It's a shot in the dark, but have you set up users and passwords for samba users on server? There will also need to be a Linux user with that name and password.

The Arch wiki has a good article on this.

The older way is to use the smbpasswd file--that's the way I'm familiar with.

The example smb.conf file should give a hint as to what type of password file your Samba expects to see.

If that doesn't help, please supply the distro/version of Linux you are using. That might help.
