    Pwd asked after mapping on Windows 10 (to access to smb linux share)


    Hi,

    I use SMB 1 to share folder to a school, when I was on Windows 7 the share worked perfectly (when the computer startup the mapping was operating and after that we accessed to all the shared folder directly), but now that I use Windows 10 (first I've to enable SMB 1) it ask login and password to access to shared folder (at least 1 time after the startup).
    I have no idea why I have this problem.

    Thanks you !

    Smb1 is pretty much on the way out.
    Security is the main word of the day. Smb1 remains an option mainly to access older machines.
    Pretty much every system these days will ask for that password ,even when password protect
    is turned off in Networking.
    I may seem an inconvenience but its there to protect the Host machine.

    Of course I understand. But my boss doesn't allow me to change it even if it's a security risk...
    But at another place using windows 10 and windows server it didn't ask for password.
    And I don't understand why on windows 10 it ask for that and not on windows 7

    Its merely security mainly to protect the Host computer from unauthorized users.
    Security has greatly improved since Windows 7, to make it harder to hack into
    your system.

    It is a server problem for the password and username not your computer.
