Shared resources and their access restrictions are defined in the samba
config file smb.conf. For a reference see
As far as I know, samba uses the unix usernames and groups on the server
it's running on. You can refer to these groups in the smb.conf file, ie
to control access to a share. For example:
write list = @nospam.secX
Where sectionX is the share name and secX is a group of users allowed to
write to the share.
