I want to connect a Windows 8 Client to a SMB fileshare on a OS X Server 10.9. With OS X I have no problems, but I don't know what I have to do to get the Windows client connected.


It seems that your Windows 8 Client is using SMBv3 but your 10.9 Server is using SMBv2. There is a Tech-Note on the Microsoft-Support Site (see here) which suggests disabling the Security-Negotiation Settings, f.e. either manually set the required flag in the Registry:


RequireSecureNegotiate -Value 0 -Force

or running the following command in the PowerShell:

Set-SmbClientConfiguration -RequireSecuritySignature $true
