Hi have a share on a Linux box (Fedora 31):  "\\\Scanned"


My HP printer can scan to this share and so I can confirm that I know it is working (no authentication is required).


From my Windows machine I can ping the Linux box ( However I cannot browse to or map to the share. When I run the troubleshooter I get told "file and print sharing resource ( is online but isn't responding to connection attempts".


I have installed "SMB 1.0/CIFS Client" and enabled "Insecure Logons" in the group policy.


I am at a losss as what else to try.

SMB v1 is gone burger for Windows! I didn't think you could even install the client on 1709 either?


Just set your Linux server to use v2 or above and all will be good.


Edit: ....just checked, in my smb.conf i have

min protocol = SMB2
set under the [global] tag.

SMBv1 was disabled in samba in late 2019 (forget the verison #) so if you've done any updates on your linux box then it is not gonna work there either.
Browsing to shares is also disabled in SMBv2 and up

When I added "min protocol = SMB2" my "HP Color LaserJet MFP M477fdw" would no longer scan to my samba share (even after I updated the firmware). I can scan to e-mail so that is not too much of an issue.


On the windows side however nothing changed. I removed SMB1 and confirmed that SMB2 was working using a powershell script.
