Windows no longer discovers Samba Pi

Fri May 04, 2018 8:44 pm

I think this is really a Windows 10 issue, but my Raspberry Pi's (running Samba) no longer show up in Windows Explorer | Network | Computers. The Pi's used to show up in Explorer just fine. File access works correctly if I type in the Pi name (e.g. \\pi\share). Maybe an automatic Windows update somehow changed a security setting?

Code: Select all

[global]
   workgroup = MYGROUP
[Share]
   comment=Share
   path=/
   browseable=Yes
   writeable=Yes
   only guest=no
   create mask=0777
   directory mask=0777
   public=yes

You probably know by now that Windows "upgraded" to Samba 3. You can no longer browse to a share on a linux machine, instead type the full path: 192.168.1.x/share name. Then save it as a favorite.

Or you can activate NFS on Windows now, GoOgle it, I forgot how.
