We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
Does the BT Home Hub 6 support Samba File Sharing between Hosts connected by WiFi?
I am trying to access Storage on another Host on the LAN but a search does not show any available devices. The Router seems to be blocking the protocol (multicast DNS or mDNS) that is used for discovering things like Samba shares.
Do I need to configure something in the Home Hub 6 Firewall or Access Controls?
Thank you for reading. All help or suggestions welcome ...
If it is within your LAN, the hub will have no knowledge of let alone block anything that is passing. Bear in mind SMB1 is disabled by default on W10 machines.
Thank you for your response. Yes, I know that SMB1.0 is disabled by default in Windows 10 but I have enabled both Client and Server on my Windows 10 PCs on the LAN.
This observation is of Raspberry Pi devices on the Wireless LAN which cannot see one another on a search. They are on consecutive addresses on the network so I am at a loss to understand why they cannot see one another.
