Virtual XP can ping host but cannot access host resources via workgroup

Q: Virtual XP can ping host but cannot access host resources via workgroup

I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, and have installed the Virtual XP mode. A long time ago Virtual XP was fully running, with access to host resources (drives etc). But my system underwent some software changes, and then Virtual XP could no longer
access the host resources. After trying (unsuccessfully) all the tricks found on several forums, I decided to uninstall then reinstall Virtual XP, which I have just done. But I still can't access host drives. Here's how Virtual XP is set
Workgroup name is set to the same as my host (confirmed in 'My Computer'/Properties/Name);
Networking 'Adapter 1' set to my host's NIC; I have assigned a fixed IP address to the Virtual XP (this has worked previously; all devices on my Win7 network have fixed addresses, for good reason).

Integration Features has ticks in the boxes for those host drives I want to access from VXP.
I can successfully ping the host, via name or IP address; I can successfully ping web sites by name (e.g. 'yahoo.com'). But when I open Windows Explorer and open the 'My Network Places' tree, it opens down to the name of my host workgroup, but
when I click on that workgroup name, after several seconds it pops up an error box saying: "<workgroupname> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. <blah blah>. The service has not been
Any suggestions on how to get access to my host drives?
Thanks, Daniel

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 just installed windows 8.1 pro on an MSI z97 pc mate motherboard with I5 3.3 ghz processor, 16 gb ddr3 1600 MHz ram, with embedded realtek pcie gbe NIC. I checked and found that hardware virtualization is enabled by default in the BIOS.

I tried to set up a virtual switch using the latest bios and drivers from MSI. I created a virtual switch choosing the external option and the share with host OS option. I then connected to the VM. No network connectivity on VM but host still worked.

I then used autopatcher to update windows 8.1 on the vm. I removed and reinstalled the virtual switch choosing external option and share with host OS option. Same conditions occurred.
And then I installed the latest NIC driver. Same problem - media disconnected.

I tried this process with the latest driver from the realtek website which was a couple years more up to date. I had such high hopes! Same problem.

I then used msconfig to prevent all non-Microsoft services from starting and rebooted. I removed and recreated the switch and I was still hoping for success. Same exact conditions occurred.

These are the conditions that occur whenever an external switch with host os sharing enabled is installed in between all of these troubleshooting steps. It looks exactly the same every time...
The host machine can still access the network but it does so through the virtual switch. Ipconfig /all on the host reveals the following...

I am a web application developer, and I use the virtual host feature of the Apache web server to have local copies of several web sites on my PC. This has worked for years under Windows XP, Windows 7 and also Windows 10 - until installing the Creators Update,
since when I can only access one of my virtual hosts with Internet Explorer. I can access all of them with Edge, Firefox, and Opera, but all but one of them give me the INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND error with IE.

I have tried the suggested fixes I have found in numerous posts, but none of them work. Any ideas?

Hi there,
I've just installed a virtual machine (running XP Pro) onto my Vista machine. The Vista machine has a USB external hard drive attached. When trying to access the data on this hard drive from within the virtual machine (via the bridged network link between the virtual machine and the host) it is incredibly slow. I've tried moving the USB hard drive to another PC on the network (running XP Pro) and accessing it from the XP Pro virtual machine on the first PC, and this works fine. I'd be very grateful for any help or ideas!

First tiem asking for help. I am at my wits end.

Every time I ping avg.com I get the local host

There are no entries in the hosts file. I clear the dns resolver cache and still get local host. When I add avg,com to the host file the reverse dns pointer is correct in the resolver cache but the pointer A record shows up as local host.

I have disabled netbios and there is no lmhost file.

I realize ping is a winsock app and I have dbl checked winsocks and any bogus lsp. I searched for ads and rootkits and found none.

I have rebuilt the tcp\ip stack by removing the nic deleteing the nic enumerations and reinstalling.

I did a packet capture and no icmp packet is even created. Of course nslookup work as it queries the dns directly. My thinking is that there may be a hostname alias because the way MS does name resolution for pings it would stop there and not create an ICMP packet, I can?t seem to find any but am not quite sure where to look

Any ideas?

A:Ping avg.com local host

I am not sure how to move this, it may be for the networking gurus.

I total rebuilt tcp/ip and winsock from instruction in that forum. Also did some expermentation. That re-enforces my idea that it has to do with an aliase

I disbled dnscache and still ping avg.com to local host I fooled around with dns cache provider order, same results. Added the PrioritizeRecrodData=1 dword which is suppose to force dns query beyond the local subnet in case of roundrobin applications. Same results, ping avg.com and it returns, (remembr I do not have any host entry but a dummy one for avg.com to resolve to and there is no lmhostfile. I even disbaled dnscache and it still resolves to

Given all that and knowing the first thing ping does when resloving is check to see if it a localhost name and stops. (remember I did a capture packet and there was no icmp packet created). Second after turning the dns cache backon the resolver cahches an A record for avg.com and the record name is "localhost" see output below.

