Create folders with login prompt

#1

Post by drivth »

Hello, newbie here. Just made a home server for myself. But it seems that im still confused about permissions in folders etc.
I have a drive, mount it as storage, ufs, and created a media folder which contains my movies, the dlna service uses it so i can access it from my smart tv, all good so far.
I need to create another directory inside storage, say it a test directory, enable it as share in smb service, and can only be accessed by me with credentials. I created a user for myself, created the directory and through winscp a assigned permission to the owner (me the user) and to group. So when i try to access it not only i do not get login promnt, but i also get denied the access.
What am i missing?
