Windows 10: Interesting Networking problem

    Interesting Networking problem

    I have a Win8.1 PC that I use as a file server, so I regularly connect to it, using "tried and true" accessing techniques that have worked fine for years.

    I set up the drives on that PC using Advanced Sharing so that "everyone" has read access to the entire drive (all folders) and "everyone" also has read/write access to shared folders on each drive. This has worked fine for years, without problems.

    This includes my desktop, which is running Win8.1 and Win10 Pro.

    Then recently, I rejoined the Insider program and installed the Insider build on a separate drive in the desktop. Current build is 15031.

    But, in the Insider build, I can not network to the file server. Every attempt is met with a demand to enter a password!

    So, what is different about the Insider version that forces this?

    UPDATE: I got NO replies here, so I posted this in the Networking section
