I understand, but if I was in your shoes, I would be contacting whomever 
does have control of the Wheezy machine and pointing out that to 
continue using Wheezy is very insecure mainly because it is EOL and 
contains packages that are subject to unresolved CVE's

You better get used to either mapping shares or navigating to them via 
UNC, this is because you need SMBv1 for network browsing and this is 
going away. Windows 10 has this turned off by default (you can turn it 
back on, but it isn't recommended), Samba 4.11.0 (the next version) will 
also have it turned off by default.
