I hate to make another Samba permission related thread, but this has been driving me insane for HOURS. Can't sleep....
Public works fine on my WIndows 8.1 machine. Cannot get private to work correctly. Windows just keeps saying it's not accessible, you might not have permission to access this network resource yada yada. Right after I put in my user:pass.
I've looked EVERYWHERE for similar cases and help tracking down the issue. Total overload. There is just way too much information with way too many ways of diagnosing. MAN pages are great when you need something specific, but 50 pages of parameters that you don't need is overwhelming.
Lets start with this:
"cloud" is the one I'm trying to share. Works fine if I set it to public.
Now excuse me while I take a break with a bottle of Jack Daniels and cry my frustration away
