sharing C drive of one computer on the network

Q: sharing C drive of one computer on the network

Ok, i really need help fast!. My friends computers need to be reformatted, but i have to back up 30GIGs of info onto my hard drive, so i hooked his computer onto my network. I know the connction is good cause he gets internet now. My two computers at home have windows xp PRO and i have unchecked "use simple file sharing' on both so that i can access each computer's C drive entirely from the other computer (with full access).

Ok, so I try to map my friends C drive as a network drive, I can get it to connect with \\workgroup\Owner\c$ (where Owner is the username). The problem is when the password box pops up, it has the username as \\workgroup\\Guest, even though guest account is turned off (and when i turn it on this doesnt work at all). I can't even get int o guest, what I need is the files on the OWNER account. I think this may be because I cant turn off SIMPLE FILE SHARING on my friends computer. he has WIN XP HOME. I looked in tools, folder options, but this option is not there for some reason. Lol did dell take it out somehow or something??

So now I look at my workgroups computer on MSHOME, and I do see his computer. I go to his computer, right click C drive, go to sharing, and share his entire C drive. Ok so now i double click on his computer in workgroup computers, VOILA I SEE HIS C DRIVE. So i go in, go to documents and settings, go to "owner", and i get an error saying i do not have permission to access this resource.
Like what the hell can i do??? I just need to backup a lot of stuff on the Owner account, but I cant get access to it. Hes coming over today, appreciate if i can get a quick solution , thanks!

Hi

I have not been able to share the C: Drive across the network on the Win 7 PC, but I use to able to. The C: Drive has the same permission rights as the D: Drive I can share across the network.

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

What group/accounts have you got in the Permission tab? Everyone, and the accountname you log on to the machine with?

On the other machine, type \\ipaddress in Start > search box and see how you do.

I am trying to share the cd drive on my desktop over my wireless network so I can install sotfware on my laptop that does not have a cd drive. I have tried going to the properties of the cd drive, and enabling sharing there, with no luck. I have also tried mapping a network drive on the laptop, by inputing the address shown for the cd drive on the desktop, which is \\Desktop\e, but it fails to find the drive. If I try to browse for an address to map a network drive, the laptop does not find my desktop or the cd drive. For that mater, when I go to Network places on either computer, neither of the computers see each other. My desktop is running Windows Vista, and the laptop XP, which may be what is causing the problem.

And by the way, I have tried using google to find a method


Anyway, thanks in advance for any help.
 

A:Sharing CD drive over network

Do you have a workgroup setup? That's probably what you're missing.
Once you do that, the computers should be able to see each other, by default, when you click on the other pc's drive, you will only see the basic properties dialogue. If you set cd drive to share already, it will be accessible.
Let me know how you do

Hi everybody,
I have a drive on my main PC (D:\) which contains all my videos and music. I would like to be able to share this drive with my laptop so I can watch movies on my laptop without messing around with USB drives, but I can't find a clear guide anywhere. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
Cheers

A:Sharing a drive over a network

\\computername\d$ would be the share name, but this is for administrative purposes.

Is your Media organised into folders?
It would be better and more secure to share the folders you need access to rather than the entire drive.

To browse a share by UNC path you could type the UNC Path into your address bar of any explorer window, e.g. \\computername\sharename

If you want to see a list of the folders the remote computer is sharing just browse to \\computername

If you wish to map a network drive to the share Right Click the Computer icon and from the menu select Map Network Drive
In the window that pops up, select an available drive letter and then type in the UNC path of the share you wish to connect to.

Hope that helps

I'm trying to share an external USB hard drive on our home wireless network, but I want only certain people on the network to be able to use the hard drive (ideally, only two users to even see it, if possible)

My desktop computer on my wireless network has Windows 7 professional, and the computer which the external USB hard drive is connected to has Windows XP professional. We're connected via wireless router

I'm following this guide here

Windows XP: The Complete Reference: Sharing Drives and Printers on a LAN

The external hard drive is an NTFS hard drive, and under the security tab under the hard drive's properties I have

1. Creator Owner
2. Everyone
3. System

Under properties if I right click the hard drive, under the security tab, if I click the advanced button and the owner tab, it shows me the name of my computer, which is exactly the same as what it says it is under my router settings. The two computers I want to share the hard drive with are, under my router settings

1. sean-929d03249c- the laptop and
2. Sean-PC-Desktop

with two different IP addresses. But, it doesn't appear there's anywhere in windows that will let me specify which other computers I want to share it with. I don't want my desktop to be the owner, just be able to use the hard drive and see it in windows, just as if I had it connected to that computer.

