Hi, I tried to configure Samba to share a folder from nautilus-share. I get almost everything, I can share a folder from the Properties in Nautilus/Files and I can see the content shared from Ubuntu 16.04, but not from Windows.
When I access to the network section in Nautilus/Files (Ubuntu and Antergos), I can see the Antergos host in the root, but I don’t see it from the Samba/SMB/CIFS workgroup. The situation is the same when I see the list of hosts in the network from Windows 7 and 8. In Microsoft’s systems I simply can’t see the Antergos host in all cases.
This is my smb.conf file.
# 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 # # 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 workgroup = workgroup # server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field server string = Samba Server # This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict # connections to machines which are on your local network. The # following example restricts access to two C class networks and # the "loopback" interface.
