Hello, new to all this and getting frustrated.
I have followed 2 guides on how to set up a shared folder ( NAS ) using the raspberry pi.
Each time I get the same problems. Permissions. Accessing the shared file from another machine on my network can see all the files, but does not have permission to write. Very annoying.
Using these 2 guides
http://www.howtogeek.com/139433/how-to- ... ge-device/
And then tried this
http://www.simonthepiman.com/how_to_set ... server.php
Both are very similar, just a few differences in the samba config setup. However I can't get either of them to work.
I know it is a permission problem, what is going wrong?
Out of interest, when I mount the USB drive to my newly created folder the user and group are both root? I suspect this may be part of the issue and I can't change it either.
Please some nice person help a complete new user. Is there a better guide to follow?
