    Network security: Minimum session security for NTML SSP...


    Hi!

    Id like to get some information about how to, in Windows (8.1):

    Change the Local Security Policy

    1. Open Local Security Policy:
      XP: From the Start menu choose Run. In the resulting dialog, type "secpol.msc" (without quotes) and click OK.
      Vista: From the Start menu, in the Start Search dialog, type "secpol.msc" (without quotes) and press Enter.
      Windows 7: From the Start menu, in the "Search programs and files" dialog, type "secpol.msc" (without quotes) and press Enter.
    2. Click the plus sign (XP) or arrow (Vista and Windows 7) next to Local Policies to expand its contents.
    3. Click to select (you just need to highlight this folder) the folder called Security Options.
    4. On the right hand side of the Local Security Policy, locate and double-click on Network security: LAN Manager authentication level.
    5. In the drop-down list, select "Send LM & NTLM - use NTMLv2 session security if negotiated".

    6. Click OK.
    7. On the right hand side of the Local Security Policy, locate and double-click on: "Network security: Minimum session security for NTML SSP based (including secure RPC) clients".
    8. Uncheck "Require 128-bit encryption".

    9. Click OK.
    10. Close Local Security Policy.
    11. Restart the computer.


    Its necessary to connect to my Server.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi!

    Thanks for the answer, but I wonder how I do it in Windows 8.1 - not having Windows Enterprise or Pro edition?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately there are no Group Policy settings if you are using the core version.
