Attempting to move media from Windows 10 to Ubuntu folder on the same network. I created a share user name/password and can log into the server, but have no access to the folder from Windows.

Image with error:

Well, I was able to finally access windows from Ubuntu, but not the other way around. I know the username and password are there, but maybe not associated with samba and the folder correctly.

Edit with usershare output:

  • Looked at the linked post for permission and everything looked to match up correctly. Ubuntu ---> Windows (Works) & Windows ---> Ubuntu (Still gives the no permission error on the shared folder. – Aldimere Jan 22 '20 at 21:11
  • Edit your post one more time please and add the output of this command: net usershare info --long – Morbius1 Jan 24 '20 at 18:51

The system will block everyone except aldimere from getting to anything past /media/aldimere.

You can either mount the partition somewhere else like /media/ef018901-2b4c-41f4-ba56-f17a751c0a3a

Or you can edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and right under the workgroup = WORKGROUP line add this line:

force user = aldimere

Then restart smbd:

sudo service smbd restart
