Sharing a file on an XP Pro SP3 machine with W7

Question: Sharing a file on an XP Pro SP3 machine with W7

Hi folks,

I have a small work network setup:

4 x W7 machines
1 x XP Pro SP3 machine

The XP machine shares a .qbw (QuickBooks Pro 2010) company file, and the machine appears on the network, and all machines can see it.

They are all in the same Workgroup, Permissions on the XP file/folder are setup fine, with 'Everyone' having full access.

On double clicking the shared folder on any of the W7 machines, it prompts you for a password.

The dialogue box titled 'Windows Security' states:


Code:
Enter Network Password
Enter your password to connect to: MACHINEX
Username:
Password:
So I try no user/pass and it won't let me in, I try a user account from MACHINEX (the XP machine) using the domain and correct password - it does not work.

Please help as this damn annoying, and really should be straightforward to share between to Windows machines on a Microsoft network...

Answer: Sharing a file on an XP Pro SP3 machine with W7

Hey Bertles86,
I'm wondering a couple of things. One, are you able to get to any other information on this xp machine? Two, have you tried the password for Quickbooks?

Thanks!

The following happens on my personal Win 7 32bit machine with several folders.

I constantly get a "Denied Access" message when trying to open certain folders in windows explorer. All these folders have a small arrow across the top left corner of their icon. IE I cannot access the Videos folder but if I go via the libraries option then all is ok.

I have tried changing the sharing options several times but it just seems like there is a master control holding things back.

Hi Lee,

How's Brisbane? I'm planning to head over there for Qantm College.

Seems like you have lost ownership magically. Are you able to right click the affected folders and choose 'take ownership'? If you have UAC enabled, disable it (slider all the way to the lowest setting) temporarily to get that Administrator prompt out of the way for a bit. You can re-enable it later.

Hi everyone ! I have a win2k pro machine hard wired to a wireless router and my main machine running xp pro. I can get to the sharing the 2 files I want but then it goes away but will sometimes return the files shared are user specific on both machines. I get a message stating " file is not accesible you may not have permission to use this resource you may not have access to use this resource contact the admin of this server to find out if you have access permissions ."

the network path was not found.


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated GaryLee

My new employer recently gave me a laptop with Win2K on it and I can not get it to access a shared folder on my home machine that has Win XP Pro on it. I am doing this over my 802.11b network at home.

The message I receive when I double click on the icon for my Win XP machine in networking neighborhood on my Win2K machine is "The network place could not be added because the following error has occurred: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request." I have never scene this type of error before and have no idea how to resolve it.

As background, my Win XP Pro machine is part of a simple workgroup I created via the "Set up a Home Network" wizard in Win XP. However, my work network is on a domain - I am not sure what that means but when I log onto my work machine, the Win2K laptop, I have to type [email protected][domain name] which I believe means we use a "domain-based network.

Any advice on how I can resolve this problem would be much
appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Problems File Sharing from Win2K to XP Pro Machine

What it sounds like you need to do is to log on to the work laptop "Locally" instead of trying to log onto the domain. I don't know how it is even letting you log into the domain. Since if you are at home you wouldn't have a domain controller avail to log onto. But anyway, try logging in on that local machine and also make sure that workgroup is set to workgroup. Unless your XP machine has got a workgroup named something other than workgroup. If so, named the laptop workgroup the same.

I'm on an XP machine, and I am able to post/view/write files on one shared folder. Another though, I was able to, and now I cannot. When I try to post a file to it, I get error msg: "File may be set to read only"

Well, it's not, I checked it. What could be causing this problem. I can post it to the other shared folder without a problem.

G'day all! (first post here!! :P)

Ok..so this is my situation:

I have a server...and i have installed a printer to it - the Canon LBP 3200 - the server is a 32bit machine running win7 pro...anyways...this printer does not have ANY 64bit drivers (which my main machine runs win7 ulti x64) so i am unable to install the printer on my main machine...

I was wondering, is there a way to share it from the server to the 64bit machine without installing any drivers?

Or is there a way to install 32bit drivers on a 64bit Machine?

Or can anyone find any 64 bit drivers/custom 64bit drivers?

:S

Thanx all!!

Answer:Sharing a printer from 32bit machine to 64bit machine without drivers.

ok so i tried this method: Go to Control Panel. Choose printer. Then choose Add Printer.

Choose Add a local printer. Click on Create a new port. The default in the drop down box is Local Port. Do not change that. Click Next.

