Hi, I’ve been using osmc for quite some time now. I used to have the ability to add sources from the file manager. Now it seems I do not.
I am connecting from Raspberry pi with osmc to another raspberry pi running raspbian. I previously added a share to osmc via ssh. Now I cannot even see ssh as an option any more. So I tried setting up ftp and even samba (which I very much dislike) and created shares for both in osmc. Nothing works. I am able to connect to and use those ftp / ssh / samba shares from my phone, Mac, Linux boxes, android devices ect., but osmc cannot see them. I even tried reinstalling osmc from scratch a couple times. My network is working properly, I can update and install addons in osmc. About 1 years ago things went on the fritz with osmc connecting to servers. Any ideas as to why this might be happening for me?
I’m sorry the “add sources” button is checked. I can go through the process of adding sources. It simply fails every time I do so. I was more commenting on the fact that I no longer can add an ssh share when selecting from the types (samba, WebDAV, ftp, ftps ect). Several years ago I was able either ssh or sftp, it’s been a while.
Anyway I am looking at the logs and I’m seeing the part where there error is happening. What do you need included ?
I was going to look for any errors in your sources.xml and make sure it was actually loading but it obviously is from that snippet. If you know that source path is correct I would check your .kodi/userdata/passwords.xml and make sure the credentials being sent are correct.
I know relatively little about ftp sources in Kodi but I believe that if your doing sftp you have to install an add-on for it. You would go to add-ons>my add-ons>virtual filesystems>SFTP Support> bring up info and enable it.
NFS server isn’t that hard to setup. Basically you just install nfs-kernel-server and edit your /etc/exports to get the server running.We have tutorials here on how to setup fstab or autofs on the client if you decide that you wish to switch to system mounts instead of Kodi mounts.
