I have a notebook computer that refuses to allow any other workgroup members to share/access/see its files.  All macines including the laptop are set for file and printer sharing.  The machines are all in the same workgroup (called "WORKGROUP") and I can see an icon for the laptop on the screen of the other computers.  When I ask the Laptop to show me a list of workgroup computers, i get the message:

"Workgroup is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to see if you have access permissions.

The list of servers is not currently accessible."

Conversely, when I try from one of the other workgroup computers to see the laptop, I get:

"\\Laptop is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to see if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found."

I also have a printer conected to the laptop, and I set it for sharing.  When I try to Add the Priner from one of the other machines, I tell them to browse for a printer, at which point I can see the Laptop mentioned in the list, but no associated printer is shown.

This exact same scenario has happend on two otherwise-normal networks. The laptop is shunned as a sharing partner.

This question is pretty urgent.

Hello, I have a win2000 domain controller with sql2000 on it, and an XP pro machine with sql 7.0 desktop edition on it with a database I want to copy. Now I'm trying to use copy database wizard to do this, but everytime I try I get an error: "Windows cannot create the share OMWWIZC". PLEASE do not post the same link to Microsoft's support site, I've read it an innumerable amount of times, and it gives me no clues. I have logged on to both sql servers using local accounts that mirrored the sql account "sa", I have tried using the local system account, to which it tells me I have to add permission to send files over the network to my account to go any further. I am lost, utterly confused as I know nothing about SQL and ODBC. any help?

i followed some of the infomation here to resolve some replication issues,

http://eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1311&eventno=524&source=NTDS%20KCC&phase=1

i specifically did this,

Imran Hashim (Last update 5/9/2005):
This event sometime occurs in an environment with large number of sites and domain controllers when connectivity to one or more sites is lost. ISTG tries to reach that site through alternate routes available and creates new connections for this purpose. By design in Windows 2003, these connections should be deleted automatically when original connectivity is restored, but in Windows 2000 these links are not deleted. You have to go to NTDS Settings of all the servers in affected site and delete all connections, and initiate "Check Replication Topology". ISTG will create all the links from scratch for all of these servers and problem will disappear.

but now i cannot get anything working on this DC.  DNS stopped running, i cannot get back into sites and services and i am getting a bunch of errors.  

is there something i can do to revert back?

please help!!

I have a small network running Small Business Server 2003 with a few client pc's. The clients are all XP with SP2 installed. One of the pc's keeps dropping and then reconnecting the network connection every now and again.

It seems to be only this one pc with the problem as I have tried accessing the same shared files on the server from  other pc's without trouble. I have changed the network card and ethernet cable and have reinstalled the networking software without success..

The only clue I have is that the onboard ethernet connection on the Elite Nforce4 board recently stopped working and I replaced it with a pci card. I got the problem soon after. I have tried various ethernet cards without any change.

I am using the latest motherboard bios and drivers.

Do you think the motherboard has a fault?

Hi,

I´ve got a  problem with printing from a windows 2003 r2 machine.

ive got 2 printers installed and shared for network users to print to my problem is that
the client machines lose the connection after a while the strange thing in my opinion is
that it works when people login and then suddenly it seems like the connection to the
printershare / server is dropped if people then logout and in again the connection is restored
and they can print again.

Info:
Client machines are winxp sp2 / DC is a server 2003 R2 / file and print is a server 2003 R2
All machines are in the same domain and on the same network segment.
The DC works as a printserver for another part of the office as well.

Hope you can help me

Best regards

Hi, I setup a WRT54G wireless router for a client, and it worked fine for 3 weeks, until yesterday.  It would drop the internet connection about every 8 hours.  I replaced the router, assuming that was what the problem was with.  This did not helpl at all.  It still does the same thing.  If you plug the computer directly into the cable modem it still works there, so it seems like the cable modem is the problem.  A restart of the router cause it to come back again, but nobody wants to restart their router twice a day!
   Thanks in advance!

Any WatchGuard experts?

I've opened up a remote VPN IP address to my local IP, and I can connect OK with the Nortel Contivity client. However i'm getting booted out every few mins with an error:
The routing table cannot be alterned after VPN connection has been established”.

