Sharing :: Constant Updating Folder One Two Computers?
Oct 29, 2011
how can I make a folder that gets updated on a computer does the same thing to another computer on the same network, so while I add new music to my music folder on one computer it updates the files on the other computer? How can I do this?For instance I add a song to the album folder UNKNOWN on a downstairs computer Upstairs computer gets the song updated in the the UNKNOWN Album folder.
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
126.96.36.199 subnet mask (255.255.255.128) main branch router (1) ip which forwards all request to server (dmz) - unchanged
188.8.131.52 subnet mask 255.255.255.128 sub branch (2) router ip changed to 184.108.40.206 subnet mask 255.255.255.224
after this change i am not able to access shared folders on the dmz server (1) (220.127.116.11). 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 have a Buffalo LS-XLBB2 Linkstation NAS streaming wirelessly to a Sony SMP-N200 media player. For some reason, whenever I add or edit a file on the NAS via my PC the file list is not updating on the media player.I have the database set to refresh at 20 minute intervals, but some files and folders never show up and some do after a few days. There are no problems with file type as I can play them back fine when I connect a USB drive to the media player, it just seems like the media player isn't getting a copy of the new database. When I manually refresh the database, it makes matters worse. All of the files disappear on the media player list, except for one folder (the same folder every time). The original file list comes back again if I restart the NAS and media player, but the new files are still not listed. I can access the new files on the NAS fine with my PC or laptop, so the files are there, the media player just isn't updating the file list.
Things I've tried:
- Checking that both the NAS and media player firmware is up to date
- Retarting both units
- Resetting both units to default
- Trying different files types (the first file has never shown up, the second file showed up in the list 5 days later)
- Changing the database refresh intervals on the NAS
- Manually refreshing/initialising the NAS database
The main advice on other forums seems to be to set up a media server on the PC and stream though that, but the whole idea of getting the NAS was so that I could watch videos on my TV without having to have the PC on all the time.
i have a problem in the my local network.i have 5 computer.i share a Folder on computer 1. i see this folder on another computer but when i want to open this folder on computer 2 ,computer 3,computer 4 and computer 5 show the connect to computer 1 dialogbox and it say must insert username and password.
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 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?
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 have been trying share a folder across the network but with a lot of difficulty.the folder is on a server 2008R2 on one domain while the work stations are on a work group. how do i get the work station to access the shared folder without any password issues.
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 been using FrontPage 2003 successfully and recently as of 2 days ago...I wanted to edit the website and the files are ALL missing. UGH!!!! Its very frustrating that I cannot edit the website now and we are missing valuable information. I did see the files when I created a new Network Place with the prefix but I cannot edit and save to our website. Now I did ask MyHosting administrator but they are seriously taking longer to get back to me then needed. I can open Front Page, but of course, cannot publish anything to the website. More so, even just opening the files in server.com is the actual issue because I cannot change the website page. That's the files I need to change in Front Page. I did go to my account settings within myhosting server to the File Manager and YES! I could see all the files....but again I cannot save anything to the website or publish..I DID NOT DOWNLOAD anything over the past few days and have not gone to unauthorized websites that would have provided a virus. Everything else works fine.
how we can prevent learners from creating files or folders on Drive C without restricting the users from running programs installed on the C drive. We dont want learners sending tests or answers of tasks to one another by copying it in drive C. We are running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.I know you got a plan for us
I have a desktop and a laptop. I'm trying to share my external HD from my desktop, to my laptop.What I did was gave the local administrators group full share permissions to the drive, and of course the local administrators group also has full NTFS permission.That being said, I went to my laptop and did a Code:net use X: \mydesktopexternal /user:mydesktopuser PasswordExternal is the share name for the external HD on my desktop. The command worked successfully, however, I am still getting Access Denied when trying to get inside of this mapped drive.How and why does the command map the drive properly, using those credentials, but there's no access when trying to navigate to it? It works if I give Everyone full share permission, but I don't want anyone to just connect to it. Use password protection file sharing is enabled, but of course with "Everyone" given permission, that won't apply (at least to my knowledge).
The setup...DSL Modem (provides DHCP) LAN port to 24 Port switch. all hard wired PCs are directly attached to 24 port switch.All hard wired PCs can "see" each other.Linksys WRT54G router WAN port is connected to one of the LAN ports of the 24 port switch providing a separate network for my wireless devices.ALL wireless PCs can "see" each other.Problem is that the wired PCs can not "see" the wireless PCs.The wireless PCs can Ping the wired but not the other way around.What I want to do is share folders between the wired and wireless networks.( I know I can turn the router into an AP on the switches LAN, by disabling DHCP in the router, not using its WAN port and hooking one of its LAN ports to the 24 port switch.....BUT... I use the routers access restrictions to limit my kids internet time and without using the WAN port the router does not keep the date and time)It would be like doing file sharing from the internet to a private LAN but without the security concerns!
How to share a specific folder via LAN and enable permissions.More specifically, I'd like to share this laptop (Win 7 OS) with my Android PMP and Linux laptop (Mint OS) and grant it "full control" (read and write permissions) without granting "Everyone" control and without adding separate users with pw onto this laptop.(scroll to end of the post to skip details)Let's say the folder that I want to share is called "Bouncy." I right-clicked on "Bouncy", clicked on "Preferences", then enabled " Share.."to "Network Path: \MYCPUNAMEBouncy" and allowed Guest and Homegroup read/write privileges. From my Linux, I "Connected to Server" but couldn't connect.Under "Advanced Sharing" in Windows 7, I clicked "Share this folder" and created a profile under "Share name" => "Share name: Bouncy".I can connect from the Linux, but can't write to the Win 7 folder.