A:Sharing a drive on a network help

Right click the HDD/Properties/Security/Edit/Add the users you want to be able to share this drive with. If you want them to edit the files, choose Full control or Modify. Add the users you do not want to access this drive and choose Deny Full Control. they will see the drive but not be able to access it.

I am running a desktop with XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 3 and a netbook with XP Home Edition Service Pack 3. I am having trouble sharing the desktop's CD drive over my wireless network. I think everything is basically set up right, i.e. both are in the same Workgroup, I am using the same username/password on both machines, etc. I am able to share other files successfully, just not the CD drive. The drive appears in the Network Places of the netbook, but when I click it I get the following message:

"\\Jessica\E 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 permissions.

Access is denied."

I feel like I have tried everything. Some steps I have taken, to no avail:

-setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa -> restrictanonymous to 0
-setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon -> AllocateCDRoms and AllocateFloppies to 0
-enabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP
-creating a Guest account and setting Guest permissions to allow access

Any thoughts? Thanks!!

I have a simple problem with my network that's proving very difficult to solve.

I want to add a 320 GB hard drive and a 500 GB hard drive to my network. They are both USB (normal enclosures, nothing fancy) and both work great when they are plugged directly into my PC.

When they are shared on my network (hand holding the folder, folder showing up in My Network Places) and I try to access them, it gives me an error "Not enough server storage to process this command". The two popular solutions to this problem are A) increase the IRP stack size by 3 and keep going until it works and B) decrease the Paged Poolsize to 0. On both my machines, the IRP stack size is maximum (50) and the Poolsize is 0.

However, it is still not working for me, same error on both drives.

My PC's are both running XP Home over a Linksys WRT54GL router. Every other shared folder works like great. I just cannot get these hard drives to share.

I have never installed Norton (usually what causes the settings to be changed). I am running AVG Free on both computers for anti-virus and Zone Alarm for a firewall (both set to trusted zone on medium, which allows sharing.)

The desktop which my hard drives are connected to is connected via Ethernet, and the laptop which I'm trying to access the drives is connected via wirless G.

If you need any more info, I'll be happy to provide.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Guys,
I shared a drive on my home network. It works fine, but now I want to rename it. When I go to the sharing tab and try to rename it, it won't let me. I tried in "My Computer" and "Explorer" (anywhere I could access the drive). It looks like I can change it in "Network Places", but not sure if I should. I can check the box "allow other users to change my files".

Hi everyone! First post, let's go!

I am trying to find a solution to transferring large files (100+GB) between myself and a client of mine at a different location through the internet. The easiest one I have found was through a Private Network through Logmein's Hamachi, as you can browse other connected computers' files through this network.

Of course, to show the shared drives by the host computer, you need to input a username and password through the UAC. Obviously, if I insert my own username and password, I can see the folders I've shared. However, how do I configure a username/password for my client? Are these users the same as local users? I would like to avoid having to make a local user for him on my own computer.

Just for reference, I have no control over my network I am connected to, so no FTP, no port forwarding etc.
OS: Windows 8.1

Thanks for any help in advance!

I have a desktop Windows XP home computer wired and a Windows Vista Home Premium (64bit) that I have set up a wireless network for following the directions I found on the Microsoft web site. I have successfully printed from the Vista notebook on the printer connected to the XP machine with out a problem. I can access the shared files on the XP?s C:\ drive from the Vista laptop. On the Vista network I can see the XP computer and after double clicking on it I can see the icon for the external USB hard drives but when I try to access them I get an error that I might not have permissions to use the network resource and not enough server storage is available to process this command. On the USB drives the Network sharing is set to share on the network and allow network users to change the files.

