For a few months now I have tried to track down the source of error messages in my Samba logs.
The server was functioning correctly but, I kept getting messages about “unable to become connected user..”.
Well I finally solved it and the solution was actually very simple. The first thing I did was when I got few moments to have a good look at the server I changed the log level to 2 in smb.conf.
From that I was able to determine that the error was related to the Windows share IPC$. This share is really just for Windows internal use related to browsing and is not actually used for any sharing of files.
I tried adding various versions of the IPC$ share to see if that helped and what finally worked was to just add a bare bones IPC$ share as below:
- path = /home/tmp
- hosts allow = 192.168.1.0/24 127.0.0.1
- hosts deny = 0.0.0.0
…and that’s it .
Seperate subnets with a space.
0.0.0.0 is Samba shorthand for all.
