I have two machines

  • Windows 10
  • File and printer sharing : Enable


  • Windows 7
  • File and printer sharing : Enable
  • Share printer
  • connect Shared Drive on the server

Both machines are in the same network and in the same subnet and the same domain. If I try to open the shared folder in Machine(2) to connect to the shared printer in appear in the network. But when I press it the progress-bar and show me there is no user called Machine(2)!

error message while sharing

I access Machine(1) with another PC that has Windows 10 and no problem. I made Machine(2) share the printer and it works but sometimes the printer stops the share unless I remove it and reconnect it.

The question is why?

  • What if you connect Machine 2 with IP address to access the shared folder? If you have SNMP enabled on the shared printers try disabling this feature and test. – Waka Mar 15 '18 at 7:06
  • I try to connect it with IP nothing appear SNMP already disabled – Malik Ismaeel Mar 15 '18 at 7:16
  • Now Machine(2) not appear in the share at all !!! – Malik Ismaeel Mar 15 '18 at 10:38

Yes it solved it that was the Windows update v.1709 it install new feature called SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support has three options one of them was disabled I check it as the follwing:
1-click start button search for feature
2-search for SMB 1.0/CIFS
3-you will find it contain 3 option with checkbox make sure the three is enabled
enter image description here
and everything will go fine , this not the only cause there more for more information
