Samba version: Version 4.1.17-Ubuntu
When accessing a Samba share in windows, I can see the share but whenever I try and access it - entering the same username and password as the Samba user created with
sudo smbpasswd -a benjamin (same as system user), I only get "Access is Denied". Here are my smb settings
