Problem with Samba

Post by pintosal » Thu Nov 22, 2018 5:44 pm

I have a USB attached 1Gb disk, which shows up OK as usb1_1 ntfs 953867 115

But when I enter \\192.168.1.254 as indicated in the manual I get an error Windows cannot access \\192.168.1.254.

However, I can see and access the disk via FTP.

I'm using Using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, and my software version is 2.32e

Does anyone have Samba working OK? Can anyone advise me?

I just tested the function again it worked fine (I even changed the HTTP port) and I can access the my 16gb USB stick via \\192.168.1.254 (see attached screen shots) Have you tried with a different PC ??

I sorted out the problem.
The Windows 7 Service TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper was disabled.
When I re-enabled it and started the service, all was well.
Thanks