A dialogue box will appear asking for you to enter a port name. Type in the \\computer name\printer name ie. My computer's name is basement and the printer name is EpsonSty so I typed in \\basement\epsonsty

But when i make my own port name it says access is denied... :S

any help?

Can file sharing be temporarily disabled in windows without affecting any other services. I guess what I am looking for is an "on or off " - switch" without having to disable file sharing the tradional way (rebooting etc). Is there a cmd.com option? Windows service etc...

I would just really like to know how to turn it off....lets say for 5 minutes or 10 minutes at a time and easily resume all shared folders and services.

My problem seems to be the opposite of most people's - I added a Windows 7 laptop to my previously all-XP network without any trouble, simply enrolling the new machine in the existing Workgroup, and everything works fine.

Except for just one snag: from my XP machine I can see every single file on the Windows 7 machine, which raises privacy issues even within a family!

How do I stop this happening, and revert back to the situation I had before, where machines on the network could only see each other's shared folders?

Thanks in advance for any help.
 

Answer:How do I stop my XP machine seeing every file on networked Windows 7 machine?

Well, a rough and dirty security fix would be to make sure that "Password Protected Sharing" in the Network and Sharing Center is set to "On." That way the files will be safe but still visible.

Are you logging into w7 with a password?

Create an account below Administrator level with a password and use that.

Theoretically w7 should not allow a drive to be shared, so check all the folders that show the "Share" symbol and set the Share to "Not Shared".

In Vista, what happens when you enable password protected file sharing over normal file sharing?

I realize it requires credentials but what is changed on the system to require this?

If I enable just File Sharing (and not the password protected option) and have the share/NTFS permissions set for a user, connecting to the share fails as it never prompts for the username/password.

When you turn on password protected sharing you are prompted then for a username/password. What I want to know is what changes on the system to then prompt for credentials?

Same thing in reverse. If I set the 'require password for sharing' and have the group 'Everyone' in the share and NTFS permissions I am still prompted for credentials if I connect.

Thanks!

Hi all,

I have a wireless network set up in my house and I want to share some of the folders on my computer so that other family members can listen to my music etc. When I click to turn Network Discovery on, and click apply, it just stays off, same goes for File Sharing.
When I try to turn public folder sharing on, after I click apply I get an error message saying "incorrect function". I have shared stuff on my work network so I'm not sure what's wrong here.

I think I have this (almost) working. I want to share my main computer W7 D drive with a laptop that is older and can't upgrade which is XP. I have got the XP seeing the D drive on the main computer, but when I try to access it I get the following.

"\\Familydesktop\d 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 permision.

Ok so on the Familydesktop (W7) this is what I setup. under computer I choose the "D" drive right click.
I choose "share with", advanced sharing, and the button Advanced sharing.
checked the box for "share this folder"
Permission "Everyone"
Then when I get out of the advanced sharing window, back to the network window I choose "network & sharing center"
turned off "Password protect sharing".
I have double checked this setup.

On the old laptop (XP)I went to properties of "my computer", Computer Name.
Chose "Change" and changed from mshome to workgroup.
restarted computer
Control panel.. "Network setup wizard"checked box to "Ignore disconnected hardware"
chose Residential Gateway
made sure computer name was ok, and changed from mshome to workgroup.
Turned on file/printer sharing.
then finished out of this wizard.

Can anyone see where else I need permissions set?

Hi,
I am having trouble connecting from an XP (Home) desktop machine to a Win 7 (Home Premium) laptop to share files.
I have read and followed a lot of posts to no avail.
specifically I have followed the advice in "How to make Windows 7 work with older Windows versions for networking and file sharing"

- both machines are in the same workgroup
- there is no trouble going from Win 7 to the XP box
- on win 7 the network is defined as a 'Work' network
- firewalls are disabled on both boxes
- Advanced Network settings
- Network discovery in ON
- File and Printer Sharing is ON
- Public folder sharing is ON
- password protected sharing is OFF
- Allow Windows to manage Homegroup connections
- the shared folder in Win 7 says its shared (its not in the public tree)
- On folder Advanced setting decurity, 'Everyone' has been added 
- On folder Advanced setting sharing it says "People without a user account and password for this computer can access folders shared with everyone"

The XP box is using XP Home which can only use 'Simple File Sharing'.
On the XP box the win7 machine appears in the Network list under the workgroup.
If I click on the machine I get a login prompt!
Attempting to map a drive to the win7 box the same network is shown browsing to the win7 machine does not list any of the shares. (it also does not ask for a login)

Interestingly if I go back to the network and enter the userid / password then I can see the shares... Read more

I have a netbook (home 64bit win10) and a PC (64bit pro win7) sharing the same wired hub. I want them to be entirely 'un-networked' so that no communication between them is possible. I have tried to turn off 'file and printer sharing' on my PC (because i assume i should) but when i reboot i find it turned back on. I've seen this problem addressed in this and other forums, but no solution that i could comprehend.

