OK thanks for that, almost seems to be working now but when I try to log in I

"The procedure number is out of range".

I don't want to bore you all with a log file so if you do want to see the log
file produced by one instance of trying to log in then go to

I do notice that in that file are the lines 

startsmbfilepwent_internal: unable to open file
/usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd. Error was Permission denied
  Cannot open file /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd. Error was Permission

The file smbpasswd is indeed there, not sure why it cannot open it.

Feels like I am so close now, any help appreciated.

Cheers all
