Folder permissions denied on Mac

Sun Sep 15, 2019 12:50 pm

I'm using my Pi as a remote PLEX server, connected to my pi is an external; hard drive with all my media saved on it. This all works great except when I try to open the external hard drive folder on my Mac, I get a permission denied error message.

If I SSH in using terminal then I can open the external hard drive folder just fine, however if I do a cmd + k in finder to connect to a server then enter smb://ip address when I try open the same folder I get the error message.

I've done an ls - l and get the following result so I'm a bit stuck really.

Code: Select all

total 256
drwxrwxrwx 1 pi pi 262144 Jan  1  1970 'My Passport'

Have you mounted the external drive at all or relying on the automated mount function?

Are you running Samba to share the disk with the Mac at all?
