Can No Longer Connect to Samba shares

Postby acestu » Fri Aug 11, 2017 3:39 pm

Hi,

I wonder if somebody could please help me with this problem please, I have a Mint server with several windows computers connected to it with shared files, however yesterday the files stopped working and have a red x next to them, when I log into Samba the files are there with the same settings, the internet works on the server and windows computers ie Firefox so I presume the switch and router are ok, could this be a windows update thing ?, I have had a search on here but can't find anything, any info greatly appreciated.

Thanks In Advance
Stuart

Hi,

I have had another look today and installed the samba gui smb4k, when I start this it has no mounted shares shown, does this mean that the shares are no longer getting mounted at boot up ?

thanks
Stuart
