The missing counter-part for this post.

    • create new smb-user pi: “$ sudo smbpasswd -a pi
    • create directory: “$ mkdir freigabeATminipc
    • set rights: “$ sudo chmod 770 freigabeATminipc/
    • edit config: “$ sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
      add at end of the file the following and save-quit (CTRL+X; y)

  • restart: “$ sudo service smbd restart
  • check if everything fits: “$ testparm

Don’t know how often I did this on several systems and still always(!) have to pick the parameters.

Check for available shares in the network via “smbtree”.
