Mounting a samba share

Can someone point me in the right direction?
Have a share on the network (actually on an Asus router), that I can access by putting the following in fstab:
//ac68u-apt/Download2/ /home/External/Download2 cifs noauto,username=,password=*****,vers=1.0,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
and mounting manually, but if I try and mount it in Dolphin/Krusader, it won’t mount due to authorization probs (obviously the version number??)
Is there any way to be able to mount this using a “File Manager”?


From that information, it’s apparent that your ASUS router is using the deprecated SMBv1.0 protocol. It is possible to force the minimum samba client version in smb.conf, but there are security risks with doing so.
It would be preferable to use a server capable of supporting SMB 2.0+, but here’s how version 1.0 can be configured in the ‘[global]’ section of smb.conf…

client min protocol = NT1

Thanks, Is only internal, so if anybody can access, deserve what I get…

Yes, only you can assess the risks and if it’s private and you’re behind a firewall then I agree it should be ok. I just wanted to bring it to your attention first. :slight_smile:
