I have a computer with windows 2003 server installed on it. There is one shared folder. The computer's name is SERVER. The shared folder's name is OFFICE.Whenever I type \SERVEROFFICE in a windows explorer window, I get a pop up window with a message that says that Windows does not find \SERVEROFFICE.I mean, I should be able to see the folder in this way because this OFFICE folder is shared and I am doing this from the same computer and not from another computer in the LAN.
I was having trouble sharing some folders, so I went in and "shared" some individual files. Now when I check what is shared, I not only have the files, I also have the folder they are located in and I don't need both. How do I get rid of the individual file sharing?
I created a share on our server for a few AD users and set those users up in a group I set that group to have the permissions to read/write this share. When one of those users tries to connect to the share from a PC, he is denied permissions, but when the same user connects to the share from a Mac, the file permissions work as they are set.I checked effective permissions for each user in the group, and they have the access they are supposed to. I've tried re-creating the share, recreating the group, and comparing the permissions to another share that is set up the same way (but working properly).
I have enabled Network filtering on MAC address on my D-Link 628 router.
I've noticed entries in the log file - "Access Denied to LAN System with MAC address ______________" for 2 different MAC addresses. I do not recognize these MAC addresses. The entry that immediately follows these messages - "Above message repeated 466 times and 124 times. The entries for these 2 MAC addresses has been occurring multiple times with different repeat numbers over the past few days.
Is this an indication that someone nearby my router is attempting to hack into my wireless router or do I have a configuration issue?
XP desktop hard wired to router. XP and Vista laptops wireless. Vista has SP1 and both XPs are SP3. All computers can see each other. Vista can access the XP drives. The 2 XP computers can access each other. The 2 XP computers cannot access the VISTA. Access is denied. Firewalls are off on all computers. I have tried permissions on both sharing and security tabs with no luck.
I've Googled without a relevant result. I've searched the Comodo forum at great length and in detail. I've read the Comodo guide (all 300+ pages of it). I cannot find a description, in language that I can understand, of how to enable file & print sharing through Comodo's Firewall, with their free Internet Security product, version 5.5.
I have between 8 and 10 computers on my home LAN. They are split between the default workgroup name 'WORKGROUP' and the name I have assigned to my home LAN.There is a mixture of Win XP, Win 7 32 & 64 and various levels of Ubuntu.
After 6 long days of trying I have made not one step forward in allowing file/printer sharing.The Windows machines are all running Comodo Internet Security, on one of which I have created my idea of a set of rules to allow file/print sharing.The Windows XP machine, with a user created set of firewall rules,can see no computers on the network (using My Network Places), aside from itself and the shares created on it.It cannot see the computers which are not in the workgroup.
The most common error message this computer generates is 'network path not found'. A win 7 32 bit computer, in the workgroup, can see all other computers that are in the workgroup, including itself, twice.It cannot access any shares on the Linux computers. It is able to access shares on the Windows XP computer.ufw Firewall is installed and enabled on one Linux machine and has a vaguely similar set of file/print sharing rules.That machine can see nothing at the Network place.A couple of hours ago it could see the machines that are NOT in my workgroup but could not see the machines that are!
Another linux computer can see the two workgroups (named and default) within the windows network, but cannot browse either workgroup. The most common error message from sharing attempts with the Linux machines is 'unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server'.Right now I am reduced to transferring USB sticks between adjacent computers....
All I want to do is to share a couple of Folders, My Documents and Downloads, between two PC's on a Workgroup network.Networking is not my strongest point but up until now I have managed quite successfully.The setup is :-
1st PC is Mike-Laptoppc is on a Wireless connection to an ADSL+2 router/modem.
2nd PC is a Desktop Alexs-PC connected via cable to the same router/modem
I can share all the shared folders from the Desktop to the Laptop, but I can only share Media streaming on the Desktop from the Laptop, so I know there is a connection between the two computers. I have now turned off Media streaming to concentrate on just folder sharing.Whenever I try to access the Laptop from the Desktop I get an " Access Denied you do not have permission contact your administrator " box on the desktop.
