Sharing :: Windows 7 / XP Slow File Listings On Network Shares

Nov 2, 2011

Having got a new Windows 7 (64 bit Ultimate) PC, I decided to turn my old PC (XP Pro) into a file server. After much fun with Windows networking, I have one particular problem. Listing files on the server from the Win7 machine is ridiculously slow. A few directories have large numbers of files in them, around 10,000 image files. Browsing to one such folder on Win7, I have timed a listing and it took 48 seconds! That's a very long time to wait for a file listing. I have a network connection monitor running and it doesn't seem to be overloading the network- data was dribbling down the 100Base-T cable at about 200kiloBITS per second. Trying things the other way around, the same folder if placed on the Win7 machine and listed from the old XP machine can deliver a complete listing in about 5 seconds. I'm not sure which end has the problem; either the server is delivering file names very slowly or (my guess) the Win 7 machine is asking for them very slowly, perhaps asking for lots of crap that isn't needed like icons or file dimensions or something.

ASUS UL80 Laptop / Windows 7 - Slow File Sharing Speed Over LAN

Jul 15, 2011

I have two ASUS UL80 laptops and trying to copy files from one to another. I also have a Linksys router with WiFI on.

The speed of a file transfer via router + LAN cable (or only the LAN cable) is about 600KB/s. I tried to turn off firewalls on both PC's, but it increases the speed by only 100KB/s.

Sharing :: Windows 7 / SMB Shares Between Networks?

Feb 5, 2012

I'm running Windows 7 and I want to share folders with other users on my University network. I have the sharing enabled and people within my broadcast domain (the dorms) are able to access my shares. The problem occurs when trying to access those shares from academic buildings which are in a different broadcast domain (and are part of a different VLAN).I have verified with Wireshark that the requests to access the shared media do reach the Windows 7 computer, but for some reason it doesn't respond.

Sharing :: SFTP File Transfer Is Slow?

Apr 7, 2011

i am running windows server 2008 with the hyper V role installed.i have installed windows 7 Professional as a guest OS. assigned 2 GB of Ram to the machine. the point behind the VM is to virtualize my FTP server and incase a format is required i have the VM file on my 2nd partition, host OS on another. i use Cerberus FTP Server on the Win7 OS. i configured the server to accept SFTP and TLS connections. on the host OS i installed Fire FTP and File Zilla, both Clients will at max download a 4 MB file at 64 KB/Sec .. i have seen both jump to about 80 KB but was only a split second and never held.. however if i login without SFTP and transfer over standard protocol, i download at 1 MB/sec. which is my normal speeds. would this be only to the encryption process?, in the Cerberus Server there are options to adjust download speeds, i have left it default, and altered it to allow its max configuration. My ISP is not limiting any connections that shouldnt be.

Slow Speeds On PC Which Shares Wireless Network?

Aug 19, 2011

I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).

I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.

I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old).

Controlling The Data Flow And File Sharing Between Computers Is Slow?

Aug 14, 2011

I have 2 computers in my room which between them i very frequently share files between. Wirelessly they were both connected to my home's router until recently the router was removed, but will be back soon.The problem though, was that with using the router, file sharing between those computers was slow, and with the router gone, I was lost because there was no movement of data between the computers whatsoever, I had no crossover cable, but plenty of regular ethernet cable. Than I remembered something about gigabit lan not needing crossovers(both of the computers being gigabit) and I connected them, and marveled at the new way to share files. And more by the exponential boost in speed(800kb/s to a grand 12mb/s{though I still think that is slow for gigabit.}). Obviously I've overcome a problem, but that's not where this story ends, it comes with another problem. When the router is reconnected to these computers, will the files still transfer through there new found direct connection? or will it attempt to go through the router, only allowing me to get the speeds I want when one of these computers isn't connected to the router?

The Windows XP SP3 PC can login to the Windows 7 PC's file shares without a problem.But, the Windows 7 PC cannot login to the XP PC's file shares. Using the GUI I always get error code 0x800704b3. Using the "Net Use" command I always get "System error 67 has occurred. The network name cannot be found."This problem occurs regardless of whether I try to connect to the Windows XP PC by network name or IP address.On the Windows 7 PC I can successfully ping the Windows XP PC by both network name and IP address.

Windows 7 Not Reconnecting To Network Shares?

