SMS & Vista network shared folders
SMS & Vista network shared folders –
I'm currently running Windows Vista x64 SP1 on both my home PCs and have the same problem while trying to access shared folders from SMS Media Player.
I have checked at least a dozen of times all program settings, SMS.smb syntax and location, Windows access privileges... everything is perfectly configured and both PCs are able to see each other and access to their respective shared folders... but my PS2 is still getting "ERROR Nr. 5" while trying to initialize network access in SMB-mode.
Hope somebody could help me addressing this issue and find a good solution.
## EDIT ##
Tried also to install a network activity monitor/logger and I can see my computer and PS2 exchanging some packets over TCP/UDP port 4097.
I tried immediately to create a rule for Windows Firewall to let both incoming and outgoing traffic on that port being fully authorized, but nothing changed and still getting the same error.

Same here, I have try to change the authentication parameters with the GPEdit console but it doesn't work.
The only way to access shared folders is to use RADHost Client.
Edit : I have found other parameters :
1. Click Start, then type gpedit.msc into the Start Search field, and press Enter
2. Click the Continue button on the User Account Control prompt. This will launch the Group Policy Object Editor for the Local Computer Policy.
3. In the Group Policy Object Editor, expand:
* Computer Configuration
* Windows Settings
* Security Settings
* Local Policies
* Security Options
4. Open the ‘Network security: LAN Manager authentication level’ policy and change the Security Setting to: Send LM & NTLM responses
5. Click the OK button to save changes, and then close the Group Policy Object Editor.
And if it doesn't work :
1. Click Start, type regedit and press enter.
2. Browse to
3. Right-click a blank area in the right pane, and click New
4. Select DWORD Value
5. Call the new value LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
6. Double-click the new item, and give it a value of 1
7. Restart your computer
thank you for providing those info, which were spread somewhere across the worldwide web.
However, I'm so sorry to say that none of the mentioned tips worked for me: I'm still getting the same "ERROR nr. 5" message each time the network functionality is enabled.
If you have any other tip/suggestion, it would be highly appreciated.
If you need further info to better address this issue, simply ask and I will post the result of my tests, so that all other people having the same problem could find a solution in this thread.
I've reinstall Vista this week end and I've also try.
It doesn't work by me too.
I search for other tips
