Cannot connect to osmc share from windows 10, the user name or password is incorrect System error 1326

Hi all,

as per subject line cannot connect to osmc share from windows 10, the user name or password is incorrect System error 1326

I have enabled SMB 1 in Windows months ago and this has been working up until yesterday, now all I get is incorrect username and password. I can SSH into my Rapsberry PI and have reset the password, rebooted both, also ran apt-get distro-upgrade on the PI and Windows updates (18363:778)

I have looked for answers for a day now and cannot find anything that helps me.

If anyone can assist that would be great! I have plenty of free time :slight_smile:

Well would have been helpful if you sould have provided the logs from OSMC via grab-logs -A, anyhow you can try:

Either from Win10 cmd net use * /del and then net use \\<IP of OSMC>\osmc /user:osmc
Or Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Credential Manager to clear all OSMC records.

Hi fzinken

Thank you for your help

I have run grab-logs Logs available at https://paste.osmc.tv/canuqavezu. I never knew that was a command.
C:\Users\Stuart>net use * /del
There are no entries in the list.

C:\Users\Stuart>net use \192.168.1.7\osmc /user:osmc
System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

C:\Users\Stuart>net use \osmc-lounge
The password or user name is invalid for \osmc-lounge.

Enter the user name for ‘osmc-lounge’: osmc
Enter the password for osmc-lounge:
System error 1326 has occurred.

The user name or password is incorrect.

Maybe try to remove and reinstall Samba.
sudo apt-get remove --purge smb-app-osmc samba
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo rm -r /etc/samba/
sudo apt-get install samba

Any configs I need to save first???

Do you have Internet forwarded for SSH access?

Normally Samba is all autoconfig and will be recreated. Unless you manually changed something.

No forwarding. I have SSH enabled on my router as a virtual server on a different port.

I will give it a go! Nothing changed from default other than smb-local.conf

Hmmmm. I tried to access via ssh on my mobile. I do recognise that external IP. I will be turning that off

Well how can then an external IP (61.245.149.187) access your OMSC…
…saw your openvpn installed maybe that is the reason.
