I don't have a firewall installed, and can succesfully connect to the
server through SSH and HTTP. Could it be some other security issue?

FWIW, I originally didn't run  "smbpasswd -a nobody", but running it
makes no difference.

BTW, how can I check that Samba does use /etc/samba/smb.conf as its
configuration file?

Thank you.
