Yet again, something changed to break network file sharing between LM19 and Windows 10. Here’s the fix. Windows 10 could see a LM19 file share just fine, but LM19 could not see the Win 10 file shares. < Again back-dated to keep it off the front page. >
[SOLVED]Mint 19 Network SAMBA shares not shownin File Manager
Re: Mint 19 Network SAMBA shares not shownin File Manager
Can’t comment on the Printer issue but there have been changes in samba since Mint18.
Long version: Mint 19 and Samba File Sharing Changes
/etc/samba/smb.confand right under the
workgroup = WORKGROUPline add this one:
Code: Select all
client max protocol = NT1
If you have Win10 on your network and it has disabled SMB1 on the server side you will not be able to connect to it.
For some reason there were two GBLM19 computers, but this was probably an artifact of the changes I was making while trying to get this to work. After a few minutes it settled down to only one that worked from Windows 10. They both worked from Linux looking in to itself.
Here is the view from the Windows 10 system:
I still cannot ping from the Linux system to the Win 10 machines. Apparently there is a fire wall issue. Well that’s for tomorrow. I can ping the LM system from the Win 10 machines.
