I’m trying to share a folder with samba but can’t access it. I could use some help.
My /etc/samba/smb.conf :
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = %h server (Samba, Netrunner) hosts allow = 192.168.121.111 192.168.121.119 192.168.121.129 127. guest account = media log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 1000 security = user map to guest = bad password name resolve order = lmhosts wins hosts bcast [Nirvana] path = /run/media/poseidon/Nirvana valid users = media public = yes writeable = no create mask = 0777 force create mode = 0777 browseable = yes guest ok = yes
User “media” has been set up with a unix and a samba password (I used smbpasswd -a media).
Now I try to access that share from the same machine it’s on,192.168.121.111. I use Dolphin to go to Network/Samba Shares.
The workgroup WORKGROUP is displayed. Opening it, I see my machine poseidon-pc, and then the share Nirvana.
Double clicking on that pops up the Authentication Dialog. I put in media for username and the samba (not unix) password, but the dialog just keeps re-popping up when I click ok.
testparam finds no errors: “Loaded services files OK”.
When I try to connect to the share using smbclient
smbclient '\\POSEIDON-PC\Nirvana' -U media
I successfully connect using the samba password and get the smb:> prompt, but then dir just produces the error message NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing * .
Another, perhaps related mystery is that I can’t share folders using Dolphins Properties/Share tab. I click “Share with Samba (Microsoft Windows”) and “Allow Guests”, and I allow media “Full Control”. After pressing ok and going back to the share tab, the permission for media has reverted to “—”.
I’m seeing an error in /var/log/samba/poseidon-pc.log that I don’t understand:
[2016/07/15 14:26:20.995918, 0] ../source3/smbd/trans2.c:3342(smbd_do_qfsinfo) smbd_do_qfsinfo: not an allowed info level (0x105) on IPC$.
I’m out of ideas.
