Preferred Solution: Error 0x80070035 while accessing shared folder in different machine

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a readyNAS Duo where I keep all my music files, a few days ago the Raidar program stopped allowing me to browse the drives saying to check spelling and error code 0x80070035 was displayed, I can access the NAS via it's web page but this does not allow me to access the file structure.

This is via my router.

If I connect the ethernet cable from the NAS straight into the PC all is fine, any ideas.

I just set up a new Win 7 64 bit system to replace my old desktop. I've been running Win 7 32 for quite a while and have never had trouble with networking per se, until now.

I've set up the sharing, etc. the way I usually do. Network Discovery, file sharing, etc. are all turned on with no password. All PCs are part of the same workgroup.

I have several shares on this new machine that my other computers can access just fine. However, the local PC cannot access its own shares. I get the 0x80070035 error. Bizarre.

As I said, I have set up sharing on all these machines more than once. It always works fine. Even accessing its own shares. But not this one. And the only difference I can spot is that this machine is 64bit, which I wouldn't think would have any bearing on this.

I have specific reasons for the local PC to be able to access its own shares. I have no workaround. It has to be able to do this or some of my software will not function properly. I have to be able to map drives locally and also set up paths to folders that other computers will use. So, they have to be network paths, not local paths. And the software is aware that the path is not available locally. I can't fool it.

Can anyone get me pointed in the right direction on this?

Thanks!
Matt

Hi,

Are you using Norton Firewall by any chance? Were you using that on your older 32 bit system too?

Hi there
For those running VM's and have difficulty getting printers to work properly on the HOST WINDOWS machine, you can often get the device to work by connecting it up to a LINUX VM and sharing it with WINDOWS via samba.

Have a look at Post 3 in this thread where I just couldn't get an HP Deskjet 3520 to print in any shape or form after the latest W10 CU (1703) update with the cumulative extra updates applied - even though Windows saw the device and said Printed OK -- print just disappeared !!!

In the post I've also given the entries you need to make in the SAMBA configuration (SMB.CONF) file.

HP Deskjet 3520 doesn't print on W10 CU update Solved - Windows 10 Forums

On the Linux system the trick is to ensure the CUPS printer (Linux printing system) is enabled as RAW so the Windows system will do all the rendering -- for example if you need to print an EXCEL spreadsheet and ensure also on the Linux system that the printer is marked as SHARED -- there's usually a hardware configuration section where you can set this -- depends on the distro what it actually looks like.

In my case.



Cheers
jimbo

I'm a complete Linux newbie but reasonably proficient with Windows.
I've set up a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 32bit and shared specific folders on my Win7 PC. Everything should work okay as they both can see each other, but when I try on Ubuntu to access the Win7 shared folder it asks me for username and password. In Win7 I'm always logged in as Administrator with no password set and Ubuntu won't let me connect to it leaving the password blank. It just keeps asking for my username/password over and over again without any kind of error message. It doesn't come up with 'access denied' or anything, it just keeps refreshing the username/password login/connect gui so I can't say which side of the fence the problem is occurring on though I suspect it's on the Ubuntu side. Any ideas on how to get around this?

Answer:Ubuntu not accessing Win7 shared folder

I have a feeling that you might have to set a password in Windows... Without it Windows thinks it's not secure and wont share the folder, (even with other Windows users).
With apologies if I've got that completely wrong!

Simsy

Running into a problem and I can't seem to find an answer for it. I have a folder on my Windows 7 64 bit Pro computer. I have set it up with a hidden share ($). The sharing is set up properly with Everyone having access. I have 10 additional computers on the network of different OSs (Vista Business, XP Pro and Windows 7 32 Pro). My problem is that after 6 computers actively access the folder, I can't get any additional computers to access it - gives me an error stating I have reached my max limit. I know Windows 7 Pro should allow 20 users, give or take, but just 6! I found out that each computer that accessed the folder was showing as having 3 sessions inComputer Management. I have no idea how to correct this so I can get others to be able to access this folder at the same time.

Any suggestions? TIA

Answer:Multiple sessions are created when accessing a shared folder in Win7

Are the shares "shared folder" showing up three times in those computers? Try unsharing "share with nobody" or remove Everyone from the list, for this folder two times and see if that gets rid of the extra shares.