I also have a (VMP74) media player running off the hub and would like to access video files on my PC from that device, but only if that does not compromise access between netbook and PC.

I should add - in case it's not obvious - that i really don't have much of a clue what i'm doing and am very confused with the myriad options. Particularly the 'local' 'home or work' 'public' 'all' and media streaming options, whatever they are.

I'd be grateful if someone could explain and/or confirm what radio buttons to tick to achieve what i want to do. Many thanks

Settings: P2P w/ XPHome + external app (Sabre if you need to know).

Workstation A sports a fully (as much as WinXP home allows) shared folder. Others can read, write, modify, delete, etc. files. That has been verified.

When Sabre writes files into that folder, they are NOT accessible from the other workstations. They are listed in Win Xplorer, but CAN'T be opened, even less modified or deleted. They are considered by Windoze as being still in use.

However, I retain full control over these files from workstation A, where I can move them to another folder, then move them back. Hence allowing full access to them from the the rest of the network.

Conclusion: It has to do with the way Windoze handles files, some switch the Sabre app didn't set properly.

Question: What gives?

TIA.

I have a client that has an existing XP desktop which is using a Verizon Wireless broadband device for an internet connetion (no other broadband available in the area). So he simply connects to it wirelessly and he gets his internet.

Complication starts here. He just got a Windows 7 laptop and needs to share the internet connection of the Verizon device. Only problem is that the laptop is out of range of the verizon device. So, we have a Linksys wireless router that is connected to the XP machine and gives us the range we need to reach the laptop.

My trouble is that I can't get any sort of connection between the two computers. They are on the same workgroup and I have enabled everything in the sharing options on the Win7 machine. My goal is to have the Win7 laptop connect to the XP machine and share the internet connection and printer and files etc...

Here is a diagram of the situation. I've had one person tell me he doesn't think it's possible. But I bet there is a way.

Any help would be appreciated!

Answer:Internet Connection Sharing with XP machine

Going purely by the pic, wouldn't it work better if you cable the Linksys to the VZW device? then have both W7 and XP connect to the Linksys wireless for internet and sharing?

Anyway, can you provide ipconfig /all details for the W7 and XP machine, this might help paint a picture of why you cannot connect from W7 to XP.

Hi,

I have enabled file sharing but The Windows 7 Laptop keeps giving me an unknown error when trying to join a home group after I have typed in the password from my PC. The XP Laptop doesn't even find my PC on the network. Files sharing worked fine using my old router but I have just updated to a Virgin Media Super Hub and think it's either something to do with Anti-Virus Software blocking connections or the security setup of my Virgin Super Hub.

I have had no problems setting up my PS3 and 360 for online gaming and enabling access to my tower’s HD media files. I’ve also always had internet on my laptop but I really NEED is my laptop to be able to access my tower
Here is the crux of the situation: When I turn on Windows Media Player’s “Media Sharing” (and ps3/360/laptop do all show up) it shares the media files BUT it kills my laptop internet access. Seems I can get internet back on laptop but never back any file sharing with tower and never access to my printer anymore.

**Right now the status is wireless laptop DOES have internet and access to all files on Tower.
360 and Ps3 have internet access, but not MEDIA access because I have to keep that off.....

