If you’re prompted for a port for your Windows 10 system at any point, try 445 or 139. While SMB is a bit tricky to set up, it is well worth the time you invest in it. If you have to use different operating systems e.g., a Mac and a Windows 10 PC, you’ll find that network sharing is the easiest way to move files between the two. Runs on: Win2000, Windows 7, Windows 7 x64, WinServer, Win Vista, Win Vista x64, WinXP NFSv4.1 Client for Windows v.1.0 A client implementation of the Network File System 4.1 protocol (RFC 5661) for Windows, including support for Parallel NFS (pNFS) file layouts.
Pretty sure there is no such solution for connecting windows to shares via AFP.
Are you sure Comcast does not allow SMB sharing, as I have Comcast and regularly connect to my home server (mac mini) from my work VDI using Windows 7 via SMB, and it works fine. Maybe you subscribe to Comcast Business and they restrict it there?

Having SMB wide open for any home users to connect to isn't secure. For the sake of security I would suggest use a VPN for your home users or extend your LAN by using a secure service that's 'always on' like LogMeIn Hamachi. I use Hamachi to support my clients for my side business, and I can connect to them using any and all protocols any time of day.
