Server
#23
Thanks for the heads up on posting. I'll be mindful of that from now on.

I have now successfully shared my drives. Sort of. I can see the drives on my network and can open them just fine. However, once I'm in the drive I can't open any of the folders. Plus there seems to be a bit of redundancy. When I open my network I see the following:

network:///dnssd-domain-3847._smb._tcp <---This opens fine and is labeled 3847
network:///smb-server-DESKTOP-H54PD2O <--- This is my BIL's computer so I don't need to get in that
network:///smb-server-HOME <--- Quite frankly don't know what this is. It opens but does't show anything
network:///smb-root <---This is labeled "Windows Netwok>

When I open this:
network:///dnssd-domain-3847._smb._tcp

I get these folders which are on my 4TB drive:
smb://3847.local/._3487
smb://3847.local/._al-anon
smb://3847.local/._blues
smb://3847.local/._christmas
smb://3847.local/._comedy
smb://3847.local/._country
smb://3847.local/._data
smb://3847.local/._documents
smb://3847.local/._gospel
smb://3847.local/._jazz
smb://3847.local/._media
smb://3847.local/._media%20drive
smb://3847.local/._old%20time%20radio
smb://3847.local/._pictures
smb://3847.local/._print$
smb://3847.local/._recovery
smb://3847.local/._rock
smb://3847.local/._soul
smb://3847.local/._video
smb://3847.local/._wavs
smb://3847.local/._wedding

The above folders are what I am most interested in using. I can't get into them either anonymously or with my password. BTW each of the above folders has dozens of sub folders. I have each artist in their own folder and each album in it's on folder so as you can imagine the tree is quite extensive.

When I open this:
network:///smb-root <---This is labeled "Windows Netwok>

I get this:
smb:///3847 <-- This I can't open
smb:///WORKGROUP <---This I get:
smb://workgroup/._desktop-h54pd2o <-- don't need to open
smb://workgroup/._home <-- don't need to open

I hear Joe say how simple linux is but man, I just can't seem to wrap my head around it. You have been most helpful and I am incredibly grateful for all your help so far.
