I don't use swat because if you make a custom smb.conf file and later do something with swat, it will change the conf file

If you like, I can help you to get samba working without swat.

Regards.

Did you create a user locually on the server and a user in samba? If not do this at the command line.
adduser <username>
passwd <username>
smbpasswd -a <usename>
Then restart samba.

I forgot you need to set the local file permissions of the directory that you want to share. Do a chmod 777 /path of shares directory. Don't change the dir to /etc/passwd. You need to set it to where your smbpasswd file is.

It should be in a directory below your smb.conf file, in a directory named private

Put it where your smb.conf file is. Do a chmod 600 to the file.
