hide dot files

      hide dot files (S)
             This is a boolean parameter that controls whether files starting
             with a dot appear as hidden files.
             Default: _�h_�i_�d_�e _�d_�o_�t _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = yes

hide files

      hide files (S)
             This is a list of files or directories that are not visible  but
             are  accessible.  The  DOS  'hidden' attribute is applied to any
             files or directories that match.
             Each entry in the list must be separated by a '/', which  allows
             spaces  to  be included in the entry. '*' and '?' can be used to
             specify multiple files or directories as in DOS wildcards.
             Each entry must be a Unix path, not a  DOS  path  and  must  not
             include the Unix directory separator '/'.
             Note  that  the  case sensitivity option is applicable in hiding
             Setting this parameter will affect the performance of Samba,  as
             it will be forced to check all files and directories for a match
             as they are scanned.
             Default: _�h_�i_�d_�e _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = # no file are hidden
             Example:     _�h_�i_�d_�e     _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s     =     /.*/DesktopFolderDB/Trash-
             For%m/resource.frk/  #  The above example is based on files that
             the Macintosh SMB client (DAVE) available from  Thursby  creates
             for  internal use, and also still hides all files beginning with
             a dot.

hide special files

      hide special files (S)
             This parameter prevents clients from seeing special  files  such
             as sockets, devices and fifo's in directory listings.
             Default: _�h_�i_�d_�e _�s_�p_�e_�c_�i_�a_�l _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = no

hide unreadable

      hide unreadable (S)
             This  parameter  prevents  clients  from seeing the existance of
             files that cannot be read. Defaults to off.
             Default: _�h_�i_�d_�e _�u_�n_�r_�e_�a_�d_�a_�b_�l_�e = no

hide unwriteable files

      hide unwriteable files (S)
             This parameter prevents clients from  seeing  the  existance  of
             files  that  cannot  be  written  to. Defaults to off. Note that
             unwriteable directories are shown as usual.
             Default: _�h_�i_�d_�e _�u_�n_�w_�r_�i_�t_�e_�a_�b_�l_�e _�f_�i_�l_�e_�s = no

homedir map

      homedir map (G)
             If_�n_�i_�s _�h_�o_�m_�e_�d_�i_�r  is y�ye�es�s, and s�sm�mb�bd�d(8) is also acting as a  Win95/98
             _�l_�o_�g_�o_�n  _�s_�e_�r_�v_�e_�r  then this parameter specifies the NIS (or YP) map
             from which the server for the user's home  directory  should  be
             extracted.  At  present,  only  the  Sun auto.home map format is
             understood. The form of the map is:
             u�us�se�er�rn�na�am�me�e s�se�er�rv�ve�er�r:�:/�/s�so�om�me�e/�/f�fi�il�le�e/�/s�sy�ys�st�te�em�m
             and the program will extract  the  servername  from  before  the
             first ':'. There should probably be a better parsing system that
             copes with different map formats and  also  Amd  (another  auto-
             mounter) maps.

             A  working  NIS client is required on the system for this option
             to work.
      Default: _�h_�o_�m_�e_�d_�i_�r _�m_�a_�p =
      Example: _�h_�o_�m_�e_�d_�i_�r _�m_�a_�p = amd.homedir

host msdfs

      host msdfs (G)
             If set to y�ye�es�s, Samba  will  act  as  a  Dfs  server,  and  allow
             Dfs-aware clients to browse Dfs trees hosted on the server.
             See  also the  _�m_�s_�d_�f_�s _�r_�o_�o_�t share level parameter. For more infor-
             mation on setting up a Dfs tree on Samba, refer to ???.
             Default: _�h_�o_�s_�t _�m_�s_�d_�f_�s = no

hostname lookups

      hostname lookups (G)
             Specifies whether samba should use (expensive) hostname  lookups
             or use the ip addresses instead. An example place where hostname
             lookups are currently used is when checking the h�ho�os�st�ts�s  d�de�en�ny�y  and
             h�ho�os�st�ts�s a�al�ll�lo�ow�w.
             Default: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�n_�a_�m_�e _�l_�o_�o_�k_�u_�p_�s = no
             Example: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�n_�a_�m_�e _�l_�o_�o_�k_�u_�p_�s = yes

hosts allow

      allow hosts
             This parameter is a synonym for hosts allow.

