Error when using GetFolder method and Network share

Q: Error when using GetFolder method and Network share

I'm trying to use GetFolder method of the Scripting.FileSystemObject with Network shares. When running the ASP page a 500 server error is being displayed saying "Path not found". I've tried GetFolder with a network drive although this doesn't seem to work. I'm using classic ASP and IIS.
Any help is appreciated

Happy New Year everyone!! Currently I have my computer connected to the internet via cable modem. My mother-in-law just got a new crappy Acer laptop for Christmas and she wants to hook her computer and her granddaughter's computer to the internet via my cable modem internet connection. My first thought is HELL no!! Neither of you know nothing about computers nor the internet and if I share my connection with you I will have viruses galore because of the mother-in-law and probable complaints from ISP provider because of the granddaughter going on illegal sites and downloading illegal material.

So, I was thinking what can I do to solve this problem. I googled around on 'internet sharing' and from what I searched it seems like sharing a broadband connection using a Linux router in the most secure, safest, and overall best way to solve my problem. You see, I want to be in complete control of everything. Now I will tell you what I'm thinking and you all can point me in the right direction/advice. I have my laptop and a desktop that I don't use. So I can use that as the Linux router. I use Windows XP Pro on my laptop by the way. But I was thinking that I would keep my computer as the main computer and assign my mother-in-law and her granddaughter two separate accounts that I can control completely. I want to be able to monitor (visually) and at times restrict everything they do so they won't mess up their computers. I plan on assigning them limited a... Read more

Hello all, today I finally got around to creating a home network between my two desktops and laptop. Well, I set it up using the Network Setup Wizard, and then attempted to share my "My Music" folder (22 GB) and "My Videos" folder (12 GB). Well, when I went to Properties->Sharing and checked the "Share this folder on the network" tab, I got an error message stating:

An error occured while trying to share My Music. The Server service is not started.
The shared resource was not created at this time.

Anyone have any ideas?

Edit: I think I have found why I can't share files on this computer. When I go to My Network Places and click on "View workgroup computers", I get another message saying:
Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this netowrk resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found.

I found this odd because this was the first computer I setup for networking. I have also googled this message, and found that it is commonly caused by the Windows Firewall. I have the Windows Firewall deactivated, and instead I'm using Zone Alarm.

All help is appreciated. Thanks

I'm experiencing a weird windows 7 copy error. 
I have a folder that will copy just fine onto another NTFS drive but will say "Error 0x80070032: The request is not supported." when I copy/paste onto my Network drive at E: (mounted using \\server\sharename on E: -- error is not specific to E:,
any other mount point will produce the same error). 
I tried giving generous permissions, removing attributes, etc. nothing worked. I can't reason why it would say this error only for this folder, the other folders are copying just fine.
The peculiar thing is -- If I use "robocopy" it copies just fine onto the network share (note that I'm not using any magical options with robocopy to do this), but it would simply fail when I use the windows explorer copy. 
"Robocopy" is a command I cannot train my users with. I need to know exactly what is causing this error so I can advice users in my homegroup so they can be successful copying to the network drive. Also, it's really very frustrating that a random
folder will fail to copy with this error and a user can just not figure what might cause this issue.
Please help!  Also, please note that I have tried all possible options such as disabling client smbv1, registry entries etc all mentioned on that one & only microsoft KB article that fails to provide a definitive solution. And YES I've tried to

I am able to connect from XP to a network share at my workplace by giving login/password. However, when I try to connect from Windows 7 i get the error: "specified authentication package is unknown"

However, I am able to connect to another shares. From XP no one is having any problems in connecting to this share at all.

Have googled but to no avail. Found one suggestion to add 'authentication packages' key to registry but it was already present in my Win 7 and with the correct value.

