Windows Server 2008R2 Service Access

Posted on 2011-10-17

I am having problems accessing a service that is installed on a Windows 2008R2 machine. The program that uses the service works fine locally but I cannot use it with a computer on the Network. Tried enabling/disabling services with different combinations and I cannot get it to work. Not familiar with 2008 security policies. Please help.

    Firewall is off.. everything is off so I believe it has something to do with the fact that this particular piece of software uses a usb dongle. Does anyone know how to allow access to the USB port in Win2k8r2?  I guess by default it's locked down.

    your best bet is to ask the vendor, they exactly will tell you how to make it work.
    I used to have a same kind of software & generally it's the USB needs a special software to be accessed, there was nothing to do with server side as these are special kind of USB's
