    I need help with samba (new Linux user)

    Hello.
    This is my first post. Sorry for my English.
    I have a Qnap NAS. It have an administrator account. In Fedora 27 with admin account, I can log in, from gnome files. I add an user with smbpasswd -a user, I add in smb.conf valid users = user's name but, when I try to open from gnome files I couldn't do it. I read this
    https://docs.fedoraproject.org/f26/s...t_Servers.html
    but I did not understand what I did wrong. Thank you.

    Thank you for your answer.
    Qnap has a web interface. I have accesed it with a browser and I was able to add a user. I tried few days to solve the problem with command line and the solution was so simple. I resolved the problem with help from openesuse forum.
    Thank you again.
