X:) shared as
//Vader/x with permissions set to
Everyone having full control. Other Windows machines can access share just fine & read, write, etc. Windows 10 box has user
Adams with no password & automatically logs in at boot.
Prior to installing Sierra, had no problems accessing share. Since Sierra (now on High Sierra, hoping it'd fix but didn't), I haven't been able to access at all, always with the following error with text
There was a problem connecting to the server:
I've got a pretty simple Google WiFi setup (with 3 units) providing my home network. All machines are on the wifi network (
192.168.86.0/24). Here's some terminal output from
$ ping vader PING vader.lan (192.168.86.86): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 192.168.86.86: icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=2.208 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.86.86: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=5.940 ms ^C --- vader.lan ping statistics --- 2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 2.208/4.074/5.940/1.866 ms matthew@newt:/Volumes $ smbutil lookup vader Got response from 192.168.86.86 IP address of vader: 192.168.86.86 $ smbutil status 192.168.86.86 Using IP address of 192.168.86.86: 192.168.86.86 Workgroup: WORKGROUP Server: VADER $ smbutil identity -N //vader smbutil: server connection failed: No such file or directory
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't know what else to try. I've searched many docs, forums, StackExchange sites, etc.