      hosts allow (S)
             A synonym for this parameter is _�a_�l_�l_�o_�w _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s.
             This  parameter is a comma, space, or tab delimited set of hosts
             which are permitted to access a service.
             If specified in the [global] section then it will apply  to  all
             services,  regardless  of  whether  the individual service has a
             different setting.
             You can specify the hosts by name or IP number. For example, you
             could restrict access to only the hosts on a Class C subnet with
             something like a�al�ll�lo�ow�w h�ho�os�st�ts�s =�= 1�15�50�0.�.2�20�03�3.�.5�5.�. . The full syntax of the
             list  is  described  in  the man page _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s_�__�a_�c_�c_�e_�s_�s_�(_�5_�). Note that
             this man page may not be present on  your  system,  so  a  brief
             description will be given here also.
             Note that the localhost address will always be allowed
             access unless specifically denied by a _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�d_�e_�n_�y option.
             You can also specify hosts by network/netmask pairs and by  net-
             group  names  if your system supports netgroups. The E�EX�XC�CE�EP�PT�T key-
             word can also be used to limit a wildcard  list.  The  following
             examples may provide some help:
             Example 1: allow all IPs in 150.203.*.*; except one
             h�ho�os�st�ts�s a�al�ll�lo�ow�w =�= 1�15�50�0.�.2�20�03�3.�. E�EX�XC�CE�EP�PT�T 1�15�50�0.�.2�20�03�3.�.6�6.�.6�66�6
             Example 2: allow hosts that match the given network/netmask
             h�ho�os�st�ts�s a�al�ll�lo�ow�w =�= 1�15�50�0.�.2�20�03�3.�.1�15�5.�.0�0/�/2�25�55�5.�.2�25�55�5.�.2�25�55�5.�.0�0
             Example 3: allow a couple of hosts
             h�ho�os�st�ts�s a�al�ll�lo�ow�w =�= l�la�ap�pl�la�an�nd�d,�, a�ar�rv�vi�id�ds�sj�ja�au�ur�r
             Example  4:  allow only hosts in NIS netgroup "foonet", but deny
             access from one particular host
             h�ho�os�st�ts�s a�al�ll�lo�ow�w =�= @�@f�fo�oo�on�ne�et�t
             h�ho�os�st�ts�s d�de�en�ny�y =�= p�pi�ir�ra�at�te�e

             Note that access still requires suitable user-level passwords.
      See t�te�es�st�tp�pa�ar�rm�m(1) for a way of testing your host access to see if it does
      what you expect.
      Default: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�a_�l_�l_�o_�w = # none (i.e., all hosts permitted access)
      Example: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�a_�l_�l_�o_�w = 150.203.5.

hosts deny

      deny hosts
             This parameter is a synonym for hosts deny.

      hosts deny (S)
             The  opposite of _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�a_�l_�l_�o_�w - hosts listed here are N�NO�OT�T permit-
             ted access to services unless the specific services  have  their
             own  lists  to  override this one. Where the lists conflict, the
             _�a_�l_�l_�o_�w list takes precedence.
             Default: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�d_�e_�n_�y  =  #  none  (i.e.,  no  hosts  specifically
             Example: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�d_�e_�n_�y = 150.203.4.

hosts equiv

      hosts equiv (G)
             If  this global parameter is a non-null string, it specifies the
             name of a file to read for the names of hosts and users who will
             be allowed access without specifying a password.
             This  is  not  be confused with _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�a_�l_�l_�o_�w which is about hosts
             access to services and is more useful for guest services.  _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s
             _�e_�q_�u_�i_�v  may  be useful for NT clients which will not supply pass-
             words to Samba.

             The use of _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�e_�q_�u_�i_�v  can be a major security  hole.  This  is
             because  you are trusting the PC to supply the correct username.
             It is very easy to get a PC to supply a false username. I recom-
             mend that the _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�e_�q_�u_�i_�v option be only used if you really know
             what you are doing, or perhaps on a home network where you trust
             your spouse and kids. And only if you r�re�ea�al�ll�ly�y trust them :-).
      Default: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�e_�q_�u_�i_�v = # no host equivalences
      Example: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�e_�q_�u_�i_�v = hosts equiv = /etc/hosts.equiv
