OS: Windows 7 64bit Pro System: Thinkpad x201t
I have a big problem trying to access network shares located on other windows pcs (xp,vista) and NAS System (readynas nv+) from my win7 pro 64 thinkpad. The Shares are visible from all other PCs in my network (xp,vista,macos)
I can ping the NAS for example and I can see it in the Network overview. I can also see other Services available from the NAS, but no Share is visible there, forcing me to use http to download files.
I have tried several sollutions for similar problems allready, but none did help so far. Even Manually connecting to a network Share using its IP is not working.
Here is the most recent sollution I did follow to the letter, which seems to be the most detailed I have read so far:
Browse to "Local Policies" -> "Security Options". Now look for the entry "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level" and open it. Click on the dropdown menu and select "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated". Apply the settings.
In the Advanced sharing settings page of Network and sharing center, you need to have it set as Work/Home profile. Try
-Enable network discovery -Turn on file and print sharing -Turn off password protected sharing -Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers
The other settings such as encryption I have set as use 128 bit encryption.
Please check related policies.
- Enter “gpedit.msc” in the Start Search box.
- Open “Computer Configuration”/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Settings.
- In the right pane, enable the following policies:
Network access: Allow anonymous SID/name translation Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users
Also please disable the following policies.
Network access: Restrict anonymous access to Named Pipes and Shares Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts and shares
I have updated all drivers very recently and since the complicated instructions did not help so far I think I might me missing something very basic...
If some special information is needed that I have not mentioned here please post a comment.
