    I'm having issues getting my G4 PowerMac to connect to Samba shares on my Ubuntu Server (16.04). My Mac Pro (OSX 10.11) has no issues connecting, I've googled it a bit but haven't managed to find much apart from some posts saying that Samba was not all that reliable in 10.4 and 10.5. Does anyone else connect their PowerPC Mac to samba shares here?

    I'm getting error -6602, I can find the server and it finds one of the shares but cant connect.

    There may be some things you need to disable on your server.

    I know I had to disable digital signing to get our Macs at work to connect to our then SBS 2003 server (Windows) as well as allowing passwords to be clear text.

    You may also try using CIFS to connect instead of SMB. Leopard and before do not use SMB2.

    Failing all that you may wish to look into Dave

    Versions 5, 6 and 7 work on PowerPC Macs.

    Apologies its taken so long to get back to this I had to email myself the text from the log file and outlook online doesn't appear to play nice with G4s in LWK

    All I have in the log file is
    [2017/08/26 20:14:59.101628, 0] ../source3/smbd/service.c:710(make_connection_snum)
    canonicalize_connect_path failed for service Storage2, path /media/ben/Storage2

    I think it may be a security setting in ubuntu (typical), windows pcs seem to have similar issues trying to connect, I just hadn't used one until now.

    Just thought I'd update this, I changed the OS on mt Server to unRaid, it's a really simple to use NAS solution that supports virtual machines and dockers too. The feature that made me go for it was AFP support. I set up a share with both AFP and SMB support. I can now connect windows machines and my Mac Pro with SMB and have the option of AFP for my powerpc Macs. AFP is working really nicely in Tiger with my PowerBook and I'll give Leopard a try as soon as I've had a chance to replace the CPU fan on my PowerMac G4

    unRaid is a really great piece of software I used to use it as my nas

    I'm using FreeNAS. No problems with AFP support on older Macs.