Any help would be appreciated as I am at my wits end with this issue. Win 7 is working flawlessly otherwise. Much much better than XP. Vista was pretty much unusable on my laptop (HP TC 4400 tabletpc)

Hi all, I have a weird problem. And also complicated, 'cos not even my CISCO Network teacher has been able to give me a solution. I think I need some smart people here

The thing is that I can't share my printer (connected by USB to my PC) with my laptop on another room, over the local network (in Win7 the name is Home Group).

The printer model is not relevant because time ago I was able to do what I'm trying now.

All my configurations are OK, at least the basic ones, because there's definetely something wrong with my PC, and here's why: if I take my laptop and put it next to the printer and connect it to it (by the same USB cable), I can access the printer with my PC, while it's been shared by the laptop.

That proves that the internal network is fine. Also, all the configurations of the printer and also of the home group are literally same in both PCs, the big one and the laptop.

Both PCs run Win7. I have tried this, Connect to printer error - Microsoft Windows Vista Community Forums - Vistaheads, but it didn't work.

The printer is also properly installed on my PC, it is not a driver problem or something like that.

My AV is ESET ESSBE 4, but I don't think it's related, because I have tried deactivating its firewall, and also, on the laptop the AV is the same and the
printer did work.

The services are also equal in both PC's now. I have even tried changing the network adaptor on my PC (from Ethernet to Wifi). Nothing.

The network share is in a different office and is accessible over a point-to-point VPN, so the connection is not that fast. 

But before everyone tells me to start diagnosing the router and or VPN please take note of the following:

We are getting the following error when mapping to a network drive of a DFS share on Windows 7:
?The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred:

A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated."
In our case, the user logs on his workstation using his regular domain account, then maps to the network DFS share using the service account of an application.
There is a fix from Microsoft (MS KB968264). But this fix requires disabling the "Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication? property. This is against the Microsoft own best practices (Network access:
?Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication? should be set to
ENABLED), and is NOT acceptable for us for obvious security reasons.

The thing is when you close the file and reopen after you have saved, the changes are there. But if you wait 30 seconds the changes are reverted back, has anyone come across this before? There is no error message and annoyingly it looks to have saved the file but it doesn't.

I have a unusual case where I need to setup two mapped network drives as two different users to the same share location. When I attempt to map the second drive after inputting the user name and password the system goes on its merry way for a few seconds
and then returns me back to the username/password input.
If I change the second mapped network drive to use the IP address the two shares work happily. If I manipulate the host file and point two paths to the same address then I can also work around this problem. However, I would simply like to know why I am blocked
from setting two mapped drives to point to the same share with different credentials?

If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will not work. 
Mapping S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will work and I can access the folder as the two different users.
Case 3
If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1 it will also work (but I am accessing S: & T: as the same user). 
Why do cases 2 + 3 work, but case 1 does not?

I have an odd issue.. a user reports that they are unable to access a network shared folder from their PC. Here is what I have gathered so far:
-The network share is from their PC located at C:\SQL2014. The share name is SQL2014. Their hostname for this example is "ABC".
-If I attempt to connect to the share from the user's PC ABC to \\ABC\SQL2014 I get the generic error:
  "Windows cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014
   You do not have permission to access \\ABC\SQL2014. Contact your network administrator to request access."
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's IP \\\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's FQDN at  \\ABC.domain.com\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I map ABC\SQL2014 as a drive letter, I can access it.
-Connecting to this share works fine from any other PC other than ABC.
-I've confirmed the error is affecting any profile old or new on ABC, which means it is a PC-wide issue on ABC.
-If I share C:\SQL2014 as ANY OTHER NAME OTHER THAN SQL2014, I can access it. As in if I share C:\SQL2014 with the share name SQL2014a, I can access \\ABC\SQL2014a.

After installing a good many networks, found that only 60-70% of time printers would share on XP Pro SP2 using the add network printer wizard.