I find it odd that I can both print and share files on the C;\ drive but cannot access the external USB drives. Is there a fix for this?

A:Home network not sharing folders with one computer.

I had the same problem, kept trying to figure out why. 24 hours later it just worked. Someone with more knowledge might know the answer, for me it just needed time.

Check this too:

HomeGroup uses IPv6 for multicast discovery. If you get error code 0x80632094 when you try and enter a valid password, then check that the IPv6 protocol is checked in the NIC properties. Network and Sharing Center, Change adapter connections, right-click and examine Properties for IPv6. You could also try this registry method:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\

Add a DWORD, DisabledComponents with a value 0xffffffff, this disables all IPv6 components. Restart the computer now edit 0xffffffff to 0. This enables IPv6.

Turning off Network discovery should prevent the other machines from seeing those machines on the network.

If you only want one file shared on one of the Homegroup machines then turn off Network discovery on all the other machines then for each folder you need to hide choose "Share With" then "Stop Sharing".

have you ever tried this on your windows explorer?
\\Machine Name\username\volume$
after this windows will ask for username and password. and guess what? you might get "access denied" error.
this is because you are using your Microsoft account to login to the windows. you need to have a local account to do this.

-The problem with sharing a drive/s on a computer is, everyone on your network will have access to that drive just by typing the "\\Machine Name" in windows explorer.
-but there is a problem with local accounts! still everyone on the network can have access to that specific machine by typing \\machine Name\username\Volume$

So now we have a computer that uses Microsoft account(lets call it the Server Machine) to login to the windows and we want only specific users(lets call them Client Machines) on the network to have access to its hard drive while other users can only have access to \\Machine Name\share folder
here is what you have to do :

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.

Hello,

I am currently living in a college dorm and my only source of internet is their registration-protected wifi. The problem is that I cannot install my printer on their wi-fi network and share information between all of my devices.

So, what I would like to be able to do is connect my mac desktop to their wi-fi (I've got that done), and then share the mac desktop's internet connection with my Airport Express router via ethernet. The Airport Express would then broadcast the internet connection to my other devices. I understand how to activate internet sharing on my mac, but I really need help configuring the ethernet port's IP, the Airport Express' settings, DHCP and DNS stuff, etc.

Thank you so much in advance!

I have a linksys usb600n (v2) using the Win7 driver from linksys. It installs and is displayed correctly in Device Manger - BUT it doesn't appear in the Network and Sharing Center as an adapter. This same device and driver were previously working just fine in this system - but I rebuilt the OS (clean install) after testing a number of security products out.

The initial install went fine - no problems that I remember - just plug in the adapter and install the drivers obtained from Linksys (Ver 3.00.01.0). I tried the same thing on the re-build and it looks fine until I go into the Network Center and can't set up wireless networking since the adapter does not appear.

SIW shows TWO (2) linksys USB adapters under Hardware/Network Adapters, but does not show the network adapters in the Network Information section.

Any ideas?

Hi dhartmann. Welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

It would seem that your computer is confused!! I would suggest, while the usb adapter is plugged in, you remove all drivers in "Device manager". Then unplug the usb adapter and reboot the computer. After Windows has loaded, check "Device manager" again for any remnants of usb adapter drivers. If it is clean, plug the adapter in again so that the usb driver can install again but this time with only one instance. That should un-confuse your computer and allow the adapter to appear in network adapte... Read more

I have windows 7 Ultimate installed (was originally installed as a clean install) and have ever since it was RTM. Everything has been running flawlessly and still is except for one thing. My network cards don't show up under Network and Sharing Center, but they do show normally under device manager and my network connection is rock solid. Currenly I'm plugged into a 10/100mb At&t U-Verse Residential Gateway (router). Because of this I can't manage either of my NICs and I can't join my homegroup.

The NICs are intergrated into the motherboard. The NICs are Nvidia nForce adapters.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? Or at least know where I can go to figure this out?

Thank you!!

