Re: RPi not visible in Windows network WORKGROUP

Sorry, but no, you are not willing to help yourself, so I am not prepared to do everything for you.
Grow up and take responsibility for your own actions, do not expect somebody to do everything for you.

Re: RPi not visible in Windows network WORKGROUP

as stated, all the mess about the complicated samba settings didn't work so far, and it's too weird to me to try it any longer.

Re: RPi not visible in Windows network WORKGROUP

The Raspbian Foundation should keep in mind that the hardware is now capable of being a true desktop computer; therefore, the software needs to be brought up to the task so that non-technical users who do not want to tinker could use features like printing, file sharing, etc. out of the box.

Re: CIFS and ACLs

The problem is that whilst you do have ACLs on the share on the NAS, they are NFSv4ACLS and as such are unknown to Linux out of the box.

If you are going to go down the guest access path then Thagrol's example is a good starting point, it just requires a few mods :D 'read only = yes' is a default setting, so it doesn't need to be there. 'public' is a synonym for 'guest ok', so you don't need both and the last one wins, which is a goo...

Re: Samba: a few days than it stops working

Out of the box, Samba doesn't know about NTFS, mainly because Unix knows nothing about NTFS.
Do you use the drive with Windows ? If you don't, then I suggest you reformat it ext4.

Re: access samba folder on router

If it is Samba version 1 then it went EOL sometime around 2000, do you really want to use something that old ?
This is something from the days when people asked 'security, what's that ?'

I cannot recommend using Samba on your router.

If you are talking about Samba built into an ISP type router, then don't, just don't. The Samba used on this type of router is probably an early version which uses GPLv2 and is likely to be modified by the router manufacturer, it is also likely to be very insecure. They will not use a later version ...

Re: Pi not visible in Windows 10 network

It is possible that if your plex server is running wsdd, it will show up in Windows 10 Network, but there would be no point, you would get denied access, because there would be nothing to access.
As has been said, you need to run Samba to have something to access.

Remove the 'netbios name' line, I am willing to bet that you haven't changed the hostname of your raspberrypi to 'pi' and the 'netbios name must be the short hostname. Also, as 'public = yes' and 'guest ok = yes' mean the same thing, you only need one. You will also need to add 'map to guest = bad u...

No, don't follow that howto, follow the official Samba one:

Your problem is probably a lack of SMBv1, this is now turned off by default and without it, there is no network browsing.

I think you should post your smb.conf, you seem to be getting exactly the opposite problem to what people normally get, that is they can connect via IP but not via hostname.