Stumbled across another way and wondered if this long winded way will be successful all the time. (As it has been up to now)

Printer connected to Host machine, on all client machines you need to install the driver of the printer as if you are physically attaching it. When it asks you to choose a port you make a new local TCP/IP Port and name the port as the server address of the host with shared printer ie \\hostcomputer\shared printer name, and voila shared printer works.

In particular Epson have been problematic, and this seems to work around networking problems, (not sending the whole print file acroos to the host, print queue freezing or document sizes seeming smaller than they actually are and not printing).

Some thoughts on this would be very welcome

A:Is this the best method to network a printer

You could use Control Panel->Printers and faxes->Printer Properties->Sharing.

Then use Printers and Faxes on the client pcs to add a new network printer. This asks you to install some drivers, and I've used this method with Epson Printers. Works without a a hitch.

I am doing some work for a company that has about 10 PC's running Win98 on a local network and they need a way to back up information. It is a chemical lab that has several PC's hooked up to machines that run tests on chemicals. They need to back up these files and several databases. I need opinions on what is the best way to back up all this data. They want it to be able to run at night when no one is around. I thought about CDR, but that's not enough storage. What about tape? How reliable are they? They would prefer some kind of disk that can be stored off site. Not just backed up on a hard drive there. Also, I would need something that could get the info off other PC's on the network and back it up too. I will probably build a computer for them specially for backing up and storing some of the data. It will be storing the data for others to use (kind of like a server). So, would a SCSI hard drive increase the speed or is the slowest link the 10/100 network? I don't remember if it is 10 or 100. I have no idea what RAID is - would this be an option?



A:What's the best backup method for several PC's on a network? - tape or other?

Loaded question, and really should be in the network forum, so I'm going to move it there.

But first...

Can you put in a server and have them actually store the files there? Then you just have to back up one drive.

A tape drive can back up anything you want on a peer to peer network as long as you map drive letters to the various computers.

4mm tape is pretty darn reliable and much faster than Travan tapes. I generally put 4mm Sony drives in the servers I sell. How much capacity are you talking about though?

You will also need to figure out what kind of software to use to backup to the drive - this will depend on the OS of the machine that the drive is in.

As for RAID - that is for onsite redundant backup. Although a very good thing, it isn't offsite, which is what you said they want.

Hi all,
I fixed a stubborn networking issue and hopefully someone else can benefit from all the frustration I have experienced over the last few days.

Some background. This was a workgroup network not a domain client/server. 
Also, Windows HomeGroup wizards were not used - just accounts and passwords. 
I have five NAS boxes for storage and backup. These NAS boxes use CIFS or SMB file systems. IP address are assigned through DHCP. It is a very simple yet secure workgroup net. Everything was OK then it hit the fan.
I installed a new router after the old one failed. I powered down the entire network, cabled up and configured the new router. On my old Vista notebook PC all five NAS devices were OK. In Vista, Windows Explorer, I could access all the folders and files
on all the NAS boxes.
However on all the other systems, Windows 7 or Windows 8, I would get errors. In Windows Explorer I could see "\\MyNAS\Share\" but cannot navigate to it.

Hello all,

We have a Windows 7 Pro computer in an unsecure room acting as a file server to 10 other computers on the network.

My issue is with creating and securing network shared folders so that prying eyes can not access info not meant for them.

We currently have 3 folders to share with different departments. These folders are 'Accounting', 'Design', and 'Production'.

As mentioned there are 10 other computers on the network and user accounts have been created on the file server to match the user accounts on each of the 10 computers. For these 10 user accounts on the file server, we did however set up the users with passwords that are different than the password used on their own computer. This was done to prevent anyone from logging into the file server and messing with it.

The method I am considering for sharing the 'Accounting', 'Design', and 'Production' folders is to share each folder on the file server and to add 'Everyone' as a user, granting access to all 10 users on the network. To limit access to any particular user, via the 'Security' tab on the shared folder, I press the edit button and add the user. Then all their permissions are set to deny. I would add more users I wish to deny access in the same way.