What the *%$# am I doing wrong? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I had a hard disc fail on My XP Professional machine. I was running Locoscript on virtual machine. I had a backups of the vhd file (and others).
My replacement machine is Windows 7 with a virtual machine with integrated XP (and no floppy drive). I have successfully created a DOS image and I can read and update the Locoscript database.
However, my long-term plan was always to download the Locoscript database, do some conversion, and load it to Access - I did do design and initial testing of an Access database, but I've not revisited it for a bit..
The next step is to get the data out virtual DOS image, as an ASCII file. See alsobelow
Q1 How can I get the data out of VM?! (Is there a way?)
I have no other plans for the DOS VM apart from continuing to update the Locoscript short-termn and subsequently extracting its data to elsewhere..I don't know what version of DOS I'm on, nor how to find out. Ah! Theres'a a folder C:MSDOS 6.
I havent tried installing VM additions as I've read that MS VM doesn't support shared files even with Additions.
Ideally, I'd like to do all this on my own machine, eithe by VM 2004 on the W 7 host as as well as the MS VM. Or even could I install VM2004 under the Integrated XP virtuaul machine?
Q2 What would you recommend either of these as a way forward?
I can use a borrowed XP professional machine short term. It does have a floppy drive. I've installed VM 2004 from the web, and used the .vhd file, and it works, but I've not found a way of installing... Read more

When I share a folder from my windows 7 machine, my XP machines are unable to access those folders; I get NOT ACCESSIBLE errors, the only folder that works is USERS, which isn't a whole lot of use to me, as all my data is on another drive. The windows 7 machine is able to see all shared files and folders on the XP machines. All computers are connected to the same work group, and I tried giving shared folders the same exact settings as Users, but to no avail. I've even shut off windows firewall and it still doesn't work.

I am being dinged for a user name and password to access files on a vista machine on our network. All our other computers are xp.

I thought I turned off user profiles/passwords in the control panel and rebooted but it is still dinging me for a user name and password.

That machine has never had a password set up on it.

Suggestions? It is otherwise visible and file/printer sharing is turned on, etc.

This is just plain weird...! Here is what is happening. I have three PCs all on the same MS Home network, not password protected. Connected via Netgear router

Windows 7 x64 machine 'A' - Ethernet
Windows 7 x64 machine 'B' - Wireless only
Winxows XP SP3 laptop - Ethernet

Win7 'A' has a range of shared folders the other two can access at will throughout the day.

I can spend all day randomly accessing Win7 'A's shared folders from the XP laptop and everything is working fine. BUT If Win7 'B' accesses the shared folders on Win7 'A' then trying to access afterwards from XP laptop fails with a "//Win7APC is unavailable, contact network admin etc. etc." fault pop-up.

Doesn't matter what I do, the laptop just won't connect after Win7 'B' has been accessing 'A's files.

Looking the other way (once this fault occurs) Win7 'A' can see and access the Shared folder on the XP laptop and write and modify anything within fine..

Only solution I have found is to reboot Win7 'A' then all is well, the laptop can access again as normal.

So Win7 'B' accessing the Win7 'A' files seems to be causing the loss of access to the laptop. I should add that the accesses are not simultaneous. I have tried this with the laptop idle while 'B' accesses 'A' and then once 'B' is finished and not connected I try to access once more from the laptop - it produces the same fault. Only the rebooting of 'A' will cure it.

Any ideas why a simple folder access from another machine on the networ... Read more

Hey,

I want to set up a wireless home network where I can share my internet connection, printer, and also share files among computers.
For the past year, I have been using a dlink wireless router to share my dsl connection. The set-up is currently as follows: modem to router and from the router one pc is connected with wires and three laptops are connected wirelessly. This has been fine to share the internet, but I don't know how to share the printer connected to the pc.
I would really appreciate anyones help.

Thanks
 

Answer:printer sharing/file sharing

You didn't say what operating system(s) you use, so I guess I get to choose.

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a Windows PC other than XP or 2k Pro or Vista.

Windows XP firewall (if SP2) will be properly configured by the wizard. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders (or drives) or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (20 minutes or so) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often you can speed up this process via Search for other computers.

When computers show up in My Network Places, double click on one to see its shares. If that includes a printer, you can right click on the printer to connect to it.

I'm very hesitant to install a router and one of my servers on the same machine. IDK if this is just because I'm so used to this not being a standard practice, but to me it just seems questionable as to whether it is safe. I would think that it may be possibe for a machine sharing the same NIC to somehow spy on the other mahice using the same shared port.

Anyway, I need to setup some servers for testing and I'm wondering if it will be secure enough to put them all on the same machine (poweredge 2950).

What do you people think about this?

WMC recording/playback and media/file sharing seems to work fine until I go to copy a file between drives, where one of those drives is currently using some of its i/o bandwidth to do media. The copy hogs the i/o bandwidth, doing nasty things to the real-time needs.

