Finding the Id on Your Network
« on: January 04, 2018, 06:04:12 pm »

Normally, you can use Explorer > Network to browse to the Id and open InternalStorage > Media, but a recent change to Windows 10 browsing has caused problems finding machines with Samba running.

User Smilin_Jim found a solution to a problem I had seen.  The Id wasn't showing up as a computer in Explorer > Network.

It looks like a Win10 update changed the Samba requirements.  Smilin_Jim post instructions for making it work:

Thank you, Smilin_Jim.

Here's an edited version of his instructions:

1.  Control Panel>Programs and Features

2.  "Turn Windows Features On and Off" on the left pane.

3.  In the pop-up box scroll down to and expand the "SMB1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support" topic.

4.  "SMB 1.0/CIFS Client" needs to be checked.

5.  Reboot

Split Windows 10 Browser Problems and Samba

We're still thinking about how to handle the Win10 change.  The Id may not show up as a Computer in Explorer > Network.  You can still connect to it by entering the IP address in Explorer.  For example:

\\192.168.0.15

You should see
InternalStorage
and
ExternalStorage

The media files can be transferred to the Media directory.

Personally, I find this utility really useful for locating devices on my network:

Extra handy because it gives clear advice of the MAC address.
