First let me say that I am new to OpenElEC but I am thoroughly impressed. I have a home built box with an I3-2125 intel processor. I first loaded the stable Dharma version but quickly decided to move to the 1.99.2 version. I had a couple of issues to overcome but after searching through the forum I was able to resolve all but one. I am no longer able to view the htpc box through SAMBA from either my Ubuntu or Window laptop. When I first installed 1.99.2 I did see the htpc box on the network and was able to successfully copy a few movies over the installed SSD but since then I have been unable to view the drive/files. I can SSH into the machine but no go for viewing through the network.
I did search through the forum trying to find an answer and I did find and apply this wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Troublesome_SAMBA_Shares
but still I am unable to see the htpc box on the network. Below is a what I currently have in the /storage/.config/samba.conf file. Is there something incorrect or missing? I tried shutting down all computers on the network and reboot starting with the htpc box but to no avail. When I try to view the network from my Ubuntu laptop I get a 'Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server' error message. Does anyone have any suggestions or can point me to a potential solution.
Thanks in advance for your help!
