Disable password protected sharing for SAMBA (SMB)
« on: September 25, 2015, 01:32:39 PM »
You need to disable this function when browsing via SMB (Samba) on your pc, when you pc asks you for a username/password.

1) Go to your Control Panel
2) Choose "Network and Sharing Center"
3) Now Choose "Change Advanced Sharing Settings"
4) Under the "Home and Work" group De-select the option "password Protected Sharing" and press Save

If you get access to your PC, but still have to input a password for your folders? Please follow the steps in the manual about the folder rights.
Don't forget to smile everyday.
