Error updating the password file android samba
For example, C:\USERS\ADMIN would make ADMIN the user id you need to use to log in.
Your password remains the same as what you already use to log onto your system.
Hi There, Instead of using the full e-mail address of your Microsoft account, just use the first five characters.
I'm not sure if that's how it generates the username, but you can check what it exactly is by typing 'whoami' in command prompt, and your username will appear after the slash for the domain. I've used ES File Explorer for years, and gratefully.
I almost gave up on ES File Explorer after figuring out that this instantly solved my problem.
I used to be able to access my Windows 10 machine from my Android tablet via smb:// but this has now stopped working.
This may be pointing that the problem is with Es File Explorer and Windows or samba. When i disable password protection, it works fine (for the files that i have enabled Guest access). But ES File Explorer can't, and neither can the File Manager from Asus.
When there is password protection, even Guest access doesn't work. When i try to edit the server in Es File Explorer, when i click ok, it shows toast message: Error, cannot find server 6. I have applied the fix that enables connection to unsecured networks. So, Microsoft probably did change something, which screwed the samba implementations that ES File Explorer and File Manager uses, but the And SMB solution seems more robust (and they mention cifs too).
A real problem though - especially with newer members to the Forums is that they often don't provide any feedback - so it's hard to tell if the proposed solution works or not.I tried trouble shooting and got the one or more network protocols are missing on this computer error, which it says it fixed in administrator mode, but it didn't change anything.Googling on various fixes mostly seem to result in pages of people not able to connect to the internet at all, but that is not my problem. I encountered this smb:// connection issue as well, both in es file explorer amd on my fire tv using Kodi.As someone who works in a unix environment at work, I think creating an account on the PC for my android device is a perfectly reasonable solution to solve this problem.For what it's worth, I am able to use my hotmail/outlook login account to browse network shares on the windows 10 PC via my Mac OSX laptop running Yosemite. I registered here because I assumed this forum is somehow related to the sevenforums forum I had used in the past. The forum I use most often for my professional work is called stackoverflow.
I encountered the issue immediately after upgrading windows 7 to windows 10 1511 via iso.
