Connecting to Time Capsule from Windows 7 #
When connecting to a Time Capsule network share from Windows 7, you are prompted for a username and password. The username is "admin" and the password is (by default) whatever password you assigned your Time Capsule during setup. However, you will not be able to login without tweaking some security settings (just like this tip for Vista from 2007):
Start > Search box > secpol.msc > Local Policies > Security Options > "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" > set to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated".
You may also need to uncheck both boxes under "Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC) clients".
