Today I get this error when I try to connect to any of these shares from ANY of my Android devices: Login fails.
This may be caused by:- WLAN is off- SMB Server is out of network scope- The IP is invalid- Blocked by the firewall- SMB service is off.
I have several shares defined on my Windows 7 desktop which are accessible from all other Windows 7 machines on my network.
Until recently those shares were all accessible from my Android devices using ES File Explorer (Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Galaxy S4).
This works on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 I have a laptop with non updated Windows 10 - sharing is no problem with passwords My computer updated to latest Windows 10 version is showing in ES File Explorer. Turned off pasword-protectd sharing This temporarily alllowed access to public folders but not access other folders that are displayed!!
The only files it found were avi files, which seems to be due to the fact that the Fritz box doesn't support iso files.
-a This option is used to add a user into the database.
This com- mand needs a user name specified with the -u switch.
Up to now I have been connecting to these same shares without any problems, using the IP address and my login credentials.
I even tried creating a brand new share, will full access permissions granted for my user id.
