Hi Cornelius!

To confirm, do you know if smbd is running or not on your joggler?

You can test this by using the commands:

sudo /etc/init.d/smbd stop
sudo /etc/init.d/smbd start

The first one will fail if you don't have it running in the first place.

If the second command fails, there will likely be an issue with you
samba configuration...
