    Problem to configure Samba Server

    by jfazenda ·

    I am having problems configuring Samba server in my Linux machine and I hope you can help me.

    I already had this working very well for several year in the Linux box that died recently. In the past, I could connect to the samba server and it worked very well from Windows PC’s and Android devices. After getting a new box I installed a newer version of Debian (and I guess also new version of Samba).

    Now I started with using the the same old smb.conf, but it didn’t work and I already spent many hour reading websites and trying many changes to the config file, but never being able to connect to the Samba server from other devices.

    This is my current smb.conf …

    root@jvf:/home/jvf# testparm
    Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
    Loaded services file OK.
    Weak crypto is allowed
    Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE

    Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

    # Global parameters
    bind interfaces only = Yes
    client min protocol = NT1
    dns proxy = No
    interfaces = lo eth0
    map to guest = Bad User
    netbios name = SAMBA
    security = USER
    server min protocol = NT1
    server string = Samba Server %v
    wins support = Yes
    idmap config * : backend = tdb

    browseable = No
    comment = Home Directories
    read only = No

    comment = JVFshare
    create mask = 0660
    directory mask = 0770
    force group = private
    path = /home/vmjosep/MyData/JVFshare
    read only = No
    valid users = vmjosep

      I see the valid users to be vmjosep so how are you making sure your devices identify as said user?
