Hi,

Whenever i try to do smb://192.168.x.x or any kind of ip address i get the error "Failed to open smb, cannot retrieve the share list from the server "
Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you :)

Hi,

Try to add host IP to /etc/hosts. (nano /etc/hosts in terminal and add you ip)

Another way is to edit /etc/samba/smb.conf file adding

Code: [Select]
client lanman auth = Yes
lanman auth = Yes

inside the [global] section.
