Windows network access

adroman used Ask the Experts™
I have Wi-Fi router with local network
PC #1 - Windows Server 2008 R2 connected to wired LAN interface
PC #2 – laptop with Windows 8.1 x64 connected to Wi-Fi network of this router
I created same administrator account in both computers
So, I am able to access network share of PC \\server\c$ from my laptop and not able to access network share of my laptop (\\laptop\c$) from PC with same account credentials

Is maybe network type on laptop - public network or admin share is disabled on laptop?


Wi-Fi network configured as Private, Administrative shares are enabled :(

open regedit
navigate to
add DWORD (32bit) LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy and change value from 0 to 1

or use registry key from attachment as wizard :)

I tried that on my home laptop and it worked. :(
I could not log to admin share without that registry key

My laptop network is set like this:
private network
advanced sharing:
turn on network discovery
   turn on automatic....

turn on file and printer sharing
allow windows to manage homegroup....

all networks
128 bit encryption
turn on password-protected sharing

Any antivirus or firewall on that laptop that could interrupt login?
Or try another account....


Thanx, it works! There already was parameter LocalAccountTokenPolicy with DWORD 1, and I mess up it with your LocalAccountTokenFilterPolic key. Thank you very much. COOOL!!!!!! :)))))))))))))
