Description Alex 2003-11-28 04:17:40 UTC
in smb.conf:

deadtime = 15
path = /samba/home/%U
browseable = no
writable = yes
veto files = .*
guest ok = no
comment = Users' home directories

Problem exist with NT machines
after deadime if finished or if smbd was restarted

user's home share is remounted as in [homes] section
Now user can see directories of all other users and take their files if no
correct unix permissions was set.
