Direct Access Client has issues using samba share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,

    I'm currently investigating an issue with Windows 7 DA enabled clients. The problem is with several unix based samba shares.

    Using the net use command I can see that when the client is on the LAN he tries to talk SMB (445) immediately and then negotatiates NT LM 0.12 (SMB V1)

    If I reproduce that on the DA connection i can seen that:

    • The client tries Netbios over TCP against the IPv4 address of the unix server (which makes sense as Netbios over TCP isn't capable of IPv6 I think)
    • Then the client tries a connection to port 80 on the unix share for 3 times. I guess this is the fallback to webdav.

    I'm trying to wrap my head around this difference. Why does a client on the LAN just talks nicely over 445, but the client on DA thinks its limited somehow...

    Any thoughts?

    This isssue seem similar: but in my case there weren't a massive amount of 6to4 adapters. As a last restort I disabled both 6to4 and teredo using netsh. Our clients use IP-HTTPS anyway.
