Unable to access remote machine after network upgrade

Q: Unable to access remote machine after network upgrade

Our networks have Mac OSX 10.4 Tiger computers.
Before our company did the switch and router upgrades, I am able to access a remote machine at IP (altered IP for posting)

After traceroute, I get these results for good and bad machines for comparison.

Good machine:

Preferred Solution: Unable to access remote machine after network upgrade

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.)


Hey guys and gals,
I am encountering an unusual issue that I have run out of ideas. Let me explain...

I have four machines on a home network and things have been running great. All of a sudden (as far as I cannot tell what might have changed), my primary machine has encountered some strange issues. For instance:

1) Windows firewall settings were disabled (as in entirely grayed out so I could not enable or disable the windows firewall)
2) Unable to access machine via vnc from other machines on network
3) Unable to ping machine via vnc other machine on network
4) Cannot run Synergy
5) Cannot copy files to other network drives

My primary machine is acting as though all access has been terminated as far as incoming packets. I was able to restore the windows firewall settings and thus disable the windows firewall. I have been running Trend Micro Internet Security Suite 12 for the last year, which is my AV and Firewall. I have ensured all applications and ports are in the exclusions list for the firewall and I have port forwarding setup correctly. I can access every other machine (except my primary machine) from any machine on the network.

It seems as though I was hit with spyware or a virus, almost as if it has disabled some services or other item. I have ran scans for spyware using Spybot, A-Squared, and Trend Micro and all comes back clean. I have ran scans for a virus and all comes back clean.

I have exhausted all my knowledge and resources. Any ideas?

Issue: I have a Windows 7 client that will not activate via the command slmgr.vbs /ato nor through the Volume Activation Management Tool.

Error: 0x800706BA Unable to connect to the WMI service on the remote machine
Troubleshooting:  I have added the workstation via ip address and tried to activate since I read that it could be a DNS issue. I also ran a script that was supposed to repair the WMI.  Neither tries fixed it.

As someone who is working towards a bachelors degree in computer networking, I have a half decent understanding (or so I thought) of how the internet works. But today... today my mind was blown. I knowingly downloaded something for a game that was a bit sketchy, fully aware that there was a 90% chance a keylogger came packaged with it, didn't concern me that much. I tend to be a bit reckless with my machine because just about every virus I've ever come across I can take care of with relative ease (and heck virus removal offers a weird thrill). Throw in a Hiren's boot CD, run trusty old MBAM, TDSS killer etc. and smash malware with an iron fist. Not to mention I tend to re install my OS every two months because I make such a mess of my file system I figure its best I start anew, and continue to dump everything to desktop.
So here's the story of what happened today, I'm playing my game and having a blast when all of a sudden it closes. I figure "Hey, the game just crashed that's pretty lame". Upon attempt to run the game again and log in I was confronted with a "Password is incorrect" message, at this point I knew what was going on, got keylogged and someone was in the process of trying to cause havoc with the account. I giggled a bit, then proceeded to go to the website and push a password reset request through my email, since the email had a different password I wasn't too concerned. Upon logging into my email to confirm the password reset... Read more

I have a home network set up, with my primary computer being a WinXP Pro machine. I used to have a Win95 and a Win98 machine hooked up in the network as well. I was previously able to remote desktop into my WinXP machine without an issue. I am using the Windows remote desktop feature, but I'm using a non-standard port, with the port open on my router, and my WinXP machine. Last week, I replaced the Win98 machine with a Win2k machine, and I am now not able to remote desktop into my XP machine. Is there something I need to do on the 2k machine? Could it be blocking remote access to my XP machine somehow?

As part of our usual patch Tuesday process we download the patches from Windows update and ran them on a group of test computers. After installing the patches from 10/9/2018 - 4459922, 4462923, 890830 - Sept, we can no longer access the administrative
share C$ on the remote machine. According to what I could find I needed to install 3177467 first (which wasn't available in the downloads until today 10/10/2018). I installed 3177467, which is some sort of stack update, and rebooted. Still cannot see the C$
on machines were the patch was tested. I tried to reinstall 4459922 and 4462923 after installing 3177467 but both patches indicated they were already installed. I uninstalled 4459922 but could not find 4462923 to uninstall.

