Re: [Samba] Encrypted samba mount on Linux




Thanks Steve for Quick response!!

*My question is*:
 => Accessing encrypted shares fully depends on kernel fix (as you
provided),
If no?
 => How can we use /etc/samba/smb.conf      "smb encrypt = mandatory" 
parameter to access encrypted shares? Because using this parameter I am
not able to access samba-shares either from windows/RHEL client

Thanks
Amit

Thanks

There are three ways to get something done:
  (1) Do it yourself.
  (2) Hire someone to do it for you.
  (3) Forbid your kids to do it.