Hi there,

I've done a Google search and saw quite a few threads similar to mine, unfortunately none of the suggested solutions seemed to work for me, so I wonder if anyone can help.

I have a Windows XP Lenovo laptop that I suspect had some malware which has since been removed (ran various virus and malware killer scans and all come up empty).

However, while the laptop connects to the modem/router (via Ethernet, disabled wireless to avoid confusion) it doesn't seem to connect to the internet via any browsers (Chrome, IE etc).

Windows Firewall is disabled, no other firewall exists. Anti Virus is also disabled just to clear the path.

I can ping the router/modem by IP, I can ping other PC's on the home network by IP and name all successfully, I can also ping localhost successfully, but whenever I try to ping say www.yahoo.com it gives me the "ping request could not find host www.yahoo.com. Please check the name and try again". Pinging Yahoo's IP address however does work and gets responses.

I checked the host file name and it is empty apart from the " localhost" line.

I tried running some winsock fixing tools as well, but no luck. Still no internet connection.

If I type the IP address of my modem/router into a browser window I get the modem/router console, so connectivity between modem/router and the laptop is there, just not to the internet as such.

My "Ipconfig /all" output is as follows:

This is my 2. day with Windows 7. I'm having difficulties sharing an internet connection. There's a one-way connection only, apparently.

Host: Windows 7 build 7100 (
Client: Debian (

Host and client is connected via cross-over cable. Host features a second network connection to a switch box.

I can connect to Samba share on client, and ping too. SSH login on client is accessible also. But I can't ping host at from client. Therefore no internet connection

I'm kind of lost, so any help much appreciated.

I'm trying to setup ICS between two XP PCs, as well as File and Printer Sharing. The host is directly connected to the net via ADSL, and is connected physically to the client via a cable. I've looked all over the net for solutions, but the problem doesn't seem to be solved. My host comp can't ping to the client, but my client has no problem pinging the host. Also, the Deafult Gateway icon is missing. My guess is that something is wrong with the client's IP since I used the IP can't be found via third-party softwares, even though I'm sure I've assigned a static IP to the client. I've even double-checked with ipconfig.
Client's IP:
Host's IP:
I tried using CCProxy and the IP works, but I still want to use XP's ICS, since there are limitations to using a proxy. On a note, ICS has worked successfully on these PCs in the past. It no longer works after I reformatted one of the PCs.

Furthermore, I have problems with the file sharing. I tried sharing a folder on the host computer, and then map the network drive from the client. The error message appears, "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation". If anyone can tell me what exactly is the problem, I'll appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?!?

I have a 3.51 server that is a memeber of a domain. I can successfully ping this server using its hosts name from a workstation on the same domain in the same office area. When I move this workstation to a seperate area in the office I can only successfully ping the server using its IP address. I am unable to connect to any of its resources (Network not found).

I can however still connect/ping the host name of the other servers on the same domain and in the same location as the faulty server.

This one is really baffling me now...

I have windows 7 ultimate x64 on host and client for ICS.

Host is a laptop with a WIFI card and an Ethernet Card. (Sharing its WIFI through the ethernet card to the PC)

Client is a PC with only a Ethernet Card.


Everything is working fine (I have internet from both - can ping each other etc)

But i cannot ping the actual router from the client (PC) - I can ping it fine from the laptop.

Am i missing something? or is it supposed to work like this?

Any help would be majorlly appreachated - as i cannot get to the router login page from any computer other than the laptop which is connected to it wirelessly.

Thank you in advance?


A:Client cannot ping router through host (ICS) - No other problems...

I'm not 100% sure how ics works but my assumption would be that it acts as a router and as such is a layer 3 boundry device. What I would try doing is using a different subnet for the link from the pc to the laptop something like as what I think is happening here is from the desktop when you try to access the router it is switching rather than routing and an ics box won't forward on layer 2 packets. I could be off the mark but try a different range on that link

We have a network containing 15 computers most of them operating Windows 7. One main router connected to Internet, 3 switches and two routers configured as repeater (LAN connected for Internet - DHCP disabled). The network is Work-group type (named WORKGROUP).

Everything works great except one computer running Windows Professional (64bit) with a wired behavior. It is connected wireless through one of the two repeaters. On that repeater there are other 4 computers which can be seen and accessed in browse window.

