I have a File Server (Linux, Mint) running Samba which allows Windows machines on the network to connect as a Guest and read / write files to the shared folder.
I have a Mac book running El Capitan. This is unable to connect to the server and on trying to do so gives the following error
There was a problem connecting to the server "192.168.0.7" Check the server name or IP Address...
I have tried using all of the following connection strings
smb://192.168.0.7 smb://192.168.0.7/share smb://user:email@example.com smb://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/share cifs://192.168.0.7 cifs://192.168.0.7/share cifs://user:email@example.com cifs://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/share
But without any success.
I can successfully connect using a username and password and am able to read/write but I am just unable to connect as a guest.
The windows (xp) machines on the network can connect as a guest and can read/write without any issues.
