to Server" dialoug in linux. If I use the later I can sign in, but no shares/files are visable.
Any help - or an idiots guide - would be greatly appreciated!
