I have a Windows 10 share that I need to access from a Ubuntu 16.04.3 machine. I created /media/sharefolder on the ubuntu box, and shared //WINDOWSMACHINE/sharename (with "Everyone" full access permissions, "Everyone" full access security settings).
My /etc/fstab line is this
//WINDOWSMACHINE/sharename /media/sharefolder cifs uid=me,credentials=/home/me/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8 0 0
However, the share does not work:
- sudo mount -a returns "mount error(115): Operation now in progress"
- syslog errors: CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation. CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -115
Here's what I've tried
- Why is my machine unable to mount my SMB drives ("CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation", return code -115)? - disabled windows machine firewall, checked iptables and hosts.deny (default versions)
- smbclient -L 22.214.171.124: Connection to 126.96.36.199 failed (Error NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT)
- https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-926114-start-0.html - smbtree -b -N: lists all machines on network except the \WINDOWSMACHINE
- ping WINDOWSMACHINE: successful pings with correct IPs (188.8.131.52)
Any help is much appreciated!
Update: This configuration used to work fine, until I upgraded from kernel 4.4.0-92 to 4.4.0-93. Not sure if this is incidental or something related to the upgrade.
