Access Denied to create folder


I just installed samba server when I try to make any folder or copy something in the samba shared folder it gives me message ACCESS DENIED
I have given 777 permissions to that folder.

Samba Permissions, too

You also have to set up samba's permissions for the user who will access the folder.

excerpt from /etc/samba/smb.conf. I believe that writeable and valid users are the key fields to set.

comment = workstation ics
path = /home/ics
writeable = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = your_user_name
