Connect to Asus router - Samba

Have an Asus router (RT-AC68U - Firmware: - recently updated, I believe).
I no longer am able to connect to the Samba shares on the router. I use fstab:
// /home/External/data cifs username=xxxx,password=xxxxxxx,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
Which has worked up until recently, but now am getting message: Unable to find suitable address.
Have there been any opensuse updates recently, or should I just be suspecting the router…?

Firewall issue perhaps?

What (if anything) is returned by the following?


If you have nmap installed, also check


BTW, can you access the samba share from any other host? You might need to check the server configuration on the router perhaps.

53/tcp open domain
80/tcp open http
443/tcp open https
515/tcp open printer
1723/tcp open pptp
8082/tcp open blackice-alerts
8443/tcp open https-alt
9100/tcp open jetdirect

No SMB + no DLNA (media server) ports open…?

and can’t access from PC or Android phone…

Yes, no samba service active. Investigate your router config.

Full factory default, and a little more stuffing around, and things ‘almost’ working properly…
