Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server: Connection timed out - Samba/Linux Filesharing Not working Ubuntu Mint Linux Solution

So you're trying to browse to a properly configured Samba share but you get this error:

Unable to mount location
Failed to retrieve share list from server: Connection timed out

 

If your config is right, it can be due to a protocol miss-match where your client has not enabled SMB3 but by default the other side (server) has enabled it.

You can test this out to see with the smbclient tool

smbclient -L YourIP
protocol negotiation failed: NT_STATUS_INVALID_NETWORK_RESPONSE
 

If you got the above error it is likely a protocol error that can be fixed and solved like this:

Just edit your smb.conf file on the client side

#add this to globals in /etc/samba/smb.conf
client max protocol = smb3
 

After that you should be able to view the share successfully.
