Preferred Solution: remotely use vlc on local network

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.)

A: remotely use vlc on local network

Which is it, local network or one network to another and if the latter, is it via the Internet or still local?

Remote on a local network is a snap. After assigning a static local I.P. to all server machines if you haven't already (not needed if you use machine name instead), share the folders you want to serve and just open them across the network.

I am currently using Remote Administrator to connect to a computer at work. I am looking for a way to print from a program running on my office computer to my home printer. What is the easiest way to do this? I can't email or move the document to my home computer so that is ruled out and I can't use Windows Remote desktop. Is there any other software that will do what I am asking? Thanks.

I want to add a user to their PC's local power users group so they can do certain things on the PC that they can't do now. I know that in NT this could be done, and although I don't remember off hand how to do it in NT I know that if I were dealing with NT I could fumble my way through it. How do you do this in W2K in an AD environment?
 

A:Remotely adding user to local group...

The NT way would be to place a batch file on the PC that you want the user in that local group. The batch file would contain the command "Net user <username> <localgroup> /add" (maybe not exact syntax) but you could test it to see if it works in W2K. If not there may be a tool in the resource kit.

Dear all,
I am currently based in London. I have an issue with a staff's laptop based in Africa. We built the laptop and shipped it to them. As part of the build we put on our standard administrator account and then made a local account as they are not connected to our domain.

The user in this Africa office changed the local password of his account and now can't remember it therefore making the PC unable to be logged into. I do not want to tell him our administrator password because it's the same for all our PCs worldwide. I have researched many things to try and connect to the PC but it is now possible.

I have tried:

1. Browsing to the machine from another pc on the network using explroer and I can see the C Drive.
2. I tried running this command but I just keep getting error 1219: net use \\pcname\ipc$ /usercname\administrator *
3. RDP will not work, it just won't connect.
4. The PC I am using is Windows 8 home edition and not business which I notice is a problem as computer management does not have users and groups it appears. The remote pc is Windows 7 Enterperise.

So at the moment I just have a laptop that is stuck at the login screen.

On all XP machines there is a Local Security Settings plugin that allows you to Deny users logins -

Admininstrative Tools > Local security settings > Local policies > User Rights Assignment > Deny log on locally

Is there any way to modify this setting on a remote computer short of having to Remote Desktop to it and bring it down? Nowhere in the box is any option to connect to a remote computer.

I guess this could be put in the XP section.

Hey guys, you know how you can go into the Control Panel, Network Connections, right-click on "Local Area Connection" and set it to disabled, is there a way to do that on a remote PC without taking remote-control of it?

Using a remote control program like VNC, etc. isn't an option. Needs to be done via command console or some other third party software that has that kind of control.

Or if there's a way to remotely disable the NIC from device manager would be another option.

Any help would be much appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Remotely disable Local Area Connection

if the remote computer is on the same network as you, and you have administrative rights to that computer you can....

right click "My Computer" from your computer then choose manage, then make sure Computer Management (local) is highlighted then choose Action then "connect to another computer" select the computer then highlight Device Manager and disable the NIC from there.

A:Remotely Connecting to Home Network?

Remote access software like pcAnywhere let you take over a computer that is on your network. What you see on the screen is what would be seen on the remote computer. If that is good enough then programs like pcAnywhere, RADMIN, NetOP or VNC would work fine. Be aware there a differences in performance, stability and features between them.

If you want to access your home network as if it was a LAN, you would need VPN for that. You would see the remote VPN server as another mapped drive like on a regular network. XP Pro has VPN server built in but only allows one connection at a time.

Good afternoon everyone,

Situation:
Have 60 Win2k pc's in our department - these include 2 Student PC Labs and then faculty PC's. Everyone will be printing to different printers. I am going to set up a print server and want to be able to configure all PC's remotely with the correct network printers.

This way I can set up the 2 labs to print to the network printers located in the respective labs and faculty will print to a printer in our main office. I also do not want to include anything in the logon scripts, as we do not use them here. Ideally I want each PC set up with the correct network printer, no matter who logs on, as the lab PC's have numerous different students logging on to them daily.

