For a while now I have noticed that shares setup via Network Browser to external CIFS shares on my NAS devices either no longer appeared or appeared but refused to display any content.
So what we now have is that the format of the command that E2 images currently put into FSTAB:
no longer works.Code:
//192.168.0.66/media /media/net/NAS cifs user=guest,pass=,_netdev,rw,iocharset=utf8 0 0
As a work around I had been using DNLA Browser or Plex to access my vast media library which was OK but a bit of a pain as it was slow to get going.
Reverting to an older version of E2 that I new once worked did not resolve this problem as I expected. So I was forced to put my UNIX hat on and do some digging to find a solution. Eventually, after a lot of trials & fails I was able to once again to open my shares and thus have direct access to my media again.
Below is the line that works which needs to be in the /etc/fstab file:
Note: Add your own IP address above and also enter a working user name and password that has the access permissions you require. e.g. user:myguest password:blahblahblah.Code:
//192.168.0.66/media /media/net/NAS cifs username="xxxxxxx",password="xxxxxx",_netdev,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
This will need to be set up on the device where you are sharing. So either setup a new account or use an existing one but for this to work the line above needs a username & password to work.
I actually have this working using the built in guest account now. So simply using that if your device supports such should do. In my example the line looks like this:
Hope this helps someone as it does actually mean that Mediaplayer can be used for direct play again!Code:
//192.168.0.66/media /media/net/NAS cifs username="guest",password="",_netdev,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
ok I have the same problem, but I am amateur in this field, I already found (fstab file) but you have to explain to me if I delete everything and replace it with the command line .... (offcouse with my IP, log and pass ) .... or I only include the line ...
fstab file inside has this textually
