Sharing files & folders to android phone


#1

I’m trying to share some files and folders to my android phone.
I’ve installed thunar-shares plugin, samba.
my samba config is as follows
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP netbios name = arafat server string = Samba Server follow symlinks = yes [share] path = /srv/samba/share browsable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no create mask = 0755 locking = yes follow symlinks = yes
i have created a thunar custom action which’s command is
net usershare add %n %f “” Everyone:F guest_ok=y && chmod 777 %f
I can access /srv/samba/share/ from my phone’s es file manager.
Though i cant follow symlinks.
but when i share a folder using thunar it is not shown in the phone.
in the properties of the folder, the share tab is grayed out and it says to install samba.
