I've taken the plunge and installed ubuntu to hoping to be able to set up a server for sharing music files and running torrents. .
I have also installed Samba, and although I can see the files from my windows 10 laptop I cannot access the shared files.
Testparm look like this
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated Processing section "[printers]" Processing section "[print$]" Processing section "[Torrents]" Processing section "[Down]" Loaded services file OK.

The error on the windows says
"Windows cannot access". Have tried with both name and address, but get the same error message either way.