Checked the VPN connection outside the firewall and its OK.
Any ideas

500 points up for grabs!

We have purchased 6 servers...

3 are for the local network
3 are for a remote segment of the network..(redundant - exact duplicat of the 3 local)

this arrangement is designed for a super redundancy system..

the 3 remote servers are planned to be identical 'live' servers in case the building we are in falls down, fire, etc...

THE question is, What is the best method for creating the redundant servers at the remote location..and also maintaining that exact duplicat state..?

thanks

I have a machine that is running Windows XP Home Edition SP2.  The computer is directly connected to a cable modem.  The main problem is that this computer will stop working on the internet until the network connection is repaired.  This can last a couple hours, or a couple minutes.  Repairing the network connection always seems to fix the problem.  I know that it is probably not the cable modem, because if i directly connect my laptop to it, it doesn't have the same issue.

Any ideas?

When I am "Exploring" the folders through my network, (The screen with "Folders" on the left and "Files" to the right, the left panel constantly refreshes itself and since the network gets slow during the day, sometimes this is a pain.

This is a two part question..

1) Is there a way to stop it from automatically refreshing?

2) Why does the network get so slow during the day within the network?
We're going through hubs so it shouldn't be a problem. Is there a way to make it more efficient througout the day? It's inconsistent, during miday it will be sometimes fast and sometimes slow.

I'm trying to add an access-list item to my cicso pix firewall so I can accept ftp traffic to a server.
Here's what I'm doing

enter username
enter password
enable
enter password
conf t
access-list outside_acl permit tcp any host 70.69.184.115 255.255.255.255 0 0 ftp

I then get error "ERROR: extra command argument(s)"

I've also tried access-list outside_acl permit tcp any host 70.69.184.115 255.255.255.255 ftp

but get the same error.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or what it is I need to do?

I have an ADSL connection through my GlobeSpan modem (my OS is Windows XP Home). I share this connection by Internet Connection Sharing to others PCs of my office. I would like to configure port fowarding so that I can connect to my PC (that is not the one directly connected to the internet) by using RealVNC (or TightVNC). Please tell me how can I do that.

Hi,
There is a specific website that my client can not browse to.  The website is www.goldenone.com
There are approximately 15 computers behind a pix firewall and a cisco 2524 router and none of the computers including the domain controller and mail server can go to this site.
If I do nslookup I get:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup www.goldenone.com
Server:  srv1.fakedomain.com
Address:  172.22.10.20

Non-authoritative answer:

If I put the IP address into the browser, I still get timed out.
I have tried putting 4.2.2.2 into one of the workstations as dns server and still can not go to sit.
Is it possible that they are blocking our IP?
Is there a way to tell if a website is blocking your IP?
Thanks,

Ok....here is the complete story.

 About a month ago we got a call from a client (Opthamologist) that all we do for them is keep 2 Laptop computers with Win Pro connnected wireless and clean.  The rest of their office is some sort of Unix based network....with about 15 workstations and under service contract with another vendor. It seems one of their computers...a Windows 2000 Computer  with  a propritary camara system that takes pictures of your eye  had slowed up and they wanted to know if there was anything we could do. We told them to buy a new computer from their vendor as this one was not just worth the time as it was just too old.  It should be noted that this computer had a few shared folders that were being accessed by 2 other Windows 2000 computers in the shop.  We did not take notice of how it was connected to the network....ie location of the jack.

We got a call today saying that the tech from the company that sold them the computer/cam system cannot get it to connect to the other 2 computers and he was giving up...could not even find the switch....hub.

We came in and could not get the computer/cam computer to pull an IP. It was plugged into a jack in the wall. We checked the pjack with another computer (known good) and same...no ip.  I then went looking for the router.  Found it buried in a shelf..but it is the Digi C/Con-16. This is a Serial Port concentrator.  So I put a tracer on the jack in the wall to see if I can get a signal trace back to the Digi…

I have a Boston Acoustics speaker system on my PC.  Previously no hum; now, a bad hum.

