I would like to share files between two computers


There are several things you need in order to share files between two computers on a network:

1. You should both be in the same "workgroup" , in Win 7 it's called "homegroup"

2. You also need to have "file and printer sharing" enabled under your network connection properties

3. AND you also need to set the drives/folders or files you wish to share to "sharing" /"share as" in order to give permission to access

Note that with Windows 7 files that are to be shared can only be easily accessed under USER, PUBLIC folder. On older OS you can set most any drive and folder to a SHARE

To instruct you how to do these things I need to know what operating systems you have on the machines you wish to share files on.

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!

Contant need top reboot the program


Do a wireless scan on your computer and out how many wireless access is in your neighborhood. More than likely that your router is sharing the same wireless channel number as your neighbor's. Go to your router and cheange to opposite of what your neighbor is on.

I have a e-studio 282 copier i cant access the smb server through windows 7 but i can through windows XP what shall i do to fix the problem


Sharing on Vista & Window 7 are not as easy as Window XP.
Kindly check below settings on your network connection:

Network Discovery: turn on network discovery
File and printer sharing: turn on
Public folder sharing: Your choice. It can be on or off.
Media Streaming: By default, this is off. You can turn it on if you want, but it is not why we are here, so I'm going to leave it off for now.
Password protected sharing: Turn off password protected sharing
HomeGroup connections: This doesn't really matter, since you already left homegroup. However, I allowed Windows to manage my homegroup connections. It seemed easier than arguing.

Unable to access my Laptop on My Network from my Desktop. Desktop connected to D Link DI-524 via LAN Cable and Laptop connected to same router via Wifi. Please provide a solution how to access and share...


To enable file sharing you need to follow the below steps
I moved this to networking for better exposure. I'll give you some basic tips, but it's generally pretty simple.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
Let me know if this will help

Connecting my laptop wirelessly to my desktop


You will need to first allow sharing of files and folders.

Then, in Windows Explorer, right click the directory of the files you want to share.

Then, on the computer that you want to access the shared files of the other computer, you will need to login to that computer by scrolling down to Computers near me and finding the computer you want to access. Login.

At least that how I do it.

Let me know if this works for you, or I will find a website to point you to.

D-link DI-524 wireless - lan network connection


Yep. Vista sucks :-)

In the vista machine, you have to turn on a whole bunch of options. Right click Network, hilghlight properties and left click and it opens up Network and Sharing Center. Down at the bottom, you have a list of options. Start by turning on the options you need: File Sharing, Public File sharing, Printer Sharing etc. I'm pretty sure it's already done in the XP machine, but if not, check there too.

It should start to show network files between machines.

you want to setup a peer to peer network using a workgroup. File sharing must be enabled in XP and Vista in order to share files. Temporarily disable the firewalls in Windows when setting up the shares....search on the Internet for setting up a Workgroup in XP

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).

File sharing


Hi,

File Sharing could be easily done between your laptop & desktop assuming both are running some Windows version with no other program needed to install. You have to right click on the filename/folder and enable sharing. Of course both computers must belong to the same network group for easy access.

Should you need additional information, pls post back your Windows version.

Good luck and kind regards.
