In the configuration file you posted that share is not present, so I guess you posted the wrong file :)
Maybe webmin uses a separate file?

i don't really know, maybe yes, but i don't know why, right now, i entered on vlc the share, and it didn't workd with "nobody", "anonymous", or "guest" users, so i am clueless :-/

and i had to use the user root with the corresponding password, of course, and it did work everything normal

but you say it maybe uses different conf files, that maybe a hit , let me search , so i can compare and if i find something , i'll let you know

Yes, of course. If you provide root credentials it will work.
I'm using a work around by forcing user root and by limiting the access only to selected IP addresses.
It's not the right way to do it, but it has to do until I find a better solution to this problem.
