Followed the guide and got Samba set up but having two minor problems.
From the Windows box, if I click on ‘network’, I don’t see my Antergos box. If I go into the Explorer windows and enter: \my ip\sharename, the share is accessible and I can view the movie files I shared out. How do I make my Antergos box, “browse-able”?
When I created the share in Nemo, I clicked the box to “allow others to create and delete files” but the Windows box can’t delete the files. Guessing I need to add permissions to some folder somewhere?!?!?
Attaching smb.conf file. (I added a few extra things in the Global section that I’ve carried over from the past.)
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too # many!) most of which are not shown in this example # # For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba, # read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from: # http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf # # Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the # Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from: # http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf # # Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) # is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a # # for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you # may wish to enable # # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm" # to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors. # #======================= Global Settings ===================================== [global] # workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: MIDEARTH workgroup = MYGROUP # server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field server string = Samba Server # Server role. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible # values are "standalone server", "member server", "classic primary # domain controller", "classic backup domain controller", "active # directory domain controller". # # Most people will want "standalone server" or "member server". # Running as "active directory domain controller" will require first # running "samba-tool domain provision" to wipe databases and create a # new domain. server role = standalone server # This option is important for security.
