Re: samba config

Thanks.  Tried that and didn't help.

Hy Tony!

I would give one more trial. Please use the name what is defined in your /etc/samba/smb.conf in the global section with "netbios name =" If nothing is set, set something, restart the smbd and nmbd service and try with the newly configured name.

If that neither works, I will have temporarly no other idea.

Thanks. Tried with lo ip and interface ip with the same result. No change in the response.
    No log entries about this.

        Hello Tony!

        What if you use IP address instead of localhost? might better than localhost, as localhost is a
        DNS-like name, but as I know the whole SAMBA uses netbios naming
        So please try with the IP address.

        Â  Â  Hello.

        Â  Â  Maybe a minor samba config problem but searches only show
        up some
        Â  Â  very old stuff and that doesn't appear to rectify the problem.

            Once, again, Debian Stretch with samba installed.  All
        I need is to
        Â  Â  access a few files on Stretch from a win7 box, and that
        works.     What I can't get to work is the smbclient
        command to view the status
        Â  Â  of shares on Stretch.
        Â  Â  smbclient -L localhost results in a password request, then
        Â  Â  and the result is invariably this:

        Â  Â  smbclient -L localhost
        Â  Â  Enter tjm2's password:

        Â  Â  Connection to localhost failed (Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL)

        Â  Â  I've tried different users and root with the same
        result.  Tried
        Â  Â  adjusting the routing tables and using actual ip instead of
        Â  Â  localhost, also with no improvement.

        Â  Â  I'm overlooking something, but it's not clear to what that
        is.     Like I said, the connection between boxes works
        just fine with no
        Â  Â  problems.

        Â  Â  thanks,
        Â  Â  tony
