With KB3161949 update Microsoft changed the way server is allowed to respond to NetBIOS queries and prevents responses to outside subnets.
This obviously brings problem to external devices trying to authenticate or bind with server.
To overcome this you can either:
- uninstall security update KB3161949 from your server (not recommended)
- update registry parameter for NetBT with Dword AllowNBToInternet set to 1.
As we do not recommend to uninstall the patch itself, here is how to add the Dword using CMD
reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters" /v "AllowNBToInternet" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
or using PowerShell
Set-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters -Name AllowNBToInternet -Type DWord -Value 1
After the parameter is created, you have to reload server and after that it will respond to outside NBSTAT calls
