I'm trying to set up one machine to "serve" music to several others, running ubuntu or windows. Sharing the main "Music" folder is fine (Using Sharing in Nautilus), but the sub-folders in it are not accessible. I have tried setting the file permissions on the server (all 755), but that doesn't seem to affect the situation - the Music folder is available, so are any music files directly in Music, but trying to open the folder "JazzMisc" within Music fails.
The way I have found to get around this is to separately set up JazzMisc, and many other folders, as shares; but then I have dozens of shares, rather than a folder tree under Music in which I can find what I want.
What am I missing?