How do I permanently tell Win7 x64 to do all [explorer] copies at a lower CPU and i/o (explorer.exe & system) priority and/or elevate WMC CPU & i/o (ehshell.exe?) and file/media sharing priorities a bit?

The PC is up to date on patches/drivers and should be able to prioritize obvious applications?

Answer:Problem with file copying adversely affecting media/file sharing & WMC

Hello so I have this situation regarding my windows 8.1 machine and how it connects to my Windows Server 2012 machine.


I have my Windows server machine directly connected to the internet on one ethernet port and the other is on a 192.168.1.0 private network.  


My windows 8.1 Machine is also on this private network(192.168.1.0) and whenever I attempt to take files from my Windows server machine using its Local ip address it begins a connection from the Windows Server 2012 machines WAN IP to the local even
though the established connection happened via file sharing by direct network ip address. This connection uses up all the throughput from my router causing every machine on the network to experience lag online.


I also have Windows 7 machines and this issue does not occur when taking files from the server machine as it does it through LAN.


I don't understand how the Windows 8.1 machine can even know my Server 2012 machines IP address or why its deciding to do these file transfers over the internet rather then LAN. 


Here's an example since its a very difficult issue to explain.

I have a Private network (192.168.1.0) this network reaches the internet from WAN 1.1.1.2. 

In this network I have machines Windows 8.1 (192.168.1.8) and Windows server 2012 (192.168.1.12)

Answer:File Sharing Folder file recovery

From the help file:
"If your contact deletes a shared file, your local copy will be permanently deleted. However, if you delete a shared file, you can still recover it from the recycle bin. If you want to keep a file, copy it to a nonsharing folder."

So if you deleted it, it should be in the recycle bin as long as it hasn't been emptied. If the person who sent you the file deleted it, they should have it in their recycle bin.

Is it necessary to enable File History as each User individually?

If File History is turned on for both users, all of the Public stuff gets backed up twice.  So stupid.

Alright, I'm bout to lose my mind with this thing, and I have no idea what I'm going to do. I have a Laptop running Vista. This computer is connected to a home network, which has an XP machine. All I'm trying to do is copy a file from the XP machine to this new Vista laptop. I have no problem seeing the file, it's right there. I copy it, but when I go to paste it, (not into a network folder, a folder I have created) it tells me "You need permission to perform this action."

I have done everything short of taking the hard drive out of my XP machine, taking my laptop apart and putting that hard drive in. I have disabled UAC. I have changed the permissions on the XP machine. I have unlocked the super secret Administrator logon on Vista, and it still won't let me do it. I don't know what is going on with this thing. Having Vista has been the biggest mistake of my computer life. Does anyone have any other suggestion on what I can do? I'm at my wit's end. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You may just save this laptop from having a hole in the display.

You just type in say the top 100 or 500 and it will list them in order per file size. Well, I did my top 200 and the 3rd one on the list was "Norton 360" which I never use and it's taking up 200MB's of my HD. So, Is it safe to delete or should I leave well enough alone.

At work there is an XP machine that is reporting it cannot boot due to a missing or corrupted file. Going entirely from memory it was something like:Windows/System32/Config.... (I am not exactly sure right now, but you get the general idea)After trying the XP install disk and several repair options. One required a floppy disk that we do not have, and the other leads to a command line repair that I am not comfortable enough proceeding with since both apparent boot fixing options warn about erasing current settings (I do not want to make it difficult to log back onto the server or POS program after).There is a nearly identical machine purchased at the same time that should have an identical file on it.... Is this a reasonable option: Use a Puppy Linux CD to copy the file from one computer to a flash drive and then replace the corrupted file on the nonworking machine the same way. Or is there another simple way to get this running again.Specs that I know: Slim desktop system, Pentium 4, XP professional, generic business system, server 2003 network.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Answer:XP machine at work missing file

It is the registry that is corrupted, & because each registry is different on different machines you cannot just copy one over. You need to a saved copy from within the poorly machine so you have two options:Use the repair console as described HERE - it does involve a bit of command-line stuff, but nothing major. Check this link anyway as it tells you the locations of the files you need to replace.Alternatively you can use a live Linux disk (Your Puppy, Ubuntu or Kaspersky Rescue disk for example) - boot from that & then use its file manager to replace the corrupted file(s) from the repair folder, make sure you rename the original files before copying the repair ones over, just in case.Note that it is worth doing all 4 registry files whilst you are there as it's not uncommon to have more than one of the files corrupted.After all of this, do a scan of your harddrive for errors - something must have caused the problem in the first place."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

