Ultra Hub: Access to USB HD

Message 1 of 5 (939 Views)

I've attached an external HD to the USB port on my Ultra Hub and turned on Samba.

I can access it using //192.168.1./Seagate_Expansion_1_521a in my browser, which means I can see what's there and download stuff, but how can I upload?  Do I need to use ftp?  

Or can I access it from Windows File Explorer? If so, how?

With the old Huawei modem, it appeared as a network drive called ATP if I recall....

You can use File Explorer.

 

I've done it successfully on Win10 as per:

https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-connect-to-linux-samba-shares-from-windows-10/

 

Note: If it can't connect to the share, your PC may not be configured as a Samba Client - see my response at:

Hi I am having a similar problem with my Vodafone Ultra Hub. I have connected my USB HDD to the router, turned on Samba and connected to the network drive on my Macbook and it shows up in Finder, allows me to add files and remove files but it only shows up as a 200Mb drive (its actually 1.81Tb) and doesnt show any of the files that are already on it. Any idea why it's doing this? Its all working perfectly, just not letting me access the main drive. Its almost like I'm accessing a small partition on the drive but I havent made any partitions on the drive. Help please!! Smiley Happy

In Windows 10 need to enable "SMB 1.0/CIF File Sharing Support" in "Windows Features", its off by default.

 

Just check the box for it in "Turn Windows features on or off" and restart

 

Now you will be able to see your attached USB drive via SAMBA in the file explorer

Caution: SMB 1.0 has has been identified as insecure as in thread http://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Modems-Wi-Fi/Vodafone-Ultra-Hub-USB-file-hosting-not-working/m-p/...

 

Vodafone really should address this e.g, through firmware update of the UltaHub to be compatible with SMB 3.
