Description Mattia 2016-10-04 05:41:48 UTC
When I try to enter in Network -> Samba shares by the left panel in Dolphin I get "Unable to find any workgroups in your local network. This might be caused by an enabled firewall.".
However this used to work and I didn't changed anything in my firewall. I can also browse samba shares by pointing directly to IP address of a server (for example if I type in the bar smb:// it opens my server) so it's not a firewall problem, I think.

Dolphin 16.08.1
KDE Frameworks 5.26.0
Qt 5.6.1 (compilato con 5.6.1)
Fedora 24 rpms

Reproducible: Always

Same here on openSUSE 42.1 with KDE Plasma 5.8.4

"Unable to find any workgroups in your local network. This might be caused by an enabled firewall."

Firewall is disabled.

Direct URL entry works.

At least the browsing works, accessing the folder does not work. I use a user from the configured group "users" but the user and password are not excepted. From the machine where I did the share and from another machine. But this is probably a separate issue.

Moving to kio-extras where smb:// lives.

Comment 8 Martin Kostolný 2017-10-10 09:03:43 UTC
I suspect the last duplicate is about upgrading to samba 4.7.0. I have noticed the issue ("File exists") since upgrading samba from 4.6.7. Commented an already resolved bug in samba bugzilla (related to version 4.7.0):

Please see the comment, it also says that smbclient is able to browse the share. 

But samba devs say they just changed error message. Anyway upgrade of samba is causing this problem in KIO. I think now that it is possible to use libsmbclient the way it succeeds to connect to the SMB share.
Comment 9 Nate Graham 2017-10-20 17:23:44 UTC
So is this resolved in samba 4.7.0, or is this a duplicate of https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=385708/ Or none of the above? :)

Comment 11 Martin Kostolný 2017-11-16 21:26:47 UTC
My comment was actually about inability to connect to some shares (even when using IP address) after upgrading to samba 4.7.0. That issue got fixed probably in KDE Apps 17.08.3, and probably by You, Nate, thanks!

So I guess this ticket is about something else and I'm unable to replicate this particular issue. I should have made my comment here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=385708/

Excellent, so glad to hear it! I can't reproduce it, either.
