Thread: Unable to connect Windows 10 PC to Linux shares

    Default Unable to connect Windows 10 PC to Linux shares

    I can see the Linux computer on the network devices from my Windows 10 pc, but it tells me, "The network path was not found" when I try to open it. I get the same error when I try to type in the IP address (\\192.168.1.xxx).

    I've followed the tutorial stickied here about setting up Samba. https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-the-local-LAN

    I've installed the wsdd add-on (which is why I can see my computer on the network) following this: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...for-Windows-10

    I can map the Windows 10 pc shares to my linux machine, and open those shares just fine, but I really need to be able to go the other direction.

    I should also note that my Windows 10 pc and linux pc are both connected to the same Windows domain with the same credentials.

    Here's my smb.conf file contents:
    Code:
    # smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the
    # samba-doc package is installed.

    I changed the name of my domain to "domainname" here.

    I don't know if this will help, but here's the contents of my "/etc/samba/" folder:


    Let me know what other information you need, my brain is a little fired right now.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, haven’t gone through the tutorials but one common pitfall is the firewall. Try disabling it and see if you get any better results.

    Disabled the firewall, and still no dice. I'm sure there's something simple that I'm missing because this is all new to me.
