|Not sure what to make of this. I've just installed 2.08 on a Lenovo machine, mainly to use it as a NAS. Its being accessed by another Lenovo machine, which dual boots Windows 7 and Xubuntu 14.04.
From Windows I have no problem accessing the Samba share that I set up. I've set security to 'user' and created a user on the SMS machine, added that users password to the samba password file. Under Windows, once the user name and password had been entered, no problems opening the share on the SMS machine.
Xubuntu is another matter. If I use Thuar to browse the network, I can see the machine, but any attempt to open it fails with a "failed to retrieve share list from server. Timeout".
Attempting to mount the share from the command line with:
|mount -t cifs //192.168.1.10/files /mnt/smb -o user=xxy%ppp |
fails with this error:
|mount: block device //192.168.1.10/files is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: cannot mount block device //192.168.1.10/files read-only
I suspect that the prolem is mainly Xubuntu. I was able to access the share from my laptop with either Win 7 or Arch Linux, though the first time I attempted to access it from Arch I got a permission denied message.
Any ideas what to look for? I don't have much experience with Ubuntu in any form any more, but this is something of a show-stopper.
