Recalbox not allowing browsing over the network



  • Hi

    I am loving 4.1 so far. The only problem i have found is it is not allowing me to browse to the recalbox to load roms for example \recalbox in windows does not open the share. I also tried \IP as well.



  • @astlaurent hi
    This is a windows configuration problem. It works fine for everyone



  • I will look around but it did work when I was in 4.0

    What could cause such a problem. I can http and ssh to the pi so I know network wise it is fine

    @astlaurent take a look at Windows network parameters, it might be configured as "public" network and not "private" network.

    It works from another computer so it must be something with my windows install. Sorry not a recalbox problem



  • @astlaurent This problem occurs because Windows (I assume you use Windows 10) uses the actual windows account to login into SMB-Shares. Normally you should then be remapped to a an guest account (because recalbox does not know you windows user), but Windows seems not to accept it and denies the access to the network share or the remapping from samba does not work correctly. I did not investigate further. Anyway, if you remove the "map to guest=bad user" property from smb.cfg at the recalbox, Windows will ask you for login information.
