I know, there are a lot of articles about my request but everyone is different and I am getting confused.
I’ve installed a samba server (14.04- 64 bit), the server has 1 2TB hard drive which I split in partitions, I would like to create 2 folders (say folder1 and folder 2) in / dev/sda3 (formatted as Fat32), folder1 should be accessible to everyone in the company, without password and they need full access- read, write and delete (we are an exhibition centre), folder2 should be password protected and full accessible by 2 users (say user1 and user2). What’s the best way to do this, as I am really confused from reading a lot of articles on the net (they are all different).
The other point; as we are an exhibition and conference center, we get a lot of clients who need to access the “ non protected” folder (folder1) and can’t guarantee that their devices are in the same home group as the server , what’s the best way to do this?
The shared folders should be accessible by all sorts of operating systems like Mac, Windows
