Windows

You can’t access this shared folder because your organization’s security policies block unauthenticated guest access

So I tried to connect this drive as a Network file share to my laptop and I was prompted with this error message on my screen. So I thought to share this post in my blog so anyone who has the same issue able to find this in the internet easily.

This is the prompted error message

  1. So I found that this access is blocking from the local group policy and I opened the Run window (Win + R) and typed gpedit.msc to open the Local Group Policy Editor.
  2. Navigated to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Lanman Workstation and selected the Enable insecure guest logons
