I am trying to connect through SMB and AFP from an ubuntu 17.10 VM image to a machine accessible from my network which has both AFP and SMB enable.
I have tried to connect from both ubuntu terminal and the file explorer. It seems that I can mount the share using AFP and see the files from the share.
I get a timeout when I try to connect using SMB. Please note that I also can't connect from my windows machine to that machine using SMB.
I have checked and I can ping it also without any issue and I have created the
/mnt/ths_mtn and gave them 777 priviledges with
This is how I am trying to connect from terminal:
sudo mount -t cifs //172.16.20.110/Shared /mnt/ths_mnt -o username="guest",password=""
and from ubuntu file explorer:
Error from terminal:
mount: /mnt/ths_mnt: mount(2) system call failed: Operation now in progress.
Error from explorer:
Failed to mount Windows share: Connection timed out.
I have checked that the smb config file allows connections from guest users.
What the problem might be? is there any other configurations I could change to make this work?
