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 (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 files.
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 (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 (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:
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 (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 (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
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 127.0.0.1 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. myhost.mynet.edu.au
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 excluded)
Example: _�h_�o_�s_�t_�s _�d_�e_�n_�y = 150.203.4. badhost.mynet.edu.au
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
