This is Mike here.
I have smb set up on my truenas server and I can access it on my mac by going to finder-go-connecttoserver-smb://nameofmyserver
now, I can do that ON my LAN and I have it set up so I can either ssh(terminal or command prompt) OR the above(for quick file management). Now, on my mac I can do any of the above on or off my network…as long as I have internet.
For the life of me(I’m not 100% windows fluent but I can get by), I can only get on the server via filezilla or ssh command prompt. I can do those on or off my network as well, so everything is working, however, filezilla is SOOOO slow transferring compared to finder. Is there…a (finder) for windows? I would think that file explorer could do it, but alas, I can’t make it work. I can file explorer locally using \192.168.x.x\ServerShare. Thats about it…I have pretty much access to all platforms…these are mixes of desktops and laptops, thanks for the help!
update: I can access server through file explorer via \servername while on LAN, however, still not outside LAN. and pressing enter. BUT ONLY on network.
Again, my mac, I can use finder to connect in LAN or outside On my mac it works on, off, sideways(lol). Any ideas? I want to access it above outside of my network like I do on my mac.
Anything you need, just ask.
********update, I had a catastrophic harddrive failures(3 drives at same time) and I had to completely start fresh(which was fine as I had a data backup)
That being said, I created a new SMB, however now, I can only access the SMB in my LAN on either Windows or Mac. I have port forwarded to 22 and can access the server via ssh through command prompt and terminal. Now, I want to use either file explorer/finder outside my LAN as I would do with command prompt/terminal. I need some help figuring out what permissions or settings need changing. THANKS!
