    Windows 11 can't connect to Ubuntu samba shares?

    I have problem to connect from Windows 11 to my sambashares on Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTSbut to my sambashare on Linux raspberrypi 6.1.21-v8+ the connection works.

    When I tested with Windows 10 I was able to connect both Ubuntu's and RaspberryPi's samba shares without problems.
    Raspberry Pi has Samba version 4.13.13-Debian installed and Ubuntu has Samba version 4.18.6 installed.

    Can someone help me with this issue?

    Way more information is required to answer that question but first .....

    Find the ip address of your Ubuntu machine:
    Code:
    hostname -I
    Then in Win11 open explorer and enter:
    Code:
    \\the-ip-address-you-got-from-above\share-name
    What error message do you get?

    The information required to make more than a guess would be the output of these commands in Ubuntu:
    Code:
    testparm -s
    Code:
    net usershare info --long
    Code:
    hostname

    With ip adress or hostname.local (eg. ServerPC.local) it works, so this solution is enough for me.

    I have the same problem.

    All other PC's on our network connect without error but, the single Win 11 PC just chokes on it with errorcode 0x80004005

    0x80004005 is Microsoft's "We have no idea what the hell the problem is" error message.

    To rule out a host name resolution problem:

    [1] Make sure avahi is installed on Ubuntu so you can do what kenne76 did:
    Code:
    sudo apt install avahi-daemon
    [2] And for Win10/11 to be able to "discover" your Ubuntu server under Network in explorer install WS-Discovery in Ubuntu:
    Code:
    sudo apt install wsdd
    If that does nothing for you your issue is unrelated to the original question and you might want to start your own topic.
