Password protect your shares.
It's good network security practice.
Have you specified the address string correctly?
Mine are in format -> smb://(ip address)/folder
Keep in mind that folder names may be case sensitive.
Also keep in mind that showtime may not have server name resolution - others can verify that - so make sure your ubuntu server has a fixed IP address & use the IP address instead of the server name.
