Windows 7: Unable to connect to Linux from my Windows 7 Home and Premium

Unable to connect to Linux from my Windows 7 Home and Premium

I am using Windows 7 Home and Premium and I am unable to connect to Linux machine. I am getting the pop up for providing the username and password to connect to Linux Machine but it rejects the same. I had the same issue with Windows 7 Professional and I resolved it through chaging the policy as below.

Control panel - administrative tools-Local Security policy-local policies- Security options- network security: "LAN Manager authentication level" Changed to "Send LM & NTLM responses"

I came to know that there is no "Local Security policy " on Windows 7 Home and Premium version. Please help me to solve this issue. Thanks in advance.

Azeeb, how are you trying to connect to your Linux machine? Personally, I am using ssh. A free version is included with the Cygwin distribution. Using this tool, I don't have to worry about the local security policy. Which software do you use to connect?

Try following this thread on tom's hardware. Somewhere in the middle there is a post by "komickaze" specifically regarding to Home Premium. Maybe this will work for you.

I have solved my issue. Just added one DWORD in registry.

HKLM-System-CurrentControlSet-Control-Lsa
Add new DWORD
LmCompatibilityLevel ” and set value “2”


Thanks unifex.