I have one Windows 7 computer on my network that shares a license to the other windows 10 computers. I have been over everything ensuring that share options on both ends are correct. Most of the time all the computers can connect and use the license after the Win 10 PC gets restarted, but as it gets further from the restart it seem that they lose this connection. Some computers lose it faster than others. Keep in mind all the PCs are set to never go to sleep. While a restart does seem to temporarily fix the issue someone doing that every time they need the program is very time consuming. The connection also dropped while they were using the program and it crashed which is pretty much the worst thing that could happen. We cannot seem to move just simply move the license file as we get a "cannot find server" message when that is tried. The program is GibbsCAM if anybody knows how to move those licenses. That will be my next google search. Thank you

Also I cant send image files through MSN as people dont even see the transfers im trying to send so therefore cant accept them.

Question: File sharing

I have successfully got sharing files over a network. The only problem is why do I have two of each folders in my nework places. ie: My documents folder and then there is a shared my documents folder and the same things are in both. So for both desktop computer and laptop there are duplicate folders. Instead of me just deleting the one I would like to know if I've done something wrong.

Answer:File sharing

It is because you created shorcuts to the shares and placed them in MNP, then the auto-population system has done its job and added its own shortcuts to the shares. If you want to add share shortcuts manually, you need to turn off auto-population from Folder Options (in any folder window) but it is preferable to rely solely on auto-population.

Now there is a problem that the PC can access the shared files on the laptop, but the laptop does not even show any other network connections.

Internet access is fine for both machines.

I have checked the computer names and the workgroup name are ok.

I have searched various forums but have not been able to find a solution that either seems appropriate or that I can understand.

Answer:file sharing

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt for the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer... Read more

I am have two computers running windows xp professional and each computer has 3 different NIC cards. 1 wireless, 1 wired through switch and 1 wired directly.

I used the network setup wizard to configure file sharing however neither computer can see the other's shared folders. The only firewall running is the default windows firewall.

I suspect it has something to do with the different NIC cards and it is trying to find shared folders using the wireless as opposed to through the LAN. Any thoughts about how I can resolve this issue?

Answer:File sharing Help

The basics for troubleshooting are:

1. Make sure you have the same IP scheme (e.g. 192.168.0.x).

2. Make sure you have the same Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS IP addresses.

3. Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.

4. Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.

5. Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)

6. For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.

7. With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

8. More details about how to network XP can be found at:
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_network.htm

9. More details about how to troubleshoot TCP/IP networks can be found at:
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/trouble.htm

There continues to be a lot of misinformation about needing NetBEUI or to changing the NetBIOS setting. You can ignore both. Installing NetBEUI to solve a networking problem will just mask a some underlying and potentially important misconfiguration with TCP/IP. The default NetBIOS setting usually works. If browsing is a problem, you might set it to Enabled. But do not Disable it.

Question: File Sharing

Hi there.
In my flat we have a wireless network for sharing files and internet to everyone. But in my room i have a wired network to just share between my computers.
I have been wondering how to share files only throught the ethernet network and not throught the wireless. Does anyone know how to do this? I have one mac with OS X Leopard and one Windows XP computer

Thanks

Answer:File Sharing

yes it can be done; I've got three systems and rent two rooms and provide Internet access to the roomies.
I fully share my three and block everything else with this technique;
you must control the ip address assignments;
I like mapping the trusted systems MAC addresses into predetermined ip addresses.
(you can also assign STATIC ip addresses, but still need [y] below)
This allows my systems to have ip addresses like 192.168.0.2, 0.3, 0.4;
[y] I then add (clone) 6 fake MAC addresses
(take any known MAC copy it and just modify the last XX settings)
to map ip assignments like 192.168.0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 0.10
[y] which creates a range of trusted ip addresses (used in the firewall rules)
of 192.168.0.1 ---> 192.168.0.10
you have to have a better firewall than the default windows version
(eg Comodo, SunBelt)
enable sharing as normal
allow port access for your trusted systems only
(add a rule Allow i/o tcp/udp ports 135-139,445,631 source and dest ip range 192.168.x.1 -- 192.168.x.10)
everything else will default to denied access
on [4] above, some firewalls have a means to define a trusted subnet which works well too.

monitor the firewall log for exceptions and you will see denied access entries for
192.168.x.11 and above.
