    The horror of SMB continues.

    May I ask what kind of server OS and Hardware ?

    Perhaps you are trying to connect to an insecure/guest SMB share?
    If so, it's disabled by default

    Run this command as admin and reboot:
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" /v "AllowInsecureGuestAuth" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    Its Lenovo Tiny M90q 12100 on Win 11 machine
    and SMB is running on N2+ with Ubuntu Server 22.04
    Yes its insecure SMB will try this and let you know.
