  • Cannot access SMB share

    Since a reasonably recent W10 update (at least I think that's what caused it), I cannot access any of my music over my network from my PC. My mapped drives are disconnected in Explorer and attempts to connect result in "You can't access this shared folder because your organisation's security policy blocks unauthenticated guest access." However, Insecure guest logins IS enabled - I've checked using both gpedit and regedit. The only solution I can find on Google is to enable what is already enabled. Any ideas anyone?

    It all has to do with samba 1 vs newer samba 2. VB only works with samba 1. Win 10 machines seem to only work with samba2. I made the same changes you made on my machine, but my machine is a work machine and still didn't work. The IT guys at work tell me that I'm not able to change this, because the restriction is managed at their level.

    This said, I can now use WinSCP or Filezilla to connect to my VB and upload/download files.

      That's what I was starting to think Gary - thanks. All I really need to be able to do is transfer files back and forth, so I'll look into the WinSCP and Filezilla ideas - cheers.

        Just installed WinSCP. Looks ideal - thanks.
