Network issue


Hello

This is an unusual error. Error Code 1236 - The network connection was aborted by the local system.

There is no single issue that causes this error code, so we need to verify all of the networking basics are covered and working.

1. Verify the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are fully entered and / or populated by the DHCP server. Click START, then RUN, type in CMD then click the OK button. Type IPCONFIG /ALL - verify the three fields all have valid info for your network.

2. Verify you can see the local network - including other computers and network devices. This will rule out the possibliity that this computer cannot see any network devices and not just the shared folders

3. Log the user out and have another user that can access the shared folders log into this comptuer and try to access the shares. The user profile could be corrupted and preventing the user from accessing the shared folders. IF the new user cannot access the shared folders, then it is the PC / OS causing the issue. IF they can access the shared folders, backup the original user's data, delete their profile and have them log in again to create a new profile.

It is always recommended to upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 3 - unless you have a very specific program that will not run on SP3.

Tips to help you work more securely from Wi-Fi hotspots in public


7 tips for working securely from wireless hotspotsWireless hotspots are changing the way people work. These wireless local area networks (LANs) provide high speed Internet connection in public locations—as well as at home—and need nothing more than a mobile PC such as a laptop or notebook computer equipped with a wireless card.
In fact, hotspots are an everyday connection method for travelers and remote workers to browse the Internet, check their e-mail, and even work on their corporate networks while away from the office.
Hotspots range from paid services, such as T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless, to public, free connections. Hot spots are everywhere, including:
  • Coffee shops
  • Restaurants
  • Libraries
  • Bookstores
  • Airports
  • Hotel lobbies
But they all have one thing in common—they are all open networks that are vulnerable to security breaches. And that means it's up to you to protect the data on your PC. In this article, we cover a few tips to make working in public locations more secure.
Try to choose more secure connectionsIt's not always possible to choose your connection type—but when you can, opt for wireless networks that require a network security key or have some other form of security, such as a certificate. The information sent over these networks is encrypted, which can help protect your computer from unauthorized access. The security features of different networks appear along with the network name as your PC discovers them.
Make sure your firewall is activatedA firewall helps protect your mobile PC by preventing unauthorized users from gaining access to your computer through the Internet or a network. It acts as a barrier that checks all incoming information, and then either blocks the information or allows it to come through. All Microsoft Windows operating systems come with a firewall, and you can make sure it's turned on.
To activate the Windows Vista Firewall
  1. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Network and Internet.
  3. Under Windows Firewall, click Turn Windows Firewall on or off.
  4. Ensure that On is selected.
To activate the Windows XP Firewall
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Network Connections.
  3. In the Network Connections window, under Network Tasks, click Change Windows Firewall Settings.
  4. In the Windows Firewall dialog box, on the General tab, ensure that On is selected.
Monitor your access pointsChances are that there are multiple wireless networks anywhere you're trying to connect. These connections are all access points, because they link into the wired system that gives you Internet access. So how do you make sure you're connecting to the right one? Simple—by configuring your PC to let you approve access points before you connect.
Configure Windows Vista Access Points Windows Vista takes the guesswork out of connecting to hotspots because you are automatically prompted to approve new connections. In addition, after you approve a connection, you assign it a profile for future use.
Configure Windows XP Access Points
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
  2. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Wireless Networks tab, make sure that the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box is selected.
  4. Under Preferred networks, make sure that the name of the network that you want to connect to is highlighted, and then click Advanced.
  5. Click Access point (infrastructure) network only, and then click Close.
Disable file and printer sharingFile and printer sharing is a feature that enables other computers on a network to access resources on your computer. When you are using your mobile PC in a hotspot, it's best to disable file and printer sharing—when it's enabled, it leaves your computer vulnerable to hackers. Remember, though, to turn this feature back on when you return to the office.
Disable file and printer sharing in Windows Vista
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet, and then click Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Under Sharing and Discovery, click the arrow next to File sharing, click Turn off file sharing, and then click Apply.
  4. Click the arrow next to Printer sharing, click Turn off printer sharing, and then click Apply.
Disable file and printer sharing in Windows XP
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Security Center, and then click Windows Firewall.
  3. Click the Exceptions tab, and then under Programs and Services, clear the File and Printer Sharing check box.
Make your folders privateWhen the folders on your mobile PC are private, it's more difficult for hackers to access your files.
To make a folder private in Windows Vista Windows Vista not only makes folders private by default, but it also requires passwords for shared folders. As a result, you're already covered! But if you want to double-check, simply right-click on the folder in question, and select Properties. On the Security tab, you can review the set permissions.
To make a folder private in Windows XP
  1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  2. Click the drive where Windows is installed, and then click Documents and Settings.
  3. Open your user folder, right-click the folder that you want to make private, and then click Properties.
  4. On the Sharing tab, click Do no share this folder, and then click OK.
Repeat the steps above for each folder that you want to make private.
Encrypt your filesYou can protect your files further by encrypting them, which requires a password to open or modify them. Because you must perform this procedure on one file at a time, consider password-protecting only the files that you plan to use while working in a public place.
Consider completely removing sensitive data from your notebook PCIf you're working with extremely sensitive data, it might be worth taking it off your notebook PC altogether. Instead, save it on a corporate network share and access it only when necessary. This way, you have multiple safeguards in place.
A few simple precautions can help make working in public places more secure. And by selecting the best connections and adjusting settings, you can enjoy productive and safe work sessions no matter where you are.

Can't Share Files/Folders over home network


That sounds more like the security settings on the pc are not set correctly. Should be nothing to do with the card or the laptop. This is just a windoze thing.

