I'm trying to set up a shared folder so that only a specific user (
steve) can access. Steve is the only user on my machine and the share is set up using Steve's account.
The share is set up like
On my local Ubuntu Desktop 21.04 machine, when I navigate to
Other Locations, double click on my local machine's name under
Networks, and double click the
Test folder, it says
Registered User, type Steve's password in, and it just re-opens the
Authentication Required required window as if I wasn't authenticated.
ls -la says the permissions for the folder are:
drwxrwxrwx 1 steve steve 0 Aug 28 19:02 Test
Have I missed something when setting up the folder share?
Not sure if it makes any difference, but
Test is on an external HDD. Also, I presume it uses Samba but I'm not sure.
When trying to access the shared network folder using a Windows machine, I also get the authentication window. I type in Steve's details, and it says authentication failed.