Hello all, I'm having a problem accessing a shared drive on a new computer. I used to run a Plex media server on my gaming desktop, but I just got a new Windows machine (the media PC) with a 300GB external drive permanently plugged in. All video files are stored on the 300GB external and is set as Plex's library folder.

List of Computers in my house:
Gaming Desktop - Win10, Wired
Macbook Knockoff - Win10, Wireless
Father's Desktop - Win7, Wired
Sister's Laptop - Win10, Wireless
BrandNew Media PC - Win10, Wireless

Problem:
Plex is installed on the new media PC and can be accessed through the web interface by any device. The video files are stored on the 300GB external hard drive mapped to D:\.

I want to make the D:\ drive into a shared folder so that any computer on this network can place and delete files onto this D:\ drive.
I have D:\ set as a shared drive, permissions = shared with "everyone", Full Control/Read/Write

Problem is that whenever I try to access the Media PC from my gaming desktop it gives me "WINDOWS cannot access \\MEDIACENTER". However, when I try from my Macbook knockoff, it works perfectly. What gives?

Current Status:
All time zones correct
All Win10 machines use Microsoft email login, PIN entry
Media PC pingable from gaming desktop
All networks set to "Private"
Network discovery - ONFile/Printer Sharing - ONPublic Folder Sharing - ONPassword Protected Sharing - OFFWindows Firewall is ON for private networks

Answer:Cannot access shared folder on Win 10 Machine, tried a lot of things!

Did you look at the tutorials at https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/...e_Maintenance/ before posting. Has nothing to do with PLEX, it has to do with whether you are using a local account or a Microsoft account for logging into your computers running Windows 10. Also the PLEX server is best to not be on a machine that you are using for gaming, since it can cause PLEX or the game program you are running to cause issues. I use a Synology DS216-2 plus for my PLEX server and upgraded the RAM to 8gb, which you can go up to 16gb if you want and i have had zero issues that way.

Hi

I am currently setting up a standard machine that will act as a template for all other new machines that we are soon to deploy.

This new machine is running Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP 1

We have shared folders on a Windows 2000 SP4 machine which is part of our workgroup.

I can see this computer using the My Network Places and browsing the workgroup on my XP Pro machine. I can then click on that machine and see the shared folders, however, the problem is this:

When I try to access these folders (and I do have permission to), the XP Pro machine hangs and ends up needing a restart.

This problem on ly manifests itself with the XP Pro machines, not any of our Win2K, Win95 or Win98 machines.

Any ideas, solutions?

After reinstalling Vista on the "upstairs" machine and rebuilding our home network (cable through router) the Vista machine can access files on the XP machine . . . but not the reverse. Although I can see the two Vista drives OK I'm prompted for a usernameassword, a curiosity since only one passwordless user exists in our Vista setup. (Entering that username and leaving the password blank still gave a "this drive is not accessible" error.)

I can follow the instructions on this page (File and Printer Sharing in Windows Vista) partway through, but when I get to the window shown in Figure 6 the "Share" button is grayed out. I did go into "Advanced Sharing" and put a check in the "Share this folder" check box, but that didn't eliminate the password requirement.

you have just answered your own question, you have shared the files publicly, which means that vista is reading the files as public files and deem them a security threat. Changing your connection to a private network on the vista rig should fix the problem.

I have all 4 PC's in the office using Windows 7 Pro. I have one computer that is designated to house my share folder for scanning documents and attaching them to our management system.  We are finding that multiple problems occur - not at once and at
different times .  Sometimes, the document within the shared folder called "IMAGEBATCH" will not delete.  Sometimes that document deletes, and then re-appears within the IMAGEBATCH folder.  Sometimes the document will not
scan through the network to the IMAGEBATCH folder.  Sometimes we get an error saying we "don't have permission to delete this file".  These circumstances occur on all computers, including the computer that houses the original file IMAGEBATCH. 
Sometimes in the day, each computer that is supposedly looking at the same IMAGEBATCH folder see different files.
Restarting the computer clears the problems, but then start right back up at irregular intervals, sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the middle of the day.

Hi all,
I fixed a stubborn networking issue and hopefully someone else can benefit from all the frustration I have experienced over the last few days.

