I have a headless ubuntu server running samba. I have a windows 7 laptop, windows 8 desktop, a lubuntu desktop running xbmc, and a samsung note2 running android. Whenever any of these computers has a terminal window open running ssh to the server(mothership) samba works perfectly for everything on the network. As soon as I logout or close the terminal window, nothing can access the shared files.
Here is the samba config on mothership:
[global] ; General server settings netbios name = mothership server string = mothership workgroup = WORKGROUP announce version = 5.0 socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 passdb backend = tdbsam security = user null passwords = true username map = /etc/samba/smbusers name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host hosts wins support = no printing = CUPS printcap name = CUPS syslog = 1 syslog only = yes [MyFiles] path = /home/<my_name>/media browseable = yes read only = no guest ok = yes create mask = 0644 directory mask = 0755
/home and everything in it is set to 755. Does anyone know how I can get samba to work properly?
