Samba not working

Post by User375 »


First of all there is mistake in documentation i think
address should be with \\ not \\\ ?

Ok so mistake is definetlly on dietpi side, because Freenas samba works fine on all of my pcs, but cant acces when i try dietpi samba.
Does not work in windows and debian.
My network ip is and i cant reach it neighter like this \\\dietpi or this \\\
Reinstall does not help.

Since its a fresh install all the configs are defaults.

I have been thinking since i am using odroid HC1 with a sata disk and i moved rootFS and my user files on said sata disk could this in anyway be a problem for samba?

many thanks for your message. Basically there is nothing special on SAMBA on DietPi. It's the standard Debian Samba package installed via apt. I did a test installation on my RPi4B without issues and I could access the share as user dietpi.

Did you changed anything on the samba configuration file? Or is it still default config? Is samba service running?
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