Some background. This was a workgroup network not a domain client/server. 
Also, Windows HomeGroup wizards were not used - just accounts and passwords. 
I have five NAS boxes for storage and backup. These NAS boxes use CIFS or SMB file systems. IP address are assigned through DHCP. It is a very simple yet secure workgroup net. Everything was OK then it hit the fan.
I installed a new router after the old one failed. I powered down the entire network, cabled up and configured the new router. On my old Vista notebook PC all five NAS devices were OK. In Vista, Windows Explorer, I could access all the folders and files
on all the NAS boxes.
However on all the other systems, Windows 7 or Windows 8, I would get errors. In Windows Explorer I could see "\\MyNAS\Share\" but cannot navigate to it. 

I would get an error:
"\\MyNAS\Share\ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. The specified network name is no longer available."

When I try to rename a folder on the D: partition that used to be a Windows XP recovery partition that has some Pokemon commissions in it, I get this message.
"This folder is shared with other people
If you rename this folder, it will no longer be shared."
 
But the folder is not shared nor has it ever been.
 
What is going on? Why does Windows 7 think that it is shared?

Answer:“This folder is shared with other people” when renaming not shared folder

Hello there, 
 
This happens because of the way the Access Control List is queried by Windows Explorer to determine if the folder is shared. Because this folder you tried to rename is a child folder of a parent folder and the two folders have a different security entries, Windows will treat as a shared folder. This causes Explorer to give you the warning that you received. 
 
​Just double check, this must be a shared folder. 
 
Hope this helps!

Hello, I'm having an issue sharing folders between two computers both running windows 7. The computers see each other on the network and the Public folder is accessible but when I try to share a folder from another user account the folder shows up on the network but is not accessible. It gives me a 'no permission to access this file, contact a network administrator' error message. I have set the permissions of the file to allow full read and write for everyone. In advanced sharing settings in the Network and Sharing center I have file sharing on, password protected sharing off, I've tried both encryption settings without any effect and I've also tried turning password protected sharing on which doesn't fix the problem. Homesharing does not work between these computers either, They see each other but will not open any folders. I am at a bit of a loss as to what to try next, I've tested disabling all of my antivirus and firewalls, I made sure that they were on the same workgroup. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. Thank you.

I am sharing a folder on a windows 7 computer. On a windows vista computer, I can see the w7 computer listed in network, and I can see the shared folder. But when I double click on the folder, it says "Network Error, Windows cannot access \\W7COMPUTER\testshare
Check the spelling of the name, otherwise there might be a problem with your network"
I think the problem is on the windows 7 computer, but I don't know how to fix it

Answer:network error, windows cannot access shared folder

Trying to find a solution to this issue.

2 XP Media Center SP3 PCs connected via Ethernet to router. PC A has Shared Documents folder with permissions set to allow 'Everyone' Full Control. Only Windows Firewall onboard, NOD32 virus scanner. PC B can see/open files from share on PC A, but any attempts to move or copy result in error message "your current security settings do not allow this action". Both PCs have IE6, File & Print Sharing enabled and turning off Windows Firewall doesn't change anything. What else can I try? Thanks.
 

Answer:Moving/copying files from shared folder causes error

Make sure you have the permissions set on both the Security tab as well as the Sharing tab.

On the shared folder security permissions, make sure that you go to the Advanced settings and check the box that tells it to replace the permissions on child objects as well.

Any advice on how to do this? I have file sharing enabled on both computers. When I view computers and devices from my vista machine, I see my XP machine, but it is showing up as a media device. When I click on it, windows media player opens. It doesn't seem like it should do this since I am sharing more than just media files. In windows media player i get the error, "Before you can access files in this library, you first must have access to this library".

I am running into an issue with users renaming files on a shared drive. When the users try to rename, they get the error "A file name can't contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? < > |". However, neither the new or old filename contains
any of these characters, or any other invalid characters as far as I can determine, just alphanumeric characters and spaces.When they try to rename it again, it works without an issue.
I have found reports of this error being generated if the file path is too long, but all users are accessing this from a shared drive, and even if the share name is taken into account the file path and name are easily under 100 characters.
I have 3 users on 3 different systems reporting this issue, so I don't think it is user error.
The workstations are running Windows 7 Pro, SP1. The server is Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise, Service Pack 2.
The users are located at a remote site, and accessing the share over a site to site VPN. There are XP workstations at the site as well, that do not appear to be having the issue.
Any help, suggestions, or guidance is greatly appreciated!

