I want to access a shared folder on my linux from a windows machine. The smb.conf has this entry

        comment = QEMU share place
        path = /media/samba_share
        valid users = mahmood vb
        public = no
        writable = yes
        printable = no
        create mask = 0777

Then I added a user to samba with "smbpasswd mahmood". The folder mask is 777 as below

   $  ls -l /media/samba_share/
   total 11200
   -rw-rw-r--. 1 mahmood mahmood 11467604 Nov 23 09:53 setup.exe

As you can see it contains one exe file.
Now in windows side, I run

   c:\> net use z: \\\samba_share
   The command completed successfully

   c:\> z:
   z:\> dir
   0 File(s)         0 bytes

Is there anything that I missed in the configuration?
