I have built an experimental OMV6 NAS using the excellent video from Explaining Computers HERE.
However, in the video, to keep things simple, Chris sets up OMV to be completely open to anyone to find and use, and I would like just simple password protection for anyone who tries to access the shared folder(s).
Can someone point me in the right direction as to where I find out how to do that please?
I don't REALLY want users per-se', I just want password protection on the globally shared folder(s), but if I can do it by creating a user, that's OK - I just need to know how to do it.
I am coming from a Windoze background, so please - be gentle with any Linux command-line scripts, as I am still learning the terminal and how to do things in there.
My other NAS boxes use Puppy Linux, and in the setup of that, you can configure an SMB password for root, cos Puppy is always root and does not really have users either.
Once you do that, any machine that has NOT connected to the shares before, is prompted for a password to connect, and if the password is wrong, the NAS rejects the connection as you would expect - I want to pretty-much duplicate that behaviour on OMV6.
I don't really like any NAS, that is totally open to whoever can find it on the network, although, I totally understand why Chris did his video like that - it was the KISS approach.
Simple password authentication will thwart all of the nosey people just browsing around on the LAN to see what they can find, if you see what I mean.
Thanks for any help.
