Network with Ubuntu 16x file server and Samba shares. Windows 7 & 10 clients access the shares with Full permissions. Was able to mount share from Linux client (Mint 18.3). Connects, but read only.
mounted as: //192.168.x.x/public /home/public/Documents cifs rw,username=pubuser,password=xxxxxx 0 0
"pubuser" is the Linux and Samba account. The Windows clients connect (map) and have full permission to the share.
also tried mounting as: ////192.168.x.x/public /home/public/Documents cifs uid=1002,gid=1001,credentials=mnt/public/pubuser.cred 0 0
"pubuser.cred" is file with defined password. I get the same results using this method (read only).
Appreciate any help. I've been using Samba here for 10+ years, but with Windows clients only.
