Cannot access a shared directory on a Windows 2000 Server from a Windows 10 machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot access a shared directory on a Windows 2000 Server from a Windows 10 machine.  I am however able to access it from my Windows 7 machine.  After reading about this issue I found that it might be because the Windows 10 machine security policy “Network security:Minimum session security for NTLM SSP (including RPC based) Clients“, both “Require NTLMv2 session security” or “Require 128-bit encryption” are checked. 

    These two options are checked per network policy apparently b/c I cannot change them, they are grayed out.

    The older systems like Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008 have No requirements. Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 require 128-bit encryption.  

    I am tasked w/ finding a way around this b/c there are many users that currently use this method to access important files. 

    Why can't I see the share and connect to it?

    Regards,

    Billy
