- After upgrading to Monterey from Big Sur, my 2019 Intel Macbook Pro won't connect to an SMB share on my FujiXerox RIP (FXServer).
- Nothing else has changed since running Big Sur on the same Macbook Pro. This Macbook is connected via ethernet over a thunderbolt dock which has worked fine for years.
- A 2013 Macbook Pro running Mojave on the same network has no issues. It's connected via an Apple TB 2 Ethernet adapter.
- I usually connect by hitting CMD + K, double-clicking the share (
smb://fxserver/SCAN) and /SCAN would mount with no login etc

As noted above I added a nsmb.conf file to /etc containing the following...
Then restarted but it keeps asking me for login credentials and failing (guest doesn't work either). This is just a scan folder from our FujiXerox RIP that requires no login. This is how the other Macbook Pro connects as well.
As noted in the post above, I also tried adding
signing_required=no to the conf file like this...
And restarted but still no joy.
I then tried adding
port445=no_netbios as noted here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211927
But that wouldn't even attempt to connect so I removed it.
This articles suggests checking the SMB version: https://lemp.io/how-to-check-smb-version-mac-os/
But when I run the command from the article, it doesn't seem to exist...
defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.smb.server SupportedProtocols
2023-02-17 16:05:16.412 defaults[2258:18483]
The domain/default pair of (/Library/Preferences/com.apple.smb.server, SupportedProtocols) does not exist
This post suggested adding

But this didn't work:
This post suggests a ktext is the culprit: Mac mini can't connect to my corporate SMB server. Was working some days ago
But I don't seem to have it installed unless I'm reading this wrong.
kextstat | grep -iv apple
Executing: /usr/bin/kmutil showloaded
No variant specified, falling back to release
Index Refs Address Size Wired Name (Version) UUID <Linked Against>
Have tried flushing the DNS cache using...
sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
smb://fxserver.local/SCAN as well as the IP address instead. No joy.
Also tried shutting down, waiting a minute then restarting.
Because no SMB supported protocols exist, does that mean that SMB is somehow not installed?
This is a clean erase and upgrade to Monterey that's about a week old, do I need to enable SMB somehow?
- Sorry, I'm not knowledgeable about SMB at all. This has worked automatically for years without problems.
- Nothing else with the network, printer, share, router has changed.
- The other Macbook Pro running Mojave has no issues and before the upgrade from Big Sur, this Macbook had no issues either.
- I'd previously hit CMD + K, double-click the share at
smb://fxserver/SCANand the SCAN share would mount - no login etc.
Sorry if I'm missing something basic, any help or suggestions much appreciated.
