Issue mounting a remote network share with core update 138


Having an issue mounting a remote network share using core update 138. I need to mount to an old Ubuntu share that still uses smb protocol 1. Am mounting fine to other machines, but only struggling to mount to the old server.

Command used is

mount //remote ip/remoteshare /mnt/data -o username=john,password=****

Same line used to work on older version (121), but after upgrade it is not working anymore. I have tried using vers=1.0 as a mount option without success.

I know the easy out would be to upgrade the remote machine, but I am sure there must be a way to do this.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Nope. This is disabled at Kernel build due security implications. In IPFire CONFIG_CIFS_ALLOW_INSECURE_LEGACY is not set!

So just use SMB v2/v3 and everybody is happy or just v3?

v1 is that old an insecure I wouldn’t even think about using it anymore :crazy_face:


Thank you for your input. I appreciate it.

Guess it’s time for an upgrade
