Re: [rhelv6-list] Samba GUI gone?

Thanks for the reply, trying to use Webmin which I found on the Samba GUI website.  This is working pretty well except that I defined a samba share with the following:

        Writeable = yes
        Path = /HIClogs

On the server this path has been setup with rights of 777 and with the same group of as what is trying to access this from a windows box, but I am unable to write to it.  Any suggestions?

Nope, you're not. system-config-samba was never really *that* good, and it's been dropped. I used to use the heck out of Samba SWAT, but I had lunch with John Terpstra (http://www.samba.org/~jht/) a few weeks back and I griped about SWAT not being what it used to be. He indicated that it  has not gotten much developer love in a long time.
In fact, according to http://www.samba.org/samba/GUI/, the swat demo page has been offline since 2001.

Having said that, SWAT seems to still work pretty well. Install the samba-swat RPM, chkconfig swat on, chkconfig xinetd on, restart xinetd if needed, and connecto to localhost:901 with your browser. There's a wizard mode if you need it.
