Question: I installed and configured samba share on Ubuntu, now from a windows machine i can see the shared folders but i can not access them, how i can resolve this?
Open terminal and run the following command to edit samba config file
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
Look for these lines Then change
wins support = no name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast
and change them to look something like this:
wins support = yes name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast
Now restart samba
sudo service smbd restart
And is done.
