Block certain file extensions on samba linux
If you are using Samba server in your organization and want to restrict some file types to upload in shared directory. then you can use veto file to block certain file type in samba, You can restrict to upload mp3, mp3, exe, or any file types using it. Here i have shared a directory name "vishal" and block some file extentions using veto file in samba. Open samba config file and added veto file to last line of your shared block. $ vim /etc/samba/smb.conf [Vishal] comment = vishalvyas Path = /home/vishal public = yes writable = yes browseable = yes read only = no valid user = vishal create mask = 0775 Veto files = /*.exe/*.com/*.dll/*.bat/*.vbs/*.tmp/*.mp3/*.avi/*.mp4/*.wmv/*.wma/