Having problem locating why when a user logs on to their profile, their personal network drive shows everyones personal drive file and they have acces to all files.This is a major security concern as uppper management files are then accessable.It is random, may not always be displayed, or always occur on the same user.The User drive normally displays.
joed on \serverusers$ (H:)
When this takes place the users name is replaced with just Users Users on \serverusers$ (H:) (This can sometimes change to Z drive) This then exposes all user drives.This does not run from a script but is used in AD under the profile drive letter. Have tried to:Rebuild profile in Active Directory. (New Profile)Re Build user profile on workstation>Rebuild Operating system on Workstation.Change drive on the user profile in AD letter H to Z.Have also tried on a different workstation.
I installed windows server 2008 in another country with active directory - DNS server - file services Roles. with public IP.I can RDC the server - I can ping IP local and WAN - I can ping computer name from Local only not WAN.I can access the shared files locally using \IPaddresssharedmy problem is that I can't access \IPaddressshared from outside the network.[CODE]

The other is a Gateway w34OUI running XP Media Center. Both are in great condition for their ages. Good for them. I really want to network the two with an RJ45 crossover cable, and all the instructions I've found on our illustrious internet tell me it's easy. HOWEVER, when I've only begun to follow those instructions (one list is from the God Microsoft itself), NONE OF ANY of the sets of instructions matches the steps offered on either one of these notebooks. The options do not correspond. The results do not correspond. The closest I get is a window that says I do not have access to such file sharing. These are MY computers, and have always been, and I am attempting to network using administrator ID logins on BOTH. What's the REAL way to network only two notebooks with an RJ45 crossover cable?
Can I use two WAP54G APs in bridge mode to file share. I'm not interested in sharing internet. Just need to share files between two desktops. Would this work if I set a static IP on the two computers or do I need to have a router in the network as well?
When I'm trying to access a computer within our network, I could not access it and this is the error message "\computer_name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request".
I am trying to establish a connection with an already existing IPsec VPN for file sharing. I click on the icon and get error messages when I type the correct username and password. I also entered the shared secret key correctly. I do not know where to enter the "group" name that coincides with the key I was given.
I'm in the middle of restoring a Windows XP computer after a drive failure, and on the new system, the Turn On File and Printer Sharing setting has been forcing a reboot and always resets itself to Off after the restart.
[code] Basically, we used to use Outlook for our customer management, but after I tried to design a custom form for customers that suited our needs better than Outlook's default form (i.e. we don't need state, country, region, etc. for each customer, and we'd prefer to have spots for Roof, Shingle, Shingle color, etc. in their place), we ended up turning OneNote into our new Customer Management System.Our problem is sharing files, and the security or lack thereof that goes along with it.We used to save all the files to a single computer, and use Windows 7 Home group to access them. That worked okay, but often we couldn't see the file-holding computer, and would have to disconnect/reconnect to the internet.
We recently bought a NAS HD, which actually works a lot better than I expected. Unfortunately, we've learned recently that new employees are not always the most trustworthy. So this is what we are trying to do:We want to set up some type of way for us to save, store, and access files, which allows us to keep track of who has done what (access, save, copy, delete, print, etc.), preferably one where we can set up alerts if certain things happen (i.e. someone copies and pastes the entire thing, or attempts to delete). We've run into the problem where, yes, we want people to be able to copy and paste certain documents, yes we want people to be able to print, but no we don't want someone to be able to print out our entire customer lists, current project lists, etc.This NAS HD (MyBook Live 2TB by Western Digital) could quite possibly have the most ridiculous set up I've ever encountered. I can set up accounts and passwords, but they are completely irrelevant because from "Computer" you can just select the z:/ drive and it will still take you to our files. We just brought on a couple new people, and its like, everyone tells them to come to me in regards to the computers, and I can't even hook them up to the internet because it would give them access to our network, which in turn gives them access to our z:/ drive, which contains every file our company has.
\toshibapictures is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of theis server to find out if you have permissions.
I have a little small network created with 6 computers. 5 of them are windows xp home and pro. jsut bought a new laptop with windows 7 64 bit home pre. All the xp laptops can share files easily but the windows 7 is giving me a really hard time.
The win xp computers can see the windows 7 folders showing up in my network places but when i try and open then it gives me this error "\toshibapictures is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of theis server to find out if you have permissions"
I need setting up File/Folder/Printer sharing in small office LAN and also secure Files (password protect) among users. I have attached two JPG files in which i have tried my best to show the network diagram and how i want to share the files and folders. All the PCs are connected and i have made one Windows 7 Ultimate PC acting as File Server keeping its D Drive in sharing with other five Windows 7 Ultimate PCs acting as clients. I just want to know how to protect Files as per my requirement. There are no fixed PC of any dept users. All the users or Dept Head use any PCs as per availability.
