You can use "user/password" database setup w/ SAMBA but I prefer to use IP address's. You can specify entire networks by doing something like 192.168. or specify all the way down to a static IP.

sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf && sudo service samba restart

path = /
available = yes
hosts allow = 192.168. 10.
hosts deny =
read only = no
browseable = yes
public = yes
writable = yes


This allows the local device *loopback/* and the ENTIRE 192.168.*.* network and 10.*.*.* network. (And Deny everything else)

This shares the ROOT of the Filesystem. Not Advisable!

Note: I have had issues sharing a directory high up the file tree due to permissions. I now use BIND to BIND a top shared directory to /srv/smb.
