Samba shares no longer available after Win10 update (fixed)

Post by TomS » Tue Feb 27, 2018 5:38 pm

I can no longer get to the samba shares on my meteohub (raspberry pi) from Windows 10 after a recent update.

Browsing to the share (\\192.168.5.xx) in windows explorer gives a generic "cannot connect" error, but trying to mount it to a drive letter gives a more specific message:

======
You can't connect to the file share because it's not secure. This share requires the obsolete SMB1 protocol, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack.
Your system requires SMB2 or higher. For more info on resolving this issue, see: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=852747
======

Going to that microsoft URL talks in detail about this.

I did fix it by adding back in support for SMB1 protocol (in the "Turn Windows Features on or off" part of the Add/Remove Programs dialog).

What's the chance of updating the meteohub app to smbv2?

Tom
