Well. In the industrial environment you may find everything ranging from
CPM-86 onwards... old things talk via RS-232 or 422, the LAN equipped are
regarded as "modern". In general all are non-upgradable closed systems.

Sorry, I am not a windows sysadm and I lack of correct terminology; I am not
even sure if it was a 2008 or something else actually.

It cannot understand the domain and authenticate over it, but this is
not a problem as the WfWg doesn't export any folder and nothing connects to it.

I need the 3.11 be able to access a folder exported by something else and,
with stability issues, it's working with windows 7/10 pro and it was working
already before I replaced the windows server with a samba one... but I would
really like not to have a machine-in-the-middle and have the samba serve
those data instead. There are other reasons, but a good one is the presence of
much more powerful debug instruments on samba to diagnose the instability.
