[SOLVED] Problem connecting to smb share from GUI

Post by alexs20 » Thu Sep 29, 2016 9:18 am

Hi All,
I have a router ASUS RT-N66U which is configured to share USB disk. All shares are protected by user/password.
From windows 7 and windows 10 I am able to connect these shares, but not from Linux Mint 18. Caja shows all my shares in network place but when I try to open any of them it shows user/domain/password dialog and after I supplies proper username/password it does not accept it and simply pop-ups again. I also tried to mount these shares from console and it works without problems, so looks like only gui has a problem.
Tried to install Mint18KDE and Mint18Mate, but i am getting the same behavior. From console it works, from gui doesnt.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

---EDIT---
Problem solved by editing
# gksu gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

and adding in [global] section:

client use spnego = no
client ntlmv2 auth = no

Sorry but i'm having the same problem (i think), but i do not understand this solution.
Can anyone please elaborate a bit more?

My usb drive is on the router but has no password.I have access to it from android and windows, just on mint it does not show anywhere.
What do i need to do?

Thank you.
