Upgraded a Win8.1 machine to Win10 Pro x86 1903 yesterday. When I open Windows Explorer on my local LAN and enter

\\nasname

The Windows Explorer window opens displaying the shared folders. When I attempt to enter /homes a login screen appears where I enter my administrator credentials. This fails to open /homes. However, I can log in with user credentials and access user home.

The odd thing is that I have a Win10 x64 1903 (not Pro) laptop on this network, that has working credentials that access /homes

I've no clue what is going on here. How can I access /homes?

Thanks!

Replying to myself... I created a "generic" credential which seems to have solved the log in issue. Weird, as this was unnecessary on my laptop.

yes, yes Win credentials can solve all the troubles with connection to Syno by Network connection from Explorer

And all the work before I realized Win 10 had put me in a temp profile... Good grief Charlie Brown.

In a word, Drive. Synology Drive Server package is the thing you are looking for.
