On the Linux machine I changed the smb.conf like this:
[john] path = /root/john/downloads available = yes valid users = john read only = no browsable = yes public = yes writable = yes
The path /root/john/downloads is mounted like this:
mount -o umask=0000,gid=1001,uid=1001 /dev/sdb1 /root/john/downloads
where gid and uid are
Now when I try to access the share with the Windows machine \\192.168.0.2\john I get the error
network path was not found with Wireshark I saw it's the NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME error. What is wrong with this, why isn't it working?
When I choose /home/john as the path it works perfectly.