When I connect my desktop (running windows xp sp2) to my di-614+ via cat-5 cable, I am unable to get access to the router itself. I can't even ping the router. I've tried installing a new NIC, uninstalling sp2, repairing windows xp installation, updating to the latest firmware the the 614+, spent approximately 9 hours on the phone with D-Link, and almost the same with Microsoft. Both microsoft and D-Link tell me that the router is the problem, even after I tell them that I can wire my laptop (running same software and update) and it works fine. I can also connect wirelessly with my laptop with no problems. I can connect the Desktop directly to the cable modem and connect to the internet just fine. When connected to the router, I cannot pull and ip address (gives windows default) and I can't even ping the router.....I/we (tech support) went over so many things to try and resolve this issue, I'm sure I missed several points, so please query me for more info if needed. I'm getting berated by my 14 year old daughter so PLEASE HELP!!!

I have been working on this problem for 3 weeks now.

I have a network with two locations connected by a TLS. Each location has a Fortinet firewall .10 & .65. Both firewalls are wide open internally.

For troubleshooting purposes I am only using two identical Windows 7 machines, .37 & .89. On my .37 machine I cannot see/connect/file share with any computers on the .64 subnet. On the .89 machine I can see/connect/file share with all computers on the .1 and .64 subnets. I have exported the firewall policy on the .89 machine and imported it to the .37 machine. I have the same settings on both machines for McAfee. Network Discovery and File Sharing are turned on at both locations.

This problem is a weird one for me. It DID work at one time and I have a program that connects to a share folder in the .64 network. That program still works without problem except we are unable to do a new install for it on any machine in the .1 subnet because it is unable to see the shared folder now. I am also able to ping back and forth on the network.

Both workstations are in the same domain. All IPs are statically assigned. I am stumped... Any ideas?

My facilites manager at work installed vpn access on my acer laptop with Windows Vista Basic. He also installed (or enabled, not sure how that works)my remote desktop connection. Whenever we test this at work, I am able to access my work desktop from my laptop no problem while connected to wired internet. I was unable to access the wirless whatsoever at work using acer's basic wireless settings. Purchased USB Wireless adapter and was finally able to access work wireless. Then had no problem connecting to VPN while on work's wireless and no problem remoting in to my desktop. When I try this from my wireless connection at home, I am able to connect to the VPN; however, am unable to access my desktop and am unable to ping my desktop as well. I have tried turning off firewall, tried setting the firewall to allow remote desktop access, etc. to no avail. My work has been unable to help me with this problem as well as my internet provider. I also tried connecting my laptop directly to internet at home using ethernet cable, am still uable to remote to desktop.

I am setting up a computer for a user in an office. The user can access all her required network share folders from her existing computer and from any other computer in the office. The computer we are setting up for her is denied access to the two network
shares that she needs to be able to access. We are able to map the drives but get "You do not have permission to access
\\computer\folder. Contact your network administrator" We are able to access shared folders on the same machine that contains the folders for which access is denied.

There are two shared folders with this problem. One is on a domain server, the other is shared on a workstation. There is acess to other shared folders on either of these machines. Access is only denied to the folders that we need to map.
I have also tried logging on to the problem machine as another user with administrative privileges and get the same permission denied error message.
So it appears that the problem is on the Windows 7 machine not on the server since the problem is not experienced from any other computer on the network.

I have tried turning off the firewall, renaming the computer and logging on as a different user. We have also looked in Group Policy for any policy settings but didn't see anything obvious. I am not fully knowledgeable about Group Policy editing so I could
be overlooking something in Group Policy.
Would appreciate any help or suggestions for fixing this.

Hi guys,

I am facing an issue in our organization. One of our user in the organization has changed the settings such that I cannot ping the system. Similarly I can't even access the system through remote registry option or through Computer Management-->Connect to a Remote Computer. I am getting the error message "Computer_Name cannot be managed. The Network path was not found." I have the Domian Admin rights but I am unable to get information about this system. I have checked the windows firewall setting on his computer by asking him to show me the firewall settings but there is no such configuration that can prevent the form accessing the system.