Jan 8, 2013

I am finally switching over my work computer from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have multiple network connections I connect to when I boot up. I've set myself as a new user on the servers I have to connect to, Windows 7 asked me to put in my username and password for each share, all connects fine but when I shutdown and restart, I see all my Shares as red x'ed "disconnected" and as I click on each one, I have to put in my username and password again. Windows XP always remembered my connections and logged me onto each share at boot up. I've checked "remember my credentials" but it's not doing it, Am I missing something? on any restart or shutdown, I have to click on each share and put in my login credentials.

Setting Up Windows 7 File Sharing Permissions?

Jan 8, 2012

Im in the process of trying to setup a home network. Computer A and Computer B are in the same workgroup. Username/password are the same.

Computer A = Windows XP sp3

Computer B = Windows 7 sp1

The two computers can communicate on the network. Can ping back and fourth with ip and computername. Computer B can access from what I can tell the whole C:/ drive from computer A. Doesnt ask for a password or anything like that. Just works the way it should.

However, I cant figure out how to share the C: drive from Computer B with Computer A.

Computer B

Click on C: >> Properties >> Sharing
And this is what i see on the sharing tab

It looks like its shared cause i see the \inteli5c. But when i go onto the other computer I cant access it. This picture doesnt seem to want to work. But that link is the screen that comes up when i try to access the C: from the opposite computer.

Netgear Router / File Sharing Between Windows 7 And Vista?

Jan 7, 2011

We have three desktops...2 Macs and a windows brother has a windows vista laptop, my mum has a Macbook laptop and for Christmas I got a windows 7 laptop! But that's not all that relevant because all I am really interested in is setting up file sharing between my old vista desktop and my new windows 7 laptop, so I can transfer my music, etc across. (I know that I could easily do this by other methods but I want filesharing set up for the future).Both computers are wirelessly connected to a Netgear router.Initially i tried fiddling around with various network settings and I've managed to get the two computers to recognise each other...and they can access the 'public' folder. I tried fiddling with advanced sharing to let them access other folders which appear as shared folders, but when i tried to access them from the other computer i was denied access.

WRT54GL - Why Does Windows 7 Make File Sharing Impossible

Oct 27, 2011

I want to transfer a few larges files from my mom's laptop to my laptop.

I brought my laptop to her house and connected to the network (her laptop is connected to Comcast through a Linksys WRT54GL router)

I made sure that network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing is turned on for both Home/Work and Public Networks on BOTH computers. I then shared her "Downloads" folder with EVERYONE for read and write. I then located her laptop on the Network in Windows Explorer, and tried opening the Downloads folder but it won't let me, says I don't have permission.

What is the deal with this? This would have worked 100% with WinXP.

I then tried disabling Firewalls, rechecked all the settings, and then I even setup a homegroup and joined the homegroup. I saw her computer on the homegroup, double clicked it, saw the Downloads folder, double clicked it - SAME ERROR.

All I want to do is transfer a few files from her laptop to mine, why does Windows7 make this impossible?? I am so frustrated!

I then tried sharing a folder on my laptop and tried accessing it on her computer, SAME problem. What do I do now? I'm ready to uninstall Windows7 and reinstall WindowsXP, this is BS!

Sharing :: Unable To File / Print Share Between Windows And Linux?

Oct 21, 2011

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....

Can't Access File Shares Using PPTP VPN - SBS2008

Jan 4, 2012

I have a PPTP VPN setup in RRAS on Windows SBS 2008.

The VPN seems to works fine, I can ping everything on the other end of the tunnel. RDP into workstations, access shares on the workstations. I can telnet into the exchange server and send mail. Get the default IIS page at http://server.

From the SBS I could even map shares I have on my local workstations, but when I try to access any of the shares on the server over the VPN using hostname or IP it fails, "The network path was not found".

Not really sure whats going on here, I've shut the firewall off without success. I reconfigured the VPN from scratch and rebooted the server and it didn't change a thing. I'm unsure how long this has been like this since no one uses the VPN to access file shares on the server. The few that use it just RDP into their workstations, no issue there. Though recently they started replacing a few desktops with laptops and they have nothing to RDP into, they only need access to a few spreadsheets while at home or on the road so I thought the VPN would work, I guess not..

LAN Shares Dropping / Slow On Private Subnet

Mar 11, 2012

The shares on the LAN constantly drop(for 4-5 seconds usually) or slow down and then speed up again. This only happens on the PCs using the private subnet but the internet is fine. We don't have any problems with shares on the public subnet though.Private subnet goes through a proxy server to reach the internet.Recently we had an internet outage in the building and suddenly shares weren't dropping or running slow anymore.
