Question network share login problem

I have two computers with ubuntu 14.
they are networked together and I can see the workgroup defined in smb.conf.
but when I click on the workgroup it asks me to login.
I then enter the computer name/user under username and the password.
The login window just keeps reappearing, I cannot login on both computers and note that they have the same smb.conf, username and password.
What do I do?

You need to read a good tutorial on Samba.
Google for it a plenty of them will be returned to you.

My first guess would be that you have not created the Samba user in Samba.
I mean, the user must first exists in the OS, but also in Samba.
You do the first by useradd, and the second by smbpasswd.

But still you need to learn it first to really understand it.
