The idea is to have a folder on my Netwalker that that is visible and open (no passwords) to the public, such as my family's WindowsXP and Mac machines, and my own WindowsXP and Ubuntu desktop and latop. The purpose is to move files back and forth, mostly pictures and documents.
I have created a folder on my Netwalker's 16-GB microSDHC storage card called "Sharenetwalker", and then installed the proper Samba packages. I also set up the proper sharing options, as I have a trillion times on other Ubuntu installs. Then I was asked to restart session. I did. But when I click on "Create Share", I get an error message: " 'net usershare' returned error 255: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. The connection was refused. Maybe smbd is not running".
Thanks in advance!
