Hello -
I'm working on a project that when deployed I'll need wireless access for
updates / configuration changes. I've installed Samba but can't get it to
work. I can SSH and ping both the host name and IP, but no Samba.
I've searched online for help and tried everything that sounded reasonable
but I'm at a dead end. Here's some of the relevant info and I'd be glad to
do any other troubleshooting recommended. If it's not obvious, I'm way out
of my comfort zone so be gentle :-). Thanks.

protocol = SMB2
workgroup = WORKGROUP
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
log level = 2
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

server role = standalone server
passdb backend = tdbsam
obey pam restrictions = yes
pam password change = yes
map to guest = bad user

comment=pi home
read only = no
browsable = yes
create mask = 0775
directory mask = 0775
valid users = %S

share directory permissions:
pi@<mypi>:/home $ ls -l
total 4
drwxrwsrwx 19 pi pi 4096 Jul  6 15:01 pi

Win 10 when attempting to connect:
Error code 0x80070035
The network path was not found

Win 10 Diagnostics:
file and print sharing resource (<mypi>) is online but isn't responding to
connection attempts. Detected Detected

The remote computer isn’t responding to connections on port 445, possibly
due to firewall or security policy settings, or because it might be
temporarily unavailable. Windows couldn’t find any problems with the
firewall on your computer.

Some entries from log.smbd (level 2 - I could bump this up of course):