Can you please help me out what could be the possible reason for this??

A:Unable to Ping the Machines and Access the Remote Registry

Many possible reasons; network cable unplugged, network adapter disabled/driver problem, changed ip address, dns record changed/deleted. Knowing what settings the user changed would be a good start at fixing this instead of starting with --> "is the computer on" etc.

Here is what we have going on, and could really use some help. First, I am a begiiner (somewhat-maybe a hair above beginner). System is a Dell xps8300, running Windows 7. 16 gb ram.

I don't know if we have several issues, or one that is affecting us in several ways.

This computer, which we have had since June 2011, could never get a good installation of adobe flash 10. Not with IE9 32 bit or 64. It has also been far more prone to picking up viruses than the dell laptop we bought at the same time and running Windows 7 64 bit as well.

About 3 months ago we picked up the internet security 2012 virus, but following the instructions on this site, we were able to get it off and return to normal operation--except we still couldn't install adobe flash 10. Two days ago we picked up the virus that created multiple popups for a windows disk error alert, and again using information on this site, I thought I cleared that infection and was able to restore our start menu items and file folder items.

But ever since this last infection, we get redirects (randomly) that take us to sites like yellow pages, and a couple other seemingly random sites. We cannot open the adobe.com site at all...we can open any other site we want, not adobe.com Tonight I tried to connect with Dell support and they were going to remote in, but no matter how we tried to set the connection up, we could never establish a connection.

Because of all the problems we have had, we have purchased the p... Read more

I am trying to access Remote Desktop Connection (RDP), but I cannot find it anywhere on my computer.

I went to Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications and it is not there. I also just looked under Accessories, and it is not there.

I also tried a search for mstsc.exe (the filename for RDP), and the search does not come up with anything.

I tried Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, and the file (RDP or mstsc) is not showing either.

I tried to download RDP from Windows, but while installing, I get an error message stating that RDP is already on my computer and it fails to install.

Can anyone help me on finding RDP or removing it so I can install it from Windows???

Synctoy is used to keep the Laptops in sync with the Desktop.

The Desktop has 2 users - "user 1" & "user 2" there are no passwords. There a 3 shared folders (everyone, full control), Users (public shares only), User1's Docs (user1 only) and User2's Docs(user2 only).

Laptop1 has "user1" only with password. There a 4 shares, 3 folders( everyone, full control) and Users (public folders only).

Laptop2 has "user2" only with password. There a 4 shares, 3 folders( everyone, full control) and Users (public folders only).

The Desktop and Laptop1 can access all permitted shares on all machines.

The Laptop1 displays Desktop's shares. The public shares can be accessed and user1's Docs ask for a login before being accessible. User2's Docs are blocked.

I work for a county government and we use the AS400 if anyone is familiar with that. Also each employee has a private folder on access to their department folder on a different server. I am trying to use a VPN to access the system from a laptop which I have recently upgraded from Win 98 to WinXp HE. The systems the county uses are Win 2000 Professional Edition. Our IT guy gave me the software to load and very simple directions to follow. Many people have used this same software and these directions to set up a VPN. The difference is they are using Win2000 and I am using XP.

The Software is Cisco VPN version 3.5. It is installed and I can connect and use the AS400 however, when I try to Login to our network server, I get the following:

the network connection could not be found
more help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2250

system error 53 has occurred
the network path was not found

The IT services guy has been helping me and he is way smarter than me. He is sure it is something in XP that isn't set right. He played with it all one afternoon and we couldn't get it fixed. Since then he hasn't had time to work on it and I thought I would try the Tech Support Guy Forum to see if anyone could help. He thinks it is just some simple setting that won't let the network drivers map. With Cisco you can't manually map the drivers. I tried that.

Used to work with out issue but for some reason now, even on my internal home network I'm not able to access the Mac from my Win 7 PC. Used to be able to access it from external also.

I have a dyndns account that is currently working and configured.

I am able to use VNC fine, as well as Google Chrome remote desktop app, and logmein. All internally and externally.

