Have a workstation trying to connect to a linux share and receiving an error.  Mapping to a Windows share - no issue.  When the Windows 10 machine (Surface Pro 4) maps to a Linux share, receive the following error message:

\\IP is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

A Specified logon session does not exist.  It may already have been terminated.

No problem for 100 other machines to connect to it, just the surface.  I have changed some security sessions to no resolution.  when trying to connect to \\IP address, it does not even show any shares on that server..
