I have shared a folder on my ext4 drive mounted at
/media/data using the GUI.
Now it appears in my Places -> Network and I'm able to access it, after giving password, at smb://wim-ubuntu/ab/
However in windows I can't access the share, they see this error:
I have tried creating a user on the Ubuntu machine with username/password which match what the windows user has, but no joy... what am I missing?
The 'diagnose' button on windows doesn't really offer anything useful, it says that the location WIM-UBUNTU exists but the share can not be found.
