Changing the SMB Protocol Version

Depending on which Windows (Samba) server you are using, you will need a specific SMB protocol version.

Due to security reasons, Microsoft recommends to disable SMB version 1.0 support on Windows ,so you need to switch to at least version 2.0 to be further able to access systems with disabled SMBV1.

IGEL Linux version 5.13.100 and higher offer several SMB protocol versions.

To change the version setting:

  1. In the IGEL Setup go to System > Registry.
  2. Go to parameter network.smbmount.smb_version.
  3. Select the apporopriate SMB protocol version.
    Possible options:
    • 1.0
    • 2.0
    • 2.1
    • 3.0
  4. Click Save or Apply and send to thin client.

    The windows shares are configurable at IGEL Setup > Network > Network Drives > Windows Drive.