Hi all, I have reset the router, reset the USB drive thats plugged into the router, rebooted the computers and still nothing. I made sure the workgroup name is the same on all computers, both are listed as home networks too.

I have an asus ac68u router with a seagate 3TB external 3.0 drive plugged into the router.

My one windows 7 professional service pack 1 computer (ethernet connected) when I right click on (NETWORK) in a windows explorer window I can click on map network drive. I browse the folder option and I can see:

RT-AC68U in my list to select and map
along with the computer I am on is in the list too
AND I can see the other computer that wont map anything thats described below in this list.

Everything works fine on this first computer. I can access all the files on the seagate with no problems what so ever. I mapped the seagate usb drive as z:

On my second computer with windows 7 professional service pack 1 (ethernet connected) when I right click on network I can see only the one computer above that sees everything.

I checked all the advanced share settings on the second computer and they are identical to the first one that works.

A side note: I also have a windows 8 laptop that can't see the seagate as a mappable drive but it does show up under the my pc list in windows explorer. I cant map it though there either.

I'm baffled as to to why my one computer works fine and the other does not. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I have a BT modem which incorporates a wireless modem and 4 switches for hardwiring via ethernet.

I have had to set up a long ethernet cable because the wireless signal does not reach. The ethernet cable is less than 100 m. (About 30m).

I know that the ethernet cable works properly. I know that the modem receives the internet becasue I can connect to it wirelessly via another computer (laptop).

I also know that the wireless modem requires a password.

When I connect with the ethernet cable and bring up 'Network and Sharing Centre'. I find that I get 'Unidentified Network' (Public Network). When I try repairing with Windows Network Diagnostics this does not solve the problem.

Any ideas?

Nevica

A:'Unidentified Network' in Network and Sharing Centre

If you are trying to setup a Wireless connection then the logon name and password must be EXACTLY the same as the original setup.
If you can position the receiver( the comp) close to the sender( router/modem) then when it is up and running you will be able to see how strong the signal is. Then when you move the comp to where it is going to be used you will see how much drop off you are getting. If you are getting substantial drop of in signal strength then look around for how to improve the signal .
NB. Signal strength can be affected by moving the Modem as little as 25mm.

I have created a network with several computers. The " server" is really not a server but rather another work station that doesn't get any normal use except storing data. Anywho, I get an error message every so often on the computers that connect to this "server" that they need to put in a password and user name. So I set up different users on the "server" but it keeps expiring there username and passwords.

Oh, by the way on all the regular work stations, we are running windows xp and on the "server" it is windows 2000 professional.

So anyways it keeps expiring the password. I even went to my "server" control panel/users/ and clicked on the box that says require a password to connect to this computer.

I need advice on 2 things

1. How can I set up passwords that dont expire

2. Or how can I make so no passwords are needed?

Thanks

A:Connecting to another computer through network drive

Right click on My Computer, Manage, Local Users & Groups, Users. Pick the user and you can set the password to never expire. I don't recommend going without passwords, because some things like scheduled tasks don't run without passwords.

A:reconnecting to a network drive after changing computer ip address

You'd connect to it the same way as before. Changing a computer's IP address shouldn't prevent you from connecting to a network share unless you gave the computer an IP address on a different range, in which case you'd need to change that devices IP address to match the new network IP scheme. Can you clarify what you did and what IP addresses the network device and the computer have?

I can see the share on my xphome computer. I only have one administrator password on the 98se computer. I remember this happening when I tried to share the c drive on two xphome computers a while back. Any folders that I shared individually I could access ok. but if i shared the entire drive I was promted for a password as well, in which the admin passwords didnt work. Is there somekind of default password? Ive tried no password also....and no luck. thks

I did assign a new password for the c drive when i initially set up file sharing. Windows 98 has an 8 character limitation for its file sharing passwords. When I tried to access the files when xp promted me for a password i used what i thought was a 10 character password (my usual password) when if fact i should have just typed in the first 8 characters of my password instead of the full 10 characters. I recognized this when I only saw xxxxxxxx(eight characters) when I went into properties-sharing (option) on my 98se computer.

Cool.

Hi,

Sorry for my bad english but I will try to to my best.

