Hi folks.

For some reason my smb.conf tests just fine, but it isn’t showing up at my Mac.  The box is showing, but I can’t see anything.  It gives me an error as well.  All is below.  

https://www.unixmen.com/install-configure-samba-server-centos-7/ is the setup I’m trying.  

The smb.conf:

        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        security = user

        passdb backend = tdbsam

        unix charset = UTF-8
        hosts allow = 127. 192.168.1.
        max protocol = SMB2
        security = user
        map to guest = Bad User

        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        load printers = no
        cups options = raw

       	comment = Home Directories
        valid users = %S, %D%w%S
        browseable = Yes
        read only = No
        inherit acls = Yes

     	comment = RF /etc
        path = /etc
        public = no
        writeable = yes
        write list = @wheel
        directory mask = 0770
        create mask = 0770

     	comment = RF www
        path = /usr/share/nginx/html
        public = no
        writeable = yes
        write list = @wheel
        directory mask = 0775
        create mask = 0775

        comment = rich~
        path = home/rich
        browseable = yes
        writable = yes
        guest ok = no
        read only = no
        create mask = 755

The ‘error’ says “there was a problem connecting to the server” trying to enter as “guest”.  The users “rich” and “root” won’t allow me to even try those, with proper passwords.  

Any advice appreciated how I can get this working.  I’m looking to open remote files in BBEdit for editing on my workstation.   I have full ownership of this server.  

Cheers, Bee
