Hi,

I am accessing my Raspberry Pi 3 from my WIndows 10 Laptop through VNC/RDP.
Now, I installed Samba in RPi. I am following a tutorial for that in the following link "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDZzBDL2TTw"
I also followed a link from "http://raspberrypihq.com/how-to-share-a-folder-with-a-windows-computer-from-a-raspberry-pi/"

What I have done till now:

1. I installed Samba in RPi
2. I created a Folder Named PiShare in RPi.
3. I checked the following lines in

workgroup = WORKGROUP
wins support = yes

[PiShare]
 comment=Raspberry Pi Share
 path=/home/pi/share
 browseable=Yes
 writeable=Yes
 only guest=no
 create mask=0777
 directory mask=0777
 public=no

4. I created a shared folder in RPi with following command
                  mkdir PiShare
                  sudo chmod +777 PiShare/

5. Now when I want to see that folder from Win10 Laptop I am getting the following screen. Neither RPi nor PiShare folder is visible in my network location.
