QNAP – SMB1

We’ve got an old NAS, and after the most recent Windows Update … I lost access to it. Now the NAS is really just a backup, so I never really use the NAS. I don’t generally waste my time fixing things I don’t need, but Scott wasn’t able to use the NAS from Fedora 31 either. So I tried to map the drive again and got told the NAS could only use SMB1 but Windows required 2 or 3.

I ran smb2status and, yeah, the max protocol is SMB 1.0. Simply running smb3enable or smb21enable configures Samba for SMB3 or SMB2.1 and restarts the services. We can use the QNAP Samba share from both Windows 10 and Fedora 31 now.
