    Dear Alberto

     

    I'm running a QNAP TS-112 here. This model constantly gets updates. So i can't tell about the NMP-1000P but my TS-112 shows the same problem with smb with samba version 3.6.3 running.

    Today I've found the solution for my case. I've had the problem that the service stopped working after updating the QNAP firmware. Only SAMBA was running on the device, no netatalk (AFP) or NFS service.

     

    In QNAP's admin panel, there is a directory in the navigation pane called "network services". In that directory the last entry is "network service discovery". I'm translating these entries from german, so maybe they are called somewhat different in proper english. However, under "network service discovery" you'll find a tab called "bonjour". Make sure, that the entry for SMB is checked, while the entry for AFP is unchecked. The service names given here are those you will see in the Finder. This solved the problem in my case.

    I'll attach the settings page below.

    So here's what I've got.

     

    I installed ML to an external USB disk to test out before installing it to the internal drive in my Macbook. My Macbook is currently running the latest, fully patched version of Lion and can connect to shares on two different windows 2008 R2 server successfully. I can also connect to the shares on both of the server from a Windows 7 PC and a PC running Lubuntu.

     

    When I reboot my mac into the ML disk, I am completely unable to access the shares on both of the 2008 R2 servers. When I try to connect, I am *immediately* greeted with the "There was a problem connecting to the server 'XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX'." error message. 

     

    I've tried all of the syntaxes I can find in the "connect to server" box with no luck. I've made sure that the time/date is correct between all of the systems. I've made sure every system is up to date and rebooted all of them (both 2008 R2 servers and both Lion & Mountain Lion). I've attempted to connect through clicking on the server in the right hand pane of finder then clicking on "connect as" without any success.

     

    Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Hi Bernie,


    I know this is an old thread, but it really is the only one I can find that is vaguely relevent. I just upgraded a machine to ML from Snow leopard and I am now unable to to access shares for backups from my NAS, a netgear readynas duo NV2. This seems to be an smb issue. Any advice would be most helpful.

     

    Cheers

    Hi Noah,

     

    Are you sure this isn't your issue? Are you sure you're connecting over SMB and not AFP?

    With the SMB problem I coldn't get any of the suggestions in this thread to work for me. I did find a 3rd party app thata solves the problem though:

    There is a trial version available which you can apply to download on their website here:

    Yup deffinitely SMB, the protocol it is using is Windows Archive Bit. Just as a test I disabled SMB sharing and it won't even accept the connection test. On turning back on SMB sharing it works perfectly. Right now my problem is fixed by just rolling back to Snow Leopard using time Machine, but I'd much rather get things running on ML. I had waited to go to ML to preent just such problems. I wonder if this will be fixed in Maveriks.

    Dr. Ripco: This (smb://username:password@192.192.192.192) worked like a charm for me! Thanks.

    Well, not sure what happened but I updated to latest ML 10.8.5..... Prior to this although it never worked with SMB I could still see my MAC on my network.  I was hopeful after reading about the update, Apple would finally fix the nagging bug relative to SMB.  Now, after update- MAC has disappeared from my network. I can share from the MAC to my W7 PC w/out a problem. I have set all the various sharing preferences but it appears SMB is still broken.

    I am using FTP as my workaround for the network connection error "The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported" in OS10.8.5.  This is the only workaround I have found that does not require a third party application (MUComander or Thursby).

     

    Fortunately, my server will accept FTP connections and OS 10.8.5 will make an FTP connection and mount the share on the desktop. To add insult to injury, the FTP connection is blazingly fast, much faster than SMB ever was.  I'm not sure when OSX added FTP to the Finder but it sure is helpful now.

     

    ftp://192.168.1.1/   or    ftp://sharename@192.168.1.1/

     

    ftp://servername/  does not work for me.  I must use IP address.

     

    For full background, I get the "not supported" error on three differentl 10.8.5 clients when attempting to connect to an old server share via SMB, AFP, or CIFS, regardless of syntax used.  All nsmb.conf and smb.conf hacks have been tried with no success.  SMB and AFP work fine for the rest of our OS10.6 network.

    Still frustrated by Lion/Mountain Lion not letting you access your NAS? Try using an alternate file manager. mucommander works just fine in OSX, and it's free.

     

    Yes, it's a separate file manager from Finder, not ideal ... but it certainly beats my having to boot virtual Win to access my NAS.

     

    Try it http://www.mucommander.com/

    Install is quick, then go to smb servers, find your NAS, and it all just works.