Hello everyone,

I'm using a laptop (with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed) as a DVR and media streamer to all other devices in the house.
My TV recordings are recorded into a temporary folder and when the recording is finished the program moves the files into the My Videos folder.

The My Videos folder is shared so we can watch the recordings from the Xbox downstairs or other Windows 7 devices in the house.
This worked pretty well in the past but for some reason new recordings (or downloads) aren't shared by default anymore. All files have a small lock icon (shared with nobody) and I have to manually share new files within an already shared folder.

This is pretty annoying and takes away the convenience.

I would appreciate any tip to fix this problem to have all files in the shared folder(s) shared by default.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:New files aren't shared in shared folder

It's easy once you know how, just right click the C:/Video's folder and choose properties, Security tab then Advanced button, then just put a check mark where it says "Replace all Child Object Permission Entries with Inheritable Permissions Entries from this Object, then hit Apply, OK....this will fix the problem you described.

Hi, I'm currently running a home LAN at home (with a linksys wrt54gl router with dd-wrt) with 1 Vista PC and a laptop running XP. I can open the shared folders on my PC from my laptop and vice-versa. I recently set up a VPN(with my router, setting it as the PPTP server) and I can connect to my home LAN from school, I can browse the web through my home LAN and I can ping my Vista PC but I can no longer open the shared files on the Vista PC. If I try to open the shortcuts to the shared folders in My Network Connections from my laptop(same one I use at home) I get an error message saying I don't have permissions. My shared folders in the Vista PC have permissions given to &quot;All Users&quot; which is how I managed to get the shared folders visible from my XP laptop. Do I need to add another permission rule for the shared folder on the Vista PC? Might this have something to do with the internal LAN IP of my laptop? Thanks a lot in advance.

A LAN of 4 computers accesses ACT software. One computer is moved from one office to another and now no longer shares access to ACT with the other 3 computers. What could have caused this? Also several entries have been made in ACT on the computer that is not on the LAN and entries have been made in ACT that the other 3 computers access. Will these files merge once the fourth computer is on the LAN again?
 

Answer:not accessing shared file on LAN

make sure the computers are configured with the same IP addressing scheme and are on the same subnet. all the IP's should be the same except for the host portion:
192.168.100.x (where x is the host id and must be unique)

and make sure all the files you want available are shared.

I've lost most of my Saturday trying to figure out what happened here.

I had a perfectly working home network composed by a desktop (Windows 7 Professional x64) and a notebook (Windows 7 Home Premium x64) connected by the TP-LINK TL-WR941ND router. After I bought a new motherboard, something went wrong. It was a Abit IP35 before (Realtek NIC), and now it is a Asus P5Q (Atheros NIC). I made a clean install to change the motherboards using the latest drivers, and updated the router firmware and reconfigured it just in case, but the problem persists.

- The desktop enters the internet and the shared folders of the notebook, no problem at all.
- The notebook enters the internet normally, but gets an error 0x80070035 when I try to enter any of the desktop's folders, including the ones on the domestic group.
- When I try to reach the desktop through its IP on the start menu, I get an error...
- Pinging the IPs gives no errors, though.

I've read a bunch of threads about this sort of error, but none of those actually helped. Here's my ipconfig /all log:

So over the past few days, I've painstakingly setup a new Sandy Bridge PC just the way I like it and was preparing to transplant it into my existing system when I discovered I can't access any network shares! It worked fine when it was a completely clean install with just the driver loaded, ugh.

System A: DIY Sandy Bridge PC with Win7 x64 SP1.
System B: DIY Athlon 64 X2 PC with Win7 x86.
System C: Gateway Notebook with Win7 x86.

All systems are using MSE for AV, have the firewall and password protected sharing OFF. Network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing are on.

A gives me error code 0x80070035 (network path not found) when I try to acceses any shares on the network, even its own. A only sees B on the network, not C. B and C can access all shares, inlcuding A's shares. All the systems can ping each other.

