I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and Im trying to connect it to my NAS. It connects fine to folders where there are not authentication needed. However, if I try to open a password protected folder it does not connect.
I use ubuntu from long time ago, since 2008, as my sole operating system for all my PCs and all other ubuntu installations (lucid and karmic) works good with this NAS (Dlink DNS-323) always. Its just this new install for 12.04 which is not working.
For reference, I found these links with issues very similar to mine:
12.04 - Can't Connect to network shares
Can't authenticate 12.04 to Active Directory Share
Can't access our Buffalo Network attached storage device
This is my /etc/samba/smb.conf file:
[global] netbios name = pc4 client lanman auth = yes server string = Samba file and print server workgroup = pc security = share guest ok = yes remote announce = 192.168.1.255 remote browse sync = 192.168.1.255 log file = /var/log/samba/samba.log max log size = 1000 encrypt passwords = yes unix password sync = yes socket options = SO_KEEPALIVE SO_BROADCAST TCP_NODELAY local master = no domain master = no os level = 33 name resolve order = bcast wins lmhosts dns proxy = no update encrypted = yes hostname lookups = yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd '%u' passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *ReType*new*password* %n\n *passwd*changed*\n
I tried different things long before typing this message:
- Install PCMan File manger as alternative to nautilus. RESULT = it didnt connect either.
Install other Desktop Environments as alternative to Unity: LXDE, XFCE, GNOME Session Fallback, GNOME Desktop. RESULT: none of them worked for my authentication issue.
Tried to use the default smb.conf file. RESULT: it did not work.
- Tried to update gvfs and componets because I read this bug: Regression: nautilus not mounting network share in ~/.gvfs
But after upgrading to gvfs version 1.12.1 I still have the same issue. RESULT = it did not work either.
Tried to update keyring and components by using synaptic. RESULT: same problem.
I also updated all operating system with "Update Manager" up to today (april 28, 2012)
After spending a lot of hours I decided to give up and ask for some help.
The only thing that did work was this command:
$ sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=NASUSER,password=****** //192.168.1.100/Volume_1 ~/Desktop/mountedfolder`
but thats not the way Im looking for.
