Running application as non-admin from network share block network communication.

Q: Running application as non-admin from network share block network communication.

I have a program used by several users and it is placed on a network share so they can share the data in the folder.
The application have to contact a Oracle Database sometimes. The application worked under Windows XP, but now we are migrating to Windows 7.
When I run the application from the network share as a administrator everything is working perfectly.
If I run the application as a user the application start and everything looks fine until the application have to contact the Oracle server - No connection to the server.
If I copy the application to the local disk everything works perfectly for the user account.
I have tried to do the same with Putty from a network share and it is the same problem when trying to connect to a host.
- I have added the UNC to IE Intranet sites but it dosent help.
- Firewall off dosent help
- Uninstall AV dosent help
- Adding the user account to local admin group dosent help
- Disabled UAC dosent help.
I hope someone can point me in the right direction...

Preferred Solution: Running application as non-admin from network share block network communication.

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 bought a new PC with Windows 7 Professional.

I want to keep using my old PC running XP Professional but pretty much have it act like a server where I can access or share it's hard drives with my Windows 7 system and my laptop which is also running XP.

I noticed that XP uses the workgroup name as MSHOME and Windows 7 uses something else. I should also add that at times, I have found (in the past) sharing my drives with my laptop kind of flaky where sometimes it wouldn't show or allow the drives.

In addition, I have three profiles or users attached to XP. What I plan to do since I only have one monitor is to turn on my old (XP) PC and then leave it running without accessing a particlular profile or user. None of the users are password protected and I have disabled all firewalls including Zonealarm and Windows Firewall to ensure that my connection isn't blocked when I am trying to access the drives.

Any comments or suggestions on how to network share given my situation? I do realize that I am putting myself at risk by disabling the firewall, but at the present time, I want to ensure all the PCS can communicate with each other.

how do i share a network printer from my win7, 64 pc to one running vista

i have tried all the sharing settings, but when i upgraded my PC to win 7, my second pc running vista won't print anymore

A:how do i share network printer from my 7, 64 pc to one running vista

jfree, a big welcome to you to Sevenforums!

On both Windows 7 and Vista, make sure under advanced sharing settings (find by typing phrase into start menu search) that you turn on network discovery and file and printer sharing (both computers).

On the Vista one (without the printer installed), in the start menu search bar, type 'add printer' without quotes and click it. Go through the steps to search for and install the printer driver (and thus the printer) to which you are connecting.

Hope this answers your question. Let me know if it does or not.

What I want is the most secured pc possible, disabling all the network connections except my private network made with hamachi. I use it to play games on lan with my friend, but when I get malicious tools from internet, all my system is f***ed up and I need to reinstall windows, softwares and all my games, one by one.

-I use the standard windows firewall, my computer is xp pro SP3.
-I deleted every web browser I had, explorer not completely removed.
-Our hamachi network is secured with a password, only the two of us using it.
-I plan on freezing my system partition after making all the changes needed (deepfreeze)

So how can I reinforce my pc security without buying an AV that will ruin me? What setting should I change in my firewall or is there a better one aviable for free? Is there an alternative to freezing my system since I need to turn it off even for the smallest change?

Hope you can help me on this.

A:How to block all network connections but not hamachi private network?

From what I've read, you have to allow Hamachi to contact its server in order to login.

Apart from that, go to Windows Firewall, Exceptions tab, and uncheck everything that you feel is not used.

A stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall will only allow networks packets to come in if it has seen packets going out to that address. So if an application talks to a server, then that server is allowed to reply back. Otherwise all other inbound connections attempts are blocked. The Windows Firewall is an SPI type. So, that should fulfill your requirement of "disabling all network connections" .

One thing you should consider. Windows Firewall on XP doesn't block outgoing applications. So if you downloaded a malware and it starts calling home, Windows Firewall will not stop it. There are free firewalls available, like Comodo and Online Armor, which have outbound blocking. These 2 have a built in white list of safe programs to allow online. If an unrecognized program calls outbound, it will ask you for permission.

I don't understand why an antivirus will ruin you. I'll assume that you mean financially. There are a number of antivirus programs that are free: AVG Free, MS Security Essentials and Avast.

You stated that you want the 'most secured pc possible'. So I'll add some other advice.

Get a router if you don't have one. Even if you have only 1 PC. The router will act as a basic hardware firewall. The Windows Firewall is ok, ... 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

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? 
TestFolder on TestServer is shared to TestUser1 & TestUser2 where the IP of TestServer is
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).

I'm new to wifi and networking, but a longtime pc user.

I bought a new Dell laptop with XP home SP2 and built-in 802.11g support, and also bought a Belkin 54g pcmcia card to provide the same for my old Toshiba laptop running Win98se. In a few weeks I'll have broadband, and plan to get a wireless router, and hope to add a desktop pc to the network. However, my first steps have produced a problem.

The Belkin pcmcia card and software installed fine, and both laptops 'see' each other either as an unencrypted or WEP encrypted ad hoc (peer) network with excellent signal strength. However, neither one 'sees' the other through 'my computer' or 'network neighborhood/my network places'. As a result, the network doesn't do much of anything at the moment.

I have verified that both have 'microsoft network file sharing' enabled, and I have tried the XP laptop with the firewall turned off. Still, neither can transfer files to the other.