I have another computer that have a shared drive for my multimedia file (like my mp3 and my movie) and in Vista, i have enable a drive (R:\) that connect to my PC \\PC\Multimedia

But the problem is when i'm booting in vista, my computer tell me that he cannot connect all the network drive... but I can go in the folder and play my mp3

It's like Vista try to connect my network drive before that my wireless connection is enable.

what can i do?

A:Weird thing when i'm booting and load my network computer drive

Yes, Vista tries to reconnect before the wireless connection is effective and therefore you receive a warning message at logon.
It doesn't affect the mapping as Vista tries and tries until it gets the connection.
To avoid the "message", you can write a small batch file (net use) and add it in the user group policy or ask to logon when the network connection is established.
Personally i don't see the real interest except loosing time when booting.

Hi! I have this kind of problem:
I bought a new desktop computer with Windows 7 Home Premium. I get internet connection with a 3G USB stick and it's working fine. Now I need to share this connection to my laptop with Windows Vista. I'm using a Tenda twl542r+ router to do that. I've configured everything to work fine when I connect the laptop to the desktop comp with ethernet cable, so I can get online with the laptop through the desktop comp this way. But when I use the same cable to connect the desktop comp to the router and try to get a wireless connection from the laptop it doesn't work anymore.

My network connection properties are like this:
The 3G modem properties, network tab: using only TCP/IPv4. sharing tab: selected the Allow other network users to connect through this computerís Internet connection and Enable on-demand dialing.
The network adapter's TCP/IPv4 properties which shares the connection:
ip address: 192.168.137.1
network mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: empty
primary dns: empty
secondary dns: empty

And on the laptop's wireless network adapter's TCP/IPv4 properties are to Obtain an IP address automatically.

So what I'm doing wrong in here? Maybe the router settings? I have tried to change those though but without any luck.

Thanks in advance,
Sam
 

A:Sharing 3G network

My guess is that you do not have the router connected and configured properly. Short story is to connect only to its LAN ports and disable its Dhcp server. Complete procedure follows.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cr... Read more

The ip address is 192.168.1.1 and all users have ip addresses running from .100 to .109 with most computers connected both wirelessly and wired.
I've just added a VISTA Home computer to the network. For some reason I can ping the vista computer, I can see it but i can't access it. I've turned off all Firewalls, all Virus protection, all password protection, I've enabled the sharing of the documents and the printers without any requirements.
I don't understand why I can't access the resources... does anyone have any ideas?
All computers are updated and the firmware on the router is the most updated. I chatted with Linksys and they said it should work.

A:Network Sharing

You would need to enter a user account info from the Vista machine (either the account you use all the time, or the administrator account). To avoid that, you could map a network drive to the vista computer shared folders. (open cmd prompt and type)
Code:
net use [driveletter of your choice that is not being used e.g. h:\] [\\Vista machine name, or ip address\shared folder name]
Alternatively, you could right click My Computer and select "Map a network drive" for a GUI of the same process.

A:network sharing

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

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.

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.

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

When I first had it setup, I remember any computer trying to access it require a password (credential) like this. And all the computers I did try to access the server had the "Remember my credentials" unchecked.

However now seems any computers as long as it gets connected in our office network can access it without credential anymore.

I have checked all these computers' credential manager, and there is no saved credential at all.

You didn't do anything wrong.

The problem is that once a machine as been accessed using credentials, Windows tends to remember those credentials so you don't have to type them in the next time. I believe there is a local security policy where you can change this behavior so it requires a user name and password to be typed in each time.

There are other ways to share with only certain Users but it involves setting up a Homegroup.

Hello. I am unable to connect to my desktop's shared folders, and get the message "network path not found" when attempting to go into the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router wirelessly, a pace 2wire gateway, and wirelessly on the laptop. I can see it in the list of devices connected to the gateway, as well as the network folder. I am unable to ping my desktop from the laptop, but i can do so the other way around (desktop can ping my laptop). This is despite turning off windows firewall on the desktop. This started happening right when i got the SP2 upgrade for the desktop, it's a vista system. The laptop is a windows 7 computer. Prior to this, my laptop could access the public folder without a problem on the desktop. My android tablet could as well. Now it can't. With the firewall off, I still can't access it. The desktop can access everything on my laptop. It can access all files on it. I have heard that fixing the ping issue is the very first issue that must be addressed. Any ideas?

