I have an Azure VM machine running Ubuntu 18.04-LTS.
I'd like to create an smb fileshare folder on the VM and then mount that folder on my local Mac. I have attempted to install samba on the VM and have it running with a created file share folder. I've used ufw to allow samba and its ports (139 and 445).
I am attempting to mount the file share using the public IP of the VM but I don't get a connection. Nmap does not show those ports open, even though the actual VM shows ufw active and allowing them.
Is there a service available that can allow me to connect to the VNet that my VM is running on? Is there another firewall layer that is blocking Samba to the public IP?
Thanks, I'm new to using Azure and to LInux as well.
