I use two linux servers in two different networks (192.168.ABC.X and 192.168.DEF.X) who are connected to each other via VPN.

On both servers are the same folders /srv/sharedfolder. The data of this folders are synced with btsync. Both servers offers an access to the stored files for Windows clients without passwords etc. with Samba. The samba configuration is:

path = /srv/sharedfolder
public = yes
writeable = yes
printable = no
guest ok = yes
create mask = 777
directory mask = 777

After syncing the data with btsync from one server to the other a windows client in the other network can open the synced file but not overwrite it. To do that I have to set the ownership of the files on the server in the other network from 770 to 777 manually after syncing.

Is there a way to configure btsync or samba to keep the rights of the files?

I may be looking at this the wrong way, but If btsync is a process running under a user on the linux machine I would try to adjust that account's umask to match what you want btsync to create,
