There is a SAMBA server with a very basic configuration:

   path = /srv/samba
   force group = users
   create mask = 0660
   directory mask = 0771
   browsable =yes
   writable = yes
   guest ok = no

Its very creative hostname is "server". I can access it fine via \\server\share, get asked my credentials and am on my way. If I access via \\\share my credentials are rejected. My client is Windows 10. I double checked the ip address.

Any pointers what is going on?

  • Your using two slashes at the beginning of your UNC path right? \\server\share Dec 16, 2017 at 21:59
  • @Appleoddity yes, using file:// doesn't change anything either
