Access denied attempting to access windows 7 administrative shares in a workgroup.

Getting Rid of the “Access Denied” Error Message

To solve this issue you need to make a small registry modification on the TARGET computer.

Use Regedit to add a dword value named LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy to the following key and set it to “1″

Note: To revert to the original setting, change the LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy value to 0 (zero).

Next, try to access the administrative share on the remote machine. This time you should succeed

@#$@#%#$% Gmail has blocked me!

you’ve had an “event” on your email server and now you’re on all kinds of RBLs. You get yourself off all the bad guy lists, but google is still blocking you with a message that looks something like this:
550-5.7.1 [x.x.x.x] Our system has detected that this message is likely unsolicited mail. To reduce the amount of spam sent to

or #5.5.0 smtp;550-5.7.1 [x.x.x.x] Our system has detected an unusual rate of ……

And you find that google doesn’t have a way to get yourselves off their list. Can you say 1-800-wedontgiveadamn? There is an I can’t send mail to you guys form that you can fill out here: but don’t hold your breath.

The one thing you CAN do, however, is make sure you have an SPF record setup on your sending domain. If you don’t have one setup, setting one up will almost instantly release the block by Google.

To setup an SPF record, simple add the following txt record under a host id of @.
v=spf1 mx ptr ip4:x.x.x.x ~all

And then tell everyone that google is the new evil empire (along with apple and microsoft).
