Yet another Windows can't see the share but Linux can.

  • So Windows cannot see my shares, yet Linux can see the share but will not connect. Get this error Unable To mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server: connection refused
    My Android phone can see the share (via ESfile explorer), asks for user & pass but that fails and it keeps asking.


    • Both smbd and nmbd are running.
    • Windows PC are in WORKGROUP.
    • Firewall is off.


    I've rebooted all my machines but still nothing.


    It's just frustrating that something like this just doesn't work out the box. :(
