Samba public users directory (quick howto)

This quick post shows you how to create a samba share for a network, every user is forced to a specific username and each file belongs to this username. This is useful when dealing with public folders for some sort of exchange between users in a network

Read/Write access  to everyone for directories and files, this is a tipical configuration for a swap area

Check it out:

comment = Public folder for my network
available = yes
browseable = yes
path = /home/public
guest ok = yes
public = yes
writable = yes
write list = *

force group = commongroup
force user = commonuser
create mask = 0644
directory mask = 0755

printable = no
