    Suggestions on network sharing issue - W10 Enterprise and W10 Home

    I had network sharing working between these systems until a recent update was pushed to W10 Enterprise. Ever since I no longer have access from W10 Enterprise to W10 Home. All other network sharing still works include between W10 Home systems and from Roku/Android to W10 Home. Details below. Hoping for any suggestions on diagnosis or solution.


    Network sharing was working up until recent Windows 10 Update. Ever since, access from Windows 10 Enterprise to Windows 10 Home (Dell) results in prompt for credentials which always fails. When working, no credentials were required when working. Have tried access using computer name ip address with same results.

    All computers are on same LAN/router/subnet

    Windows 10 Home DELL (WORKGROUP name = WORKGROUP)
    - Running services: DNS, Function Discovery Resource Publication, SSDP Discovery, UPnP device host
    - SMBV1 enabled (for Android TV sharing)
    - Advanced Sharing settings:
    --- Private net: Network discovery ON, File & Print sharing ON,Use user accounts and PW
    --- All networks: 128 bit encryption, password protected sharing OFF
    - NOT Visible in File Explorer NETWORK view from any computers
    - Shared discs/files CAN be accessed by computer name AND ip address from all computers/Roku/Android EXCEPTION Windows 10 Enterprise computer.

    Windows 10 Home HTPC (WORKGROUP name = WORKGROUP)
    All services & sharing settings sames as DELL, shares access works with no problem between both computers

    Roku (PLEX & Roku media) & GBOX MX2 (android TV) - share access works OK

    Windows 10 Enterprise (WORKGROUP name = WORKGROUP, set up as "business computer")
    - When accessing shares on DELL & HTPC, am prompted for network credentials then fail (was working prior to latest Windows update)
    - Enabled services: sames as DELL
    - SMBV1 is NOT enabled
    - Advanced sharing: same as DELL
    - Firewall settings: rules set to allow inbound and outbound file sharing on PRIVATE network

    SOLUTION: Manually added windows credentials for W10 Home (Dell) on the W10 Enterprise computer. Access network shares now with no prompt for credentials.