The router is set to a publice static IP assigned by my ISP.

I have my target machine configured on an internal static IP on my network.

I have made sure that port 3389 is forwarded via my router to the target machine static IP.

When I try accessing via Windows remote desktop I get a message that reads

Not sure what else could be preventing me from using this as it was before now. The reason I'm still still trying is that the Windows remote desktop worked far better than any other remote desktop solution.

I get crazy screen refresh lag using VNC to the point it's almost not worth using it. Even when used on my internal network.

Any help appreciated.

A:Windows Remote Desktop Unable to Access MAC From Internal or External

I am presuming that you have a static IP Address configured on the MAC? If not, you will need one.

The first thing I would do would be to download the latest version of the MS Remote Desktop and do a re-install of it:
Download Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.1 from Official Microsoft Download Centre

Have you tried using Logmein? I've found it to be very stable.

I got a new Win7 64 bit machine and it's great. Except that for some reason I can't load www.expedia.com. It's the only site I've tried to use that times out. Everything else on my network (all other pcs, phones, tablets) can load the webpage, but my new main machine experiences a timeout error from just this ONE site. I've connected the machine directly to the modem, bypassing the router and I get the same error. I've reset everything. Disabled AV & Firewall, Can't be the router since other devices connect through it and I have the same issue without using the router. Pining from the affected machine also results in a timeout.

problem just started today, I have 2 PCs hooked up to a netgear wndr3700 router to a cable modem. All of a sudden I can't get the paypal webpage to come up (internet explorer cannot display the webpage) on either pc hooked to the router wired or wireless (I tried with my iphone and it won't work either on wifi, but connects to paypal using 3g cellular, bypassing my network) I did a search on this site (http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/858146-solved-cant-access-paypal.html) and checked my hosts file and it has just what its supposed to have, identical to the microsoft website, unless I'm not looking at it wrong or something as there is no large list on it. here's a log of one pc, (I also checked the router and there are no blocked sites listed there, but as anything going thru the router is affected I'm wondering how to scan THAT & have yet to try to eliminate it as a possiblilty by connecting a pc directly to the cable modem without it):

Failure to ping is almost always a firewall problem, probably about 99.9% of the time if the link works.

Many ISP's block port 80 incoming, that could be the issue here.

How do I set up a network to permit remote file access and printing? Both computers are running XP home and the router supports one ethernet connection and one wireless. Would appreciate a fairly simple explanation that could be understood even by a senior citizen!

A:Network remote access and printing

Going to need a bit more info.

Firstly what have u setup at the moment? From your comments i cant tell if you have:-
1) Just 1PC connected via the router at one time
2) 2 PC's connected, and you have 1 free wireless + ethernet connection on router
3) 2 PC's connected, one via wireless, one via ethernet port.

Also what is your router make and model?
What printer are you using (make/model) and how have u got this connected at the moment?

I am wondering if there is some way to allow a remote computer access to my home network as if it was local. I have some friends that live out of state and we want to be able to play certain games together and it would be easiest to play with LAN.

I have looked in VPN software, but that is more like creating a secure network within another network. I am wanting my friend's computers to be able to access my network as if it is just another client behind our router. Is this possible?

A:Allow remote access to home network

That is what a VPN is for. It creates a secure tunnel to your network to put his computer on your network. Alot of people use Hamachi to accomplish this task. You could also use Windows built-in VPN server capability.

But if it is just a game then just forward the appropriate ports on your router to your PC and play the game.

I work at an office with a network set up between 4 computers and have PC1 able to remotely access PC2. They haven't been able to get the usual IT guy to come in and look at the PCs, and since I know the most about computers in the office, I've been "volunteered" to fix the problem. When my boss tries to access the network from home with his laptop, he has access to PC1, but when he tries to use the link from PC1 to PC2 with his laptop, the connection won't work. If any of you can help me I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Never mind. I figured it out. He was using the wrong user name. I have much greater respect for all the tech guys out there.

