Not able to open shared folder with FreeNAS

Dear Experts,

I m not able to open SMB share with FreeNAS from Windows 10 machines. I m having a permissions issue with the SMB shares.

I can see the shared folder in the network. Yet I cannot open it. I get Access Denied.

I want the access to be without the need of a password


freenas ~]# ps -ax | grep smbd

92752 - Is 0:00.35 /usr/local/sbin/smbd --daemon --configfile=/usr/local/etc/smb4.conf
92763 - I 0:00.01 /usr/local/sbin/smbd --daemon --configfile=/usr/local/etc/smb4.conf
92764 - S 0:00.01 /usr/local/sbin/smbd --daemon --configfile=/usr/local/etc/smb4.conf 98308 0 S+ 0:00.00 grep smbd

[root@TASfreenas ~]# smbstatus

What version of SMB are you using on FreeNAS? Windows 10 probably not connecting because it is SMB v1
marceloNYCMiddle-Tier AdministratorAuthor Commented:
SMB4 ...
Shaun VermaakTechnical SpecialistCommented:
I doubt it. AFAIK SMB is at v3.1.1

Follow this as a test
Within the latest “Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” the Guest access in SMB2 is disabled by default.

You can change this setting within your group policy settings.

  1. Right click the Windows Icon at the bottom left of the task bar, or select the windows key + r
  2. Within the run box, type “gpedit.msc”
  3. Within the local Group Policy Editor, select “Administrative Templates”
  4. Select “Network”
  5. Select ”Lanman Workstation”
  6. Double click “Enable Insecure guest logons” option
  7. Tick the “Enable” option
  8. Select OK