I thought perhaps when I was setting up A that I disabled a service or feature that caused this, but I've set everything back to way it was and it still doesn't work. I've also tried a second NIC. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Error 0x80070035, can't access any shares

Hello there. First turn off your firewall and check if it's working. If its working that means that your firewall is not configured. Also try ping -ing the computers.

The network is configured as a peer-to-peer(no server logins are required). I have set up 4 shared folders on the Server.

Here's my problem: 6 PC's can access 2 of the 4 shared folders with only 1 PC being able to access all 4 folders on the server. When the 6 PC's try to access those 2 folders, I get an access denied error. what's interesting is that 1 PC is able to access, read, & write to all 4 folders while the other 6 can't access, read, or write to 2 of the folders. Since I have at least 1 PC that can access all 4 folders leads me to believe that the problem is not with the server but with the workstation PC's. The 1 PC that can access all 4 folders is running Windows XP Pro SP2

I would appreciate any help you can provide. By the way, this isn't the first time I've come across this problem.

I get a similar error message when trying to copy a file out of the shared drive onto Computer B.

I believe that this issue occurs when a file on the shared drive is opened and modified on Computer A. The office manager is the only person to use computer A 90% of the time so it isn't feasble for me to switch to that computer whenever this arises.

Hopefully some of you will be able to help me out.

HI

I have two networked computers belonging to the same workgroup: one with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit and the other with Windows XP Pro SP3.

On the XP computer, I shared a folder allowing only the access to the Administrators group.

Now, from Windows 7, I can see this shared folder, but when I try to use it, the no authorization message is displayed.

Why the Login window is not displayed?

THANKS

BYE

In the first image, you'll see the permissions of the shared folder on the XP computer:

Hello,

I am sharing a canon mf4350d printer installed on a vista home premium edition computer. I am trying to access it on an imac using osx 10.6.8. Below are the steps I have taken so far:

1. On vista machine in the control panel I have checked off the "share this printer" box in the printers properties.

2. In the registry of the Vista machine I have changed the value of lmcompatibilitylevel from 3 to 1 and then rebooted.

3. On the Imac in system preferences I opened "Print and Fax" and clicked "+" to add a printer.

4. I clicked on the "IP" button and set the "Protocol" to "Line Printer Daemon - LPD"; in the "Address" field I entered the IP address of the vista machine; In the "Print Using" I set to "Generic PCL Laser Printer".

When I try and print it can't connect to the printer and it does not print. Any help in solving this would be appreciated

Thanks!
 

Answer:accessing vista shared printer from mac

On the Vista did you turn on printer sharing? Did you configure any non-Windows firewall for the desired access?

Vista refuses to file share unless at least one user account is password protected. Don't know if that is needed for printer sharing.

Hi everyone,

I have connected the laptop and a desktop using a lan cable. Both the system are on Windows 7.

I shared a drive each on laptop and the desktop.

But when i try to access the drive from laptop to desktop (or vice versa) it gives the error (check screenshot for the error message)

I can see the drive but cannot access them. Although i can access the Public folder but not any other folder or drives.

Password sharing is off

What can be the issue?

Hi, We currently have a shared network drive in the office. I was just wondering if there was any way of accessing this drive and its folders form another location, ie. via an IP address?Kev

Answer:accessing shared drive out of the office

The only relatively secure way to do this is via a Virtual Private Network (VPN).You set up a VPN on the host (office) machine and then log into it via the Internet when needed. This is only likely to be satisfactory, if your office has a fixed IP address.

Hey everyone.

I use both Linux (Ubuntu 10.04, 2.6.33-AMD64) and Windows 7 professional, and sometimes I get a little boggled at the apparent lack of functionality in W7 in the following situation.

I have a network share in the root of my drive that I've called "DropBox" where my boss and I can both put files to be shared via the network. I have a bunch of files in "Downloads" directory that I'd like to be able to share at various times, but would rather not have my downloads directory directly shared as it violates my sense of order. IE, I would much rather have one shared folder from which you can reach all the other content I need to share on the drive, and if I need to un-share something, simply delete the shortcut, and Voila! instant anti-sharing.

Figure 1. Clean Sharing


In Ubuntu, you can create a symlink within a shared folder that points to a non shared folder which allows network users to access that non-shared folder.