I came across the following command line utility:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry

With the proper switches, I have been able to set up a network printer while logged onto that PC, but can not figure out a way to run this command and have it map the network printer on a remote PC.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Ok, on my home network, I already have it so that from any computer, you can map a network drive via "\\comp-name\shared-folder

and remotely, it should work like this: "\\ipaddress\comp-name\shared-folder
HOWEVER, my home network is on a linksys firewall, and each computer only has a generic DHCP IP address. I do know my REAL IP address (WAN), but that doesn't matter because it won't find my computer because of the firewall. UNLESS, I made one the networked computers on DMZ host, but that is way too insecure.

What I want to see if its possible, is use PORT filtering. I already filter a few ports so that I can host games even on the firewall. Is it possible to set aside a random port just for remote networking.

and then would the command to connect be something like this:
"\\ipaddress:filteredport\comp-name\shared-folder
??

How would I do this?????????/

It stared with one of the computers in my house, on our network. The computer was running windows xp, and at the time hadn't been updated for a while. (Might have been part of the problem.) When the owner of that computer was playing a game he noticed keyboard buttons being pressed. The mouse wasn't being moved at all though. 
 
It was just the WASD keys at first, so he thought his keyboard was shorting out. Then a lot of other characters were being pressed, as if someone was trying to type words. So he selected a chat area and it typed the name of a TV show. So he immediately disconnected the Internet, and the typing stopped. At this point we assumed he was being remotely controlled. He had downloaded some rom editing programs, and he figured that was what gave someone access. He wiped the computer and reinstalled windows and now everything seems fine. 
 
My question is, since the typing stopped when the Internet was disconnected, does that mean it was 100% a remote controller issue? And if so, since it was only his computer being messed with, I was on mine at the same time when it happened, is it safe to say it was an issue with what he downloaded? Instead of someone hacking our network? Also, even though he reformatted, and our computers don't share any files or info between them (we are on the same network, but it is password protected and not broadcasting) should I be worried about my computer?

Hello,
I'm currently in the process of testing/deploying IE11 in our environment and I've begun testing on the IE11 Enterprise Site List manager.
I've read that there are a few different ways to configure the XML file to apply via GPO per the article below.  HTTP, Local Network, Local File. (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Dn640699.aspx)
In my isolated testing I've chosen to use the local file method which is very easy to setup and use on a testing machine.
It looks like we have the flexibility to choose how we apply the XML file, and I was curious what the best options are and why?  Also are there examples of each setup being used and the benefits/downsides to each?
Here's the options that I can see using:
1. HTTP - setup an IIS website to host the XML file.
2. Local Network (UNC) - setup a UNC path on our DFS where we store the current XML file and users would have read only access to that location.
3. Local File - We could just deploy the XML file via SCCM package/application when updates to the list are required.
Could anyone please point me towards some articles, etc, explaining the pro's and cons of these methods and why I might want to choose one over the other?  I'm leaning towards just using a DFS share and option #2 because it doesn't require us to maintain
an IIS site for it but I am curious to hear if there might be any downsides to this method, or benefits to going with another method.
Thanks!

Just joined the forum, so I have this is the correct subforum for my question. Here goes.

Back during the XP days, in a domain setting, you could browse to a remote computer and view what printers were installed on that machine, local printers via usb/etc AND printers who's queue reside on a print server.

I cannot do that in a Windows 7 environment. Win7 clients, Win 2008 R2 print server.

Turned off the firewall on the clients and server.
Put test machines and print server in an OU that doesn't get any Group Policy.
Turned on Network Discovery
Turned on file/print sharing
Turned on public folder sharing
(there's no antivirus, 3rd party firewall, etc in place).

On my test machine, I installed a printer. \\printserver\testprinter

On my work machine I browsed to my test machine by opening Windows Explorer: \\testmachine
Click on 'View remote printer'
I can see the default local printers (Fax, Microsoft XPS Doc Writer, etc) but I do NOT see the printer I installed who's queue is on the print server.

I've been googling and testing this all day. Is there something I'm missing here?

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

HI,

I have installed server 2003 on a small network and created a domain that is the same as the public domain name (ie the companies website).

This is now causing a problem because when i type in the public address (for example www.company.com) it is trying to resolve it locally - because the local domain name is also company.com.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get round this problem?

A:problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

add 'local.' to the internal domain or change it altogether.

Your public domain should not have any connection into your private infrastructure,
but you may have references from private->public; not very common.

Over a two day period I spent four hours with Netgear premium support to resolve an issue I thought would take them ten seconds. I added a device to my network with a DHCP reservation and used port forwarding to make it accessible from outside my network. The device is an Arduino microcontroller with an ethernet shield which uploads data from a sensor that I monitor remotely. According to many Arduino Forum posts I read, I should be able to enter into the address bar my device IP address, a colon, and the port I have forwarded for it. For example: 168.192.1.10:8080 and see the data my device is reporting. That didn't work.