It seems to work fine. Mapping a network drive to the file server is allowed only by users not denied for the particular share and a password is not required to map to the share.

Is there any security risk to doing it this way or any downside I may ... Read more

A:Win 7 Pro file server with network shares - is this method secure?

Hi there,

This is not an optimal solution. What you've done, if I understand your explanation properly is open up access (everyone), then put band-aids over it.

One better approach is to (a). Create groups for each department (b). Create the shares with permissions specific to each group (Accounting users can access the accounting share), then grant specific Allow permissions only to that group for that folder and sub-folders. You could add deny permissions for others, but it simply adds complexity that you don't need.

A good security model starts from a deny-all point and adds allow permissions as required. You are working the other way.. Allow all then deny as required. It may well work, but you risk missing something one day and then someone gets access to something they shouldn't.

It's better to have a user complain that can't access something (that you then fix), than have someone with access to something they shouldn't and they don't tell you about it.

Where possible you should always stay away from Everyone permissions.

Also, full control, unless specifically needed, should only be granted to administrators.

As a general rule of thumb, you open it up only as much as you need to to let the people who should have access gain access.

It may be that the credentials required to access the share are stored in your credential manager (see control panel). Password protected shares are a good thing, as long as you don't have to enter the password every time. Worked in... Read more

I've just had a new PC built for me, for the first time rather than build it myself I aid a local shop, and it's a pretty nice machine. They got windows up and running, when I got it back and lugged it in I don't even remember it asking about whether my network was home, work or public (I may be mistaken about that)

A lot of the networking is fine, by adding 'everyone' to the share, and joining the same homegroup as my laptop, I managed to get each to see their desktops, so I'm up and running with most of my workflow. But there's a couple of things not quite right about the network:

I've got a Xerox Phaser 60 network printer. It's got a simple 'walk-up' installer where you get the windows software into listening mode and then on the printer's menu initiate the connection. This doesn't find the printer. Even choosing the manual option of inputting the ip won't find it. So I've had to connect it with USB, not the end of the world, but shows that something's not right.

I have a lot of media on a dlna server in my home. Setting up kodi to find it, the SMB devices didn't show the host. Though, manually typing the IP in this case did find it. Lucky I knew the IP. Weird

And trying to FTP to my website fails too. It says "EAI_FAIL - Nonrecoverable failure in name resolution" Yet the same settings on my laptop (imported from the laptop) connects fine.

Surely there's something not quite right. Is there a way to reset all the network connection settings to default 'out of... Read more

Im in an Intro to Java class and have this assignment but Im getting this error. Please help!

Create a class called Dog. Every dog is identified by a name and age.
A dog can be in one of two states, either 'working' or 'off duty'.
Provide a onDuty () method that changes the dog from the off duty state to the working state.
Provide a offDuty() method that changes the dog from the working to the idle state,
and a showAge () method that displays the age of the dog in man years (seven times the dog's age).
Create a dog object with suitable name and age attributes and invoke the methods.
Your program must output suitable messages to the screen.

import java.util.*;

public class Dog
String name;
int age;
int dogYears;
public static void onDuty();
System.out.println(name + " was off duty.");
System.out.println(name + " is now working.");

public static void offDuty();
System.out.println(name + " is on duty.");
System.out.println(name + " is no longer working.");

public static void showAge();
System.out.println(name + " is" + (age * 7) + " in dog years.");
public static void main(String[] args)
System.print.ln("Alfie is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.");
System.print.ln("He is " + age + "years old.");

1. Remove the semi colon at the end of each function name

2. Change System.print.ln to System.out.println
3. Change the dot at the end of System.print.ln() to semi-colon.

I am using the EnableBitlocker.vbs script to automatically assign the TPM and start the encryption. I am running it from an elevated command prompt. Here is are the arguments I am running with

This error indicates that the group policy isn't set correctly, when configure the group policy at teh server side, you should notice that only one of the additional authentication can be required at start up , otherwise a policy occurs, the notice can be
found just like below:

and after test, the error indeed occurs, just like the screen below:

So, I suggest to check the group policy for bitlocker settings, you can only choose one start up authentication method.

