Edit: Scrapped my old questions as it was broad. Using this guide now:

https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf

Trying to figure things out on my own is leading me on a search engine tangent. On the flip side I could probably buy a car with my bing rewards.

In the guide it says "All TCP/IP addresses" have to be "hard-coded". I really want to understand configuring samba step by step using this guide, but searching for TCP/IP addresses doesn't give my a firm definition.

Can anyone please explain TCP/IP addresses in relation to samba configuration in simple terms?

Also, I'm running DD-WRT v24-sp2 with static ip wan connection type with a subnet of 255.255.255.250 ( should it be xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.0?).

I'm three weeks in at this point trying to set up samba, and I haven't made any progress.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is your firewall allowing samba connections?

Thanks for your reply! I used the command: /usr/sbin/setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs. on The rest of the samba permissions are off such as : samba_create_home_dirs. --> off samba_domain_controllers --> off samba_export_all_ro --> off samba_export_all_rw --> off samba_portmappter --> off samba_run_unconfined --> off samba_share_fusefs --> off samba_share_nfs --> off sanlock_use_samba --> off use_samba_home_dirs. --> off virt_sandbox_use_samba --> off virt_use_samba --> off

Is this enough to allow samba through the firewall or will configuration of SElinux be necessary?

Thanks again!

Your WAN settings should not affect the LAN settings. Leave the WAN settings to whatever works with your service provider.
