Firewall like Little Snitch?

Hi, Is there a firewall for Raspbian (Buster) that is like Little Snitch. What I mean by that is; easy to configure, with a graphic interface. I would like to be able to control the inbound and outbound traffic down to the app/process level. I don't have the serious techie chops required for somethi...

Re: can't update pi

Hi @rpdom, Thanks to both of you for your replies. As you can tell, I am relatively new to the Raspberry world. A little more info. This is a NAS server for my home network. I am using Webmin and Samba on top of Raspbian to accomplish this. So far this works pretty well with the exception that once ...

Re: Sharing an existing folder using Samba

Hmm, you have this: drwxr-x---+ 5 root root 4096 Mar 21 10:42 pi This means that only root can read, write and enter the 'pi' directory, members of the root group can read and enter the 'pi' directory, 'others' are denied any access, but this isn't the full picture. If you examine the permissions, ...

Re: Sharing an existing folder using Samba

Is the share actually mounted Yes. How is it being mounted ? Was mounted automatically when I plugged into the USB port. Did you make Z1 a Samba user with 'smbpasswd -a Z1' (you would have to run this with root or sudo) Yes. What are the permissions on /media and /media/pi ? drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4...

Re: Sharing an existing folder using Samba

Hi Hortimech, Thanks for your answers. The permission thing, rwx and groups/users, I was ok with. Probably one of the few things I remember from my UNIX days. But what I can't understand is why I get message telling me I don't have access to the server when I try to connect the share, Z1_Disk, to my...

Hi, Sorry for the delay in responding. Yesterday was crazy busy. Here are the answers to your questions (hopefully): what do these commands output: ls -lad /home/shares/public drwxrwxr-x 2 root users 4096 Mar 11 13:45 /home/shares/public ls -lad /home/pi/Desktop/share drwxr-xr-x 2 pi pi 4096 Mar 11 ...

Re: Sharing an existing folder using Samba

Hi Hortimech, Thanks for taking the time to do this. Why have you got a user.map ? It is only really useful on a domain member. No idea, I didn’t add this. Will delete. [share] path = /home/pi/Desktop/share valid users = pi read only = no guest ok = yes The 'guest ok = yes' is superfluous, only the ...

Sharing an existing folder using Samba

Hello fellow Pi folk, I was wondering if an Uber Noob could get some help here? I recently purchased a 3b+ to act as a family file server. I am a unix admin from decades ago and have pretty much forgotten everything when it comes to any variant of Unix. I was able to install Stretch, Samba and Webmi...
