    They should. When I originally made my change, trash bins weren't in the flexshare.conf and I never got round to adding them once they appeared. They are just part of the share definition.

    I am not sure that trash bins purge. There are a couple of one liners somewhere on the forum to purge the trash bin based on the number of days in trash, if you care to search for them,


    Thanks Nick your help is greatly appreciated.

    I don't use flexshares so I don't know what group issue you are facing. I had to move away from flexshares as I need a sub-folder to have restricted permissions compared to the parent.

    If you can't resolve this in the flexshare environment, what you can do is copy some or all of your flexshare definitions (/etc/samba.d/flexshare.conf?) into another file, say /etc/samba.d/myshares.conf. Then edit /etc/samba.d/smb.conf and add a line "include /etc/samba.d/myshares.conf". I added mine after the other include line. You can then remove the relevant definitions from flexshare.conf. ClearOS won't override this new file and you can change it as you want. Important to me was adding the "force group" and "create mask" directives.

  • That sounds...promising, it's a shame it has to be that way cause then it starts to turn away from a standard server to a more hack/custom server but if it works then I guess I got no other choice. Trash bins work by doing this also?

  • granular permissions, still not possible?

    I've been wondering this for a while but is it still not possible on the server side to set granular permissions, is there a way to stop flex share from forcing the group changes all the time?

    If not can a user themselves make granular permissions on the server shares themselves? Or would flexshare simply force back the group.

    @James, any luck getting a decent ldap setup yet? I have problems getting mac os x clients to authenticate to ClearOS 6.6 Openldap.
    Connecting from the specific clients with ldap editors like LDAP Admin work fine. I think I'm still missing some configuration steps on the Mac to finish authentication. It just won't let me find the ldap server. It says, "Server not responding".


    Hans I recently just had an issue with Ldap on a clients machine, it wouldn't load up at all, doing what was done in the previous ldap thread resolved nothing for me. I was able to fix it by nuking the accesslogs in /var/lib/ldap/accesslogs/ please back yours up before you do this by copying the ldap folder



    I hope this works for you. It definitely did for me.

    @Hans Ldap works now with doing the yum update, for me personally. I'd disable local network if your still having problems but it should be fine.

  • Nick, captcha is gone, that's a start! Although I really wouldn't of minded having it, provided it was just once a day I understand you have to be diligent about spammers in forums of course :)

    This morning 2 replies were added to the Zarafa how to authenticate mobile users thread. I received 4 e-mail notifications, 3 from the first post and one from the second. I am not subscribed to the thread (nothing showing in My Subscriptions and the mail icon with a "+" showing in the first post of the thread) :o


    I also got multiple e-mails from this thread I thought it was more replies but it was the same reply from before, it's very strange.. Also is there a way that if you have done captcha that it verifies you are not a spammer for the day then the next day you have to put it in again?

  • Provided your using authentication it should work unless these ports are blocked on public wifi. If they are blocked on public wifi perhaps you can use z-push instead? z-push uses port 443 which every public wifi hot spot should let you connect to. It doesn't require SMTP port to send from your mobile. To use z-push you need to create an activesync account or exchange account if your on iphone.

    z-push supports: Android, iPhone, BlackBerry. Windows phone is also supported but they don't take non trusted SSL certs so you might have to e-mail yourself clearos' certs to get it to work.
