File Sharing in Windows 2000/XP Pro

Before setting up file sharing
  • Your computer must be connected to the campus network in order to set up file sharing. If you need to connect your computer to the network.
  • You will need to log into your computer using an Administrator account (in most cases, this is the account you normally log in with).
  • Make sure you are logging into your computer by using a password and that every other user account on your computer is set up with a password. If your computer does not have password-protected user account(s), you are at high risk from hackers taking over your computer and using it for illegal purposes without your knowledge.
  • Install the latest security patches and updates.
  • Check your anti-virus program and make sure it is up-to-date.
  • For computers with Windows XP Pro:
    • If your computer was set up to work on a LAN at home or any place other than Wellesley, you must disable the non-Wellesley network connections in order for file sharing to work correctly. Note: You will need to re-enable these connection(s) when you take your computer off the Wellesley College network, i.e. off-campus.
      1. Go to the Start menu and select the Control Panel.
      2. If you do not see the Network Connections icon in the Control Panel, click on the link for Switch to Classic View near the top left of the window.
      3. Double-click on the Network Connections icon.
      4. In the Network Connections window, to check which Local Area Connection icon is for Wellesley, select the icon and make sure the Details menu on the left side of the window is displayed (double-arrows next to the word Details should be pointing down). The IP Address should start with 149.130.
      5. If you see any other Local Area Connection icons or 1394 Connection icons listed in the Network Connections window, right-click on the connection and select Disable from the menu.
      6. Close any open windows.
    • If you have Windows XP Pro's Internet Connection Firewall enabled, it will prevent your computer from being able to share files and prevent you from using several resources at Wellesley College. To turn it off:
      1. Go to the Start menu and select the Control Panel.
      2. If you do not see the Network Connections icon in the Control Panel, click on the link for Switch to Classic View near the top left of the window.
      3. Double-click on the Network Connections icon.
      4. In the Network Connections window, right-click on Local Area Connection (the one for Wellesley as described in step 4 above) and select Properties from the window.
      5. Click on the Advanced tab.
      6. Uncheck Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet and then click OK.
I. Configure your computer for file sharing You will only need to configure your computer for file sharing once. If the option for file sharing is already set up on your computer or if you wish to set up another shared folder on your computer.
    1. Go to the Control Panel.
      • In Windows 2000, click on the Start button and then select Settings > Control Panel.
      • In Windows XP Pro, click on Start and then select the Control Panel.
    2. Double-click on the Network Dial-Up Connections or the Network Connections icon. In Windows XP, if you do not see this icon, click on Switch to Classic View located on the left side of the window to see all Control Panel options.
    3. In the new window that appears, right-click on the Local Area Connection icon and select Properties from the menu.
    4. In the Local Area Connection Properties window, check that the General tab is selected. Under the This connection uses the following items: or the Components checked are used by this connection section, check that File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks is listed and make sure that its checkbox is checked. If it is listed, the computer is already configured for file sharing; click Cancel and skip to the next section.
    5. Click the Install button.
    6. Click once on Service to select that option.
    7. Click Add.
    8. Click once on File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks to select it and then click OK.
    9. Click Close.
    10. If the computer asks to restart, click No.
Setting up the folder that will be shared Only folders may be shared, not individual files, i.e. if you wish to share a file named blue.doc, then you must put blue.doc inside a folder and then share that folder by following the directions below. Note: If a Windows 98 computer is going to access your shared folder, then the name of your shared folder should not contain any spaces.
    1. Right-click on the file or folder to be shared. In the drop-down menu that appears, select Sharing or Sharing and Security.
    2. Select Share this folder. The name of the folder that appears on the network may be changed by typing in the new name in the Share name field.
    3. Click on Permissions.
    4. Click once on Everyone to select it and then click Remove.
    5. Click Add.

    On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable.

    You can try to connect the two computers first without the internet connection.

    Example : PC A
