AudioTron With Vista File Server

I was just trying to connect my AudioTron to a Vista machine that has my music collection on it. The network connection didn’t work, because the Audiotron is using an old version of the relevant network protocols. This is just a “note to self” type post to remind me what I needed to change in the security policy of the Vista machine to make it work:

  • LAN Manager authentication level set to Send LM and NTLM responses
  • Do not store LAN Manager hash value on next password change set to Disabled
  • Change the password back and forth if set before, so that the LAN Manager hash value can be updated


Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
