For the last couple of years I’ve been accessing my Vero 4K + using Samba, so that I can stream media stored on my external hard drives which are attached to the Vero. I access the media over the local network from my Windows 10 PC, various Android and Chrome OS devices and also an iPad.
A couple of days ago the Vero and its connected hard drives disappeared from Windows and gave authentication errors on all my other devices. It’s as though it is no longer accepting the log in username and password details. I manually changed the password using SSH and updated it on all devices to make sure I had it correct, but still no luck. About a day before this started happening, I updated the system using sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade from Putty on my PC. I did that because I was trying to fix another issue where streams played using PVR IPTV Simple were stopping a few seconds after starting.
I’ve also tried changing the SMB protocol version to none as I saw suggested elsewhere on these forums, but the problem persists. The Vero is connected by ethernet cable to my PC and over wifi to all other devices.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
