    To all,

    I have ax XP Pro desktops, Vista Ultimate desktop and a Vista Business
    (preloaded) ThinkPad T61. Each one is on the same workgroup and I am
    trying to share files among them. I have the following -

    * All three units have the same login id and password.
    * All units are loaded with MSSQL, Oracle10g and DB2-ExpressC.
    * All firewall are turned off. Discovery, File, Folder, Printer, Media
    Sharing are all on, password protected sharing off.
    * XP Pro can only see/open Ultimate - Cannot Remote_Desktop to any.
    * Ultimate can see/open/Remote_Desktop to XP Pro.
    * Ultimate can see/Remote_Desktop the T61 name but cannot open any
    files. It can see the Media files however.
    * XP Pro cannot see/open/Remote_Desktop T61, cannot even see the name.
    * XP Pro can see/open Ultimate but cannot Remote_Desktop.
    * Pint the T61 IP is OK from all.
    * T61 can access SQLExpress, Oracle10g and DB2-ExpressC on the Ultimate
    but the same in the T61 are not visible to outside.

    The fail message is either network name is " .. not accessible... might
    not have permission....Windows cannot find the network path...". I
    searched the web for solution but no luck.

    Any idea how to get the T61 (business) to act like the (Ultimate) and is
    visible to the outside?

    Thanks in advance,


    Frank

    Robert,

    From XP to (T61) Business
    ping 192.168.2.6 is OK but Net View \\192.168.2.6 is not good.

    Same result when do this from the ultimate.

  4. Hey Robert, Chuck, Barb [or any MVP],

    I upgraded my Netgear router WGR614v6 to WGR614v8. I have a Vista Premium
    laptop, LAPTOP-PC, and XP Home desktop, DESKTOP-PC, connected to the router
    using a WIRED connection. I have no problem accessing the internet from
    either of them.

    [I think] After replacing the router, this problem started. DESKTOP-PC, if
    visible to LAPTOP-PC, is no longer accessible. "Windows can not access
    \\DESKTOP-PC" and the error code is 0x80070035. And, from DESKTOP-PC,
    LAPTOP-PC is not visible under "My Network Places".

    I have the entire C drive shared in DESKTOP-PC, allowing network users to
    change files.

    In LAPTOP-PC, under Network and Sharing Center I have:
    Network Discovery On,
    File Sharing On,
    Public Folder Sharing On [anyone with network access can change, open,
    create files],
    Printer Sharing On,
    Password Protected Sharing Off,
    Media Sharing Off.

    I thought I covered all the bases here. Any ideas? Barb, I know you have the
    same router, maybe there is something else that needs to be configured?

  5. It could be the name resolution issue if you have enabled sharing. Have you
    enabled the NetBIOS over TCP/IP? These search results may help.

    Here is the Error dump -> Try to access TPAD (Business) from Desktop
    (Ultimate)

    \\TPAD is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator to use this network
    resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
    have access permission.

    Windows cannot find the network path. Verify that the network path is
    correct and the destination computer is not busy or turned off. if
    Windows still cannot find the network path, contact your network
    administrator

  9. System error 51 means you can't access the remote computer sharing? Make
    sure the server service is running. Or this search result may help.

    Robert,

    Yes, Server service is started.
    I checked out all the references and none of them offers a solution. I
    compared the setup for both the Ultimate and Business computer and they
    are identical as far as I can tell. I even went back to retrieve the
    backup disk pack, the one I made right after I install the pre-loaded
    laptop and no luck. I'll call IBM to see whether anything unusual about
    this Vista business laptop and also order the downgrade XP disk. May be
    I'll wait for some Vista service pack before I dive in again.

    Thanks,


    Frank

    It is definitely set to a Private Network?
    Have you seen
    http://technet2.microsoft.com/Windo...8eb8-45af-b063-4f50f5a77b291033.mspx?mfr=true
    ?

    It helps if all computers are in the same workgroup. XP and Vista
    have different default workgroups.