I just moved to a new house.  At old house, no hum, even when everything was plugged in and operational.  Had the bass up to a nice, decent level -- no problem.  Unplugged everything, packed it, moved to new house a scant 2 miles away. Set it all back up again, changed NO settings... and now I have a hum.

Here's the funny part.  It has NOTHING to do with the little speakers; it has NOTHING to do with loose connections or a surge strip; it has NOTHING to do with being close to PC's power cord.  Here's how I know: I took ONLY the subwoofer to a bathroom, plugged it directly into an AC outlet by itself, near no other electrical devices, and it hums.  Badly.

Any thoughts or solutions?

Hello,

I have just build a Pc with Intel D945PSN motherboard, Intel processor (Pentium 4 3.06 MHz, LGA775 package), 2Mb dual-channel memory (all 4 slots) in an Antec P150 case. I did not use additional thermal grease between the processor and fan. The cpu fan seems to be securely attached (locked) to the motherboard.

Additional components are an SATA HD, floppy amd CR-RW/DVD-Read IDE Drive. Power supply is ATX12V ver. 2.2

With case fan (92mm) at high speed and the case side off, the PC shuts down after a few minutes with a thermal shutdown message. There was no speaker sound(siren sound), before shutdown.

The processor zone and two temperature threshold zones are clear of cables and air flow does not appear to be restricted.

Now the interesting parts:

(1) The above ocurred in my home office (cooled @ 73 deg.) with the Antec case side off. What follows is with case closed.

(2) Running the PC in my workshop (not cooled, 5 degress warmer) for an hour the shutdown problem did not occur.

(3) Running the PC in my home office *and* booting from WINXP Pro installation CD,the shutdown problem did occur when windows was starting.

(4) Running the PC in my workshop *and* booting from WINXP Pro installation CD,the shutdown problem did occur when windows was starting.

(5) Running the PC in my workshop for a couple of hours with no CD the shutdown problem did not occur.

I have looked at …

I bought a brand new Belkin KVM switch today, that has the cables built-in. After ignoring the reviews from other people who have bought this that it had problems, I experienced the exact same problems (switching computers at random, not working with SBS 2003 altogether etc...)!

Can anyone recommend a decent switch I could try? It has to support USB in and out and control up to 2 computers.

Thanks in advance.

I have a couple of problems here.
First I have a partner institution that cannot access a website we share using http by the dns name www.slrlc.org.  They can access it by the ip address 4.36.133.71.  They can ping the site by dns name www.slrlc.org and ip address 4.36.133.71  Firefox returns the message "invalid ip address", IE 6 returns "page not found".  Everyone else seems to be able to access the site by DNS name without a hitch.  I'm puzzled by the fact they can ping it by name but not access the website by name.

We're using Check Point's NGX for the firewall.  The log shows both the http and ping packets being accepted.

Second, I've run fw monitor on the firewall console and piped the output to a file, which I opened up with Ethereal.  I see a lot of lines that read "TCP previous segment lost" and "TCP retransmission" for all the upper layer protocols, http, smtp, etc.

HI Guys,

Here's my situation.  On the same piece of property I live in one house (a guest house) and my father lives in the main house.  The two houses are seperated by about 75 - 90 feet.  My house has the DSL connection.  I have just bought my fater an HP ZV6000 series laptop and want to be able to allow him to share my DSL.  I will be setting up a wireless router in my house and need to know what the best way is for him to pick up my signal.  My thought is to put an access point in his house.  Here is the problem though.  Our houses were built back in the 1940's when building constuction was top notch.  We have solid 18 inch thick concrete wall  and the room were his laptop will be also has a lot of glass.  What I want to do is use an extended cable to router with an outdoor antenna but atennuation loss is drastic with cable from an antenna to router.  Secondly, is it even possible to put an access point in his house without a network cable.  Thirdly, while the router would be connected to the modem and a main tower PC in my house I also need to be able to have my laptop connect to the signal.  So how do I get a directional antenna pointing towards his house and still have the routers antenna in my house pickup my laptop signal.  I have been looking at Hawking Technologies because they have high db out door antennas.  Does anyone have any suggestions on possible eqipment to use and how to configure it.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.
