Can't Make File-Sharing Work w/ or w/o USB Hard Drive

cn flag

I connected two Ubuntu machines (A=20.04, B=16.04) with a Netgear RP614v2 router. On both computers, I enabled file-sharing of their Public folder. In addition, on computer A I enabled file-sharing of a USB hard drive (Both computers installed Samba without error).

Scanning the network using Files, I could see the icons of some of the shared folders, but not that of the USB hard drive. I could not view the "shared" contents of either computer's folders and could not figure out how to actually transfer any files.

Is there a tutorial anywhere? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
