I am trying to connect to a Samba Server from Windows. I configured it accoring to the Ubuntu Docs for CLients & Servers using CLI.

comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writable = yes
create mash = 0755
directory mask = 0755
valid users = %S

sudo smbpasswd -a jm sudo smbpasswd -e jm


sudo reload smbd 

On Windows, I did:

  1. map network drive
  3. Connect with different credentials -> entered my Ubuntu Credentials
  4. Was prompted for credentials again, without errors ...
