samba: fix browsing and clean up smb.conf #849
As pointed out in this thread, browsing in LibreELEC is currently (and seems to have been for some time) broken. The default value for "smb ports" is "445 139", so setting only 445 effectively disables NetBIOS. As Samba by default (as it should) participates in local master browser elections, browsing will stop working if it wins.
os level <- 20 is the default
Yes, it's rather confusing. There were eventually two problem reports, one now has a working system after build #1023 (clean build, no other relevant changes). The other person reporting a problem now seems to have a name resolution issue. Neither is running the local Samba server, but were adamant that restoring the original smb.conf restored working smb://, a solution that doesn't make any sense. I think it's most likely a random and unrelated local network failure that coincided with this smb.conf change, but can't be entirely certain.
