Managed to connect to freenas server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A few years ago I made a post on this forum concerning the inability of my computer to connect to a Freenas server that I had recently constructed. I got a reply to it the same day but alas we were not able to find a solution to this problem. I ended up re-installing Windows and that somehow fixed it, later on that year i finally found the solution to the problem. (TLDR) You have to go into Turn Windows features on or off and scroll down until you find SMB and turn it on. (DO NOT DO THIS, as Jarsky (someone with a lot more experience in this field than me) pointed out that it can lead to malware infection)

What version FreeNAS are you talking about?


You should not be doing this in Windows, as that feature is SMBv1 which is vunerable to WannaCry, which is why its now disabled by default.

Thanks for the spot, I would hate for something I posted to lead to malware. the solution I posted also no longer works and you have to create a network location in the 'This PC' section of file explorer.
