If you have windows XP, look for them in your computer by going to My computer>Local Disk C>Documents and settings.
You should see your user folder there. If you open it, you should find your documents.

If you have Vista, look in Computer>OS C:>Users.

How to use comupter as sever


Proxy server
Use a Computer as a Proxy Server
Small networks can still take advantage of a proxy server.
The Microsoft Windows operating system allows you to turn your computer into a proxy server.
A proxy server is a central computer on the network connected to the Internet.
Other computers on the network use the machine to connect to the Internet.
The Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) configurations on the machine allow you to turn your computer into a proxy server.

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel."
Double-click "Network and Internet Connections."
Double-click "Network Connections" to view a list of network card settings.
Right-click your network card icon and select "Properties."
For most users, this icon is labeled "Local Network."
Click the "Advanced" tab.

Check the box named "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the section labeled "Internet Connection Sharing."
A warning message pops up telling you that your IP is reset for the proxy computer.
Click "OK."

Reboot your computer for the settings to take effect.
You also need to reboot each client machine on the network to ensure they see the proxy server.
Turn a Computer Into a Server
When you have more than several computers and users who want to share files and resources, whether in your home or in a small office, you can convert a computer into a server.
Building a server out of a computer will allow users to access files whichever computer they use to access them.
An example of the resources that can be shared is a printer and shared folders such as photos and documents. Here's how to convert a computer into a server.

Prepare your computer.
Clean up the computer with unnecessary files to save on space.
If your computer is really old, install the latest operating software so that it is compatible with the rest of the computers that will share its resources.
For this example, we are installing Windows XP.
Check the hard drive space or capacity if you have enough.
You can do away with 256MB sized old computer, but you may want to think about adding more disk space for future needs.
You can easily buy extra internal or external hard drives to bump up your disk space to a capacity that you would desire.
Try purchasing a 10GB extra disk drive then insert it in computer or connect via a serial port or USB hub it if it is external drive.
To install the hard drive driver on XP, let the hardware wizard run you through the options.
You can install the driver with the installation CD software that your hard drive came with.
Follow the options during installation. ,


Check your computer if the network card (ethernet card) is functioning properly. if it does not, you would need to install a NIC or Network Interface Card.
Some old computers have 10 megabit cards, but if you want to have high network performance and better connectivity through your LAN (Local Area Network) then you would need to upgrade your NIC by installing a 100 megabit or 10 gigabit NIC.
Install your network card driver using the installation CD that came with it then follow the installation wizard.

Get a network router. Connect this router to your high speed connection.
The most common ones to use are Netgear, Linksys or DLink routers.
Choose a wireless router so that if you have wireless users they can connect easily (plus this will save you on trying to connect cables to the router all over the place).
Set up your network connections.
Click on "Start," "Control Panel and "Network and Internet Connections."
Pick a task from the options listed or pick a control panel icon, in this case "Network Connections."
If you are set up to pick up the IP Address of your computer automatically, one you have installed your NIC in Step 4 and rebooted, it will pick up the connections automatically whether plugs in using a LAN or network cable or using wireless card.

Rename your computer. Name it so that it can easily be identifiable in your network.
You can either name it simply "SERVER" to be easily recognized, but it is all up to you how you want to name your server.
To name your server if you are using Windows XP, you can right-click on "My Computer" then click on "Properties."
Go to "Computer Name" tab then click on "Change."
Other Windows operating systems or versions would have this feature located somewhere else. Read the owner's manual that your computer came with it.

Create a shared folder by going to "My Computer" and "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents."
Create a new folder by right-clicking on the screen, then click on "New Folder."
Name the new folder "Shared Files" or anything that can easily be identifiable.
Take note that on Windows XP, any folder that you create and then dragged into the "Shared Documents" folder will be automatically shared by everyone.
You can restrict certain folders by dragging the folder out of the "Shared Documents" folder, then right-clicking on the file folder, clicking on "Properties," then the "Sharing" tab and finally "Make this Folder Private."
Create a shared resource by adding a printer or fax to use. Go to "Start."
Click on "Printers and Faxes" and "Add a Printer," then let the installation wizard that came with the printer or fax guide you.
Name your printer or fax (for example, "Shared Printer").
Then once the printer is installed, set it up so that you can share it by right-clicking on the "Shared Printer," then on "Properties," "Sharing" tab and finally on "Share this printer."
Connect any computer to your server.
Go to each computer and ensure they are connected on the same router.
Then go to "Start" and "Run," type in "EXPLORER," then on the menu click on "Tools" and "Map Network Drive."
A window will pop open where you will assign a "Drive" letter and a "Folder."
Choose any driver letter, for example "G" to denote "Group" drive or "S" to denote "Shared Drive," then type in the IP address of the server.
To do this, go to the server, then go to "Start" and "Run," type in "CMD" then type in "IPCONFIG." This will display your server's IP address.
Type the IP address on the "Folder" field on the computer.
You can also try if the computer will automatically find it by choosing the drive letter then clicking on the "Browse" button on the "Folder" field.
Start using the shared resources by going to the drive letter that has been assigned on your computer.

Sharing Your Own Computer's Stuff with the Network


To share a file or folder with your fellow computer users, move the file into your Shared Documents folder, which lives in your My Computer window. (You must move or copy a file into the Shared Documents folder; shortcuts don't always work.)

After you place your file or folder into your Shared Documents folder, it appears in the Shared Documents folder of everybody else using your computer.

