Synology: disable folder authentication 150 150 Roderick Derks

Yes it is a bit of a security risk. I disbled the authetication of the Synology folders (samba shares) like this:

 

vi /usr/syno/etc/smb.conf  [global] #       security=user        security=share #       passdb backend=smbpasswd [home] #       valid users=%U [movies] #       invalid users=nobody,nobody #       valid users=nobody,guest,@users,admin,nobody [photos] #       invalid users=nobody,nobody #       valid users=nobody,guest,@users,admin,nobody  /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/S80samba.sh restart 

The effect is that you will mount the home folder with the username you are logged into on your computer. <- this is the idea but I can’t seem to get it to work..

But the username and password authentication is no more for the folders Photos, Music, Movies, etc.

Another sideeffect: “Backup and Restore” and Filestation does not seem to work anymore due to the changed access rights. I don;t want to figure this out, takes to much time *sighs*

More info on the Synology wiki.
