    Finally SAMBA problems fixed for W10 plus access to Non Windows


    Hi there
    finally Windows connectivity working FROM Samba plus access to all Non windows devices (Smart TV / Amazon TV stick with Kodi installed for NAS access) phones etc.

    What a dog !!!! but Windows networking --quote Shakespeare or something "T'was ever thus" !!!!

    Solution (after latest W10 update)

    Enable ALL the SMB V1 items not just the top 3, AND enable the SMB direct - both in Turn Windows on and off

    In Samba.config (smb.conf) remove all Max protocol stuff

    Now it works

    Finally SAMBA problems fixed for W10 plus access to Non Windows-snapshot4.png

    Now off to pub to watch UK football !!! and some booze here : if anybody is visiting - always plenty of tourists at weekends. !!

    The English Pub Popular pub in Reykjavik, Iceland

    Cheers

    It only counts as an English pub if beer is sold in measures of 568 ml (Pint) not the 500 ml short measures in rest of Europe ;-).

    Thanks for this - been trying to get this worked out for a while.

    BTW - I did not need to enable SMB Direct on Win10 1709.