This really isn't so much a question about the router. I am currently at school running off their LAN line; I’m taking that line and running it into a router to split the connection. If I share folders they can only be seen by those connected to the router unless I was to plug directly into the schools LAN and share that way. Is there any way I can in a way bypass the router so sharing on the schools LAN is still enabled?

To clear anything up, I want to share on the schools lan while keeping my PC's plugged into the router without having to connect them directly.

We have 3 computers (two with Win98 & 1 with Win2K) and just purchased a 4th unit (Gateway Pen4 2gig) with Windows 2000. We have all hocked up to a network but the new system will not share with the other Win98 computers. From the new system we can see all the other computers so the network is fine, and the other Win2K can share with the new computer as well but not the Win98's. Instead of asking for a logon and password like the Win2K unit the Win98's get a "Enter Network Password" window that has a Resource:\\PC$ and asks for a Password. We have set up everything under the sharing with the new computer but the 98's cannot get past the "Enter Network Password" window.

Can anyone help,,, Please

Hello Mega99, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

In my home network, I have three Windows 7s, a couple of XPs, a couple of Ubuntus, and two printers happily co-existing.

Since the Vista and XP computers cannot use Windows 7's HomeGroup, you will have to add 7 to your Workgroup. In Windows 7 you might as well remove any traces of HomeGroup and disable IPV6: Start here by leaving and removing HomeGroup

Then look at this MS link: if your computer does not have this reg entry, add it with the "dword 0xffffffff" as instructed to disable IPV6 How to disable certain Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) components in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008

Next have your Windows 7 computer join your Workgroup:

To share files between computers you will have to select or create folders, open their properties and "share" with "Everyone".

On an old computer running XP, I have designated the entire C: drive as being shared. It is "seen" by my other computer running Win 7, and when I doubleclick on the network C: drive, all of its subfolders and files open and are shown by Explorer, as usual. However, when I try to view any of the subfolders, I get an "access not allowed" message.

This is a private network, accessible by me, the administrator. How can I fix this? I was of the understanding that if the root directory was shared, that all of the subdirectories would be shared as well.

Thanks in advance.

A:Network sharing

It's generally bad practice to share the system drive. For one thing the XP All Users folder is already shared by default. Also attempts at modifying system files on the XP machine would likely trigger "file is already in use by another process" errors.

I usually get everything working copying files between the already shared folders. When that works as expected I share other folders. If I want to share the entire drive, say a USB external, I make a folder that contains all other folders, then share it.

ok heres my situation, there is a main desktop pc with a printer and internet/router connected directly to it and there is also another desktop and a laptop. the main pc can access internet print and access shared files from the other desktop but not the laptop. The secondary desktop can access internet, print from the shared printer and shre files FROM that computer to the main one, but not access files on the laptop or the main desktop. The laptop can access internet, but no printer or file sharing at all. So id like to get all the sharing up and running.
Thanks alot

Hello and Happy Holidays to Everyone,

My daughter recently won a MSI- Windows 7 Starter Netbook from her school. I got it to connect to my network and surfing the net is fine. I have three computers also on the network which are XP versions, my desktop is the main server and two other netbooks that are xp as well for my other 2 daughters. I'm trying to get the Window 7 to see the other comps., but its not bringing them up when I click the "search" link under network/sharing center.

The strangest thing is that I was able to share the printer I have on the network. It sees that. But it did not pull up the printer when I did the search. I had to actually put in the address and printer name, then it worked fine. I have two folders that I share on the network, it won't bring them up in the network group or places. Like I said the strangest thing is that when I first got it and did all the network stuff without actually reading about Windows 7, everything worked. I could see everything on the network status window. NOW, I don't know what happen. I've been trying and can't get it to work.

Can anyone show me the steps on how to properly network windows 7 starter to the other three XP computers?

Thank you.

