      I have 4 computers at home.  A XP desktop machine; a Vista laptop machine, a W10 Desktop and a W10 laptop.

      For whatever the reason, when attempting to connect with the W10 desktop from the Vista machine I get the error that I don’t have the authority – all machines in the network are set up for sharing WITHOUT any password protection.

      The W10 laptop and the W10 desktop have the same network settings.  I can access the laptop from the Vista machine but not the desktop??????????

      You probably need to turn SMB1 in the Win10 machines b/c it is turned off by default.
      There is a good description on how to turn SMB1 on in Win10 in this thread and also in this thread.

      Older versions of Windows need SMB1 for networking in spite of the fact that it can be a security risk.

      Followed the steps in the first solution in the link.  That permitted the Vista machine to ‘see’ the W10 Desktop machine, however when I went to access the W10 Desktop from the Vista machine – I got the response that I was not authorized and to click on ‘diagnose’, which I did and was informed that there ‘no issues’.  The ‘Microsoft Error’ is Access Denied.

      Checking the W10 machine it is still set up for non-password protected sharing.

      I have 2 W10 machines – one is a desk top and the other is a lap top.

      The Vista machine can share in both directions with the W10 Lap Top.

      When attempting to share with the W10 DESK TOP I get a ‘Access Denied’ error – with that being the case, however, I can print from the Vista machine on the Printer that is connected to the W10 Desk Top.  The W10 Desk Top can write and access data on the Vista machine.

      Flummoxed and Perplexed.
