If you just require a standalone server that can be contacted by modern 
computers, without creating users on the machine, then you only need 
this smb.conf:

     log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
     workgroup = SIL
     map to guest = Bad User

     comment = /sambashare
     guest ok = yes
     path = /sambashare
     read only = no

This will use SMBv2 as a minimum

If you want this server to also be a client (why ?), you will need to 
create users (Unix and Samba).
