would be nice to explain a bit better:
where is your samba running, where do you want to reach it from (ips, routing, gateway, network, whatever...). How is/are your samba shares configured....

I think you need a separate SMB client for phone, if it is Android. Tried few of them, some of them worked, but I wasn't too happy with either one.

The most convenient option for me was CurlFTPFS (FUSE FTP file system driver) and FTP server on the phone. Danny Michaeli's FTP server is running on Android side. I have been writing and executing some scripts directly on the phone, using ScriptIt Javascript engine. Allowed me to edit files on shared drive in Geany running on PC. It is simple, stupid and robust. I don't recommend running FTP server all the time for security reasons.

On myu pc . i use Slackware64 14.2
The Phone is a Doogee Voyager 2 ( Codename : DG-310 ) with Android 5.0

and there is the content of my current "/etc/samba/smb.conf"

# Archivo : /etc/samba/smb.conf
# de Inukaze (De Venezuela)
# Sitio Web ->
# Este es mi archivo de configuracion para Samba
# lo uso con Xfce para que me permita comandamente
# Des/Compartir Carpetas en Intranet Hogareņa.
# Slackware -> `su -c "slpkg -s sbo samba xinetd intltool xfce4-dev-tools" root`
# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for ANY GNU/Linux.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which 
# are not shown in this example
# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
# commented-out examples in this file.
#  - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
#    differs from the default Samba behaviour
#  - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
#    behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
#    enough to be mentioned here
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
# "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic 
# errors. 

#======================= Global Settings =======================

  preferred master = no
  local master = no
  domain master = no
  client lanman auth = yes
  lanman auth = yes
  name resolve order = bcast host
  workgroup = REDLOCAL
  usershare allow guests = yes
  map to guest = Bad user
  security = user
  usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershares
  usershare max shares = 100
  usershare allow guests = yes
  usershare owner only = no

# this [global] come from my file -> $HOME/.smb/smb.conf
# just the above lines nothing more.

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
   workgroup = REDLOCAL

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
	server string = %h server (Samba POSIX)

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
#   wins support = no

# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
;   wins server = w.x.y.z

# This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
   dns proxy = no

# Manual :
	local master = yes
	domain master = no
	preferred master = yes

#### Networking ####

# The specific set of interfaces / networks to bind to
# This can be either the interface name or an IP address/netmask;
# interface names are normally preferred
;   interfaces = eth0

   hosts allow =
   interfaces =	eth0 usb0

# Only bind to the named interfaces and/or networks; you must use the
# 'interfaces' option above to use this.
# It is recommended that you enable this feature if your Samba machine is
# not protected by a firewall or is a firewall itself.  However, this
# option cannot handle dynamic or non-broadcast interfaces correctly.
;   bind interfaces only = yes

# Manual :
#	name resolver order = lmhosts hosts wins bcast
	name resolve order = lmhosts hosts wins bcast
#### Debugging/Accounting ####

# This tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

# Cap the size of the individual log files (in KiB).
   max log size = 1000

# If you want Samba to only log through syslog then set the following
# parameter to 'yes'.
#   syslog only = no

# We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
# should go to /var/log/samba/log.{smbd,nmbd} instead. If you want to log
# through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.
   syslog = 0

# Do something sensible when Samba crashes: mail the admin a backtrace
   panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

####### Authentication #######

	# Manual :
#	security = share
	security = user

	#username map = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

# Server role. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible
# values are "standalone server", "member server", "classic primary
# domain controller", "classic backup domain controller", "active
# directory domain controller". 
# Most people will want "standalone sever" or "member server".
# Running as "active directory domain controller" will require first
# running "samba-tool domain provision" to wipe databases and create a
# new domain.
   server role = standalone server

# If you are using encrypted passwords, Samba will need to know what
# password database type you are using.  
   passdb backend = tdbsam
   obey pam restrictions = yes

# This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
# password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
# passdb is changed.
   unix password sync = yes

# For Unix password sync to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
# parameters must be set (thanks to Ian Kahan <<> for
# sending the correct chat script for the passwd program in Debian Sarge).
   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
   passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .

# This boolean controls whether PAM will be used for password changes
# when requested by an SMB client instead of the program listed in
# 'passwd program'. The default is 'no'.
   pam password change = yes

# This option controls how unsuccessful authentication attempts are mapped
# to anonymous connections
	map to guest = bad user

########## Domains ###########

# The following settings only takes effect if 'server role = primary
# classic domain controller', 'server role = backup domain controller'
# or 'domain logons' is set 

# It specifies the location of the user's
# profile directory from the client point of view) The following
# required a [profiles] share to be setup on the samba server (see
# below)
;   logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U
# Another common choice is storing the profile in the user's home directory
# (this is Samba's default)
#   logon path = \\%N\%U\profile

# The following setting only takes effect if 'domain logons' is set
# It specifies the location of a user's home directory (from the client
# point of view)
;   logon drive = H:
#   logon home = \\%N\%U

# The following setting only takes effect if 'domain logons' is set
# It specifies the script to run during logon. The script must be stored
# in the [netlogon] share
# NOTE: Must be store in 'DOS' file format convention
;   logon script = logon.cmd

# This allows Unix users to be created on the domain controller via the SAMR
# RPC pipe.  The example command creates a user account with a disabled Unix
# password; please adapt to your needs
; add user script = /usr/sbin/adduser --quiet --disabled-password --gecos "" %u

# This allows machine accounts to be created on the domain controller via the 
# SAMR RPC pipe.  
# The following assumes a "machines" group exists on the system
; add machine script  = /usr/sbin/useradd -g machines -c "%u machine account" -d /var/lib/samba -s /bin/false %u

# RPC pipe.  
; add group script = /usr/sbin/addgroup --force-badname %g

############ Misc ############

# Using the following line enables you to customise your configuration
# on a per machine basis. The %m gets replaced with the netbios name
# of the machine that is connecting

# Manual Add User Controls :
	usershare allow guests = Yes
	usershare owner only = False

# Allow users who've been granted usershare privileges to create
# public shares, not just authenticated ones
   usershare allow guests = yes

#======================= Share Definitions =======================

# to enable the default home directory shares. This will share each
# user's home directory as \\server\username
wins support = no
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no

# By default, the home directories are exported read-only. Change the

# Directory creation mask is set to 0700 for security reasons. If you want to
# create dirs. with group=rw permissions, set next parameter to 0775.
   directory mask = 0755

# By default, \\server\username shares can be connected to by anyone
# with access to the samba server.
# Un-comment the following parameter to make sure that only "username"
# can connect to \\server\username
# This might need tweaking when using external authentication schemes
;   valid users = %S

;   guest ok = yes
;   read only = yes

# Un-comment the following and create the profiles directory to store

# Windows clients look for this share name as a source of downloadable
# printer drivers
   comment = Printer Drivers
   path = /var/lib/samba/printers
   browseable = no
   read only = yes
   guest ok = yes

# Uncomment to allow remote administration of Windows print drivers.

# Please note that you also need to set appropriate Unix permissions
# to the drivers directory for these users to have write rights in it
;   write list = root, @lpadmin
I just want to access for example from the my father pc (Windows 7) via "Windows Explorer : Network" the ip of my father pc is : /

The Gateway of the main network is : and in the phone is (ever)
