Not able to move files on network share

Hello,
I’m using network share between my Windows 10 and Manjaro KDE (laptop), so I move some big files over the network but I’m getting this error and it says retry but it’s transferring at a really low rate, this didn’t happen before.
Any fix for this? Error

SMB1 disabled -- no workgroup available

Sorry about that few days ago i found out the old forum hass changed so didn’t get much time to fill the details of my laptop, i would filll them up. :stuck_out_tongue:
Hope everything you needed is provided above.

3 things from your output:

  1. iwlwifi had issues on 5.7. Try the 5.8 kernel
  2. rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384): set the limit to 64K (the maximum)
  3. SMB1 disabled -- no workgroup available: set the workgroup on Linux the same as on Windows…

On top of that, it’s always good to check the following things when you have Windows - Linux interoperability issues:

  1. Is your username and password the same on Windows and Linux?
  2. Are the workgroup names the same on both Windows and Linux?
  3. Is the guest account enabled on Windows?
  4. Are both machines available on the same subnet? (I.E. can they ping one another?)

:innocent:

I’m not able to setup a workgroup can you help me out with it?
sorry but some of the setups are kind of confusing to me which i searched for :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:

PS: other issues are fixed but sometimes it gives access denied just like before maybe I
haven’t samba properly?

Follow this and tell me where you get stuck:

https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Using_Samba_in_your_File_Manager

As samba is both a client and a server, only install the client options as you want to connect to an existing samba share on Windows, not share files on Manjaro to Windows. (That’s where most of the confusion for most people comes from)

:innocent:

After setting up a user for samba,i got this

i used this cli

$smbclient --list=* --no-pass --debuglevel=2

added interface wlp2s0 ip=192.168.0.106 bcast=192.168.0.255 netmask=255.255.255.0

do_connect: Connection to * failed (Error NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER)

update:
After the file got fully transferred I got access denied error(samba)
(Transfer rate is about 4-10MB/s).

removed the screenshot :stuck_out_tongue:

  1. Please read this:

    [HowTo] post screenshots

    You’ve violated rule #1 :sob:

  2. Is your username and password the same on Windows and Linux?

  3. Which workgroup name are you using on Windows?

  4. Is the guest account enabled on Windows?

  5. Are both machines available on the same subnet?

Please provide some more tangible information…

Sorry about that again, I make sure to take some time and read some of the new rules of Manjaro forum :smiley:

So I checked all the above-given suggestions and I found out that the guest permissions were not properly set (my bad), and the windows login and Linux are same(more like without passwords), last but not least both machines are on the same subnet :smiley: , the above error was gone when I restarted my laptop again and I was able to read/write without any issues.

thank you for all the help most appreciated, your suggestions helped me out so much this might help me for any future error which I can solve it for now. :grin:

sorry for all the trouble

No need apologize to me unless:

  • I’m screaming at the top of my lungs
  • jumping up and down
  • holding my foot
  • you just having dropped a bowling ball on my foot!

:grin:

P.S. :heart: for the solution: I’ve edited all of the information spread over 2 answer into one and deleted any of the irrelevant questions I asked! :+1: :wink:
