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 have a user that is trying to save an excel speadsheet that is located in a shared folder on a server, the user can open the file and edit ok but when they try to save the file the progress bar pops up but just hangs then a message pops up to saying "file not saved". They are using Windows 7.The user is new and I have just set up their account so thought it might be permission issues but I have logged the user in on two other different machines (1 win7 and 1 WinXP) and they have no problem at all.
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 have domain controller windows server 2003 and 30 domain members, and everything was working fineYesterday our xp client complain that they cannot access shared folders and files in our domain controller server.After some time i found that i can access the shared folder by name (\nameserver) but i cannot access them by IP (\XX.XX.XX.XX)[CODE]
Today when I tried to access one network folder, I could not access it. I was getting the message "computer name\folder name is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource".Then I went to the host computer and changed the permission to "everyone" but still I'm getting the same message.
We have recently ordered a laptop along with a docking station with the intention of connecting it with the desktop PC in the office. We want the documents folders of both computers to be synchronized and to that end we want to share the folders between each computer. However, to do so we will have to connect the laptop to the larger network in our office. Given the sensitive nature of the documents we only want the desktop PC and the laptop to be able to access these files and synchronize them.
Is there anyway in Windows 7 to specify exactly which computers are allowed access to shared folders on a computer? What's the best way to achieve the file synchronization between the two?
I have 6 computers here at the office, 5 of which are on XP Pro SP3 and the my main computer running Win 7 Pro SP1. Well 3 of the 5 XP machines can access a shared folder on the 7 machine 1 of the other XP machines can see the 7 computer on the network but can not access the shared folder and the final XP machine can not see the 7 computer at all
I've got a windows server 2003 machine which access internet over a Netgear N150 router also I've got an static IP, now internet is working properly even I can ping my machine from a remote machine.Here starts the real problem, I've shared few folders which I can't access from any remote machine not in my LAN.Although I could access my server through remote desktop and everything else is working fine, I've opened port 445 on router even that didn't worked also Windows firewall is OFF.Now when I try to browse my server through \myserverip it shows me a blank window but when I tried to access it like:
\myserveripsharedfolder it gives me error which reads something like
"File and printer sharing seems online but server is not responding on port 445."
I have created a share (entire partition) on my external hard drive, which is connected to my E4200 router. The connection to the share is \192.168.1.1ExHDOn the hard drive I've got a folder called "Mijn muziek" (Dutch for My music). So when i go to \192.168.1.1ExHDMijn muziek, the content of the folder is shown. The weird thing is, I can rename the folder, but i cannot add anything to the folder or remove anything from it. I can add files to other folders on the hard driveAnother thing I don't understand is that his folder shows up as "Music" when I create the share.Music is not a folder on the hard drive, but when I go to \192.168.1.1ExHDMusic, i'm in the "Mijn muziek" folder.I have the exact same problems with the folders "Mijn documenten" (shown as Documents) and "Mijn afbeeldingen" (shown as Pictures). Why i don't have write access on the Mijn muziek folder? And how I can manage to get write access on it?
I'm having Local Area Network(LAN) with 10-15 client computers connected to three servers. And I've folder containing files in one of the servers which I can access and proceed my daily downloading and uploading activity.Due to Virus I've formatted some of the client computers and re-installed everything. Now the problem is I can get Ping Command request successfully but can't access that folder from the clients instead it's been asking for username and password. Also, that username and password is not working even if used it.
We have a server machine running windows 7. just a few days ago, it started not being able to access its own sharing folders. From network, I can see all other computers(Xps and Window 7s). I can access other computer's sharing folders too. But when I try to access the server's own sharing folder, it gives me this error message:
"Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click diagnose. "

I am trying to share some files from my windows desktop PC, other windows devices on the network can access those files, but a laptop that runs Ubuntu and a WD TV Live, which runs its own OS cannot access the shared files. I had this problem a few weeks ago but it somehow fixed it self but the problem is back again.
Suddenly Can't access shared folders but others can . Laptop with Vista. Had many Mapped [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue ! important]Network [COLOR=blue ! important]Drive[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] issues about 2 months ago. Finally all resolved. Laptop was gone from our shop for about 2 weeks. Now it cannot see the Shared Folders (except for Public and Printers), and could not re-connect the Mapped Drives. Accesses Internet, can Ping the other PCs(all running Win7). Connect thru Wireless.
Why SUDDENLY, there are no shared folders visible on a Laptop?
Notes: This is the 2nd time this has happened. I changed alot of settings the first time. I re-checked all the settings this time.
Update: Magically works today 12-3-12. But what caused it? Why does Vista loose the ability to map network drives, when nothing
changes...I still want to know why for the next time this happens.
I have a small network running in my language academy which is causing me some issues. We have a server running Win XP with two folders, one for the teachers which is password protected and the other for the students which doesn't require a password. Up until two days it has been working well. However now the server keeps disconnecting from the internet quite randomly which stops us from connecting to the shared folders.
I've noticed that a caution icon appears next to the ethernet icon in the task bar when this problems occurs on the server. I have tried to right click and choose the repair option but it tell me that it cannot resolve the ip address. In some cases rebooting the server resolves the issues but in many case it doesn't.

