Without also seeing your smb.conf and filesystem permissions it's
difficult to tell for sure, however it seems from here that the user is
connecting as user 'nobody' which apparently doesn't have access to the
share.  You'll either need to give 'nobody' access or connect as another

Also, make sure you don't have a 'map to guest' option in smb.conf which
could be mapping the user to 'nobody' because of an incorrect username
or password.
