2 possibilities to connect :

1. connect as ‘Guest’ (such as from a machine not joined to a domain),
2. connect as ‘Anonymous’. If you use something like PowerShell or CMD remoting (to run a command line Invoke-Command -Computer example { dir \\fileshare\folder }’ then you connect as ‘Anonymous’

 

For “Guest” :

1. ‘Everyone’ needed *share* permissions (you probably could just get away with ‘Guest’) 2. <hostname of local machine>\Guest needed *file* permissions 3. The group policy settingĀ “Deny access to this computer from the network” cannot contain ‘Guest’ 4. The group policy settings “Accounts: Guest account status” must be ‘Enabled’ 5. The Guest account on the machine needed to be enabled ———–

For ‘Anonymous’ :

1. ‘Everyone’ has share permissions 2. ‘Everyone’ has file permissions 3. The group policy setting ‘Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users needed to be enabled 4. The group policy setting ‘Network access: Shares that can be accessed anonymously’ needed to contain the share name

The ‘named pipe’ settings did not seem to effect my results.
