I'm trying to set up and smb server using SambaDroid on my HTC One (M7) running Cyanogenmod 12.1 to sync certain folder on my Windows 8.1 laptop. Once the service starts running on my phone, I can see the SambaDroid appear in my networks on my laptop.
If I click it, I see the sdcard folder. However, if I try to open the sdcard folder, a window pops up that says
Windows cannot access \\SambaDroid\sdcard. If I try to map the network to a drive I get the same error. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?
My wifi network is on the wifi whitelist.
File sharing is enabled for the wifi network on my laptop.
Both SambaDroid and laptop are connected to the same wifi network.
Under 'Manage Shares' in the app, the sdcard and all its contented show up and have RW access.
In win8.1 in Network and Sharing Center I have allowed file sharing for 40 and 56 bit encryptions (the only other option is allow only 128bit)
Edit: I've seen on some threads that I need to change the local security policy, but this feature of Admin Tools is only available on the pro version of Win 8.1