Hello HJT Team Member,

I run a small business out of my home. I have all of my clients personal information. I am not "Techy" at all. We have 6 comupters networked together. All of these are computers are in my home. I recently had to fire an employee. The last straw was, I caught him e-mailing a list of our contacts to a competitor.
Strange things have been happening. !. when I click on my Address Bar, it blinks & bounces around.
2. We will type notes on our files & when we come back to the file. The notes have been changed or are
no longer there.
3. Our system runs very slow now, but we have tons of memory left.

I told a friend, that is a Mortgage Broker about this. He asked if we had anyone set up for "Remote Access" I told him no one was allowed to work remotely. He told me that he had ran into challenges & he went to a site call "bleepingcomputer.com" My friend recommended that I use that site & get help. He also walked me through what he knew about remote accesses. Sure enough, all of our computers had remote access set up on them, including my personal computer, that is located in a separate part of our home.

I am very nevous about all of this, but I haven't got a clue what to do. I would like to make sure no one is able to access our system & that there is no malware infecting our system now. Can someone please HELP.

Have you contacted the authorities about the theft?The slowness could be due to malware or lack of maintenance such as cleanup of temporary files, logs,etc. Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner.

Right, I have a problem trying to externally remote desktop into a PC within an office network using Windows 7 Pro.

Ports have been open on the firewall/router for Remote Desktop and each of the PC's static IP addresses have been assigned for it to port forward to the Remote Desktop port. Also assigned are the users who are able to remote into their computers. All PCs are on and are also on Windows 7 Pro.

Unfortunately I can not connect to any of the PCs. I can however connect to the server with no problems and even connect to the other PCs using the Small Business Server 2008 control panel.

Is there anything else that's missing in setting up Remote Desktop that I haven't tried?

Hi techguys,

I am running Windows XP SP1, AMD Athlon XP 2600+, with 1GB or RAM. I recently purchased an X-micro bluetooth adapter. What I want to do transfer some freeware applications to my Samsung D500 cellular phone.

I access my Network Connection, and choose to create an advanced connection to another computer directly, using COM5 (the port set aside for bluetooth). When I get to the Network Connection Wizard's Host or Guest Page, I select my computer as host, and I click Next. The computer thinks for a bit, and eventually, I get presented with an error saying "Incoming Connections depends on the Routing and Remote Access service which was unable to start.". I checked the Event Viewer and got this message:

"The Routing and Remote Access service terminated with service-specific error 340 (0x154)."

I have checked on the Internet for solutions, the majority say that I should check that NetBIOS is enabled in my TCP/IP network settings. This I have done, and it is indeed enabled. The problem still persists. I am unsure what other services Routing and Remote Access depends on.

A friend mentioned that it might indeed be a problem with SP1, and that I should reinstall it. This seems a rather drastic solution though.

Would anyone kindly help me with this problem? I would be most grateful.

PS: In Event Viewer, I also found another error but I am unsure how it is related to the above problem. The error is for perflib and says:

Here comes my problem:

- I have one Windows 7 Ultimate and 2 Windows 7 Professional in Virtual machines.
- I have created a user test with the password test on all three machines.
- The "test user" is member of Administrators on all three computers.

PC1: Win 7 Ultimate
PC2: Win 7 Pro
PC3: Win 7 Pro

On PC1: \\PC2\c$ --> Not working
On PC1: \\PC3\c$ --> Not working

On PC2: \\PC1\c$ --> Working
On PC2: \\PC3\c$ --> Not working

On PC3: \\PC1\c$ --> Working
On PC3: \\PC2\c$ --> Not working

Other things behave the same. E.g. "shutdown -m \\machine"
Seems like my PC1 has something set up different. But I can't find it.
I checked the "Advanced sharing settings" and Local Security Policies.

EDIT1: \\PCx\Users is working well in any combination.
EDIT2: And if I remove admin rights from "test" on PC1, the others cannot access
c$ on PC1 any longer - as expected.

So the issue seems to be somehow related to the security rights of user "test" on
PC2 and PC3. Seems as test does not have the same rights there, although being
member of "Administrators".
Any ideas are highly appreciated!

