Samba + Passwordless SSH setup



i have a generic login, named test, for the hp-ux server. this login is used by my team members and we map a network drive from our Windows client to the HP-UX server using Samba, and we use this map drive to access files/folders on the hp-ux server.

and since test is login for everyone in the team, the home directory should have the permission 777.


for setting up Passwordless SSH connection, the home directory should have the permission 700(drwx------) or 744(drwxr--r--). but with this set of permission, we cannot use the map drive.

is there any workaround for this issue?
