Unable to connect to \\kbox with Windows 10 machines.

 If a windows 10 machine is unable to connect to \\kbox but other Win 10 machines are able to, Check the OS build.

If the build is 1709, you will need to adjust a registry entry.

  1. open regedit
  2. navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters.
  3. change the value of AllowInsecureGuestAuth from 0 to 1.
  4. if the AllowInsecureGuestAuth value is not present, you will need to create it by right clicking on Parameters key name, and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Set the value data to 1.
After these steps you should be able to access the KBOX samba share.
