    "Fun" with SAMBA on XT8 Mesh LAN (It's not working!)

    Two upfront confessions: I am a complete noob with this topic, and whilst I am IT literate, a lot of the relevant networking terminology I just don't know (For example: with as simple a thing as "\\server\share" I'm not sure exactly what each thing is, even though it's obvious! Don't get me...

    samba share name

    Hi, I'd like to edit the naming of automatically generated samba shares - root directories of disk attached to router. Share names are in format "$directory_name at $disk-name" - I'd like to use only directory_name format. I tried to find where it can be changed and I've found this...

    Solved SMB2 share does not work (SMB1 does)

    As the title says, I can only get SMB sharing to work if I follow this guide and configure both my router and system (Arch Linux) to use SMB protocol 1. Configuring both to SMB2 causes smbclient -L...

    Samba shares contantly disrupting (smbd crashing) on RT-AX68U

    The main use of my RT-AX68U besides providing a fast wifi connection is to be able to have a shared drive between two computers and few other devices.

    Samba v2.0 not working

    Asus RT-AC68U / Merlin 384.7 (same for 384.6) It really looks like SMB 2.0 does not work as well as 1.0+2.0 option. It was mentioned here earlier (here), but I observed the same issue on Ubuntu 18.04.1: it is not possible to view shared router HDD with any possible option rather than SMB 1.0...

    Increase password length?

    Is it just me, or does 16 characters just not seem long enough? Also, why are we limited to a maximum of only 5 user accounts (6 if you include the administrator)? That's obviously not a limitation of Samba. Such limitations! Is there a workaround which doesn't limit me to SSH only access...

    Custom SMB config troubleshooting

    I've added some config option to smb.conf following the wiki, and it was added, but it was added in the end of smb.conf, i.e. to one of the shares. It commonly known, the structure of smb.conf is How to add my option to the global section? Should I specify section just in smb.conf.add? In the...

    Samba share everyone write access

    I am affected by this error and cannot save image backups to the drive. The solution to this is to enable write access to everyone. What is the most beautiful way to do this for single share? Is there such control in the GUI or should I modify smb.conf via postconf script in that way...

    Account limit on Samba share, password length

    The Plus (+) icon was grayed out in Network Place (Samba) Share / Cloud Disk. I found the only way to enable it was to delete a user. There appears to be a user limit. Is there a way to expand this beyond six users? Also, I tried to enter a password longer than 16 characters, but the software...