I have a computer, which I was recently forced to format and reinstall windows on. Now, though, I can't share my computer on the network. I can access the network, I am logged on to the network. I vaguely remember there be something else I had to do, but I cannot remember it. I put my computer in the domain, gave it a unique name, but when I right click a folder to share it, the option simply never appears.
 

A:Sharing on a Network

Have you enabled File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Networks?

depends on what Operating System on how to get to your Network Properties, but if you have it, it will show up in the components box of the Network Properties window.

Win 2000, tight Click your My Network Places on the desktop, then right-click your network and select Properties. If you don't see it, click Install, select Service and click Add, then select File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Networks and continue on.

If Win 98, then go to Start, settings, Control Panel, Network, and click the File and Print sharing button, checkmark both options that appear and click OK.

In both PC's Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Advanced settings: Turn on File and Printer sharing and Network discovery, Turn off password protected sharing.

It's easiest to just knit them together using Homegroup password from one PC, then rightclick every folder you want shared to Share with Homegroup. Homegroup - Add Computer or Join - Windows 7 Help Forums

To do this only via Network sharing, you'll need to rightclick the folder to Share with Specific People or Everyone, choosing Read or Read/Write permissions.

Recently I purchased a new Desktop, running W7 HP 64bit.
I have an external hard drive plugged into that desktop and I want to share the files on it across the network, primarily to my laptop using the same version of windows.

I have the same work group for both, same network and neither computer shows up on each others' network locations.

Though for both my xbox 360, when on does show up on both.

Im not running any third party firewalls.
Network sharing and discovery are both on.

I've also tried using the homegroup feature with no luck on either end.
Something is blocking both or one the computers to communicate (probably the new one)
I used to run workgroup with my previous desktop running xp, and it worked fine.

Help, solutions, suggestions?
Thanks

My company would benefit from sharing a fax modem over the network and used winfax pro for a while although it rarely worked. After getting new systems with XP Home SP2 the program quit working all together. After looking through some other forums I found that everyone had this problem with winfax. It was no surprise to me then when Symentec quit making winfax. So we are looking for another solution.
I tried a few other programs from independent programers but that all had similar issues with Sp2, one even said it would only work with winfax installed. I then found a hardware solution at blackbox but it would cost us a few thousand dollars to implement. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me of a way to make this happen. All computers are Dell XP Home SP2 systems and only one has an internal modem. They are already networked, I just need a way to fax through them.

My parents have recently bought a new HP Touchsmart and I was finally glad they did so. Now I could free up space on my pc and also be able to play around with a new pc.
I got this bright idea that I would setup a personal network of sorts and would be able to freely transfer files from one pc to the other over the wireless network (instead of constantly moving around an External HDD) Thinking with vista that it would be somewhat easy to setup and use. Well surprise surprise that blew up in my face.
After wasting nearly 10hrs total of scouring every nook and cranny that is the internet I found many answers but no solution would work for me. I have two distinct problems atmo:
1. after sharing a folder on one pc I am unable to access it and I get the error of incorrect file path/denied access upon trying to diagnose the problem. On some files I am able to view 1 or 2 folders deeper but eventually ends up with the same problem.
2. When I am able to transfer files it gets as slow as 64 KB/s (Bytes not bits) when it should be at least 5MB/s since the wireless says it is capable of 50Mb/s
Solutions I've tried:
1. I have tried disabling the windows Firewall and also changed password protected file sharing to off. Also applying the user Everyone with full control of the files in question, ensuring both pc's are on the same workgroup.
2. I have disabled "Remote Differential Compression" to no change in speed. Though I noticed while transferring photos(6GB worth) the transfe... Read more

Try booting these machines to [safe mode + net] and testing from there. If it's still the same thing, get yourself a crossover ethernet cable and monitor the transfer speeds when the wireless infrastructure is bypassed (wireless is frequently Teh Suck).

The Client is only needed if you're on a network.
QoS is only useful on large networks.
Link Layers are only needed if you're going to be connecting to non-Windows 7 computers.
IPv6 can be left checked if you like, but I don't think it's being used at the moment.
