I have to use a Linux server as a file server and don't know much about it. I got the OS loaded and it on the network. My google reading says for this version of linux I have to use an app called Samba to create and manage file shares. I have a few hopefully simple question for some Linux expert.
My first problem I I have somehow created a file share that I can see by accessing my Windows PC and using \\Servername
But when I right click on the folder and hit Map Network drive it gives me a username and password box. I don't know what to use. I only created one user on the Linux server and it's not taking that login info.
An providing I can get that working I have What in Windows I would call partitions but here I don't know but a 20G one and a 386G one. I'd like to share out a folder on the 386G one but in the Samba create share section the browse section doesn't seem to allow me to do that.
As you can probably tell I'm not a Linux expert any suggestion will be helpful.
