Windows 10 error message "Connection refused"

There are two things you can try if connecting to a Windows 10 machine that gives this error.

Try connecting with the switch first OFF then ON because occasionally Windows 10 requires FileBrowser to use the NetBIOS protocol.


Windows firewall may be blocking the network, see our firewall guide here.


I have a different version of Windows
