Having issues creating a Samba share

Trying to get Samba running and its loaded but cannot see it on my other systems. Windows shows the error with cannot communicate the server is there but not responding to connection attempts. I can get in web and ssh etc but not samba, It's debian 9,

I do have a U-Nas packaged Debian 8 test system on it and Samba works though trying to check configs between the two I cannot see exactly what the problem is.

I am getting unspecified error when trying to connect to the server \server\

Hope I can get some help on this.

Fixed it as enabling the Samba module doesn't auto enable the port in FirewallD. Spent 10 hours going back and forth before I found this by the Firewall name in name in menu catching my eye.. I'll submit a bug report on it.
