Both my Android phone and Windows PC cannot access my Samba share despite everything being on the local network. Windows can see
RASPBERRYPI but when I try to double click it and view its contents it say the following.
Windows cannot access \\RASPBERRYPI
I have an external USB drive formatted with
ext4 and automounted with
/etc/fstab using the command. The drive mounts fine and I can create files without
UUID=123a1aa12-d272-32fa-8rd0-7sb5aa0d7e15 /externalDrive auto nosuid,nodev,nofail 0 0
The mounted folder has these permissions.
drwxrwxrwx 4 pi users 4096 Apr 3 19:46 externalDrive
The folder I've shared at
/externalDrive/localShare has these permisssions.
drwxrwxrwx 2 pi users 4096 Apr 3 19:45 localShareFolder
The settings in
/etc/samba/smb.conf are the following. I cleared all comments and default shares, but even before that I was having the same problem.