Before I moved home I had one netgear router supplied by virgin media. On my home network I had my pc sharing it's printer and also some shared folders I.e. Music folder, my documents etc. Now I've moved I have had a new netgear box supplied by virgin media (which I call virgin media 7) which because of the shape of the building doesn't reach my bed room. To fix this I have had to connect my old netgear box (which I call virgin media 8) to the new one via 10m of CAT5e but now I can't access my shared printer or shared folders on my win xp pc which is connected to virgin media 7 via wireless if my vista laptop is connected to virgin media 8. I have tried looking in the setting for the option that makes it just act as an wireless extention to vm7 but they have removed the menu from the settings.
our workstations provide data (files) to this network by using RDP. RDP allows a user to share the entire contents of one's C drive. I dislike this and many others in my organization also dislike this (from a security threat point of view). I am looking for an alternative and more secure approach.
recently i was trying to share files between two computers using a networking switch.(windows xp) I tried using network setup wizard on the host computer it only gave me two drive options f drive and the floppy disc drive. so i selected f drive to copy files. I inserted a cd and clicked next but nothing happened. i tried clicking format button and it asked me to 'insert a cd to f drive' so I avoided the format button.My computer has a backup system which someone installed and im not too sure about it so I was wondering if f drive was referring to the backup system (sort of looks like an external hard drive with lights on it connected to modem) or maybe referring to usb port. I did not try using my usb yet. The second pc I noticed did not have network setup wizard on control panel and was not sure if i needed it. I heard that a router has a firewall and is more safer than using a networking switch. at this stage i dont need internet connection for the second pc
Ok, I have a new win 7 pc and my old win xp pc has all my video and picture files. On both of my xp pc's i can transfer files via my network places. Can I and if so how do I do that from the xp pc to the win 7 pc? I can stream the videos from the xp on the win 7 but not transfer them.
I've recently had an issue where when I turn on File and Printer Sharing, and click apply, I go straight back to the advanced setting menu and its switched back to off despite me changing it.I cheked my services menu and I'm not sure what file and printer sharing has a dependancy on, but Workstation, Netlogon, and Computer Browser will not turn on with the error "windows could not start *** service on the local computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start"I network printers and servers for a living, so this is an issue when I'm troubleshooting problems.I cant really name everything thats been installed on this laptop, it changes pretty consistently, but no programs should have interfered with my network
i have 50 web IP in my company. i should be share some document, file and software on these all web IP. i should be installed one PC in Windows server 08 R2 and other PC should be installed in Windows 7. how should be share document and file in server 08 R2 system.
I recently pulled apart 2 external hard drives and made them internal hard drives in my computer. They hold a lot of video files as my computer is used as a media centre and is networked to several xbox360`s Using windows media centre around the house. Before I made the Hard drives internal, I used my android tablet with the es file explorer app to browse and move the files around. After they were made internal I was unable to continue to do that and when ever i tried to access one of those drives I got a message saying 'log in failure The account has no permissions
I am using Compaq Presario CQ41. OS Windows 7. I am connected to other PCs via LAN. My computer name is "Compaq" and the ones that I connected to are named "NEXT" and "TESTING". I am able to access data to "NEXT", "TESTING" and vice versa which means that the LAN is working. I want to share a certain file to "NEXT" but I want that file not to be shared by "TESTING".
How can I share file to other computer in a home networ? Here is my network configuration: I'm using a Cisco modem with wireless (main) then I connect a D-link router on LAN port to get a better signal in the basement. On the windows 7 I turn ON the sharing setup at the PC on D-link. However the PC on D-link connection doesn't see the other PCs on the Cisco connection.
I use peer to peer network system with winxp sp2. I also use LAN Broadband and unmanaged switch to share the connection among 5 systems with winxp on each of the system. I use another USB broadband for backup anytime the first one is not working. The problem now is anytime i sue the USB broadband, it is only the host system that will work. other system will not work. I use it sometimes and it worked suddenly it stopped working and I have tried all I can.
we have a router with voip phones but no wifi, so i installed a separate wifi router but its ip is 192 range while the LAN is 10.1.1x range, how can i set it up so wirelessley connected PC's have access the file share and internet?