That computer is able to see all the other machines in the network in browse window. Only it cannot be seen. But I can access its shared folders or shared printer mapping it by IP and shared path. Net use works for IP and for host-name too. Of course the Network discovery is ON, File and printer sharing is ON and Password protected sharing is Off. Antivirus temporary disable and Firewall disable, too...

When I try to ping ipv6.xsnews.nl on either of my Windows 7 computers, it returns "Ping request could not find host". But when I do it on XP, it succeeds. I have tried putting the W7 PC in the DMZ, disabling the software firewall but it doesn't help.

What I think it involves is having ipv6 installed on each. I tried to duplicate the setup of both the XP and a W7 computer, installing the gogo6 tunnel. But apparently it's not setup on this computer because the ping result is the same as on the third computer which hasn't had ipv6 installed.

I'm not sure where to even start in troubleshooting this since I've tried googling the error message and find lots of unrelated problems.

A:Can't ping/connect ipv6 host on Win7 vs XP

Half solved! Not the better half though.

I found out the reason why I could ping that and other sites that had ipv6-ness was that I was using an OpenDNS DNS on the XP computer. When I moved it to the Win7, I was able to ping.

But the problem remains, why am I not able to access ipv6 servers, and why do sites say I have no ipv6 data?

One of three machines on my home network is giving me trouble.
All are running XP SP2.
Call the troublesome one machine "X". It does have connectivity, can access the internet through the router. However, it cannot be seen by other machines on the network, nor can it see shares from other machines.

Specifically, pinging from machine X:
ping other hosts by name or IP: Yes
ping localhost or Yes
ping own hostname or own IP address: No reply.

Pinging from another machine on the network:
ping host other than "X": Yes
ping X by hostname or IP: No

Everything worked at one time, don't know what caused the change.
Any thoughts appreciated.

"Ping request could not find host [site]. Please check the name and try again."
This happens regardless of the site I use.

Lastly, I tried "ping" from a troubleshooting site. It gives me:
"Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss).
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms"

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

Probably a simple question for most...
I have a small SOHO setup.
Cable Modem --> D-Link Router --> 2 PCs networked together using TCP/IP
I am just curious how it is letting me ping from one PC to the other by using the HOST name of the PC. I know pinging the IP should work but how can it ping the HOST name? How is this possible since I don't have a DNS server running and I haven't modified the HOSTS file to tell the PCs that this HOST name is tied to this IP address.
Does it have something to do with NetBIOS?
Thanks...just wanted to know how it works under the hood.

A:[SOLVED] Able to Ping host names without DNS installed, how is it working?

I think there are settings in the router that resolve the names. Type in the address to access your routers settings and see if DNS is enabled.

this worked for me previously but i started from scratch and now it doesn't.
I have a single pc running windows 7 with a lan cable from it to a synology diskstation NAS.
my win7 pc is and my nas box server name is 'data' with ip

the other day within windows i was able to do \\data in an address bar and saw my file shares. I redid the NAS box today to make sure i understand how everything works, now doing \\data does not work from the win7 pc.

in a command prompt i type 'ping data' and it says could not find host.
but if i do ping it pings successfully, and if i do \\ in an address bar it shows my file shares and everything works fine

on the windows 7 pc, what causes this and how do i fix?

I am running Mac OSx through virtualization using VirtualBox. I have a bunch of stuff on there that I don't have on my main OS, Windows 7. I was wondering if there was a way to be able to access it on windows without opening the virtual mac, or without downloading it separately on the windows. Because everything is still on this hard drive, so can't I just search for it in windows and be able to find it? It's not that big of a deal for now since its just mainly pictures and music, which I can easily get on Windows in the first place. But I was thinking about putting some movies and bigger sized files on OSx and I just started wondering if I would be able to get them on the windows.

Anyways, like I said it's not that big of a deal if I can't. I just want to know if it's possible.

And just to quickly re-explain my little situation just incase you got confused. My computer runs Windows 7. And through a program I download called VirtualBox, I can boot into Mac OSx through virtualization. I creaded a virtual hard drive and gave it like 120 gigs out of my 600 gig hard drive.

Firstly I am no n00b when it comes to operating systems.  I have been playing this game for more years than I care.  However this thing has got me well and truly stumped.

Not too long ago I believe my machine must have been hit with a rootkit virus of some sort.  I run AVG but for reasons it did not pick this up.  None the less, this has now been cleaned.

Initially it took out my network cards, my wirless, my firewall, renamed my machine with no name, and all sorts of fun things.  Good times, but now mostly resolved.  What I still don't have is internet access.

I am connected to my router (along with my other equipment), trusting in DHCP which works as it should.  I am running Windows 7 home edition (64 bit).  Now the fun part.....I am unable to ping anything by hostname.  Absolutely nada. 
I can't can't ping localhost "Ping request could not find host localhost. Please check the name and try again.".  In fact I can throw anything I like in the host file and it will come up with the same error. 

