Re: Cable tester for trailers

I think you are referring to the 12N plug and socket. This has six wires carrying 12V and an earth wire, testers using LEDs are readily available, so getting hold of of one of these might help.

So if you don't want your home directory to be available via Samba, do not share it.
Again acting as a 'clarifier': this means you have to remove / deactivate the [homes] section
I said basically that in my first post in this thread.

if you dont want your RPi visible in any way in the network... then run these set of commands

Code: Select all

sudo apt remove --purge samba samba-common-bin
sudo apt clean
sudo apt autoremove
You forgot Avahi, nfs etc

Re: windows 10 network mapping

Well yes, you could that, but it is probably just papering over the problem, hiding it doesn't mean it isn't there. Most rpi's have a user called rpi, so you can navigate to the users home directory with the UNC. So if you don't want your home directory to be available via Samba, do not share it.

Re: windows 10 network mapping

I take it you have a part of your smb.conf that starts '[homes]', is so, remove it along with the lines associated with it.
If unsure post your smb.conf

It might help if you posted the smb.conf from the rpi (please don't posted commented lines) It sounds like you are running Samba as a Standalone server in a workgroup, so you may or may not need a user called 'pi' on the windows machines, it depends on how you are running Samba.

Not sure if you can do this with dhcpcd, but if you remove this and install the isc-dhcp-server, you can set this up to do automatic failover. Just do an internet search on 'dhcp server failover'

However you run Samba you need users, unless you run with 'map to guest = bad user' and 'guest ok = yes'.

Have you created any users on the rpi ?

To connect to 'PiShare', Samba must know the user.

Two things wrong there, your OS version isn't 4.14.62-v7+, that's the kernel version, also you are still using XP, just in case you missed it, XP is dead.