Finally Netgear gave me a web adress that resembles 76.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx and that works. Nothing in this address resembles my network, my device, or the forwarded port. I asked them how they came up with that but clearly they didn't want to take the time to explain. I asked, what if I want to do this again in the future- do I have to go through all this again? They said "yes, call us again and have a nice day." I have to go back to my router settings and make sure they didn't just dump me into a DMZ!

So my questions to you sages is what's the significance of this address that starts with 76, why is there so little out there about it? Does my ISP have control over this or does my router? And most of all how do I achieve this seemingly simply remote access myself?

Thank you!

I would like to start using a VPN service for better privacy while online. However, I have read that using a VPN client will block the local area network, is this true? I use a HTPC with a large RAID array to share media with my other devices and I want to still be able to access my local files via network drives while using VPN to browse the web. Is this possible?

My current setup is the HTPC/file server, xbox360, and a workstation PC connected via ethernet to a dd-wrt router. The dd-wrt router connects via WiFi to a primary router plugged into the modem. The primary router also supplies WiFi to some phones. I have WiFi adapters for the 2 computers if that helps, but I uninstalled them when I couldn't figure out how to get Windows to separate local file sharing over the faster ethernet and internet over WiFi.

I'm pretty inexperienced at networking, but am willing to try anything to make this work. Thanks in advance for your help!

You'll have to do something called "split-tunneling" to access both the internet and LAN.
I don't know what operating system you have, and the steps to do this are different depending on the OS, so here are a few links to help you figure it out (I honestly have next to no experience in this area):

I posted a couple of days ago about my network access dropping from local & internet, to local, to no connection, after recently upgrading to vista.
I tried every solution othe people have posted on the net but my problem still persisted.
So last night I reinstalled vista and created a restore point after the 1st start-up. I was able to use the internet without interruption for over 5 hrs. Then this morning windows installed updates. After the updates were installed my problem started again. I went ahead and restored my computer to the 1st restore point, and now it is working fine.
My fix to this problem is to not install any updates. I know that it is not the proper fix, but for anyone as frustrated with vista as i am, this is a way to maintain your internet connection.
I am a newcomer to vista, but I found out that this problem has been happening to other for years. I can't understand why microsoft wont fix this problem.
If this post helps anyone else with the same problem, please reply with your story.

A:Local Network Fix

the problem with not updating vista is it leaves your operating system wide open to attack , thats exactly how conficker spread. An unpatched OS can make your firwall and AV next to useless

why dont you set your updates so they are not automatic , then pick the updates to install , install them one at a time run your pc for a while each time until you find the offending update

The fastest way -- FTPDMIN: Minimal ad-hoc file transfer Windows FTP server Windows 7 will alert you that it's listening on the FTP ports but that's what you want right? Make note of the IP address it's listening on and make sure that's the address on your local network you want.

Then just use your favorite FTP client in Ubuntu...

In the Windows Firewall, left pane, did you try to Troubleshoot my network or Restore Defaults.

Also verify in Device Manager if any problems showing up for your Network Adapter and are your drivers up to date.

This just happened out of nowhere yesterday morning. My roommate was using her laptop with no issues until suddenly the connection cut out. She tried reconnecting, but had no luck so she waited, still no signal. She was able to see our network name but it would not allow her to connect to it. Same thing when I tried my laptop. I could see it scanning wi-fi and showed available connections including our own, but it wouldn't let me connect.

The desktop in our home office has internet. The modem is showing all the proper lights flashing, indicating there is ethernet, DSL and internet.

When we open our laptops and get a signal even for a brief moment, it kills the connection on the desktop and all lights on the modem go off, except the power light which starts flashing slowly. Totally loses connection. As soon as we close the laptop, the connection comes back on the desktop.

I noticed that the icon in the tray that indicates connectivity (the two computer monitors flashing blue back and forth) looks different than normal. There is no little globe in front of them, there are just two monitors and there is usually a globe showing internet access. So I clicked it and it says we're connected to "Network 7" Access: local. So I took a screen shot of this.

What is going on, can someone help me out? I have no idea what to do but we need internet on the laptops. If you need any more information from me, feel free to ask! Thanks!
