Nautilus and SMB1


My Synology NAS allows control of which version of SMB it uses. When I
tell it not to support SMB1, Nautilus stops working, and cannot mount
shares off the NAS.

I've researched the issue, and while I can find heaps of Samba-related
tips, nothing about Nautilus.

I used the Synology web interface to set the server protocol range to
SMB2/SMB2: Nautilus could not mount shares.

The Synology is using Samba under the hood. I edited its smb.conf
directly and set "protocol=SMB2" and rebooted the Synology to make sure
that all connections were closed. According to Wireshark, Nautilus was
still using SMB1 (header marker byte 0xFF) thereafter.

Edited smb.conf some more, this time setting "client min protocol" to
SMB2 and leaving the server min/max at SMB2/SMB2. Nautilus could not
mount shares ("Oops, something went wrong").

Put the protocol range back to SMB1/SMB2 and Nautlius can mount shares
again (as if the "client min protocol" setting were being ignored).

Basically, it looks as if Nautilus cannot mount an SMB share with
anything other than protocol level SMB1. Which is a bit sad as more and
more stuff is not offering SMB1 in the face of its brokenness.

Can anyone suggest an alternative file manager that (and this is
important) they *know for a fact* supports SMB2 or better?

Regards, K.
