    Good news Samba shares TO Windows working again


    Hi there.

    After the latest set of Windows updates my SAMBA TO WINDOWS is working again -- note SAMBA TO WINDOWS --there never was any problem with WINDOWS TO SAMBA. I haven't changed / updated server for months now --stable and it doesn't change very often -- using CENTOS 7 which is a Red Hat supported Clone of RHEL used by commercial servers world wide - including by Microsoft in their thousands.

    I need it this way round (SAMBA TO WINDOWS) as I run automated backups from my server to the Windows clients and therefore need to access Windows HDD's.

    Media streaming / file sharing / Internet gateway etc FROM WINDOWS works fine -- Windows accesses SAMBA serve so I need connection both ways round.

    Seems Networking on Windows changes more times than I think the expression is "people have had Hot Dinners".

    Cheers

    I am sure there was a permissions bug somewhere. I actually got share working from android to windows on C drive but it took a lot of messing around. Having said that I still cannot access certain system folders but can access the main user folders rather than just public folders now. This update has not changed anything from my perspective though.