Administrators can share folders without having to move them into the Shared Documents folder. The trick is to follow these steps:

1. Right-click on a folder you'd like to share and choose Sharing and Security from the pop-up menu.

Open My Computer and right-click on the folder you'd like to share. When the menu appears, select Sharing and Security. A window appears, showing the Properties for that folder. It opens to the Sharing tab.

Right-click on a folder and choose Sharing and Security to share the folder on the network.

2. Click the box marked Share This Folder on the Network.

A check mark in that box lets everybody peek at, grab, steal, change, or delete any of the files in that folder. To let visitors look inside the files but not change them, remove the check mark from the box marked Allow Network Users to Change My Files.

3. Click OK.

Now that particular folder and all its contents are available for everybody on the network to share.

Sharing a lot of folders isn't a good idea because it gives network visitors too much control over your computer. Even if you trust people, they might accidentally mess something up. To be safe, only share files by placing them in the Shared Document folder.

Inside Shared Documents live two more folders, Shared Music and Shared Pictures. Those two folders are also available to any user. So, if you want to share documents with any user of your computer, store them in the Shared Documents folder. When you make MP3s from your CDs, store them in the Shared Music folder, too, so that everybody can enjoy them.

Xerox scanning error 027-516:server connection error in smb


This means that your machine cannot connect to the network share to which it is supposed to write the scanned documents.
There may be several causes:
- if it worked before, perhaps the server or computer with shared folder to which the Xerox unit is configured to write files is unavailable/switched off, or the shared folder is not shared anymore or has changed security permissions, preventing the Xerox from writing, or the share name has changed
- if it never worked, perhaps the Xerox needs configuring prior to use (how it should deliver the faxes, via network share or email). Refer to it's manual on how to configure scan delivery.

I am using server 2003 as file server wchich is in workgroup and connected to the network. problem is arising when any system from the network wants to access the shared folder the user unable to access...


Try this:

go to start>run and type: \\ server ip address
for example, if its 192.168.10.20, type \\192.168.10.20

Navigate to that shared folder, right click on it and create shortcut.

If the previous step doesnt work, go to server, unshare that folder, restart and share it again. Try accessing it.

Hope this helps

Good luck!

Files and directory listings on a Web Server


Without knowing what software you are using its hard to give specifics but it sounds like you need to change the permissions on the folder. You may have the "read" attribute set but not the "list" attribute, you can open the file if you know its name but not list the contents of the directory. Unfortunatley these permissions must be set from the server side.

Wifi server


Once you have setup the central sever you can right click either the harddrive(s) or individual folders and there should be an option to share (or sharing and security). Open that and it should be quite straightforward to setup permissions so all computers can access those network places.
Next on the server right click My Computer and click properties. Write down what the workgroup name is.
Now go to the Vista laptops and goto Control Panel, then network places, or view wireless devices on network. Hopefully your shares will appear on the laptops and you can access them.
If they appear and you canot access them then you probably need to go back to step one and alter the permissions for sharing on the XP server.
Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com

Msi notebook wirelss is not working


I suggest you treat your problem as two separate issues. The first is configuring a Local Area Network (LAN) with file sharing. The second is configuring the wireless communication links.

If possible, set up a "wired" LAN that performs as desired before trying to integrate the wireless links into your LAN. Hopefully you could do this with the desktop computer, one or both of the notebooks, and the wireless router. Does the wireless router have four hard wired LAN ports that function as a switch?

While they don't address the wireless component of your problem, The following Microsoft documents (downloads) are excellent resources for understanding and troubleshooting Windows XP file and printer sharing:
File and Printer Sharing with Microsoft Windows
Troubleshooting File and Printer Sharing in Microsoft Windows XP

There's quite a bit of redundant information, so you may want to start with the second document.

Basically, I'm not a fan of "wizards". When they work, you're very happy. When they don't work, you're very unhappy (and don't have a clue how to proceed). Setup the file sharing manually. The documents above essentially provide a tutorial to do that.

When you cannot see all of the server computers on the network in My Network Places or Network Neighborhood, the solution depends on whether you have successful network connectivity.

To check whether you have basic network connectivity from the browse client to the missing server computer, do the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In Open, type \\ComputerName (in which ComputerName is the name of the missing server computer), and then press ENTER.

If you get a window that displays the shared resources of the missing server computer, then you have basic network connectivity to the missing server computer. If you get an error message stating that the network path was not found, then there is a problem with basic network connectivity to the missing server computer.

If you have successful network connectivity to the missing server computer but you do not see it in the workgroup window, then it could be due to one of the following:

o The missing computers are configured with different workgroup name
o The browse servers do not yet have all the computers in their browse lists
o The missing computers are not on the same physical network segment

Good luck!

Installing of canon iR8500 digital copier


Hello ms1974,
I appologize if I responded in to you question in a curt manner. I am afraid I lumped your question in with ones like "I can't scan to e-mail, do i need a network cable?". However your question is rather wide open as far as what your needs are and what the device is capable of and what your question is. If you need to scan to a folder, (individual workstation or server) you will need to make a shared folder. Some customers want a shared folder on the server so that everyone can access it. Some people want individual shared folders constructed for each user. Some want both or neither. Because of security, many companys opt for strictly scanning to e-mail, as it can be monitored, tracked, and controlled by the IT people easily. The setup for each is quite different.imageRUNNER 7200_8500_105 Sending Function Guide.pdf . This should help you. If have more specific questions after reviewing this document then please allow me to help you.
