Hello friends :) For my personal needs I have to share with my server 4 hard disk of 3 TB into my network, to make it I usually used Ubuntu with Samba, but now I wanna use fedora 23 server because I tried desktop version and I like it. To make it I configured smb.conf, I disabled firewalld and installed iptables, after I configured it, Samba doesn't work. So I configured SELinux and gave the permissions to the directories as fedorawiki suggests. When I restart Samba, I can see my server through network's directory, but I can't open it. Now I installed again fedora 23 server, because I want a "clean" system after many experiments that I make (I tried many solution that I find with google but no one solve the problems). Anyone have the same problems and know how to solve it?

It would be helpful to provide context, such as configuration files or log messages.

Frist think is disable SElinux, and Firewalld, they can only create problem when is configuring new service, Is better enable SElinux and Firewalld, when service is just running.

you can try to disable selinux with command
$ setenforce 0
$ systemctl stop firewalld

Samba server use usename and password, control that you has correct configured user and relative password for access to shared disk.

You can use google for find a good guide for configure username and password in samba server.
