Question on SMB with TS-RXL/R5 series
« on: March 07, 2018, 12:17:48 pm »
We have one of these units and it runs firmware 1.66 

I saw there is a couple newer firmware versions which mention security vulnerabilities in SMB. 

But do these firmware updates add SMB 2/3 support or not? 

If they do not, is there a step by step way to safely add SMB 2 access for this model?  I am afraid to cause any damage or issues with the unit by doing unsupported things. 

I have looked around and found at least one person describing a way to enable SMB2 but it wasn't totally clear to me if it would work on this model.  Also I wasn't able to log into SSH to my unit etc.

So since it is not spelled out in those notes, I am guessing the devices are only capable of SMB 1.0 still.  In that case is there any method of enabling support for SMB 2.0 on this device or not?
