My SMB server (which runs on a raspberry pi with SAMBA as server software, configuration according to this guide) is usually displayed in the built-in Android file manager (under the heading "Network Neighborhood"). Oddly enough, although several Android applications (AndSMB, Solid Explorer) and my Linux box connect without problems, the native application "Files" produces this error when I connect to a folder (for example, public) in the share : "The operation failed, I do not have access rights to the folder". Before I can select a folder that I want to open, however, it says "Connected correctly", but it fails with the mentioned error after selecting a folder.
I tried to make the relevant actions recordable and more permissible through editing
/etc/samba/smb.conf, but so far without luck. Other devices continue to connect well, even with some more specific configurations. Does anyone know how to make the Andriod and Samba file application work together? What kind of configurations / types of shared resources would the "Files" application expect?
Some potentially relevant portions of
/etc/samba/smb.conf on my server, the editions are of basic records (like the
minimum server protocol) + the linked guide above, and the rest are simply default values, I think:
[global] Minimum server protocol = NT1 ... [public] comment = public storage route = / my / route / valid users = @users force group = users public = yes can you write = yes navigable = yes read only = no create mask = 0660 Directory mask = 0771
