I want to be able to continue the course and be able to swap files between my Win10Pro machine and the Pi.
The old-fashioned solution: copy the files to an USB stick on the Windows machine, then move the stick and files to the Pi.
Yeah that's what i have decided to do. I just spent something like 3 weeks trying to network my windows 10 pc with my Raspberry Pi Desktop machine and have had no success.
I have tried everything under the sun and I mean everything and the Raspberry will just not show up in my Windows 10 networks. I tried typing in the ip address of the raspberry and nothing, unable to find it. I did all my smb.conf edits and in fact used one from these forums that i thought would be the winner and nada. I rebooted both machines and even edited the avahi.conf to not use Ipv6, only ipv4 and nothing. didn't work.
Raspberry pi not showing up in windows and on the raspberry side i see the windows 10 machine but access is always denied. also it shows my windows 10 machine as well as Windows Network. If i click my windows 10 pc from raspberry it says that the location is not mounted. Not one tutorial (and i've read so many i just can't read any more of them) did it mention you have to mount the windows pc on the raspberry side. So i'm just super lost and going to do things the old fashioned way using a jump drive to bring files from my raspberry pi NAS. i don't know what else to do.
I'm overwhelmed and exhausted from constant failure with this. I just spent weeks of my life I can't get back and nothing worked. I also completely turned off the firewall on the windows 10 side to see if it is the firewall stopping the connection and you guessed it, nada. So basically I am at windows 10 can not see the raspberry pi and the raspberry sees windows 10 but it has to be mounted somehow? does that make any sense?
I’ll just get a 1tb drive that I can hot swap between the raspberry pi and my windows 10 pc for file swapping. It seems that if it is going to be beyond difficult to network windows 10 with the raspberry pi then it’s not worth doing. In the past it wasn’t so difficult with smb ver1 and I was tempted to just use that since no one else uses my network and it’s a private network. I’ve tried everything and not just once but several times and after working on this for so long, I’m burnt out. it’s just not physically possible to connect them in a network I guess. I also use Kodi on the raspberry pi and while it would’ve been nice to stream something from my windows 10 pc over my network to the raspberry pi I just don’t want to be frustrated with it anymore so I decided to just give up.
Now I can start my new project of uninstalling all the samba stuff, maybe not having samba it will speed up my raspberry pi a little. It tends to get a little sluggish especially when using chromium but that’s why I have the windows 10 pc to surf the web. I guess networking took a huge step backwards.
