Updated a Windows 7 machine to Windows 10 and can no longer connect to the network share on a dos machine. The MSDOS 6.22 machine is a piece of industrial hardware that uses a mapped network drive connecting via
netuse x: \\smbserver\dxcontrol
The system worked prior to the update and can still connect to another win7 machine that I'm using right now while I figure this out. Both machines have identical sharing information as far as I can tell and other machines on this network (win 7 win10, macos) can see both the win 10 and win7 shares and connect without issue.
Side note is that dos doesn't support authentication so I have to share to the Everyone user and under advanced sharing settings have to select turn off password protected sharing.
The systems can all ping each other without issue.
Connecting to the windows 10 share results in the error message:
Error 55: This resource does not exist on the network
Which is a different error than I see when trying to use a non existent directory on the win7 machine
netuse x: \\win7dxbackup\noexist
Error 67: The specified shared directory cannot be found.
And is also different than providing a non existent host (which takes a while to time out):
Error 53: The computer name specified in the network path cannot be located.
Sorta running out of ideas of things to try... I'd really like to have this work with win10 vs a legacy win7 machine. I'd prefer not to use an additional network device to solve this (like a network drive or linux machine sitting in the corner collecting dust just to share this one directory)
(Edit) I'll also add that I can see both machines using
net view on the dos machine.
Any help is appreciated.
