Default file sharing question about ebox

Hi all,

I have a couple of filesharing questions about ebox. I installed ebox onto my Ubuntu 8.10 64bit. Everything is fine, working properly. I enabled the filesharing modules and other modules as needed everything is okay there too.

I have one complete partition on the server that I would to use for file sharing (/srv). I would to create a folder in that partition for each share (e.g. /srv/documents).

1- Do I have to create the folder first that I want to share in the /srv partition?

2- In the folder share UI, is it the "directory under ebox" that I select? And in the box beside it, do I put in /srv/documents?

3- How do I connect to the fileshare server from my Ubuntu desktop?


Thanks

Heeter

What other options do you have in that drop-down?

The options are: "Directory Under Ebox" & "File System Path"

When I select "File System Path" and create a share (e.g /srv/music), I noticed that it edited my smb.conf file in my server.

Code:
[Music]
comment = music
path = /srv/music
valid users = @"workstations"
read list = 
write list = 
admin users = @"workstations"
read only = No
browseable = Yes
I haven't created any folders manually in the /srv partition, should I? (I noticed in the ebox how-to, it doesn't say if the folders need to be manually created)

My Windows workstations see the file server folders, but cannot access any of them, and it doesn't ask for any user/pass either.


But I am still trying to figure out how connect to the server from my ubuntu workstation without using the fstab.

If I figure this out, I will write a how-to for this ebox/ubuntuserver 8.10. LOLOL

I think eBox creates them manually, but I'm not 100% sure. IF the directory doesn't exist after you've configured the share in eBox, I'd create it manually.