I have shared folder s on my Win 7 PC.I can access these folders by typing in the username and password on a Mac.I can't access these folders on my Vista PC because there's no prompt to sign in.How do I change the login account on Vista so that it can access my Windows 7 shared folders?
I have a computer with some shared files on that I my LAN can access. However this is only on the immediate LAN The computers then all go in to a router which has NAT enabled and connects to the rest of the work network. I have opened up port 135 through 139 both UDP and TCP etc How can I add this folder as a network share on the computers outside of NAT (it even has a web address pointing to it that works for the web file server)
I have got a laptop and Desktop both of them have windows 7 ultimate OS and both of them have Kaspersky Pure V9.1 0.124 ( b ).
At home from the laptop I can access a shared folder on the desktop with no problem
I tried to enable the access to the shared folder over the internet while the laptop away from home, by implementing a VPN. I have successfully managed to configure a VPN IPSec between home router DrayTek 2820Vn that acting as VPN server, and the laptop that has TheGreenBow VPN client.
Through VPN tunnel laptop can ping the ip address for the router and the ip address for home printer and the ip address for home desktop , all of those are located at the other end of the VPN tunnel.
And I can access the web interface for the router as well by typing its private ip address. On the laptop and through the VPN tunnel I tried to map the shard folder on the desktop (\desktopipaddressSharedFolderName) , but it didn't work!!!.
when I existed Kaspersky on the desktop , I was able ping the desktop and to map the shared folder which is hosted on the desktop
How can I configure Kaspersky to let the the shared folder to be mapped via VPN ?

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?
How to get rid of Username Password prompt for VPN user connecting to computer with guest access on shared folders?If a VPN user types any word in the user name and hits enter without password, it gets in and sees shared folders, but I want this prompt to be disabled.
Have just had a stab at using my Netgear DGND3700's USB drive sharing - I had a spare external HDD + I want to be able to access files on it both over the 'net and from local network. Both work fine, very easy to set up, however I am unable to edit settings for the shared folder, which means I am unable to password protect it.
I don't need a password for local sharing but obviously it isn't ideal to have files freely available on the Internet, have looked into troubleshooting but can't find any similar stories with Netgears.I click "edit" or "create network folder" and it loads for a second or two but just stays on the same page. There is only one option to select but I have tried clicking the radio button first anyway, then clicking edit, same result.
I am trying to create a shared folder accessible to anyone on the network.The folowing are my settings under advanced sharing settings.
-Turn OFF network discovery -Turn ON file and print sharing -Turn ON sharing so anyone with network access can read/write files in the public folder -USE 128 Bit encryption -Turn ON password protected sharing.
The settings are as follows for the folder.Under the security tab, User EVERYONE, full control. There are no deny settings anywhere.Under The sharing Tab-Advanced Sharing- Share this folder is checked. After clicking Permissions, the only uder in here is EVERYONE with full control.When someone else on another computer clicks on my computers name, it asks for a username/password. I do not wish to give out the username/password of any user on this computer. I created another user on the computer that has the shared folder. When that username and password is entered on another computer, the computer does not accept it, and requests the username and password.WITHOUT totally reconfiging the network settings on the computer to share the folder, how do I create a folder that will permit everyone to read/write from? If reconfiguring of the network settings are required, what settings do I need to change to ensure high security, and will permit anyone on the network to access this folder?
our office has 2 branches recently the static ip of the branch was changed to a different subnet. earlier it used to be
184.108.40.206 subnet mask (255.255.255.128) main branch router (1) ip which forwards all request to server (dmz) - unchanged
220.127.116.11 subnet mask 255.255.255.128 sub branch (2) router ip changed to 18.104.22.168 subnet mask 255.255.255.224
after this change i am not able to access shared folders on the dmz server (1) (22.214.171.124). i am able to ping the ip and also able to open remote desktop connections from sub branch (2).i suspect that it is because of subnet change as i was earlier able to access shared folders?How can we access the shared folders across the subnet? what settings to change?
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.
I am using windows 7 and i have a folder which I share between other computers and laptops at home, but I want to share that folder as a web page, for example if i type the www or the ip address it should appear like a web page, i guess that way it will be faster then normal shared folder, is it possible that I assign an IP to that folder and forward it to the network users?
