When I enable samba shares using NCP, I get two volumes – one is the NC root folder for the user specified in the NCP web dialog, and another is the home directory for the login (i.e., the “pi” user). Permissions seem a little off; I can read but not write to the main volume (/home/pi), and I can only write to the NC root folder – all the subfolders are read-only. Having samba shares available in the OS X Finder is awesome, but the restrictive permissions really limit its usefulness.
I kinda doubt this is an NCP issue, but I’m wondering if ncp-web has access to the SMB permissions configuration when it enables samba shares. If it isn’t, can anyone tell me how to tweak the permissions during sharing? I took a look at the main NC documentation, but didn’t see much in the way of detail there about samba permissions.
