SMB nor STFP working

Post by se3mvp » 13 Oct 2017, 04:19

Hey guys, im back to square one. I have tried everything and yet im still stuck in the mud. After putting all of my permissions correct on my iMac running high sierra, and sharing the folders I need on that side, I configured and added those folders via smb on mrmc. for a couple of days it worked, and yes i did turn on libdsm for smb servers, I did input user name and password when adding the share. but now, when i go to watch my movies, the lock preferences screen continuously pops up when i click on any of the folders im sharing from my iMac.

I put in the username and password of my iMac, and yet that screen just keeps looping, never accepting the credentials it seems. as of right now, i have everything shared thru zero config. but now even when i go back to look at the folders there, the lock preferences screen pops up and juts loops, no matter how many times i put in the credentials. then, i thought maybe i might try and instead just share the folders thru windows smb. but alas, when i try and go in and add the folders that way, AGAIN, the lock preferences screen pops up, and no matter how many times i put in the username and password, it just keeps looping and won't take them.

what am i doing wrong? this is why I wish high sierra didn't break ftp, although it isn't as fast or consistent as smb, at least it is easy to configure. if any of you guys can help me i would greatly appreciate it. i would like my files shared either sftp (which i do have remote login checked on my iMac) or smb....

libdsm should not have any issues with it ...

have you tried adding your shares using your iMac IP address rather than zeroconfig?

maybe, just maybe debuglog has some information ...

To quote somewhere else :)

There are a few things to check.

1. SMB is enabled on your Mac (more info here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204445).
2. At least one user is selected under 'Windows File Sharing' (as shown under 'Advanced Options' in the link above).
3. Selected username and password are being entered in MrMC.

Note: iCloud username/password cannot be used. If you're using an iCloud ID to log in to your Mac, you will need to set up a new 'Sharing Only' user as described here: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH18695

Hey Davilla, everything you asked is done as far as smb activated and user selected, BUT, one thing sticks out: INFUSE. what is infuse? I don't have that? Normally what I do is go to videos>files>add videos>windows smb> and enter the info as far as mac ip address, and folders i want to share, which are shared in my sharing folder. and I don't use an iCloud login for the mac just a regular user password.
