I upgraded my Dell XPS13DE from 14.04 to 18.04 after some updates broke my audio and touchpad. Under 18.04, I lost access to my NAS drive and my network printer is slow. Zoom will not install because Samba doesn't work. My router only operates with Samba 1.0 and I don't want to fool with passwords, anyway. I have had two people, one that is a Linux sys admin try to help and none of the suggestions have helped. I have removed and reinstalled all Samba components and tried various edits of samba.conf, but that did not cure the problem. Please fix/help me fix Samba. I've been fooling with this off and on for about a year.

    " I have had two people, one that is a Linux sys admin try to help and none of the suggestions have helped. " all the answers you will get are going to include those your 2 people tried. It is custom to actually list those suggestions they tried. My answer is a generic one that (acc. to my documentation ;) ) worked for me. – Rinzwind Jun 18 at 13:43
  • You almost certainly need SMB 1, not Samba 1. The current version 4 of Samba should be fine. – chrylis -cautiouslyoptimistic- Jun 18 at 23:19

Add ntlm auth = ntlmv1-permitted to /etc/samba/smb.conf in the [global] section and restart Samba with sudo service smbd restart.

And to anyone needing this: Samba 1 is disabled for security reasons in Ubuntu 18.04 and onwards for good reasons. So only use this to extract what you need and ditch the hardware.

  • Depends. If he's not using WiFi he could theoretically have a secure LAN for which he doesn't have to care. – Joshua Jun 18 at 22:06
