1. Install samba:

sudo apt install samba

2. Adding samba user and password: (must be existing user in Linux)

smbpasswd -a nameOfYourSambaUser

3. Add your shared folder the end of /etc/samba/smb.conf file:

[share name]
path = /yourSharedFolder
writeable = yes
browseable = yes
force user = nameOfYourSambaUser

You need to give permissions for yourSambaUser to access yourSharedFolder:

chown -R nameOfYourSambaUser /path/to/yourSharedFolder

If you want access without password, replace “force user = nameOfYourSambaUser” with: guest ok = yes

4. Restart samba service:

sudo service smbd restart
