Some points must be clarified in order to understand how a sharing works.

Difference between users and devices

The MyCrypNet access ensures the authentication of a device on a MyCrypNet network, it does not ensure the authentication of a user.

In order to share files, you must also have a way to authenticate the user who uses the MyCrypNet access.

SMB provides a way to authenticate users.

Difference between files sharing servers and clients

A file sharing made by SMB is a client/server architecture.

Some devices will store, check the authentication and distribute the files over the MyCrypNet network through their MyCrypNet access. They are the files sharing servers.

Some devices will just ask for a file through their MyCrypNet access over the MyCrypNet network and send the credentials needed for the files server to check the user identity. They are the files sharing clients.

Naming convention

The uppercase names below have to be replaced with the corresponding values.

OFFICE-DESKTOP It is the remote domain name of a MyCrypNet access set up with a files sharing server. It is the name of the access available on the management interface.
ALICE It is the name of the user who has to be identified by SMB in order to access the files sharing server. No whitespace is allowed.
ALICE-PASSWORD It is the password of the user who has to be identified by SMB in order to access the files sharing server.
USERS-GROUP It is the group of users having permissions to access your SMB share. No whitespace is allowed.
BOB It is the name of a second user who has to be identified by SMB in order to access the files sharing server. No whitespace is allowed.
SHARE-NAME It is the name of the SMB configuration in the files sharing server. It is used to differentiate multiple SMB configurations on a same server. No whitespace is allowed.
FOLDER-PATH It is the internal path of the folder that is shared via SMB through the MyCrypNet network.

Help

If you want to use an already created delegation, take a look here.

The MyCrypNet access delegation enables to share accesses to other users to create a layer 3 network equivalent between all users.

Step 1: The administrator sets the access to delegate

Log in on your account on the Limawi interface.

Create the access(es) to be delegated.

Select an access to delegate

On the “Your apps” page, select an access.

Click on the button “Modify or delegate the access”.

Set the email address of the person you invite

Click on “Delegate the access”.

Type the email address of the invited person in the “Email to delegate the access” field.

Enter a custom message that will be displayed in the email sent to the invited user.

Click on “Next”.

Confirmation message

The access will be modified.

Once the progress bar indicates that the configuration is made, the following message appears:

“You set a delegation, an email was sent to the invited user”

Step 2: the invited user confirms his/her agreement

Email reception

The invited user receives an email:

“Someone wants to delegate a MyCrypNet access to you”

In the message, there is a unique link as well as your custom message.

Unique link use

To confirm his/her access, the invited user must click on the unique link.

Once connected on the Limawi website (his/her connexion email can be different from the one you used), the delegated user clicks on the “accept” button of the message:

“Do you accept the MyCrypNet access delegation ?”

Confirmation message

The delegated user receives the following message:

“The administrator of the MyCrypNet access is aware, he needs to validate your delegation”

Step 3: the administrator validates the delegated access

Email reception

You receives an email:

“An invited user accepted the delegation of a MyCrypNet access”

In the message, there is a unique link as well as the email address you used to invite the delegated user.

Unique link use

Click on the unique link if you validate the identity of your delegated user.

Once connected on the Limawi website, click on the “accept” button of the message:

“Do you validate the last step of the MyCrypNet access delegation ?”

Confirmation message

The access will be modified.

Once the progress bar indicates that the configuration is made, the following message appears:

“The delegation is validated”
