Accept Incoming Connections

Q: Accept Incoming Connections

To make a long story short, I'm following this guide to allow my Dreamcast to connect through my computer's broadband connection.

I got through it all fine until I have to create a connection that can accept incoming connections. I go into the new connection wizard but on the screen to set up an incomming connection, upon clicking next, I get the following message (sorry for using putfile):http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=10/29922373750.jpg&s=x10

I'm assuming it's an XP Home Edition thing, which is what I'm running, but I'm not sure.

Preferred Solution: Accept Incoming Connections

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have done everything I can think of to allow incoming RDP sessions, but it is not working.

I have checked the box under system properties/remote (Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer) and I have check the box under McAfee Firewall/ports and system services for port 3389.

I have also temporarily turned off the firewall....no good.

I know that system I am RDP'ing from works because I can get to a Windows XP machine.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all!

Yesterday, after my Win 8.1 box did an automatic restart because of updates, I can't connect to it anymore! When I try, the client gives me an error after approx 30 seconds, suggesting that the remote PC might be turned off, or having network related errors! I've been connecting to this machine this way for the last 6 months, and I just doublechecked that incoming RDP is turned on, and a "netstat -a -o" also shows that the port should be listening for connections. I also tried turning the built-in firewall off, no luck.

Anyone with suggestions? I really need RDP, since it's the only way to gain full productivity (ie multiple screens, printing to local printer etc)

Just noticed that there is no IP address in the table for port 3389, could this be related to my problem? Haven't changed anything on my network adapter, though!

FIrst of all, hi everybody, this is my first post here!!

i use win xp pro w/sp 2 and usb adls modem, and this is my problem: i created a vpn with a friend of mine, everything is perfect, except for one thing: i can connect to him (i mean, he acts as server) but i cannot be the server, when he tries to connect to me, he gets a connection refused error.. another example, i can play games as client but not as host... i can use a software for remote desktop (VNC free edition) and i can see his desktop (act as client) but he can't see mine (he gets timeouts and connection refused errors)...

i shutdown the firewall, the antivirus, and lowered internet security in windows, but i never managed to make it work!

apart from that, every p2p program works perfectly, so i'm a bit confused...

help...! i don't know how to fix this issue! wacko.gif

thanks in advance!

A:XP doesn't accept incoming connection, Help!

Do you have a DSL router with a firewall on it? Do you know what port is being used when you're trying to act as a server? If so, have your friend try to telnet to that port. You can also try locally telnetting to that port. If he can't, then the port is being blocked for some reason. If you can't, then there may be something else going on. If you're able to change the port, try that.

I have tried a set up with 'Allow callers to specify IP Addresses" and then setting up a client on another network with an IP in the range.

Hello, about a week ago I started experiencing a problem when trying to connect to my friends gaming servers (this may need to go in the gaming section but I think the problem is deeper than that. We use hamachi to avoid port forwarding, firewall issues etc and that refuses to let either of us ping each other, if I try to ping his public IP in CMD it works but if he tries to ping me he gets request timed out. I think the problem is with incoming connections to my laptop. It isn't network specific either as I've tried it on 3 different networks. To summarise, it seems to be any incoming connections are seemingly blocked/ not recognised by my laptop.

What I've tried to fix it:
-Disabling firewall and anti-virus
-Re-installing Hamachi
-checking for network adapter driver updates (None found)
-Trying to connect on different networks (Same problem)

I've had the problem for about a week and its driving me insane! Usually i can fix problems with windows but not this one so any help is massively appreciated

I bought a new notebook (Toshiba) with pre-installed Windows XP Home Edition and set it up in my great working LAN @home.
Now, although i shared files (NetBIOS), no one can access my shared directories. Not even by \\IP.

And the strangest thing: This doesn't seem to be a problem of the file-sharing protocol.
I tried FTP-Server, HTTP-Server, they work great on loop-back ( but no one else can connect. (I tried "telnet IP port" from remote computer as well, no connection!)
I only use WinXP-internal-Firewall, configured with Application and port exceptions, but it doesn't work even if I turn off the Firewall for all connections completely.

This problem is since I bought the notebook but I don't want to re-install Windows because everything else works fine.

Portscan reports that just port 21 would be open. With or without firewall but I have no program listening on 21.
netstat /a doesn't show a listen on 21/ftp.
When connecting via telnet from remote computer I get a connetion and can send but I dont't receive anything.