Have never tried using Bluetooth that way, but if it works what you need to do is enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on the connection on the XP that has internet access.

Sorry, this might be resolved in the archives somewhere but the problem is so uncharacteristic I'm just going to post it.

I'm doing some data validation on a pair of combo boxes that can't have identical values. The code is really simple:
Private Sub cboFirstField_Change()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

If Fields_Match() Then
[B]Me!cboFirstField.Undo[/B] [COLOR="SeaGreen"]' <-- This is the line that breaks[/COLOR]
End If

Exit Sub

MsgBox "Script execution error in cboFirstField_Change" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description, _
vbCritical + vbOKOnly, _
Resume ExitHandler
End Sub
I put the same routine under the Change event for both combo boxes. Every time I test it on either field, I get a 438 ("Object doesn't support this property or method") on execution of the Undo statement.

Per the Access 2010 reference, ComboBox objects support an Undo method, and the relevant statement in my code is identical to the example provided.

So, I guess I'm really confused? Does anyone see a glaring issue with my code?

We use weather.com radar maps for scientific research and watch the weather avidly. We put in the city, state and at the bottom of that page there is an interactive map using virtual earth that shows the weather radar and you can zoom in and so on. Last week it quit working. It's the only thing that isn't working and it's a major pain. Normally when you click on the map to make it larger and animate it, it goes to a new window and starts the radar moving. Now it show a blank square, everything else comes up, ads, so on, just not the radar. There is an error code that pops up at the bottom of the screen with a yellow triangle and an exclamation point. When I click on it this is what it says " CHAR 6660 ....unexpected call to property or method access"

I have checked windows for any further updates, ran virus check, spybot, updated Java...updated adobe player, flash player. Nothing changes. the radar map still doesn't work.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've seen a ton of tutorials and help threads, a lot on this site, on how to set up a VPN connection in Windows 7. I got that going a few days ago with no problem, now my pain in the ass however is accessing the network itself. I have Win 7 on the client and server end, I can connect to the VPN, but I cannot access the files on my network. The files that I'm trying to access are all shared on my computer so I have no idea whats up. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

A:How can I share any files on my network ?

I'm assuming these are your laptops and you don't have others on the same network otherwise there may be some security issues. All of my systems are on my personal network, however Win10 has thrown me a curve and I'm currently have issues access all of the drives on my desktop to my laptops. Following are some general steps.
Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center, on the left side click Change advance sharing settingsSee the following image for the settings
Expand the Guest or Public section and select the first option in each of the two options
Now expand the last section All Networks, see the following image for the settings (the first two options, select the first option, the 3rd option select the 2nd option)
You can now close the control panel
Now open Windows explorer and drill down to the folder you want to share
I'm assuming you want to share the documents folder
Click on the Sharing tab and then click the Share button
Here I selected Everyone because nobody else is on my network. However if somebody hacks into my network then they have access. For the permissions select Read/Write, at the bottom of the window click on the Share button. Depending on the size of the folder this can take several seconds/minutes.
You should see something like the following, note that the folder is shared and then click the Done button
Back in the Document properties windows, click on the Advance Sharing button (note that it states the folder is shared)

Due to my work I often hav to work with net shares.
These have all different Settings (IP, Domain, User, Password) - and they are also not all always availible (so that auto remount is not working).

Also my Notebook is set up that way that it is not saving the credentials (Password) of a netshare (or RDP) connection - and also the basic settings (IP) are only saved for the latest connectins.

So I'm interessted if there is a management Tool that helps me to manage that situation, so that I can store allmy Settings & Credentials , so that I can double Click just to connect a net share without explicitely entering all data manually.

For RDP there is the RDP Manager that archives exactelly this - but is there something for netshares?