I can 100% ping everything via IP address, no issues.
I get 100% responses from nslookup.
I am unable to ping by hostname only.  This is somewhat troublesome as this prevents me from getting to the internet and other things.
I have reset winsock, I have reset tcp, I have uninstalled both my nics and reinstalled them, I have uninstalled SP1 and reinstalled it.  I suspe... Read more

Hi There

I'm helpdesk support for the company I work for and have recenty hit a wall with Windows 7. We have two sites, both with seperate servers. All our computers are networked and named.
The program I normally use to access another computer to help support them is called UltraVNC. I simply enter in the computers name (i.e. "test1") and I can connect to their desktop, alternatively I can also use their IP Address.

The Problem: Now recently we've been doing hardware roll-overs, upgrading alot of our XP machines to Windows 7, and this has raised a few conflicts for our second site. The current one at present is I am unable to get to reach any Windows 7 machines from our second site (I'm primarily based at our first site).
When I say reach, I mean I am unable to:
- Ping using command prompt
- Connect using ultraVNC
- Connect using an RDP connection
- Or map a network drive
USING the computers name only. If I use the IP Address for any of the above it works perfectly fine.
What I can connect to using the computers name are:
- Site One: Any computer windows XP to 7
- Site Two: Windows XP computers only (but also including the domain which is Windows Server 2008).

These Computers are Windows 7 Profesional 64bit Machines, Lenovo Product branded.

What I've tried/Checked:
- Windows firewall is disabled, but I have also checked under Advanced Settings and enabled File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPV4-In).
- Remote Desktop Settings are set to allow co... Read more

A:Ping request could not find host *Insert windows 7 computer name here*

Sounds like something that came with the OEM Windows 7 machines are blocking it.

Is there a DNS server in each Site? If you are logged on to any XP or Server 2008 machine on Site 2 can you still not browse to Windows 7 machines via hostname in the second Site?

I have an old program that will run on XP but not Win 7 Pro and I am using Windows Virtual PC on my laptop to run it. It works fine but I cannot access files (share drives) from the main hard drive, i.e., the Win 7 file structure. I can work with the VM XP file structure but not the main files. I am able to access flash drives from the VM and so I can move the files around this way but it is very cumbersome. This machine is not on any sort of network. I have done the same thing on my desktop and have exactly the same problem (it operates on Win 7 Pro as well). Security is not a concern; I am the only user of these machines.

I have read what I can find about this and tried resetting all kinds of "sharing" permissions, including sharing just a folder instead of the entire drive, enabling sharing from both the Win 7 side and the VM XP side, etc. I've tried everything I can but to no avail.

Can anyone offer some ideas and/or direct me to a thorough discussion of this issue? Thanks in advance.

I'm looking to set up a couple of VM hosts and am trying to decide how to set up the storage,
Storage Technolgy - I was thinking about SSDs as our current servers have 146gb SAS drives and we don't have space issues, 256gb SSDs would give us room for future expansion. What model of SSDs would be best? I only have experience with Samsung 830s, are there server grade drives we are not heavy usage?
Connectivity/Backup - I'm unsure how best to connect whatever storage I decide on, I'd like to be able to move VMs between the two Hosts to load balance and for redundancy if one host goes down.

I've had a bit of a look into iSCSI as FC is probably out of my budget and it looks like it would help by centralsing all the VMs, backup could be to a secondary iSCSI host. I'm not sure of the performance I'd get though without going to 10gb.

The other option would just be local raid cards with additional slow SATA storage to cross backup the VMs, looking around most VM hosts have live backup utilities that would do the job then if a host failed it would just be a case of moving the VM to the primary storage from the backup and starting it again. (changing the backup to local until the other host comes back up) I could then back the slow storage to portable disks to take off site in case of loss of both hosts or for data recovery.

I have a local area network of four Windows 7 PCs. The PCs are named Term1, Term2, Term3 and Term4.

Term1 is the server PC.

When I map to Term1 from the other Terms(2,3 and 4) I always used the command:
Net use F: \\Term1\c /user:Admin 1234

This worked fine before; now it suddenly refuses to connect this way ? I have to replace Term1 with the actual IP address of Term1 for it to work.

have tried the following Admin CMD commands:

int ip reset

All of these commands make no difference; I just can't connect using the server name (Term1).

What I strangely noticed is that from any of the terminals connected to Term1 (using the IP address); if I use, for example, ping Term1,
I get an address return of;
this address of will
display if I ping to Term2, Term3 or Term4.

I cannot find any solution on the web for this strange problem.
