So i can share folders ok, but not on my external HDD.
The problem is not sharing them its accessing them with a guest account.
I share them with these options,
i can access them on my pc (But that has the same credentials as the ubuntu machine). But my brothers laptop cannot access it.
I tested it and i can share them ok if their on the boot drive, but it doesn't work on the external eSata HDD?
Also using Ubuntu 12.04
