Title: Share and map shares in ArcaOS command line
Post by: Andrew Brehm on June 26, 2020, 12:48:07 pm
How can I share folders and map shares in the command line in ArcaOS?

Specifically, what are the equivalents of Windows' net share and net use commands?

Check out smbclient. Try "smbclient --help" and "smbclient --usage".
Hopefully someone else who actually uses it can add more.

Try using the "net use" command:

net use [available drive]  [\\host\share] [password]

Example:

 net use w: \\sentinel\backup password

net use [available drive]  [\\host\share] [password]

Example:

 net use w: \\sentinel\backup password

I did exactly that and I am getting an error 58. That's why I ask.

Apparently error 59 is "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.".

Sorry, Net Use is working on my AOS and thought you might have an issue with syntax.   Error 59 is an unexpected network error which often is the result of a security negotiation error.

If you are trying to connect to a Linux samba share, try adding "ntlm auth = yes" in your smb.conf global section, which allows security negotiation to start with NTLMv1 (and above).  If it's a Windows share, there's an older post on this forum describing the steps to modify Windows security.