I hope someone can help me because I didn't find anything on the Internet, it's difficult to search for.

A:Strange: No incoming connections possible

After some months trying I finally found a solution to this.

I have the Cisco VPN Client installed, we need this one to connect to our University services. And this client features a "stateful firewall (always on)" which was activated by default and I couldn't think of that blocking my whole system! "always on" then stands for "even when VPN Client is not running".

I hope this helps other users..

I recently found the need to track the incoming IP's of machines attempting to RDP into my Server 2008 R2 servers, this includes a host of... I would say.. 30+ machines. I am only needing the ability to view, not block or stop, and would prefer to stay away from any 3rd party firewalls.

I have heard that the Windows firewall can do this, however, I also read that it cannot track IP's, only logon attempts.

I must be losing my memory, I swear I could have answered this very question one year ago....

Any ideas?

I've had an old PC that I've been experimenting with and have been turning into a NAS for my data so I can access it whenever necessary. I currently have the built-in Windows "Incoming Connections" VPN set up, and I've got it working good. But in the future I plan to have others be able to use it as well, but I'm not able to get more than 1 incoming connection to it at once. I've researched this a bit and from what I can gather this feature does in fact only allow 1 connection at once. Does anyone know of a way to allow more connections, or a third-party application that can create a VPN connection that accepts multiple connections? I've tried Hamachi and this does work, but I don't want to have people need to install another application for this (also, it's only free for 5 people). Answers appreciated!

I am really hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. I have successfully configured windows 2000 to accept incoming connections via a modem. I can now dial into my pc. What I need to do though is have a log of when someone has dialled in, when they have dialled out, and the name of that user. The log needs to be viewed by regular users of the PC (not only administrators).

I have tried all sorts of shareware which only seems to log outgoing modem activity, not incoming. Initially I thought Event Viewer may have been the answer but only administrators can view it and it only seems to log when someone has logged on (not out and the user is always NA).

Please help me!

I have Hamachi and I use it for gaming. I have always had a few problems linking up with a friend but I have been able to overcome them by forwarding ports ect ect.

Now my friend has bought a new pc (im not sure if this is the problem)

In Hamachi I can ping him but he cant ping me.

He gets a timed out message when trying to join my hosted game or when trying to ping me.

I have followed the troubleshooting advice by Hamachi and used cmd to ping different ips and my friend has done the same. The problem appears to be with my machine but the strange thing is that I can play il2 1947 and Arma 2 servers no problem.

I then uninstalled Avast and turned off Firewall but still he cannot ping me?

I have tried adding numerous instances of his ip's in the exceptions list of firewall - still no joy.

Given the proper user credentials in Windows 8.1, is it possible to programmatically create a New Incoming Connection, either via a Command Line utility or Windows PowerShell, in order to allow incoming connections VPN access using PPTP? I know I can do this via the GUI, but I'd like to do this programatically via a script of some sort. I'm aware of the port forwarding requirements / VPN passthrough of the firewall and/or router -- this isn't the issue.

I see there are a nice set of PowerShell VPN Client Cmdlets available for setting up a VPN Client, but I need something along the lines of VPN Server Cmdlets.

I am posting this is different sections to get more help. But here is the issue, the Road Runner business class modem that my client has is not allowing a certain port to roll through to the router, thus not maiing connection with the right computer. The router is a Linksys WRVS4400N, and does have internet connection. The setup is quite strange, and I believe the Time Warner reps did not turn off the private IP DHCP server of the modem. The modem is meant to distribute certain IPs to different routers or computers. Below are the specs I'm getting (11.11.11 are used in place of the real numbers of the IP address):

Linksys Router IP:
Cable Modem IP:
The router and modem have the same numbers except for the last set.

When viewing the Linksys Status, it says what it says above. However! The IP is accessible from the internet, but the is NOT. I need to find a way to get into the SMC modem and route the different ports to the IP address that the router is using from the modem. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!! THANKS!!!

Greetings 7Forums, you've helped me many times before by merely searching for issues from other users that posted here, however this time I'm afraid neither you or the internet has the solution I'm looking for. But first a bit of background information.

OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (Kernel is Win7 thus why I'm asking here)
Switch: TP-LINK TL-SG105
Router: Technicolor TG784n v3 (Basically a Thomson)
My goal: Port forward a domestic server.

