Im having an issue with connecting to samba from windows.
This is the exact filepath im trying to connect to: \\192.168.1.242\server-sharedfiles.
Server-sharedfiles is the name of the folder i would like to share and the filepath is set in the config file to that folder like this: /home/server/server-sharedfiles/.
The error i get is that it thinks i typed it wrong.
workgroup = server server min protocol = NT1 server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) netbios name = FileServer wins support = yes dns proxy = no
name resolve order = lmhots host wins bcast
interfaces = 192.168.0.1/24 eth0 bind interfaces only = yes

[MY_SHARE] writeable = yes path = /home/server/server-sharedfiles comment = Fileserver guest account = wide links = no security = user
i have tried using \\192.168.1.242\MY_SHARE\ and that wont work either and gives this same error:
winver on my pc outputs this:
for samba vesion i get this:
server@VERUM-SERVER:/etc/samba$ samba --version Version 4.3.11-Ubuntu
