ufw allow samba Please

I've been obsessed with sharing my desktop files over the home network to all the devices connected to my home router. I finally did it once as I said here. Since then, after several reinstalls and wipes of hard drives, I lost the configuration file for the original system. In short I can't make it work. I've forgotten how I did it exactly.
It turns out that samba and my samba configuration files aren't to blame.

I was doing firewall configuration files with my rkhunter setup. I noticed that I don't have any entry for samba. I added my samba rule in the firewall. I checked my smartphone file manager and there it is my shares automatically appearing and ready for use. No login required.

The firewall rule is:
#ufw allow samba
