Hi, I have a BT Home Hub 6. I have recently set up a local network hard drive and have successfully map my laptop to it using 192.168.1.254 as the address.
I am now trying to connect my iphone to it. I use the same address as above, username and password however it will not let join. Am I meant to use the sever name rather than address? Has anyone else faced this issue?
I have done some research and it does seem possible. However all the research I have seen says the Iphone needs SMB1. From what I can find I think the HH6 already uses SMB1 or am I wrong? If so how do you enable SMB1 on he hub?
Many thanks in advance.
Welcome to the Community!
What application are you using on the phone to connect?
I assume you have connected the device to the USB port of the hub.
The hub uses SMB1 whereas most devices these days use SMB2 or SMB3 as SMB1 is deprecated and considered insecure. You need to enable SMB1 on your iPad if that is possible.
Yes I have plugged the HDD into the usb port on the Home Hub 6. From what I can tell from the research I have done, iphone uses SMB1.
If the Hub uses SMB1 then I must be doing something else wrong. But at least this narrows it done. Thanks
