SMB configuration and authentication mode in external storage for next cloud

Hi every body,

i want to use external storage SMB and use different authentication method with username password/saved in session / saved in database.

would you help me.

do you have any wido pr guide in this regards.


From what I’ve understand from the documentation to use this fonction you have to have a Windows Server samba because the feature support on Linux for samba is limited.

Is that your case ?

i am not sure because i am beginner in nextcloud.

If you’re a beginner, then stick with the standard login authentication for smb.
The session authentication is hard to implement and not always compatible with Linux server.

you mean with username/password.
do you have any guide or video to help me.
