Enabling Samba Service to connect to Ubuntu using ES File Explorer in Android

Enabling Samba Service to connect to Ubuntu using ES File Explorer in Android

Trick samba into thinking that every remote user is you ( at least as far as that share is concerned ) by doing something like this:

Press Alt+F2 & Type this in Terminal

sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

In the [global] section add the following line:

force user = bob

Save the file and restart samba:

sudo service samba restart

If the above command gives error then type this

service smbd restart
