Issues accessing C$ Admin shares on some systems

Zoltar W/ Alumni Posts: 23 Security Scout

Hi There,


I am getting inconsistent result when trying to access C$ shares on our CS V13.10 Windows 7 machines.


I can access a fair number of C$ Adin shares fine using an administrator account.


However, there are a number of systems where accessing the C$ fails. If I then disable the F-Secure firewall – I can access the C$ share.


All the systems are in same F-Secure Policy group using the same firewall rules, so we do not understand why accessing C$ works on some systems but not on others?


We even get the issues with some systems being accessing via the C$ ok & other “failing” on the same subnet – so it does not seem network related – more something “different” on the “failed” access systems?


Has anyone else seen this?

    Hello Zoltar,


    Please, contact support, and ask for fresh Firewall hotfix FSFW1010-HF03. If it will not help, we'll most likely need diagnostic information + FW debug logs from affected hosts for analysis.


    Best regards,

    Thanks for that.

    I now have a support call open for this.

    I will update this post later on when I get some news.
