What is 'err 53' ?
What version of Windows 10 ? Some of them have guest access turned off 
by default and the only way to get guest access (even to a Samba server) 
is to turn it back on.

Again why ? only of any use if you are using network browsing and unless 
you are using an ancient version of Samba, you are not using SMBv1 that 
network browsing relies on.
