Re: linux mint 19 samba woes

yeah, I had a set up already running with 18.3 which was upgraded since 17 on the computer that died, but this is a fresh install so who knows what I'm missing and that was years ago that I got it running.

its a name on the box
added a password
has access
haven't touched /etc/samba/smbusers.
