Block certain file extensions on samba linux

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
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/
