    • FTP & SMB not working

      Guys - I'm new to openmediavault infact installed the software on my new PC yesterday . I'm not an expert on Linux but the idea of having a Linux based NAS webpage and review is good.

      Let me jump on the problem , I'm having with FTP ( I've similar problem with Samba / CIFS as well ) . I configure the OMV after watching may video online and reading blog. After install , I can ping , SSH and Web access ( LAN not WAN ) the NAS , however the SMB and FTP is not working. I installed a new drive 3TB formatted with ext4 , created users , created folder and mapping it etc . I tried debuging see below : only http and ssh open is showing to be open.


      root@ranbin-nas:~# netstat -a | grep LIS

      tcp 0 0 *:ssh *:* LISTEN

      However the process FTP and SMB is showing to be running

      I stop and restart both the process still the ports are not showing as Listining which is ODD . Infact when I look at hte web GUI it does show that SMB and FTP services are running.

      I did a wireshark capture , I can see that NAS just sent TCP reset for SMB or FTP , which means Port seems to be not open. Also telnet on port 21 and 445 is not working .

      Any help would be appreciated ?

    • We can close the thread , I re-install the OMV and it started working fine. Problem I think was , after the installation was complete previously , you press enter to reboot ( as the reboot takes time .. I pressed the control+Alt+Del to expedite it ). It this screw up the final installation . A fresh install fixed it. ...

    • Thank you for alerting us about waiting for the end of the installation. I was not waiting the reboot and so the FTP and SMB services did not work afterwards.
      Please, excuse the bad english, but I needed to thank you for the help because this was the only post that showed a solution to this problem.