Does this functionality exist in W7?

Thanks,
NYTCG

Answer:Shared Shortcut to non-shared folder.

Okay, so I solved this issue on my own =) TGFG! The answer lies in the MKLink command.

Specifically: mklink /D /J Downloads "C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\"

Works like a charm. All networked machines have access to my non-shared directory through the shared folder, and it looks nice and clean on the viewers end.

Thanks for letting me rubber duck this one.

I have been trying to solve this for hours on end, without success. I can share a folder via HomeGroup on my Windows 8 Professional x64 laptop and I am able to access the folder on my Windows 7 x86 Starter netbook, but not the other way round, meaning I get the same errorcode 0x80070035 each time I try to access the Windows 7 machine on the Windows 8 machine. I have enabled NetBIOS via TCP/IP on both machines, verified that the name of the workgroup is the same on both machines, tried to enable / disable password protected sharing, verified that services are running, rebooted both machines on several occasions, went out the door for a gasp of fresh air and still haven't been able to find the culprit.
There's no antivirus / firewall suite running on either machine (apart from Windows firewall). There is no router in between, just a normal switch. I am running Mouse without Borders (from Microsoft Garage) since Windows 8 has rendered Input Director useless, and I am able to move my mouse pointer across the screen of the Windows 8 machine using the touchpad of the Windows 7 machine (and I can even copy bits of text from the Windows 7 machine to the Windows 8 machine via the shared Windows clipboard) so it's not like everything gets blocked by the Windows 8 machine.

I'm moving Laptop can no longer access shared printer/files on home network here, simply because the issue is not printer related; it's network-related, and I wanted to get the problem updated under a better title.

In a nutshell:
Win7 laptop is connecting fine to internet via home wireless network
Same Win7 laptop cannot, however, access my Win7 desktop - the files, or more importantly for these purposes, the printer USB-connected to that computer and shared with users on the network
Attempts to access my PC from her laptop - whether clicking on its icon in the network view from her laptop, or specifying it by pathname (\\mywin7\), fail with
Error code 0x80070035
The network path was not found.
None of the following has fixed it:
Turning my firewall off completely
Stopping her AVG antivirus
Starting in safe mode and doing a Malwarebytes sweep
Using msconfig to do a selective boot with none of the services started
Mucking with the TCP/IP settings on either computer
Playing with the services on either computer
Specifying the printer path by IP address name
System restoring to an earlier point in time
From her computer I can ping mine by name and by IP address.
Every other computer in our house - XP ones and Win7 - can print to the printer connected to my computer, and every other computer has normal network access to my computer.

I'm not all that good with networking, but it seems that the device on your network that provides name resolution isn't working properly (since the IP address works, but the name doesn't).

Hello. I am new to this forum so please bear with me if I make a few mistakes. I have a problem that I have researched extensively online, but all the posts are quite old, so I will start a new one.
Basically, the situation is this: I have three computers on a Private home network ? one Toshiba laptop running Vista, one HP desktop running Vista, and one HP laptop running Windows 7 Professional. All three are running Norton Security Suite and the firewalls are configured identically. All computers are set up with Network Discovery On and Public File Sharing On. Password Protection is turned off since I have the same User account and password on all three machines. All three computers were on the network, could see each other on the Network map and could access the shared Public folders.
Then I was having some problems with the Toshiba booting slowly and some applications hanging on startup. So, I took it in to the Geek Squad for repair. They removed some viruses, cleaned the registry, and installed some unspecified updates. When I picked up the computer, most of the issues I was having were improved (although not completely eliminated). However, there was one significant problem that had been introduced. That problem is summarized below:

I have a small office that has a server, running Server 2008, that acts as a file server. There are several shares on the server that give access to our 5 users.

We have 5 workstations that all run Windows 7. Each workstation has the same 5 user accounts so any user can work on any of the 5 workstations.

This setup has been working perfectly for years. Now all of a sudden, one machine has starting giving the error 0x80070035 when trying to access the server shares. It can access any other workstation on the network, just not the server. It doesn't matter which of the 5 user accounts you log in as, you still receive this error.

