Samba Network Share Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I've got a storage / Plex media server running on my local network, running Ubuntu 14.04 and I want to map one of it's drives to use as a network share on my Windows machines.

I've installed and configured Samba, but for some reason, I always get an issue when trying to map the drive on the Windows side.


It's always an 'incorrect network password' issue.


To clarify: I have no domain controller or domain, this is a home network. The folder/drive mapped in the samba config is properly permissed to be used. I have created a user on the linux server and given it the right permissions. I have run sambapasswd -a <user> for the user to set up it's samba credentials. I have disabled LAN encryption of SMB credentials in my Windows group policies.


Can anyone help me out?
