Re: [Samba] Samba - usage restrictions on files




Hai, 

No, thats not samba that can helpout in points 2 and 3. 

2) 
https://www.askvg.com/how-to-restrict-users-from-cut-copy-paste-and-delete-operations-in-windows/ 

3) Can be done with GPO settings. 
But this is no easy task and i'll bet i'll fine a loophole somewhere if you have set everything. 

If you dont need printing at all disable printing completely on the windows pc's. 
I would enable auditing on that share and enforce printing through cups and monitor both. 

Or publish the files through a webserver and set these restrictions there, thats possible also. 

But your forgetting one very important thing here. Ok, i open a file (read only), 
and I take my phone and take a picture of the screen and print that at home. 
And gone is your protection and its not monitored. 

Re-think this. 

Greetz, 

Louis
