Question about Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103 Notebook

1 Answer

No longer can 'sync' my two laptops.

I used to be able to sync a common, shared folder between my two laptops. It was my auto-back up system, if you will. We had some service done and since then it doesn't work. 1) I did a 'ping' and can reach the host (toshiba).
2) I did a "net share' command and the doc$ does not appear. I was told I have to re-share the directory that maps to doc$. I have NO idea what this means or how to do it. I DO see the name of the folder MYFOLDER that is the one I used to be able to sync when both laptops were on the network at the same time, but it does not show up when I did the cmd net-share step. 3) I am assuming that the password, etc will be okay once I am able to see the folder in the net-share. Can you walk me throug the exact steps I need to do #2, above? Thanks a lot. Janet

Try going to cmd with all the laptops connected to your network and try the net view command
do you see the other computers?
try a net start command and then net share and that may be your issue.

otherwise you can simply right click the folder you want to share and click share, if your system recognizes any of the other systems on the network then they will apear in a drop down catalog.

i myself prefer the command prompt:
a "net stop" command followed by "net start", "net share", may reset the setting that is preventing you from sharing

GOOD LUCK and please post any responses from these commands if this is not the solution

Can i pair my hp laptop to my samsung R480 laptop


It depends on what you mean by "pair" If you want to transfer files, you should be able to do so through either your wireless or ethernet connection. Hopefully you have a connection both computers can use at the same time. Make sure both are in the same workgroup, both have file sharing set up, and decide which files you want to share, copy, or whatever. Go to start, control panel, then system. Then click on computer name tab. Change one or the other so both have the same workgroup, but different computer names. If you change workgroups, you will have to reboot. You need to have sharing set up – decide which folders you want to share, and click on “share this folder”. You will get a warning, and will have to say “ok” to enable sharing.

Now click on "network places" icon, if it is on your desktop. If it isn't, then go to my computer, and click the arrow to go up one level. Network places should be there. Click on "entire network", then on "Microsoft windows network" then on "mshome" or whatever your network is called. You should see at least two computers there. You cannot have two computers with the same name in a network, by the way. If both are in the same workgroup, and both have sharing set up, you can double click on both and shared folders will be there. It is easiest to arrange the two folders side by side. Within those folders are the files you want to share, or copy. Simply select the files, and drag them to the other computer.

Tip

Using a crossover cable to connect two computers.


Hi.

You can use a crossover cable to share files and folders between the two computers.

A crossover cable looks exactly the same as any Ethernet cable, but its internal wiring is reversed respect to the regular cables used to connect computers to routers or switches.Crossover cables have the 1st and 3rd wires (counting from left to right) crossed, and the 2nd and 6th wires crossed, thay can be recognised because the word Crossover is printed on top of the cable.

Before proceeding ensure that the cable you are using is a crossover. Crossover wiring isdifferent. By using an ordinary ethernet cable you will not be able to extablish a directconnection between computers.

To use the crossover you will need to disconnect any other cable connection to computer ethernet cards. Naturally both computers must have a wired network adapter installed .

After connecting the crossover, you will need to configure the network connection.

Turn off both computers, connect the crossover (cat5 or cat6) cable, and turn back on computers.

Ensure that all firewallare turned off, and on Vista answer yes to all requests of authorization for the new network.

On both computers go to system properties, and ensure that the two computers have the same workgroup.

Second step is going to Sharing and Security, in system properties, and sharing the files and folder that you want to transfer.

Once the folders are shared you will see in My computer (Computer on Vista) the folder shared from the other computer. Simply copy and paste the files.

You may be asked to restart computer after each step.

If after sharing files and folder you want to share Internet connection, then you will have to assign two IP addresses that are in the same range to the two connected computers.
An IP address is a series of numbers from 1 to 256, in the format XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX . The two IP addresses must share the first three numbers to share the internet connection. In the real case, you can set the IP adresses to 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.

How do I use eee sharing


I used to have Leno netbook, and I was able to share some of its folder with my current laptop, and mini mac.

As long as all the computers are connected to same router, it's possible.

In most case all you have to do is change the property of one folder in your netbook. Say "share this folder", and you're set to go. Than you will be able to see that folder in your finder.