I have two systems on the network: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (desktop - wired) and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (desktop - wired); using a Netgear N600 router. The Professional 64-bit I shall call "sys1" and the Home Premium 32-bit "sys2" for this thread.

sys1 has been in operation for some time, over a year, sys2 I just built and just now getting it up to speed. I have followed the Sharing Tutorial as well as other resources here and elsewhere but I cannot get sys1 to see any of the shared folders on sys2, but sys2 can see all the shared folders and resources on sys1. sys2 can see it's own shared folders and sys1 can see it's own shared folders as well. I have compared the Network and Sharing options on each system and they are identical making sure password was set to off on each. Neither system has the same users. NETBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled.

What I have tried:
- nbtstat -n shows both sys1 and sys2 are registered, (note: sys1 shows an extra line with "..__MSBROWSE--.<01> - not sure if that matters)

- disabled AVG anti-virus on both (no effect on problem)

well the first problem is that the semi colon is not supported with unc file name eg \\sharename

Literal IPv6 addresses in network resource identifiers
Since an IPv6 address contains colon (":") characters, network administrators must take care to avoid conflicts with other syntactic meanings of the colon in network resource labels. In IPv4 the colon is used to separate an IP address from a transport protocol port number. This usage has been extended to IPv6, however, when a port is specified in an address string, the proper IPv6 address must be enclosed in square brackets ("[", "]"). This convention is used in other more complex identifiers.
Example: In a URL the IPv6-Address is enclosed in brackets, e.g., http://[2001:0db8:85a3:08d3:1319:8a2e:0370:7348]/.
If the URL also contains a port number the notation is:
https://&#91;2001:0db8:85a3:08d3:1319:8a...7344]:443/This is not only useful but mandated when using shortform:
https://[2001:db8::1428:57ab]:443/Additional information can be found in "RFC 2732 - Format for Literal IPv6 Addresses in URL's" and "RFC 3986 - Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax."
In Microsoft Windows operating systems, IP addresses were also allowed in Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) path names. Since the colon is an illegal character in a UNC path name, the use of IPv6 addresses is also illegal in UNC names. For this reason, Microsoft has registered a second-level Internet domain, ipv...

Hello.

I have two pcs: an old desktop pc with windows xp and a notebook with windows 8.
Both computers are connected to the Internet through an adsl router and are also connected togheter, sharing files and folders through plain networking: HomeGroup would not work with windows xp.

Therefore, both computers are under the same workgroup, have different IP addresses and both share printers and folders.

I am able to log into my notebook [running windows 8] from my desktop pc [running windows xp] but not vice versa.

When my windows 8 machine prompts me for user name and password to log into my windows xp machine, my user name and password are not recognised.

I tried setting up the same user name with the same password on both machines, but whilst now I am able from my Windows XP machine to log directly into my Windows 8 machine, without entering user name and password, I am still receiving the 'The user name or password is incorrect' message from my windows 8 machine.

In both machine I installed Comodo Internet Security.
I set up Comodo Firewall in my Windows XP machine to receive Remote Desktop connections.
Now I am able to connect to my XP machine from my Windows 8 machine via Remote Desktop.
I am still unable to log into it from the Network folder, though.

Is there anyone who have any idea of how to procede?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:Problem of accessing to shared resources on a network

Turn off all firewalls and make sure the workgroup network is set to Private. Try to access the already shared folders such as All Users on XP and Public on W8. Once I get everything working normally with those, then I try sharing other folders.

When everything works the way you want, then is the time to try turning on security such as firewalls. I don't know how many times I set a firewall to settings that always worked before, but I could do nothing until I disabled it altogether.

All,

I currently have a workgroup set up with a server (running Server 2008) and 4 identical (literally) computers. Each computer has certain shared files. There is no problem seeing or accessing the files on these computers.

I am trying to add a fifth computer to the workgroup. I have added the new computer and can see the other 4 computers. However, every time I try to access any of the other 4 computers on the workgroup, I am asked for my network username and password. It doesn't matter what I put for the username and password - nothing works. It continues to say "Logon failure: unknown username or bad password".

Any assistance to get around this issue would be appreciated.

Answer:Accessing Workgroup Computer Shared Files

Are the time/date settings set correctly on this new machine? You might want to check the bios clock on the new machine as well.

Does this machine have it's own PC name which is different than the other machines in your LAN?
