I’d first like to thank all the people of this community who already helped me a LOT in understanding how everything works on osmc and all.
Despite looking for already existing topics on this, I need some help on configuring smb for osmc.
I have a windows 10 laptop and OSMC on a Raspi 2 and I’m struggling to link my PC’s hardrive to the mediathec in OSMC via smb.
I was able to install smc client using
apt-get install samba and I can now access the files that are on the Rpi’s hard drives from my computer without typing username and password.
I used this coding that I put at the end of the smb.conf file :
[Raspberry] comment = Video sur Raspberry Pi path = /media/Video browseable = yes public = yes writeable = yes printable = no
First question : Is it ok in terms of security and stuff ? Or do you recommend another way around?
That is my first question, but the real issue I’m facing is that I can’t link the pc’s hard drive to osmc.
I go to the “add files” menu, select smb, then it asks me for a username and a password, but I don’t know what to write in these cases.
I’ve tried many differents things like “osmc ; osmc” or “WORKGROUP ; [Password of my WORKGROUP]” or stuff like that but I can’t seem to understand what should be written there.
I’m quite sure it’s a dumb question as no one asked this before but I would really appreciate a bit of help here
