[solved] Windows 8.1 strange problem with samba shares

Post by roop » Fri Jun 12, 2015 7:43 am

Hi,

I recently bought a new pc with win 8.1 preinstalled.
Previously I used a win 7 machine which worked just fine.

I configured openvpn the same way as before and it
connects just fine. Routing between the two subnets
also work (192.168.0.0 and 192.168.2.0).
I can ping and connect to my http server on the
192.168.2.0 network.

The only thing which does not work is samba.
Windows Explorer simply refuses to connect to my
server (192.168.2.2).

I believe it's some sort of strange win 8.1 "security feature".
Unfortunately I was unable to find anything after searching
for hours...

Any clues?

Thanks,
Ralf / roop

It is probably your W81 Firewall ..

For further help please post your Openvpn configs and logs.

Sorry,

my time is kinda limited at the moment.

Here's my config file:

Code: Select all

dev tun
tls-client

remote [removed] 1194
tun-mtu 1500
mssfix 1400

pull

proto udp
#not needed...
#script-security 2

ca ca.crt
auth-user-pass pw.txt

comp-lzo
reneg-sec 0
keepalive 3 10

# log-append /Data/openvpn.log
Log will follow as soon as I got more time.

Thanks.

Hi,

I wrote a post but it never showed up in this thread.

BUT your post helped a lot! Thank you so much!
In fact it was an firewall issue.

Thanks,
