"The account is not authorized to login from this station"

oldguy28 asked on

I just upgraded to win 10 build  9926. When I try to connect to other computers on my home network

I get the following message "the account is not authorized to login from this station".

Everything worked fine in previous builds.

Ok, thanks to a reply on Technet I have a workaround for this that seems to work !

Using REGEDIT it's necessary to create a DWORD value called 'AllowInsecureGuestAuth' in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters and set this new value to 1. A reboot will also be necessary.
