Ok, I need some help from you Unix pros. I have read in these post that I need to modify the nsmb.conf file in the etc directory. I opened terminal and typed and logged into super user mode. I navigated to the /etc directory and did a ls -l for nsmb.conf. There was no file by that name. I created a file with pico nsmb.conf and typed in minauth=none. I FORGOT to type in [default].

Now when I try to edit the nsmb.conf file to add the [default] and try to save it the system tells me that I do not have permissions to write the file out. I cannot even save it to another name (no permissions). I cannot delete the nsmb.conf file with rm (no permissions)

Can anyone help?

Thanks

I don't recall how you log in as root user in Apple OSX but that is the way you can do what you are trying to do. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN IN THE OS AS ROOT, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING AND THERE IS NO GOING BACK SOMETIMES.

Thanks for the reply. As I understand it, the sudo command is suppose to give me root privileges; but apparently not all previleges. Does anyone know how to login as root?

what issues are you having with 10.5 and NASLite? I have been running 2 MacBooks in conjunction with NASLite for the past 6 months or so without any issues...?

Forgot to add that I think apple uses the name "Superuser" in place of root.

Apple makes you enable root prior to being able to actually log in under root --->

sudo is simply a unix application that allows temporary root access. typing "sudo sh" in the terminal will start a root shell - very useful, but also potentially very dangerous.
