Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running Windows 8.1 with Debian 7.6.0 as the guest OS via Hyper-V. I am trying to set up a folder on the guest to share out with other Windows machines on the LAN including the host.
When I create a mapped network drive in Windows 8.1 I get a login prompt for machine 'debian' which is what I called the guest machine. I have user 'storage' set-up to have read/write access to the folder 'test' which is what I am trying to share.
When I enter the username/password in the Windows prompt I get the following error:
The account in not authorized to log in from this station.
BTW, all machines are part of workgroup 'WORKGROUP'.
Any help would be great. Thank you
EDIT: I will give a bit more info maybe it will help. Samba is the latest version installed via synaptic. I cannot access the share from Windows 7 or 8.1. Error message is the one given above in all cases. IP network is okay; everything can ping everything. Machine 'debian' is seen in windows explorer when browsing the workgroup. I cannot access it by clicking the icon either; same error message.