So I installed Windows Server 2008 R2 in a computer and have it connected to a TP-LINK switch which is connected to the router that connects to the internet. Aside from the server I also have my main computer running Windows 7 and I've always been able to port forward successfully to host games dedicated servers. Because I never had any issue with the main computer I thought it would be as easy to do with the server version however I believe there must be some weird feature from the server version that is blocked or controling connections more severely than an average windows 7. Both have connection to the internet and I'm able to connect to such dedicated servers through LAN however the server as I said appears to be blocking connections from the outside despite the firewall is properly setup and even if off it won't budge. The router's port forwarding works for I have tested in the main computer and works flawlessly, and it's not from the dedicated server (or in this case XAMPP) for I'm using the exact same settings as in the main comp...

I understand (from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314882 and other sites) that XP Home has a built-in incoming connection limit (that is, for file sharing and the like) of five. XP Pro, evidently, has 10.

I'm using XP Home, and I'm hitting the limit. From research, it seems this may not be get-around-able. What I am trying to do, though, is to view the current connections on my "server" computer -- the one that is hitting the ceiling.

So since we're maxing out at five connections, how can I find out what five users/processes are taking up those slots? Is there some switch for the "net" command, or some other way I can monitor (and even control) those connections? It bugs me to see that all the slots are taken up, yet I can't tell who is using them!

I got a job on this company, and I'm kind of a network admin...but to be honest, theres a lot of things I honestly have no idea what they're all about, like this one for example.

The thing is....my company sends out PC's stores, departments, malls, restaurants, and places like that, and my companys connects to those pcs through a dial-up connection...(I still don't know why they aren´t using internet for that....probably has to do with clients not wanting to use LAN's in ther places of work....I don't know...... I live and work outside the States so...).....anyway, I'm the one responsible for setting up the pcs we ship out and everything, and also, configuring those pcs so that we can connect to them....but it turns out, after I install a normal modem (ill get back to u with models and everything) I try to connect to them with no luck, but when I use that same pc and modem (the one I couldnt connect to) and try to connect to another pc, voila! it works!.....so I'm guessing that these "faulty" modems can connect to other pcs but don't accept incoming connections.....I've tried a lo of things like using HyperTerminal to set the ATS0=1 so that the modem accepts automatically after 1 ring....or so I thought so.....and nothing works.

With problems like this it's best to just leave the Homegroup on all machines then create a new Homegroup and rejoin from all machines.

I'm getting a yellow icon at the bottom of uTorrent all the time. I have uTorrent 1.7.5, a Linksys WRK54G router, a WG111v2 wireless USB adapter, and NOD32 antivirus. I used to have Sygate Firewall Pro, but I uninstalled it. I have set up a static IP and forwarded my port in my router setup options. I have tried enabling and disabling UPnP port mapping in both my router options and in uTorrent (it seems like I download faster when it is disabled in uTorrent), but the yellow icon was still there. I have disabled Windows Firewall. I have reset my router to factory settings and then forwarded the port again but it didn't work. My computer that is not working properly is on a wireless connection. I CAN still download stuff, but I notice that is is slower than when that icon is not there. I have used the uTorrent port tester, but it fails. I have tried uninstalling NOD32, but the yellow icon still comes up.

Can anyone tell me what to try next? I've searched on Google for a very long time but I've found nothing that completely fixed the problem.

Thanks in advance.

I recently moved house to a flat where I now have an adsl wireless router. Ever since I installed it its been major problems for me, my speeds are terrible takes ages to load a webpage and days to download anything. Also I have tried to stream to my apple tv through the use of airplay mirroring but this again doesn't work and an error code appears every time which I then looked up and it says its to do with my firewall blocking incoming connections. I have gone to my routers settings to try change this and it says to select the options by clicking the radio buttons however they do not exist on the page as you can see on the screenshot below. So here I am and Help! lol Much appreciated in advance.

what speed are you paying the ISP for ?

Dear BleepingComputer,

Thank you for taking your time to help me with these issues I am having with a new installation of Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
I installed approx 2 1/2 days ago on a formated drive. Everything was operating fine untill lastnight. WHen I noticed
firefox and ie alike were asking me to login to google-analytics and every stat based server for any website. Anything
that seems to collect data, I was asked to login to. WIth the normal popup windows asking for login/pass to a secure area.
I have also noticed by runing netstat a few times that I have a http server running on my computer i belive it goes by
"nginx" or something very similar. Aslo a lite SQL server seems to run randomly. Not sure where that came from. And tons of
errors within my event logs. Any and all help that you could give would be much appriciated. Once again thank you
for your time. I will post the logs as asked.

