    Can not browse windows 10 shared folders through SMB from Ubuntu 18.04.3

    I googled a lot on this issue but failed to get a solution. From windows 10, I can easily get access to my ubuntu shared folders. But in ubuntu I can't get access though the name of the windows 10 PC is listed in nautilus. I edited my smb.conf file a lot according to the suggestions found from googling. But still can't get any success.
    This is the current condition of "/etc/smba/smb.conf" file.

    Code:

    Re: Can not browse windows 10 shared folders through SMB from Ubuntu 18.04.3

    What if you use the IP address of the server rather than its hostname?

    If the IP address works, but the hostname does not, add an entry to /etc/hosts like:
    Code:
    10.10.10.10      mywin10machine
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Re: Can not browse windows 10 shared folders through SMB from Ubuntu 18.04.3

    You cannot browse to and connect to any machine that has disabled SMB1 on the server side which is what Windows 10 does.

    You may have been able to connect to Win10 via Connect to Server in Nautilus but you made things worse with this entry in your smb.conf:
    client max protocol = NT1
    Remove the line in smb.conf and reboot the box. Why you cannot just restart smbd I do not know. A reboot is required.

    Then use Connect to Server to access the Win10 machine and its share explicitly. And remember Win10 understands mDNS so you could use this in Connect to Server:
    Code:
    smb://win10-host-name.local/share-name
    Or better yet do a cifs mount of the share.
