    XP and NAS (Samba) access


    Hi folks

    If you use XP VM's there can sometimes be a problem with connecting TO a Linux / samba NAS. Connecting FROM the NAS is OK as is connecting to or from other Windows Hosts / guests.

    In your smb.config file add

    [global]
    lanman auth=yes
    ntlm auth=yes


    Now it works !!!!

    Note this could be a security risk so another possibility if you are a Windows Guru (which I'm not) is apparently to allow XP NTLM SSP via XP registry but I don't like fiddling with registry.

    There's a TechNet article on this : (note it's old - but we are talking about XP systems here !!

    Windows 10 and DNS 320 NAS samba access issues

    Hello everyone,

    Since january 2017 approx. , i can't use my Dlink DNS 320 Nas in my desktop computer explorer (using either \\nas.ip or \\nasname). Before this date the NAS was perfectly working on the same computer.

    The NAS is fully working because on a windows 7 laptop, on IOS phone, on Android phone i can connect with Samba protocol with no issues.

    On the win 10, i can ping both the ip and the nas name, i can also access it by ftp on web admin interface.

    I'm pretty sure a windows update broke it but i really don't know how to make it work again.

  3. Samba at Risk from Wormable Bug Similar to WannaCry: Present on Many NAS boxes

    The big concern here is "unsupported" devices, as there are most like hundreds of thousands, if not millions of devices out there that run samba, but have fallen off the supported devices category from their original manufacturer. It means that they no longer receive software updates, but it doesn't mean the devices are useless. No company is going to go and release patches for devices that dropped off their supported devices list 4-5 years ago. These devices could be things like routers, web cameras and what not, in addition to just NAS appliances, as samba is used on anything that has remote accessible storage, so it's a rather scary thing, as so many of these devices have lax security. What's worse, many of these devices can't have the software updated, as it's an integral part of the firmware and changing samba version can break a lot of things.

    XP and NAS (Samba) access

    W10 pro update 1709 shares cannot be accesed FROM NAS Server (Samba)


    Hi folks

    it's definitely a windows update problem with version 1709.

    FROM Nas server -- cannot access windows shares vua samba anymore -- says timeout on xxxxx - and this comes up immediately !!!

    other windows machines have no problem.

    Accessing the server FROM windows is OK but I need to access windows FROM the server as well (auto backups from server).

    Any suggestions folks.

    I actually didn't want this last update but some how windows set to auto update.

    version is W10 pro 1709 build 16299.64

    SAMBA on server running just fine -- TV's, phones etc can all access OK. SAMBA V4 (latest) being used on server.

    Note Windows TO server works, Windows FROM server fails. I have 2 NAS servers and same problem -old Windows works but not the latest.

    Tested also disabling BOTH sets of firewalls and Windows has all the allow remote access stuff enabled.

    Is there some type of local security policy default enabled that wasn't there before. ??

    Cheers