And last but not least: A friend of mine has the same strange thing.
But he has one Win 7 Pro and one Win 7 Home Premium. Access from one
machine to the other is fine. But not vice versa.

3 machines involved.

Windows XP, SP3 w/2 hard drives (Machine C)

All machines can access each other's C drive.
Both Win7 machines (A & B) can access 2nd drive on XP machine (C).
Neither B or C can access 2nd drive on Win7 machine (A).
Message: ...drive is not accessable. You may not have permission to use the network resource.
Followed a similar thread and checked all permissions locations.
All permissions show shared in every way possible.
Had no success setting up Homegroup to do it, so removed it.

I apologize if this isn't the right forum for this, but I need help and I hope all hope is not lost. Let me first explain what I am trying to do. I reinstall or reimage machine for a few local rent to own stores, it pays OK, but it is very time consuming. Enter Symantec Ghost Console 8.0xx. I have used this at my day job to ghostcast an image out to 1-50 computers at a time but they have always be running XP Pro (because its an office environment) I figured that I could implement this software with all of the systems I get for my spin off job, but all these machines have XP home... here is where my problem starts. when I try and send out a remote client install, I get the error
"Failed to install:
\\SHOWPLACE (20): Add logon right: Error when opening security policy - the computer might be running Windows 95, 98, ME or XP Home, or the specified account does not have sufficient administrative rights on that machine"

I have search for adding logon rights, but XP home isnt setup like PRO and I HOPE there is a way that I can allow an external computer to install its client-side software so that it will allow me to take an image of any give XP home machine...

I ask because I know from past experiences, that there are people in this forum who undoubtedly know XP in and out better than myself...

So am I screwed, or is there a way around this so that I can install the client side client software and take my images over the network.... BTW I know I co... Read more

Hi folks,

When i double-click on the machine in Win7, I get an "Windows cannot access \\NOTEBOOK - you do not have permission" error. The other way round, everything works fine - from the XP machine, I can do all the things i want...

Some Information on the XP machine: Win XP SP3 Home, Avast Anti-Virus (as on the Win7 machine), Windows built-in firewall.

Any suggestions?

Hello, I am trying to configure a VPN to connect to my home network so that I can access files on my home computer whilst at the office. I have succeeded in being able to access a folder on my home desktop which I added using "add network location" on my laptop. However, while I'm connected through this VPN, I am using my home internet connection, going in through the router and then back out to the internet. So, is there a possibility of only using the VPN when I access the files on my home network and use the office internet for browsing... etc? Is this VPN configuration efficient or are there better ways to get access to files on my home PC remotely. Also, using this method I believe my router forwards all traffic on the VPN to my main home PC which assigns my laptop an IP. Is there anyway that I could just log into the router so that I was just another computer on the home network. As is I can only see files on the main home PC but it would be nice as well to have access to my HTPC.

A:VPN Configuration for Remote Access to Home Network

You can enable offline files that will sync up docs every time you get back to your home network, but if you have GBs and GBs of file, may not be efficient.

Windows Live Sync
from MS, can sync all of you files and folder between 2 computers free and efficiently. Very awesome for someone who has a PC and laptop.

Dropbox is also another program that can do it.

I would need to hear more about how you are using the VPN connection and what hardware/method.... if it is just for accessing files, I would use one of the 2 above, preferably Windows Live Sync.

So I met a co worker who pretended to be friends with me. I invited him over and let him use the computer while I was away to the gas station. I suspect that he did something and gained remote access to my computer.

I found out about it when I checked my wireless connections on my router and found his name on the network : Steve's - Iphone and a couple of unfamiliar connections. I then opened my task manager and ended some tasks I thought were possibly infected. When I went back to the wireless status, the unfamiliar connections disappeared. Then few minutes later my mouse froze and this guy messaged me talking trash. I checked the wireless connections and they were back. Right now I have my wireless turned off and I think I am safe.

I use Norton firewall + kaspersky internet security and my virus definitions have always been up to date, but I cannot detect anything. I also set my options to permit only MAC authenticated computers and changed my wireless WPA/WPA2 key, but everytime I turn my wireless on, this guy somehow is connected to my network.
