It does not work standalone!

Do NOT install if you do not use Total Commander!

IMPORTANT: If you cannot connect to your server with version 3, then your server probably doesn't support the SMB2 protocol.
Solution: Please open the connection settings by long tap on the connection name. Then disable SMB2. This will use the old SMB1 protocol. Normally the plugin should detect automatically when a server doesn't support SMB2, but some NAS devices seem to react differently.

App ChangeLog

  • 3.10: Bugfixes for some routers, dialogs not translated
  • 3.09: Master password option was lost if SMB2 option was set incorrectly

  • 3.04: Copy files between different connections, also with SMB2

  1. Michail Bak-avatar

    Difficulty to connect with some samba folders.

  2. Benni p-avatar

    Works fine for me with Miui 11

  3. Nenad Staletic-avatar

    Worked like a charm, but now it is usless. Server properties dialog dissapired for a some time! There is option in menu, but after tap nothing happenes. I can connect to previusly created servers, I can create new server, but properties dialog just can not be opened. IP address of a server can not be write down. Fix it please!

  4. Angry Ranchu-avatar

    Total Commander as a whole has really changed my Android life. It works flawlessly with my SMB and NFC shares. The plug-ins, especially this one, are well made and easy to navigate. Good stuff right here.

  5. James Muirhead-avatar

    I can't edit servers since moving to Android 9. Can creat them, but when clicking properties, no menu opens. Means you can't type in a username & password. I love Total Commander and this plugin, but have had to switch to CX File Explorer for now!

  6. Ichigo Murasaki-avatar

    Worked nice on Nougat. On Android Pie on Honor 8x, after few seconds of connection, gives error and have to reconnect to copy some more files. Settings are correct and fiddling with them don't help at all. Please fix this problem.

  7. John Karlsson-avatar

    The only decent samba client I could find. Another review says it does not work on Android Pie, but it does for me. Feedback: (if possible) it would be awesome if the plug-in optionally also mounted samba shares at a custom file system path to be accessed from other apps when TC is running in background. It is not really the job of a plug-in, I know, but as mentioned I can not find another implementation that works well (with samba v2).

  8. roughnecks-avatar

    Fixed, thanks dev! ORIGINAL REVIEW: Can't edit servers nor add new ones. Properties doesn't open up and I can't do anything beside adding a share name.

  9. Michelle Clark-avatar

    Allows me to easily connect to my desktop computers, which what I wanted it to do.

  10. Bruce Robertson-avatar

    Bruce Robertson


    It simply works. I am not a computer professional so It took me a bit of trial and error to learn how to properly set up a windows share and connect to it with proper user name and password. Once I got it I put a shortcut on my phone! Now its a one button push to browse my computer hard drive. Well done C.G. There are support forums for Total Commander (and his plug ins) if your having issues.

  11. Pavol Gombos-avatar

    Not working on miui 11. Just the server name can be added and then nothing. Regarding other comments, it's a Global issue. On older versions of Android, editing the server is also not possible.

  12. Aleksei Kartuzov-avatar

    Not compatible with Andrioid on Redmi devices (because Xiaomi modified original android on their devices). On original Android 5, 8, 9 works fine - tested on Samsung and Nokia devices.

    My smb server is on my local network. I connect to it via a VPN tunnel. The app refuses to use my data connection and insists I turn on WLAN. SMB3 support would is also amiss.

  14. Rytis Bertulis-avatar

    Can I donate or encourage developing this totalcmd for newer versions of android? I really really miss this plugin, that's the only decent file transfer client over ssh. And it does not work on newer versions of android :(

  15. Price Hale-avatar

    Thank you! This plugin makes it simple to access LAN PC shares from mobile phone. Browse LAN shares. File copy over WiFi between phone and PCs. File transfers are at WiFi network speed. My Wireless AC 5GHz network . This app uses SMB 2 protocol which is much more secure than apps using SMB 1. I have tried many apps to allow phone to connect to LAN PCs using SMB 2 or 3/ Previous apps had major limitations. This app allows my phone to connect to network devices as easily as I can connect two computers.

  16. Endy Irwanto6-avatar

    If the Plugin does not work on the latest version of Android (9/10?) Then it must be set to Accept Permissions (Allowed 5x Permissions) in Manage Apps. (Malang-Indonesia 14Apr20 Redmi Note8).

  17. Rukki Po2-avatar

    Super nice manager but smb speed less then "x-plore" file manager for example :(

    latest version no longer works with windows 10, i'm not sure what changed, but it wasn't on my end. i had a pretty basic local user setup that didn't have any issues until this latest update.

    Does not work. Attempts to connect to a Linux samba server fail and the server shows malformed SMB2 packets in its error log. Looks like a bug in the client code.

    This works perfectly for reading and cutting. However, for writing or pasting, it does not appear at all. All of the bookmarks that use the LAN are shown for cutting but disappear for pasting. Is there something I'm missing?

  53. Filip Sovilj-avatar

    It's no longer working on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T. Like someone mentioned in comments before, it is most likely a problem on the MIUI 11 UI side. I don't know if there is some workaround or maybe a setting to change to make it work again... please help and make it compatible again.

    Feature requesr: network scan Other File Managers can scan the network for existing servers/shares.

  70. A Google user-avatar

    Could be very good except it always tries to reopen the last LAN connections. If the latter is unavailable you just have an endless "Getting Directory" messagebox + error and it starts again: you can no longer access your other connections.

  71. A Google user-avatar

    It simply does not work. After several seconds or so, the "searching" box goes away, but I see no files from the share that I want to access. Gives a stupid error message with an IPv6 address, that's all. No configurable option to turn off this IPv6 stuff. I hope you will repair that soon!

  72. Skip In Perth-avatar

    Found problem on AOS 5.0.1 - Moving or copy files to windows SMB destination does nor set archive file attribute. This behaviour is inconsistent with all other Windows software which does set the archive attribute. This causes incremental backups to not detect file changes. The file archive attribute is used by backup software to detect file changes

  73. Michał K-avatar

    I liked to use that plugin but it has huge battery drain on my P2 with LineageOS 16 and Windows 10. I thought it's only false positive in battery options but it looks like it's not. Tested it 4 times on 2x ~1,5 GB mkv transfers. Now I'm sad.

    Doesn't work unless you enable WiFi or connect with cable. I have a VPN I connect with over mobile data, so obviously that's a problem. It even works if I enable WiFi, connect, then disable WiFi. Stupid and artificial limitation

  75. zmodem-avatar

    has a bug, when connecting to host with network names like This-is-host, the plugin will connect to LAN///this/ messing around with your router for your computers IP is to much hassle, router apps are made for simpletons

  76. András Fuchs-avatar

    This plugin finally can access my Windows 10 SAMBA shared folders, and I can play videos from there. I would love to see Total Commander on Android TV as well ;)

  77. John Crisp-avatar

    I can browse my SMB v1 server but cannot see how to copy from phone to server. If I 'copy to' I cannot see the server connection. Frustrating.

    1) Files doesn't move. They copies instead. 2) Can't copy files from smb to sdcard with exFat format supported by Radon kernel. Please investigate if possible.

  96. Joe Roberts-avatar

    Great plugin

  97. Pablo Gablo-avatar

    It'd be nice to have an option to leave the password field empty. Then, attempting to access a LAN share would prompt for password. Once entered it would be stored throughout TC session. That's the way it worked in the previous version.

  98. Ken Burgess-avatar

    Usually works well! There have been a few times when LAN plugin did not connect. A simple reset of the router and smart phone has always resolved the problem.