In "Advanced Sharing", under "Permissions for Bouncy", the "Group: Everyone" only has Read permissions. I clicked on "Add" and "Selected the object type: Users, Groups, or Built-in security principles" "From this location: MYCPUNAME". Under "Enter the object names to select" I wasn't quite sure what to write, so I clicked on "Advanced". The search results from "Find names" with these settings yield a ton of names that I'll omit. I first clicked on "MYNAME" in "My Folder": "MYCPUNAME". No access from Linux.I then changed the permissions to "Network", allowed full control permissions and now was able add files from my Linux. Which is good.How do I make it so that only a few specific IP addresses or Users (PMP and Linux laptop) have full control? How do I make it so that a password is required to access from LAN with full control?
I have a Windows 2003 SP2 server with a shared folder. This folder is accessed by 2 people on a regular basis. The problem we are experiencing is when a folder is created by user A, it cannot be moved by user B (and vice versa), as it says the folder is in use.The exact error is: Error Moving File or Folder.Cannot move <filename>: Access is denied.Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.I have explicitly set full control for both users on the folder. The drive has 70GB of 500GB remaining. I have also used File Server Management to verify the files were not in use when they were being moved.The server is Windows 2003, SP2. Domain environment, with all relevant users having permissions on the folder, and the everyone account removed. Any other operation inside the shared folder works fine.
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 have a desktop computer connected by ethernet (VISTA) and a Windows7 laptop by wireless. I am trying to share folders have got the share saying no passwords and yet when I click on a folder it asks for user name and password, no passwords have been set to open either computers.
A desktop running XP, connected via ethernet to a linksys E1200 router that is connected w/ethernet to satelite modem. And a Laptop running Windows 7 that is communicating wireless to the router.Question: Can I share files between the two computers this way, or do I have to get a cradlepoint router?
I was wondering if I plugged an ethernet cable from my laptop (which has wireless internet) into a nearby computer (which does not have internet) if they would share the internet? i did plug in the ethernet cable, and my computer acquires a network address but has limited or no connectivity
I have 2 computers(1 and 2) connected to a router with ethenet cables and printer connected to computer 1. With both computers on, both can use the printer. With computer 1 turned off, computer 2 cannot access the printer. So, what do I need to allow computer 2 to access the computer when computer 1 is off?

I am trying to share my printer with the other 2 computers on my home network. I have the printer connected to my XP machine. The other 2 computers are running XP and Windows 7. The Windows 7 machine is directly connected to the router and my computer and the other XP computer are connected wirelessly.I've shared my printer and given it a share name. But the other 2 computers cannot access my computer for some reason.I'm not sure why they can't access my computer to see the shared printer.
On the laptop, the info bar is on the left side, the website tabs on the top, this shifts the other computers screenview down and to the right, it also cuts off the right side and bottom, with still leaving space on the right side and bottom. The pointer on the lap top does not line up with the desktop, because the screen is shifted, but only a portion of the screen is visible anyway. I used the same password and log in on both computers, don't know if they have to be different.There is full a screen option at the top right, but this causes the top tabs and info buttons on the left side to go black.
I was hoping to be able to save a file on one computer and for it to be accessed from a computer in the next room.The first computer is connected to the internet and when emails are received I would like to save them to a folder in my documents and then be able to go onto the other computer, go to my documents and open the file I just saved from computer one.
First off, for almost ever my two computers (Laptop/Desktop) linked on the same network/home group have been able to transfer files to each other over without any problem. I must have done something when Norton Expired on my Laptop which is causing the problem now. (Both running windows 7)Both computers show up in the network tabs, as normal. From my desktop I can access my laptop like I always could. I can play movies etc. but I can't make any changes or transfer files. As it says "You need permission to perfrom this action."Now from my Laptop, I can also see my Desktop in the network tabs. but I can not view anything on the computer. When I try to browse through the network tabs, I get [Windows cannot access \network error code 0x8007035].
1. I had it working before so I know they are properly connected.
2. Both computers can see eachother
3. My Desktop can browse my laptops files (but not change anything)
4. My Laptop can NOT browse my desktop as it says the network error code
5. Neither Computer has a firewall on
6. Neither Computer is running antivirus software
7. In the Homegroup sharing tabs, both computers are marked as "allowed" in the media streaming options.
Ive recently gotten four computers together on the same workgroup. They are all Windows 7 in some form or fashion, and I need them to be able to share the C:\Usersusername files so we can grab files from others desktops and work on data spread across multiple computers.
Ive tried using the homegroup function and Ive also tried just about everything and I cannot get them to access each others folders. No matter what I do it says I dont have the access privileges required to open folders on another computer. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would consider myself an 8 or 9 in being technologically savvy, and after an entire day working on it Im just unable to figure this out.
-All computers are on the same workgroup
-All computers can see each other on the network
-All computers have file sharing enabled
-Firewalls are completely off
-All computers run through the same router (though 2 go through a hub then the router, the other 2 go through another hub then router)
When I go to "advanced sharing settings" and try to give permission to a user on another computer the work group doesn't even appear. I can only give access to local users on each individual computer.
I was wondering if it is possible to share my internet connection to specific computers on my home network. Both my laptop and desktop computer is connected to the same Wi-Fi router (no internet connection). This network connection is mainly used for file sharing. I want to share the mobile internet connection on my laptop with my pc without giving the other computers on my network access to the internet connection and without disconnecting from the home Wi-Fi router. Is this possible and if so how
I have a friend with a mac laptop that I need to transfer roughly ~110 GB from. I have a laptop that dual boots Windows 7 and Kubuntu 12.10. Easiest way to directly transfer these files between our computersNeither of us has a large enough external hard drive.
