Many moons after the orginal post I was struggling with this issue and the ability deploy the Agent to one of my servers. I knew the two were related but could not google the solution to save my life. Turns out the solution was the reverse of what is posted in the article:
My other servers did not even have these keys and were therefore not affected during the Agent push. Only one of my servers had the keys and they were set to 0. Setting to 1 resolved ping and agent deployment issue for me. Keep in mind your Security Policies may require that shares be disabled.
Hope this helps anyone who may still be struggling with this issue so many months later.
I've got this problem as well. It's a fresh install on a new server with the agents still existing from a previous installation which no longer exists. Is there anyway to turn off the 'Accept connections fro m ePO server' via registry or something else?
Or even re-enable the tray icon so I can manually disable this setting?
