Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, or if it has been posted before. I couldn't find anything though.
If I log on to a linux server without supplying a username or password (from windows through samba), what user am I logged on as? The reason I'm asking is because I want to make that user an owner of the files, so that he/she can change the files without the need for me as an administrator to make it writeable to all. I know there is no sense in what I'm trying to do, but it's a very special case scenario. The limitation I have is that I may not change the files through chmod in any way, yet the files needs to be editable by a guest. Is this possible, assuming the files are editable by the owner (755)?
