Ubuntu 9 - cannot access password protected shares
« on: May 25, 2009, 01:01:54 PM »
This is one of those annoyances which seems to be giving lots of Ubuntu users grief! Luckily there's a simple fix for this...

Using console/terminal type in

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/samba/samba.conf
to open the file you need to edit in the nano text editor

once it's open you'll see a whole load of lines of instructions. Look at the section starting with the line [global] and add to the end of it the following lines exactly as shown here:

Code: [Select]
client lanman auth = Yes
client ntlmv2 auth = no

then save your file and reboot the PC.

Your password protected shares should now work as they should do.  8-)

Our thanks to Trab for the fix.
