Restore Windows 10 network browsing with wsdd
« on: July 17, 2020, 04:03:29 PM »
As mentioned elsewhere, once SMB 1 is removed from Windows 10 you lose the ability to browse samba shares.

You can still map them via IP or server name if SME has the correct SMB version, but you can't browse for them.

Someone kindly wrote this: https://github.com/christgau/wsdd/

After a lot of work from Terry, and some clever bits from Jean Philippe, I have bodged together a contrib for testing on SME v10.

Terry will paste a howto shortly and a link to the rpm.

We are probably going to add this to the core in time.

This is going to be EXCLUSIVE to v10.

Yes, we have got it running SME v9 (it is much trickier) but I am NOT going to release it because we need people to test v10.

If we release it on v9 you won't bother testing v10, and probably won't upgrade for ages. So you have been warned!!

Details to follow soon.

John is to modest, there were a few hours went into this for sme10 it was a final tweak from JP that put the shine on it :-)  . smeserver-wsdd-0.1-2.noarch.rpm

All that John said above and more..this becomes an essential tool when you upgrade to the new e-smith-samba-2.6.0-10.el7.sme.noarch.rpm and the windows pc does not have smb1 enabled

This is using the resource from upstream hence the need for the epel repo, I suggest you have a look and browse the home of the script and its writer -  https://github.com/christgau/wsdd/

The current version of the script is ahead of the epel version, you can do a manual update if that is your want.

SME10

update e-smith-samba package

# yum update e-smith-samba --enablerepo=smeupdates-testing

Note - This is default smb config with updated e-smith-samba and does not need changing

# config show smb
smb=service
    DeadTime=10080
    KeepVersions=disabled
    OpLocks=enabled
    OsLevel=35
    RecycleBin=disabled
    RoamingProfiles=no
    ServerName=sme10a5
    ServerRole=WS
    ShadowCount=10
    ShadowDir=/home/e-smith/files/.shadow
    UnixCharSet=UTF8
    UseClientDriver=yes
    Workgroup=sme-server
    status=enabled

This then facilitates sme10 being accessable from a win10 PC with smb1 disabled

At this point adding network drives etc manually using an ip is still available

To restore the ability to see a Server under Network in explorer and browse for shares on that resource, wsdd is needed.

Install WSDD

Add EPEL repo

# yum install http://mirror.canada.pialasse.com/releases/9/smeaddons/x86_64/RPMS/smeserver-extrarepositories-epel-0.1-21.noarch.rpm

# signal-event yum-modify
# config set UnsavedChanges no
or
# signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

# wget https://www.reetspetit.com/smetest/7/noarch/smeserver-wsdd-0.2-1.noarch.rpm
# yum localinstall smeserver-wsdd-0.1-2.noarch.rpm --enablerepo=epel
or
# yum install https://www.reetspetit.com/smetest/7/noarch/smeserver-wsdd-0.2-1.noarch.rpm --enablerepo=epel   

# config show wsdd
wsdd=service
    TCPPorts=3702,5357
    UDPPort=3702
    access=private
    status=disabled

# db configuration setprop wsdd status enabled
# config show wsdd
wsdd=service
    TCPPorts=3702,5357
    UDPPort=3702
    access=private
    status=enabled

# signal-event post-upgrade; signal-event reboot

To update script -  replace /usr/bin/wsdd with wsdd.py rename to wsdd and set perms

I did have some issues with softether as I have that installed..

Download SME10A5 and go your hardest, the more that try the better the feedback

Just modded one of the URLs Terry.

Note to others.

  • We may add some other options to the unit/service file in time
  • This allows Broadcast packets on the Internal Interface via a custom masq template - masq should respect the wsdd TCP/UDP ports but doesn't as yet
  • The updated samba defaults to ports 139 & 445 - no need to change anything

If someone uses Server & Gateway we'd like to hear from them

If you want to help development of this sort of thing then ask for a Rocker.Chat login and come and talk to us directly. We do not bite, and we are not Gods (well, some of them are... !).

I may even let you into the secrets of running it on v9 ;-)

You do not need to be a coding guru to help. Just interested and enthusiastic.

Thanks mate, server/gateway, nothing crop up? did you copy in the updated wsdd.py file from the git source?

Thanks again for testing...

from a win10 powershell default settings on sme10a5, win10 smb1 disabled, interesting that windows negotiates a smb3 connection

Tried updated wsdd.py from github src, copied to /usr/bin, renamed and set permissions, reboot,  python3 service on port 5357 is not running.  Restore original wsdd and reboot and browsing the server works again. Will try again

Copied in updated wsdd.py and restarted, now working with updated wsdd.

so need to import the source code from epel and update it with github
and import your smeserver package in core.
then have e-smith-samba requires it
