How to access to ADMIN$ share on workgroup with local accounts

I was just trying to access to my PC running Windows 10 (2004) from Windows server 2019 with an error “Access Denied  Failed to connect to ADMIN$ share”.

After trial and error, it is not firewall or access issue, you still need to check the required ports though.

And the issue is with Remote UAC preventing local accounts accessing admin$ share.

to disable, we will need to add registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Create DWORD “LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy” with value “1”

Final step is to reboot or restart the “server” service.
