I've searched for solutions and tried numerous things but nothing so far has worked. I'm trying to access shares on an ubuntu 12.04 pc from my windows 8 pc. In my win8 machine I can see the shares, but when I try to access them I get the dreaded "You do not have permission to access..."
I have samba installed of course and I have edited the conf in numerous ways according to solutions.
(This is my first post on Linux Questions forums.)
I'm having issue SAMBA server. From Window 7, any SAMBA folders show up as empty folders. All of those SAMBA volumes are with guest access on, so any users can read and write (basically there is no security settings.)
All of the samba volumes can be accessed with Windows XP and Mac OS X.
My /etc/samba/smb.conf is# 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.
When I am in Puppy Linux, there is a drop dead simple GUI to manage Samba shares. I installed PyNeighborhood in #!. Not sure exactly what I can do with it. Are there any other Samba GUI tools I can use?When I go to my other computer, I can see the computer with the Printer share showing but not the Home share I set up.
