    Hi people,

    I'm actually testing SoGo ZEG

    So it's based on

    Ubuntu 12.04 With Webmin as interface

    So I have enabled Samba Windows File Sharing

    now I try to create a account to let a windows user have acces to the sharing. but I don't understand how create this account ?

    I have follow this guide
    Samba Configuration:

    but I'm stuck at the point 22
    so where can I type this command
    Code:
    “smbpasswd” username
    I have try inside the webmin Command Shell but with no succes

    Have you put "“smbpasswd” username" here because you do not want to show the username?

    In my case it would be: “smbpasswd” alan

    "Type in: “smbpasswd” username where username is a valid user on your samba server."

    At this point, experimentation needed, I am not sure about the quote marks "". If the distro is based on Ubuntu I would also wonder about sudo.
