    I have a server running ubuntu 16.04. Attached to the same subnet there are 2 machines running Win10PRO. Thoo machines need to be able to "see" the server and it's files. Samba is running but, for the life of me, I can't evn get to see the server from my Win10 desktop. I simply need to map the server root to a drive on my desktop with 777 permission, nothing more I've appended smb.conf.
    This really is dri9ving me up the damn wall! Thatnks for your help.
    Start smb.conf >>>
    [global]
    map to guest = bad user
    netbios name = Labrador
    usershare allow guests = yes
    syslog = 0
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

    passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    server role = standalone server

    default = rootdir

    ; wins server = w.x.y.z

    # This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.

    ####### Authentication #######

    # Server role. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible
    # values are "standalone server", "member server", "classic primary
    # domain controller", "classic backup domain controller", "active
    # directory domain controller".
    #
    # Most people will want "standalone sever" or "member server".
    # Running as "active directory domain controller" will require first
    # running "samba-tool domain provision" to wipe databases and create a
    # new domain.

    # If you are using encrypted passwords, Samba will need to know what
    # password database type you are using.


    # This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
    # password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
    # passdb is changed.

    # For Unix password sync to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
    # parameters must be set (thanks to Ian Kahan <<[email protected]> for
    # sending the correct chat script for the passwd program in Debian Sarge).

    # This boolean controls whether PAM will be used for password changes
    # when requested by an SMB client instead of the program listed in
    # 'passwd program'. The default is 'no'.

    # This option controls how unsuccessful authentication attempts are mapped
    # to anonymous connections
