Networking fail

Mon Oct 29, 2012 9:47 pm

I have mounted a USB hard drive and using samba successfully made it available as a shared folder on a windows 7 machine. Suddenly the drive has disappeared from the windows machine, although using a ssh link I can see the drive is still mounted on the RPi.

Windows reports the following - "file and print sharing resource (raspberrypi) is online but not responding to connection attempts".

Any clues anyone?

I should have realized that the problem wasn't debian/samba, but a windows one. Specifically - Kaspersky firewall changes.
