Access windows administrative shares from linux

Hi everyone, I'm Rhiwyth and I'm new here.

Every share I make is visible and accessible in linux except the default windows administrative shares like //example-pc/c$, //example-pc/admin$ and so on. The error message displayed is NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED.

The windows firewall is disabled. What can I do to make this work?
Thank you.

My guess is that you don't provide the right credntials to access the shares. How do you access them?
I would use smbclient and explicitly provide the Windows admin password to test this.
