Many people have trouble accessing SMB shares from Windows 10, whether its the SMB sharing of Coreelec or some other NAS device (for example in my WD MyCloud)
Most articles blame the diaabling of SMB v1 in Windows 10, but actually thats not the reason since Coreelec and most NAS already use v2 or 3 anyway.
The problem is faced when the SMB share doesnt have a password enabled. That is what Windows 10 disabled: accessing SMB shares that are not protected with password.
Obviously obe solution is to put passwords on SMB shares. The other is to enable password-less SMB access in Windows 10 settings.
These are located in 2 places and both have to be changed:
- In Group policy settings, theres a policy to enable something like allowing unprotected anonymous access or something like that
- In RegEdit the equivalent key also needs to be changed, sonething like LanMan…
Google search should help you find the exact names of the 2 settings to change, just i’m not on my PC currently, i’ll post them later if you cant find them.
