Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 126.96.36.199OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bitProcessor: AMD Turion(tm) 64 Mobile Technology ML-28, x86 Family 15 Model 36 Stepping 2Processor Count: 1RAM: 1150 MbGraphics Card: ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M, 128 MbHard Drives: C: Total - 238464 MB, Free - 182597 MB;Motherboard: Quanta, 3093Antivirus: McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: EnabledOkay, that's one Notebook. 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?
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]
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 remote from home through a vpn to work. that works fine, but i want to be able to copy and paste files from work computer to my home computer. I've tried it and it doesnt work, so i know theres a setting somewhere, but where is it!?
PC A is connected to 3g wireless router and and 3g dongle is conneccted to the router.(dongle ip belongs to a vpn).I have added PC A to router's DMZ, so that all the requesta coming to the router through the dongle (vpn ip) are forwarded to PC A.(Now I can access PC A with the vpn ip(dongle)).Now what i want to do is to access the shared files and folders in PC A from a remote network which is connected to the vpn by using the dongle ip.(ex: \[dongle ip] should display the shared files and folders of PC A.)
I have have my Dir-655 set up as an access point for awhile and would like to change the wireless access code. I can't seem to figure out how to access the setup menu while it is an access point to do this. How I access the router when it is set up as an access point?

I have XP sp3 on my desktop and a new netbook with Win 7. I have set up wi-fi networking between them and have had some success of sharing a file. Today, I wanted to share my Firefox profile from my desktop to my netbook. I clicked on share this folder and could not find it on my netbook. I did a search with the title and nothing appears.
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.
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 remote connected my office computer to my home laptop using VPN. I want to share a folder in my home laptop to office network. I shared. i can see the sharing in my laptop network. But when I remote office computer, I cannot find this folder shared in network. How can I do it?
My first PC (XP) is attached to a wireless router via an Ethernet cable and my second PC (Vista) is connected to the same router via wireless. I have shared the files on both PC'S and can access the files of the Vista PC from the XP PC but when i try to access the files of the XP PC from the Vista PC i get the following error :
"\Studyoot (C) is not accessible. you might not have permission"

What I want to do is set up file sharing on both of my laptops so that they can share files both ways between them. I have in total 6 computers on my home network, and would like to limit the access to both to just the ones I want. I got about halfway before I hit an issue. My Windows 7 Ultimate is sharing both of its drives to my XP Home laptop, while being password protected for access from the other computers on my network. My XP Home Laptop cannot be shared without all the computers on my network having access too
I have a laptop running windows 7 and everything was working fine for file and printer sharing but all of a sudden the network printer just came up as offline and I can't access the network drive/printer on my Laptop but on my desktop where I have the printer plugged into everything is fine and the printer is online and is being shared. Both computers are running windows 7 and when I run the network diagnostics on the laptop it just says file and print sharing resource ( my PC ) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts
I access my files off of my desktop on my laptop, 360, and PS3 but now I cannot. I haven't made any significant changes to either computer.I've tried a ton of different things. All of the folders I want to share are set as shared. All of my sharing options are turned on in the Network and Sharing Center However, when I click on "Show me all the files and folders I am sharing", I see Pictures, Videos, and Music but I don't see the other 2 folders I have set as shared
I can't upload on file-sharing sites , I have tried to upload on wupload.com , fileserve.com , ****file.com and other sites and I click to upload but the progress don't start only stay in 0% I have waited 3 hours to upload a music with 150 MB and still in 0% progress .
My Sony video camera saves in .m2ts. I need to convert the file to .avi for editing. Is there freeware available and what should the settings be for the best quality. Can PMB � Picture Motion Browser export to AVI?
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'm on a network in an office where each person's computer has different specs, some PC, some Mac. We all share files off a common drive, either using it directly, or, copying it to our local machine to work on it then return it to the shared drive. I'm looking for a way to attach a notification to a file to let everyone know it has been "signed out" by someone, to avoid two people taking the same file at the same time.I looked at a simple program called Shediko Badges, which puts a badge over the icon, by right clickingon the file and choosing a badge from a menu, and undone just as easily, however, it can't be seen by everyone else on the network. This is the sort of thing I'm looking for, simple, cheap or free, that somehow marks a specific file without changing the name. It could be a colour change, an icon change... whatever, ideally with several options, for example where a different colour could be assigned to each person in the office, similar to the coloured labels on a Mac.
