Re: Can't connect through SMB to NAS suddenly

CIFS was the name given to the very first iteration of the smb protocol. It was later updated and renamed SMB 1.0. The original CIFS is no longer used. mount.cifs however is something entirely different. It's part of the Linux kernel and those developers kept the name CIFS - problably becase it has ...

Re: "On behalf of WINDOWS" - in MINT 19.3

Perhaps no words are needed on your end of this issue but what you posted is the equivalent of "This don't work good".

I betcha if you were to post the output of the following commands someone here might actually respond:

Code: Select all

sudo blkid -c /dev/null -o list

Code: Select all

cat /etc/fstab

Re: Samba ???

Then you need to use the built in Virtual Box Shared Folders item in guest settings.. From what I read, this method is a one-way share = Guest can see/access Host, but not the other way around. Only if you set up Network in the VBox guest as NAT instead of Bridged Adapter - if we are talking about ...

Re: Share & Permissions Disappear Overnight

Last question: I had assumed for some reason that this partition resided on a physical hard drive internal to your system and not something attached via USB. If that is correct then you should be good to go. If it's a USB attached hard drive I would add nofail to your list of options in the event th...

Re: How to see/access my Mint laptop from Windows Network

Windows 10 cannot "discover" any network server that relies on NetBIOS because Win10 disables SMBv1 on the client side. That means Linux among other things. And although WIn10 cannot discover Linux via an avahi announcement it can connect to one using the underlying protocol ( mDNS ) if done explici...

Re: How to see/access my Mint laptop from Windows Network

What version of Mint are you using? And what version of Windows are you using? The creation of the avahi samba.service file is unnecessary if you are using Mint 19 since samba does the equivalent automatically. And if the goal is for a Windows machine to be able to "discover" the Mint machine the ad...

Re: LM19.3 includes Samba?

Unfortunately your smb.conf file looks pretty much how it's supposed to look. If you are using legacy windows the key here was the addition of name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins . The "Bad User" is one that does not have a entry in the samba password database. That user is then "mapped" to...

Re: LM19.3 includes Samba?

I realise there may be reasons way too complicated for me to understand but it is interesting to me that LM would include the client part but not the server part. One would think it would be all or nothing. Once upon a time Mint did install both by default. But then it was removed in some release b...

Re: LM19.3 includes Samba?

So, if I am not mistaken, when I installed Samba, I enabled the machine acting as a server (sharing files) but I broke something and it stopped being able to access Windows servers as a client. Does this sound right? That seems to match your symptoms but installing the samba package should have no ...

Re: LM19.3 includes Samba?

Mint has a samba client library installed by default: libsmbclient . for access to another server That is installed by default because gvfs-backends requires it. Mint also installs the smbclient utility although I'm not sure why. On the plus side that utility also installs smb.conf which comes in ha...

while it already auto-mounts to /media/iain/bc776cd0-4dae-42df-9d6c-6f9aa696ea91 when I plug it in, so I figure I don't really need it in fstab at all, In your particular situation you do need to have it mount somewhere else. /media/ian was created by the system with special permissions imposed on ...
