Windows 10: Access Win10 PC via Android ES File Explorer

    I've been accessing my Win10 network computers using WiFi at home with my Samsung Galaxy S7 running X-Plore. This has worked quite well until the latest Fall Creators Edition (1709) came out last month. Two of my three computers updated right away and I immediately lost access to them. The third was still fine until it updated yesterday and now I have no access. This has to be something with the increased security in the new windows release, but I haven't found out what to tweak yet. I did try turning off the new Windows Defender Firewall on the local network as a test, but it didn't make any difference.

    There has to be a way to get the android stuff to connect. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

    Can't access Win10 "Version 1709" PC via Android ES File Explorer

    I just recently switched from win7 to win10 on this PC (because a windows 7 update destroyed my dual boot BCD, again). ES File Explorer worked fine with win7 pc's. Now it "cannot find server" with win10.

    All the settings (that I can see) are the same. I've tried everything in this thread, except turning off password protected sharing, that's not going to happen.

    This topic needs a bump up because it should be considered new again since the 1709 update.

    So, I dumped ES File Explorer and Got X-Plore, problem solved.
