A couple of months ago I bought myself a second Vero4K device since I am so satisfied about the first one I bought and wanted one for my other TV as well.
Since I got it (and I have updated it with every new update since arrival) I still haven’t been able to browse properly on my network with it. I have the same settings both in Kodi/OSMC and for the network (not same IP obviously) as my first Vero4K, as far as I can see.
The issue comes when I browse on my SMB-network and go inside of my “Workgroup” and try to enter my Windows 10 fileserver to reach my shares there. Instead of getting a list of my shares on that machine I get an error message which says in the subject “Error” and the actual message says “Operation not permitted”.
Thing is that I do not have any issues reaching shares on other devices such as a small Seagate NAS for an example. I’m thinking that something is wrong on my fileserver but why doesn’t my first Vero4K, a few Raspberry Pi’s (with OSMC and LibreELEC) and my Windows och Apple laptops have any issues reaching my fileservers shares then for an example?
I’m completely confused here and can’t find what’s causing this, from some points of views I would like to blame my second Vero4K since that’s the one which has the issue so to speak. At the same time it doesn’t feel completely logic either and I work with IT and ain’t a noob. Still I can’t figure this out.
I have tried to reinstall the second Vero4K as well, by the way.
Could there be some new “hidden(?)” settings in Windows 10 that arrived in some update earlier that prevents new devices, who hasn’t already got to know the Win10-fileserver kind of, to reach the machines shares? Since all my “older” devices I listed above don’t have any issues like this with this machine.
So in short: My second Vero4K can see the Win10-fileserver on the SMB-network but once it tries to enter it to list the shares it gets the error Operation not permitted.
Lot’s of thanks in advance to whoever that could help me solve this!
