I can’t see my samba disks when I’m connected via OpenVPN and (FFS) I cannot find any option in LuCI where to enable it.
Can someone help please?
Is samba running? ps shows smbd running?
Try to mount them directly? You know the name of your own server?
Samba is OK - I can access my disks when I’m at home. But can’t access them when I’m connected via oVPN.
Hard to help without more info about your setup … or some log output .
If the samba shares are on windows10 and later, check what samba protocol(dialect) is at use?.
5 things to know before troubleshooting SMB performance check the “negotiation” section, so you can pick min/max protocol to ensure you are using compatible ones (server/clients).
Also check the firewall and enable ports : It is old and for SAMBA3, but that stuff for windows10 machine setup should work. Maxmilian's notes on smb.conf and some stuff is still valid even for samba4
Also what type of routing are you using for OpenVPN and what protocol (tcp/udp?). Do you have option
topology 'subnet' also
option client_to_client '1' in your openvpn uci config ?
As for mounting, you can mount any samba directly to your router filesystem or to any lxc container and access via the router (not directly openvpn-client to lan-client).
If you have it mounted directly to Turris and still strugling with access, check if you have correct rights/ownership (from openwrt perspective) as well correct rights/mask (from samba perspective).
