Two Windows 10 PCs see/connect to SMB shares, one does not.

Help me Obi-Wan you're my only hope :)

I've looked through these and other forums and googled for solutions to no avail.

I presume the problem is PC side since the 2 other PCs connect just fine.
I've looked at the Credentials Manager
Made some changes to registry to allow "guest" -no pwd- logins
Tried enabling SMB1 on the PC and FreeNas

I've probably looked at a couple of other things but I'm at a loss atm.

Is the 3rd PC configured for a public or private network?

What version of Windows on all 3? Are you connecting to the share as a guest or as an authenticated user?

All 3 are Windows 10 Pro
Connecting as authenticated user, the same FreeNas user on all 3.

Also checked to ensure that I'm running the latest SMB on the troublesome PC.

Rebooted both... tried different users, pwds, mapping the share using cmd....etc etc. All the commonly stuff that'd try in this type of case if this was just a PC to PC or Windows server share problem.

What does the Event Viewer say on the 3rd PC, specifically the Security log? Also, are all 3 PCs in the same subnet?

I can ping the FreeNas, I can see it in the windows explorer, I can log in and manage it from the PC, it just seems it won't authenticate the users.

OK, I assume the problem share is Gabriel. In the share config, you have:

Code:
[Gabriel]
hosts allow = test Gabriel


I assume test and Gabriel are the working machines. Try clearing out this field in the sharing configuration:

Let me see if I can share some light on this network's configuration. This is not the full intended FreeNAS implementation.

It's a workgroup called WORKGROUP. No DC, no domain. There was one at one time but it was overkill for my home/workshop network.
FreeNAS, My PC and Connor's PC are all wired, My Laptop is wireless, all behind one submask with router providing IPS and DNS etc.
I've assigned the FreeNAS a static IP via the router

On the FreeNAS:
There are 2 users: Gabriel, test
There are 2 groups, Gabriel and production
There are 2 SMB shares, Gabriel and production
Gabriel and test are both in the production group

On the Windows sideL
There are 3 machines: My PC- user Gabriel
My Laptop -user Gabriel
Connors PC, user Connor.

Network access to FreeNAS as Gabriel works on My Laptop and Connors PC, but not My PC.

Last, my Linux is very rusty after 15 years of non usage, I don't know how to clear Hosts Allow.

hosts allow is in the UI of your share ...

Ah, yes I found it TY.
I went as far as to restart SMB and reboot the troublesome PC just in case but that didn't fix the problem and still can't logon.

Are you entering your login as just Gabriel, or FREENAS\Gabriel?

I'm pretty much convinced this is some sort of Windows permissions problem. Not like this is a new thing with windows and I was seriously considering reinstalling W10 on this PC.

This forum was the last hope to avoid this as there's a quite a few apps on this PC, -including a CAD app that takes over an hour to install and configure- and it does take a few hours to get everything reinstalled.

Are we are that point?
