[SOLVED] User/Password versus SMB User/Group/Password

If you are reading this and can point me to a URL or document that explains the steps to make a networked device available through the OpenWRT router, I would be most grateful?

(In my case it's a TP-Link Archer C7 v2. running OpenWrt 21.02.2 r16495-bf0c965af0 / LuCI openwrt-21.02 branch git-22.046.85957-59c3392)

There is a 500gig drive attached via USB. The OpenWRT dashboard at Services shows "Network Shares" as a configurable option "page" or "pages".

I have read where the user name and password must be the same per machine, but cannot add a user/password once ssh'd into the router's firmware.

to add a user you must install "shadow-useradd"

in ssh console
useradd Username
passwd Username

then to add that users to the SMB password you must install "samba4-utils"

in ssh console
smbpasswd -a Username
