Check this tutorial on Ubuntu official site: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/samba-fileserver.html; and its next page about security as well: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/samba-fileprint-security.html.

Howerver while setting up the share dir, I suggest you do not follow the tutorial to set owner as nobody:nogroup, bucause this may make this dir not writable for other users. Instead, you can create a new user and group: ttgshare:ttgshare, and assign the write privilege to the group ttgshare by adding this line to /etc/samba/smb.conf:
write list = @ttgshare
