    • VPN, Express Route, … those will be the usual routes to take. Many corporate networks allow this outbound, some SIP doe block it for SOHO offices yes.

  1. When I do this in an administrator cmd it tells me “system error 5 Access is denied”

    If I leave the password out, it does prompt me for it on the command line. If I make an Azure VM and use it there, it works.

    How can I tell if this is a port blocked issue?

  2. Tried this. Telnet to the 445 port no problem. Unable to add the share via CMD or File Explorer. Network name cannot be found, even though is resolves in DNS.

  3. I have tried several times to complete like this, and I cannot get it to work. Three different locations, three different ISP’s in two states. Called Microsoft and opened a ticket, and they said I required a VPN. I made sure it was Windows 10 as well, so I am not sure what I am missing.

    • Some ISP do block the ports for SMB on their network. It might be that. A VPN to Azure works around this. Also realize that this is a demo for educational purposes. In most organizations outgoing traffic to 445 should be blocked as well.
