You do this by sharing a folder on you win 2k file server computer and setting appropiate permissions
and you access you're share folder via network neighborhood or my network places. you may also may want to map the share folder for you to easily access stuff in it and put stuff back aswell.

you also need some physical set up
your network should be something like this

internet ISP------ modem-------- router-------- file server (win 2k)
-------- your computer
also you neet to give your network a name so all your computers are part of the same network (peer to peer network)

this will give you detail instructions on sharing folders:

What does 'Unknown Server Error 500' mean?


This is caused by incorrect MIME handling by Windows when 'DBF Viewer 2000' is installed. The 'DBF Viewer 2000' program associates the .DBF file extension with 'application/DBF Viewer 2000' instead of 'application/octet-stream'. Remove 'DBF Viewer 2000' from the affected system. If you are still experiencing the issue I can suggest this program DBF Repair Toolbox https://www.repairtoolbox.com/dbfrepair.html

How to Check Windows 7 Firewall Settings

1. Click on the start button, and then click on Control Panel

2. Once in Control Panel click on Windows Firewall. Here you will see the main firewall settings.

Note with the newer versions of Windows, this includes Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 you now leave the service running. If you want to turn off the firewall you just click on the "Turn Windows Firewall on or off" option.

In addition if something networking related is not working properly it may me a good idea to turn off the Windows Firewall for testing to see if the Windows Firewall is actually causing your problem.

3. If you are planning to leave the Windows Firewall running it is a good idea to check your "Advanced settings"

Once in here you will be able to check your incoming and outgoing rules, as well as your connection rules.

Note if you still have trouble after setting the "Advance settings" there could be another firewall on a computer or on the network in general blocking the communication. If you are communicating from computer to computer in most cases your need to make sure the same firewall changes are on both computers.

Cannot Connect to Minecraft Server


Try changing the server port in the server.properties file. There may be another program using this port. If that does not wor try to start the server without being connected to a network (note when the server is changed you must append it to the ip. For example 192.168.1.2:25564)

What happened is that when you joined the domain, the W2K8 server's firewall settings probably changed disallowing the device to get activated. Simply run the vSpace installer (while the system is a domain member) and select the option to REPAIR the software. Also, make sure that the background hardware activation setting is turned on. That setting is in the vSpace console under system settings. Lastly, if you're still having an issue, download the latest version of vSpace, v6.1.3.10. Uninstall your current version and install 3.10 after you reboot.

hi, try this

The suspicion of possible errors in system files in Windows, it may be worth a try to run the "hidden" program that comes with just Windows.
System allows an administrator to scan all protected files to verify their versions.

If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version from the cache folder (% Systemroot% \ System32 \ Dllcache) or source files for Windows installation, and replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and filling up the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc / scannow, sfc / Scanonce or sfc / scan boot to repair its contents.

To use SFC:

1) Press Start
2) Select Run ...
3) Enter: sfc / scannow and press OK
(Remember that there should be space after sfc)



More info about the System
Sfc [/ Scannow] [/ Scanonce] [/ Scan Boot] [/ Revert] [/ Purgecache] [/ Cache Size = x]

• / Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation.

• / Scanonce: Scans all protected system files once when you start the computer. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation when you start the computer. SfcScan DWORD value 2 in the following registry key when you run this command:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

• / Boot Scan: Scans all protected system files every time you start your computer. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation every time you start your computer. SfcScan DWORD value of 1 in the following registry key when you run this command:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

• / Revert: Restoring default scan setting (not scan protected files when you start your computer). The default cache size is not reset when you run this command. This command is equivalent to the / Enable switch in Windows 2000.

• / Purgecache: Purges the file cache and scans all protected system files immediately. This command may require access to source files for Windows installation.

• / Cache Size = x: Sets the file cache size to x megabytes (MB). Default cache size is 50 MB. This command requires that you restart the computer, and then run the command / purgecache to adjust the size of the cache on the disk. This command provides SfcQuota DWORD value of x in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon
