I have a fairly simple requirement
I am running Debian Unstable on my Desktop and I want to provide a
folder for my Windows 7 laptop to deposit some files.
I thought that the simplest approach would be using samba on its
own, but I then discovered the existance of nautilus-share which
should make it so much easier when I want to swap around things.
You were initially correct. Running samba alone would be simpler from a troubleshooting perspective.
I suggest you try that, get it working (there are numerous tutorials on the web, forum posts, the archive for debian-user and probably a samba ML) and then compare the config to what nautilus-share is creating.
Also, more people are likely to be familiar with samba itself than nautilus-share.
We I gave up on Nautilus share and just made a bog standard share,
specified within smb.conf. That seems to work well and easily meets my
needs, so will not pursue this further.
