    Hi Rasho, great post.

    I’m a Linux novice, and I have created a share called Ativos, its path is /var/www/html. My environment is a Windows Server 2012 Standard domain. Using the command wbinfo I am able to get all users/groups of Windows domain, but when I try to access the created share through a Windows desktop, it returns me access denied.

    In Webmin, I put a Windows valid group in the valid gropus and read/write groups fields, but still cannot access this share.

    Where should I doing it wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ich kann die Iptables Rules nicht setzten. Angeblich ist der Befehl zu lang. Was nun?

    If samba share is not allowed in selinux this wont work.. (default selinux is enforced)

    This step is missing in this guide..

    chcon -R -t samba_share_t /you_share_dir

    Yet easy to understand excellent guide
