    XP to NAS / SAMBA shares


    Hi folks

    If you have XP VM's and you want to access SAMBA type shares then you'll need to add these 2 lines in the global section of the samba.conf file. (Note on the NAS / SAMBA server file. There's nothing extra to do on the XP system.

    (The NAS can usually by default access XP without problem -- this is for XP TO the NAS).

    lanman auth=yes
    ntlm auth=yes

    Then you can connect easily -- screenshot below -- no prob XP VM acessing music file of over 2TB on NAS / SAMBA server.

    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 !!

    XP to NAS / SAMBA shares

    Linux Samba settings to display Windows shares


    Hi folks

    Samba needs a different setting to display Windows or any of the SAMBA shares - especially if its version of Linux / NAS server needs / uses SMB1

    You still need to set the SMB1 option in Add features to windows of course.

    also in the samba config file ensure this line is in the global section


    [global]
    max protocol = NT1 <===+++++++++++++++++

    (Not client max protocol !!)

    what this actually does (apart from working !!! ) I have no idea but it fixed 4 Linux machines which suddenly stopped listing Samba shares under network. I saw the suggestion on some weird website - have no idea of the link though - must have been imbibing some of those nice malted fluids kari likes. !!!

    Works also with ubuntu guests as well as Hosts and Centos guests and hosts. haven't messed around with other Linux distros as I don't really use them.
