Issue with Windows shared resources

    Hi,

    I've upgraded from Satori_pre1 to Satori. Since then, it is impossible to see Windows or samba shared resources over Wireless. It is OK when using LAN wired ports.
    I checked several time, upgrading then downgrading. It works under Satori_pre1 and fails under Satori.
    Any idea ?

    Disable the Loopback on the Administration page.

    Thanks a lot! I'll check it this evening. I'm optimistic since googling with "satori+loopback" gives similar answers.
    Just curious : what is this loopback option for, and why does it prevent wireless share of Windows resources ?

    TIA

    I found that disabling loopback didn't work for me, but I just edited my %Windows%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file and hardwired IPs to Machine names and it worked fine. It's not the most elegant way, but it works.

    It works

    Disabling loopack did the trick. Thanks again.
    Still curious about the rationals.
