Description Alex Efros 2022-02-06 14:57:14 UTC
samba-4.14 and previous versions works just fine, including latest 4.14.12.
But since 4.15 I'm unable to connect to my server using Fx (
Even with `log level = 10` there is nothing in logs when Fx is trying to connect.
Another client (Debian, using `mount -t cifs -o vers=3.02`) works just fine both with 4.14 and 4.15.

I've checked both a changelog and open bugs but doesn't see anything related.

I'm stuck now, because I've no idea how to debug this without logs or anything like that. tcpdump's output isn't really helpful.

Here is my smb.conf:

    max protocol = SMB3
    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    server string = Samba Server
    hosts allow = 127. 192.168.2. 192.168.3.
    guest account = powerman
    map to guest = bad user
    guest only = yes
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/private/smbpasswd
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    log level = 10
    interfaces =
    remote announce =
    domain master = yes 
    preferred master = yes
    wins support = yes
    dns proxy = yes 
    dos charset = 866
    unix charset = UTF-8
    follow symlinks = no
    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = no
    writable = no
    comment                 = Writable Temp
    path                    = /mnt/tmp
    public                  = yes
    writeable               = yes
    printable               = no
    create mask             = 0660
    directory mask          = 0775
    force create mode       = 0660
    force directory mode    = 0775

Is there any ideas how to debug this issue?

Or is there any other android file managers with SMB support? I had to switch to Fx some time ago because of some security-related change in samba, which breaks all other android clients I used because they implement too outdated SMB protocol, but Fx uses some newer protocol…