Share a drive or folder on the network To share a drive or folder on the network
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifWindows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share.
  2. Right-click the drive or folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
    • If you are sharing a drive, on the Sharing tab, click If you understand the risk but still want to share the root of the drive, click here.
    • If you are sharing a folder, go to the next step.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • If the Share this folder on the network check box is available, select the check box.
    • If the Share this folder on the network check box is not available, this computer is not on a network. If you would like to set up a home or small office network, click the Network Setup Wizard link and follow the instructions to turn on file sharing. Once file sharing is enabled, begin this procedure again.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
  • When you share a drive or folder, anyone who has user access to the network can read the contents of that drive or folder. If you want to remove the drive or folder from the network, follow steps 1 and 2 above to get to the Sharing tab. On the Sharing tab, in Network sharing and security, clear the Share this folder on the network check box.
  • To allow complete access to the contents of your shared drive or folder, follow steps 1 and 2 above to get to the Sharing tab. On the Sharing tab, in Network sharing and security, select the Allow network users to change my files check box.
  • To change the name of your folder on the network, in the Share name text box, type a new name for your folder. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer.
  • If you are logged on as a guest (a guest account provides access to the computer for any user who does not have a user account on the computer), you cannot create a shared folder.
  • The Sharing option is not available for the Documents and Settings, Program Files, and WINDOWS system folders. In addition, you cannot share folders in other user's profiles.

What is run time error '-2147467259(80004005)' how i solved it rewati nadan


"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:
  • The account that Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is using (which is usually IUSR) does not have the correct Windows NT permissions for a file-based database or for the folder that contains the file.
  • The file and the data source name are marked as Exclusive.
  • Another process or user has the Access database open.
  • The error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.
  • This error may also occur when you access a local Microsoft Access database that is linked to a table where the table is in an Access database on a network server.
Resolution
  • Check the permissions on the file and the folder. Make sure that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files. Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database, but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT folder. For additional information about how to identify which folder does not have the correct permissions and how to configure temporary files, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 253604 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253604/ ) Microsoft Access 97 database connectivity fails in Active Server Pages If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
  • Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
  • The "other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
  • Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.
  • Follow the instructions in the following article to work around this problem: 189408 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/189408/ ) FIX: ASP fails to access network files under IIS 4.0 and IIS 5.0

I have a problem with a printer which is connected locally to a pc (comp1) on the network. I can access it from one pc but can not access from 3 other pc. I have three printers locally connected and...


Hi Shueb,

First off, I assume if your running a network, you'd have a server based product running. If so, I would have the server manage the printer as a shared printer. This can be accomplished by setting up the share either in your management console or your active directory. Then the server will administer the rights to the printer. If your running a network with just workgroups, then you will have to right click the printer and go to share and security. From there go to permissions and make sure that the users on those machines have permission to access it.

A real easy way to connect a shared printer on a network is to browse through the entire network icon, and click on the machine that is sharing that printer, and when you see the printer right click it, and go to connect printer, and that's it. As long as you've got all the drivers for all the different OS's on the differnent machine, it will install the driver and give you access.

Good Luck,
Mark

File sharing between windows 2000 and XP


1) I believe that Windows XP is not setup for that by default,
you may need to install the old BETBUI service.

2) Also, if the 2000 machine has a login password installed,
it will NOT allow any other machine to browse it, without
logging in.

3) Password-less file sharing over NETBUI was available
on the consumer side of windows:

Windows 3.11 for Work groups
Windows 95, 98 and Millenium.

The professional versions of windows, built on NT
technology require a login:

Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP,
and now Vista.

4) The best work around is to login to the 2000 machine when
it prompts you for a password, using your regular USER ID
and PASSWORD.

If the 2000 machine is not setup with a secure login,
just create a new account, ranking power user or higher.

5) Note that you only need to login over the network ONCE,
because windows XP can REMEMBER your password,
and login automatically the next time.

6) Make sure that the firewall (or A firewall) is not
blocking access to either machine, just disable the
firewalls for testing.

Similarly, if your LAN is behind a residential router, using
the router as a smart hub or switch, make sure that
the routers MAC address access blocking is disabled,
until you get everything setup and tested.

7) Finally if a PC is not visible in a work group, this does not
mean that it is not accessible. This is a Windows quirk.

You can try to access another computer by using the
default/administrative shares. These shares cannot be
disabled in XP, at least they will not stay disabled, as
they will restart during every reboot, whether you like it
or not.

This means that you can ALWAYS access all the drives
on another machine, whether you share them or not, unless
you take extreme measures in the local policies.

To access drive "E:" on a computer called "Henry" on a
machine in the same work-group,

open up windows explorer, and tyr the following into the
address line:

\\Henry\E$

This should access drive E:, after some delay, and possibly
a login prompt, even though drive is is NOT marked as
shared.

Down you just love windows ?!
Security by obscurity ?!
Microsoft is getting very good at hanging massive steel doors
on paper walls.

Hope this solves your problem, or gets around it.
Please rate my answers,

  1. turn on the computer that has the printer attached.
  2. configure computer to share (start/settings/printer-faxes/right click on default printer/select sharing tab/ select share this printer/ apply settings/OK)(This computer must also be connected to the router so your laptop will see it as a network device)
  3. on wireless laptop, add printer
  4. when prompted select network printer.

For my wifes ease of use I purchased for $20.00 network magic which auto configured all my devices and monitored any access to my wireless router so I could choose who could access my open router.

Local Disk(D:) is not accessible Access is denied


This occurs when the drive was taken from a PC where someone made the drive un-shareable.
The fix in XP:
1. Turn off Simple File Sharing, via Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View, (NOT) use Simple File Sharing.
2. Now when you right click the drive letter for the drive on the new PC you will see a Security tab (made invisible by Simple File Sharing).
3. On the Security Tab, add yourself or any user, and grant Full Permission.
4. Now you can Explore the drive like any other.
