Ubuntu Unable to access Samba share with Ubuntu on Win7

I have an issue with my Samba share - I am unable to write to it, edit a file or rename a folder etc within Windows.

I am using Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 and this is my Samba config.

I can connect to the /sylius directory no problem (no password required), but I cannot save to it.

Is there an issue with my Samba config or is this a Windows configuration problem?

This is the error I get:


vagrant@sylius:~$ cat /etc/samba/smb.conf

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: MIDEARTH

# Interfaces lets you configure Samba to use multiple interfaces
# If you have multiple network interfaces then you can list the ones
# you want to listen on (never omit localhost)
# Hosts Allow/Hosts Deny lets you restrict who can connect, and you can
# specifiy it as a per share option as well

Ordinary Linux file permissions still apply here. If the Linux user they become (presumably, 'vagrant' here) does not have write permission to the folder, they cannot write to it.

you could share with extra rights for the user.

Also there was some registry editing required in Win 7. May be not in Professional version.
