Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates [SOLVED]

I wholeheartedly agree that this issue should not be labeled as "Solved." In fact, I'm really surprised that anyone would suggest such a thing at this stage. The fix needs to be addressed in the updates, and I would think that these forums serve as the squeaky wheel to keep things moving forward. Al...

Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates 4-18-2016

Just as you should have diversity in investments, you should invest in diversity in the tech world to keep in touch with what's going on. This Samba issue demonstrates how we need to be able to connect among different platforms. Not to mention that I already paid for a license for Windows 7, so I'm ...

Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates 4-18-2016

OK, update--now I feel silly, because that rollback DID work, after all. I started to use another Linux box and noticed that it wasn't connecting so I did a reboot of the Windows 7 box, and then retried the laptop in question and I was able to connect. So I repeat xenopeek's rollback fix DID work. T...

Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates 4-18-2016

Since this has become a bifurcated .. or maybe even a trifurcated(?) ... thread I don't know which method you are using to mount the Windows share. Through the file manager or through a cifs mount. As for me, when I don't use the previously established bookmark--and in this instance I'm not--I use ...

Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates 4-18-2016

I tried xenopeek's fix, but alas, perhaps the rollback to the older settings didn't quite fit my (Mint 17.3) configuration; the update reappeared, but several attempts to connect to my Windows 7 box failed, although I can reach it with two other Linux machines (that I didn't update), and a Mac. Than...

Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates 4-18-2016

I have the same issue that started when I ran the updates for my Lenovo laptop, Linux Mint 17.3 64 bit, Kernel 3.19.0-32. I can no longer connect to my Windows 7 box. However, on a Dell Micro desktop, I am running the same linux setup; I haven't done any updates recently and it's still finding my Wi...
