So to create an alias to an SMB share on your Mac desktop:
First use Finder -> Go -> Connect to Server…
Enter a location such as: smb://server/share
Then use Finder -> Preferences… -> Show: Connected servers
The SMB mount should now be visible on the desktop. Right-click the share on the desktop and choose ‘Make Alias’. Then take connected servers out of your Finder preferences and rename the desktop alias probably as the name of the share.
So on the server to ban IP 188.8.131.52 use something like this:
ufw default allow incoming
ufw default allow outgoing
ufw deny from 184.108.40.206 to any
This assumes that your server is also protected by AWS security groups. If not, be careful, because it opens up pretty much complete access.
server max protocol = NT1
lanman auth = yes
ntlm auth = yes
I stand here… I’m supposed to say something… I say… everything that has a beginning has an end.