PS. gmer.exe ran but without any of the system, section, IAT/EAT, Devices, Modules, Proccesses, Threads, or Libraries checked.
they are greyed out. Reguardless of ran as an administrator or reg user. Thanks.

OS: Windows 7 SP1
Some of this post was, I guess incorrectly posted under another topic:
The content of that post has been pasted here:
I have a Linux PC acting as a gateway/router for the Windows PC. Under normal conditions and when the Windows PC is not connected to the Linux PC there are various unsolicited incoming connection attempts.
Whenever I enable the NIC on the Windows PC, the unsolicited attempts increase significantly. There are no internet servicing applications running.
When a bittorrent or p2p application starts, specifically utorrent, there are attempts to connect via standard private IANA IP addresses.
That, I believe might be specific vulnerabilities in those particular applications but the attempt to connect when there are no internet soliciting applications running leads me to believe there is an infected executable acting as a server, perhaps a botnet.
I understand that there could be stragglers left over from previously open connections with these applications but I have turned off these services for at least 72 hours. The connections are not coming to the ports that I've reserved for those applications, they're coming into typically known vulnerable ports.
Whenever utorrent is running there are hundreds of non-stop DNS lookups, I don't remember this ever occurring before. Is this normal? It seems... Read more

Hi, this thread here is being posted in relation to the topic here in which I was kindly directed to this part of the forums: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1971053To outline the issue once again, sometimes my internet cuts out randomly for everything, not just my PC. When this happens (when it is reconnecting) my firewall sees and blocks alot of incoming Windows Host Process Connections. I am unsure if this is supposed to happen.I will post a DDS log. I tried to run GMER, but I recieve the error upon opening that: "C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified", and when I try to run a scan I get "C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process" (being used by what?) I suppose that this happens because I am using Windows 7 64-bit and there may be compatibility issues? Here's my DDS log. I will PM whoever is helping me with the DDS "Attatch Log" if you request it.

Hi guys this issue is doing my head in.

This happened to me before a few weeks ago, I reinstalled and after about a week the problem is back.

The Issue: After a restart of the computer the firewall will NOT turn on, in the control panel it tells me to reset to default settings (1 Button) upon clicking does nothing.
In services.msc all other required services are running (Base filter etc.) the windows firewall is not running.
I attempt to manually start it and an error message pops up "Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5."

So I did some research and microsoft told me it was an error with permissions, so I tried their fix it and other manual fixes with no luck what so ever.

What I think may of caused this, the BIOS clock is set correctly but on a fresh windows install it thought the time/date was wrong. It was stuck in 2008. I manually changed this, restarted fine and nothing went wrong for 2 weeks.

I'm pulling my hair out here guys, any solutions?

A:Win7 Firewall Service not starting, blocking ALL incoming connections

There is something wrong with your system. More then likely some deep hidden virus of some type or there is a hardware fault.

If the BIOS Real Time Clock is set correctly and the CMOS battery is still good then the OS will pick up that time and date and all you should need to change is the Time Zone setting to your location. After that it should not change. If it is then there is something on your PC that is causing the change.

If you didn't to a Clean Wipe of the drive when you reinstalled whatever caused this problem the first time got left over and is infecting your computer again.

Look at this to Clean your drive and then Reinstall.

Since updating to Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit (latest version), in File Explorer listed under Computer I see my other PC's but I no longer see devices like my Synology NAS etc. All PC's and devices are connected using ethernet cables via switches.

The devices still appear in File Explorer on my other Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit (latest version) PC under Computer so the problem seems to be on the first PC rather than my Asus router.

I just tried putting the name of the devices (\\diskstation etc) in the address bar of File Explorer and with one of the devices I got error 0x80004005 so I ran the trouble shooter and got this error:-

Problem found
The remote device or resource won't accept the connection               Detected            !
Detailed Information
The device or resource (FOXSAT-HDR) is not set up to accept connections on port "The File and printer sharing (SMB)".

I've tried disabling AVG virus software, Windows Firewall and my Asus Router firewall but it makes no difference
sfc /scannow was OK

The Network Adapter has had the latest driver installed.
