I am facing a problem which I am not able to resolve until now with any help I got on net from forums etc.
I have a network which has 7 Ubuntu machines and 3 Windows machines
Ubuntu version is 16.04 LTS and 2 Windows are on 8.1 and one on Windows 7
one of the Ubuntu desktop I am trying to convert as a file server for all.
the folder which I wanted to share i shared it via right click - properties - local network share
smb.conf I shared my home directories as browsable, guest ok, and create and directory mask 0775.
All computers are on same workgroup.
All Ubuntu machines are working perfectly fine.
Windows machines are also able to see the computer on network and shares on computer.
Windows pc can connect to the samba share but loses the connection after a while which then is unable to connect.
I have to log off from the Windows pc and log in again but same problem persists
It shows the message that you may not have access to this network resource
or no such file or directory exist
or invalid name or directory.
