LMDE4 cant access windows shares

Post by sjgold85 »

I clicked on the windows shares icon under Network, but it's an empty folder.

i have a network WD NAS box which shows up as an afp: protocol (but read only) (and... cups has set up the network printer ok )

*workaround*

-set up NAS as a cifs share by creating a mount point in /media and adding a new line to /etc/fstab. It works, I can provide the text if needed.

*for info*

-NAS only accepts smb version 1.

Otherwise I am having a good time with LMDE!!!!
