Re: Samba and Mint20

For some reason I'm able to get all machines in the workgroup showing and connect as normal as you would via windows network b...

Regards, Jože oh ok. just been experimenting and used the following in my LMDE4 smb.conf and seems to be working. Applied the same configuration into the following dist...

Oh dear. So there isn't a quick upgrade path in 19.3 to match to the same 4.9.5 samba version in lmde4!

Lmde4 samba version is a lot more stable and it seems to me that my m$ network is able to browse my lmde folders and vise versa but fails in 19.3 and lm20..

Re: Why does network sharing works on MX-Linux but never on Mint?

Just a guess but according to distrowatch MXLinux runs with version 4.9.5 of samba. That version of samba went end-of-life months ago and is no longer supported. It also means it didn't disable SMB1 or make all the other changes that subsequent releases of samba made. There is also the issue of the...