This problem must have occurred to others, but so far I haven't found a thread that explains what the problem is.

Can any experts help?

I have been trying for a long time to figure out how to create a network communication system on my small office network. I have searched far and wide, and figured that some day I would be able to learn the language to program such a thing.

What I would like to do is be able to communicate with text, and hopefully verbally talking, between computers, and even create a intranet mail box where I could send messages to employees like email, and the employees can communicate among each other likewise.

My network is all set up and I can call my business and communicate through the various computers and share files. but I need to call the people directly by phone to discuse the things I need to discuss.

I run Windows 2000 professional on all computers with no servers, just peer to peer. I am set up with net bieu because I did not take the time to figure out tcp/ip.

I would appreciate any comments, help, or resources to explain how I can accomplish this. I have even search for low cost programs to help as my needs are really small.

Let me tell you what I did and then I'll tell you the end results. I have a comcast cable modem that was hooked to a linksys .11b router and everything was working great. I tried to upgrade to .11g and couldn't connect to the internet. I looked on the linksys site and one suggestion was to clone the mac address. Unfortunately, I was logged into the .11b router when I clicked the clone mac address button, since then I have gotten errors about two devices with same name and if I want to conect to the internet I have to connect directly to the cable modem and ipconfig release and renew everytime I boot up. Another thing I noticed, on my Dell latitude 610 laptop, the ethernet port lights are now blinking yellow and amber instead of green. I have unistalled the ethernet adapter and reinstalled it numerous times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Network communication

Just a quick guess is to reset the linksys you want to use as the gateway router. Leave your network card settings as dynamic ip on the laptop and see if you get a connection. By default the gateway is set for dynamic so out of the box you should be connected if you laptop card is set as dynamic ip. As for the two same-named units it's most likely because both routers where on and both are named Linksys by default also. So make sure one is unplugged.

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.
-Deleted the share and recreated - same issue.
-Created C:\Test and shared it as SQL2014, cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014. It is NOT an issue with the actual SQL2014 folder.

It can't be firewall issues because no computers configuration were changed, and the same SSHD ports are still open. Is it possible that i missed some checkbox in configuration or it's the default behaviour of new firmware and I have to set up some virtual servers or something to make it possible?

I'm at the end of my rope with this one.

I have a Belkin N+ router, a laptop and a desktop, both running Windows 7. Desktop wired Ethernet, laptop connects wirelessly, via one of two wireless adapters--a Dell WLAN card, or a Netgear RangeMax adapter (I've tested this problem with both adapters, and the behavior is identical regardless which adapter I use, and I disable the one I'm not using).

When I first connect wirelessly, all is fine. I can access the other computer and its files on the network. After a matter of minutes, though (average time around 15 minutes), the laptop "disappears" from the list of DHCP clients on the router's webpage, and I can no longer "see" the other computer or access its files. This is true whether I am on the laptop trying to access the desktop or vice-versa.

I've turned off both firewalls for testing (on both computers), and it happens with them off as well as on.

I've triple-checked that the security setting (WPA2 with AES) is the same on the router and the adapter (I've also tried changing the security settings). I've tried changing the channel, I've tried putting "protect mode" on.

Even though the laptop seemingly "disappears" from the router's client list, I can access the internet just fine, and I stay connected to the network--I just can't access my other computer or its files.

could not access wifi and deleted my profile at one time. I am not technical but I did a system restore to retrieve it. I have looked everywhere and MS security does not see it as a threat so does nothing. I would like to set myself as my own system/network

Hey all! I need some help.

I am a single mom and have 2 kids. Son is 16 and very tech savvy. Being 16, he doesn't like to listen to me, as of course he knows so much more about everything than I do.

He also games way to much and I need the ability to shut down the Internet. I've tried to change the modem/router name and password. He reset it. I work from home and need the Internet. So... Is there another way that I can be online with my computer and keep him off at the same time. And not have him able to override what I do? I do still have the admin rights on the laptop he uses. I fear if I install any programs on it though he will find a way around it. And he has a playstation as well. So doing anything on laptop won't work with that.

Ideally, I would like a way to control wifi access from my computer. Assuming he doesn't go unplug it so no one has it, is there a way to do that? And so he can't take control of it away from me.

Just for reference... If you have ever watched Big Bang Theory, he is almost a Sheldon. Way to smart for his own good and lacks in some social skills. Although he has mastered sarcasm and his field of interest is engineering/computer science rather than physics.

Thanks for any help, ideas, and suggestions!!


A:Block network to 1 computer

Some routers include in their settings the ability to define the function of the reset button. It can often be deactivated. But there are still other ways to reset it.

The best idea may be to simply remove the router and/or modem (or whatever you use to connect) from his access, either by putting it near you or locking it up in something or somewhere.

However, technical solutions to what are ultimately problems of discipline and authority will always come up somewhat short. Is it really a good idea to teach someone that the only reason he has to follow a rule or face a responsibility is that he has not yet figured out some way to get around it?

Whose house is it? Is anyone in charge?

Hello all
I have been referred to this forum by Terrynet (Moderator?)
I am running XP with SP2 on one computer and this is networked to a computer running ME facilitated by ethernet cards in both computer, a crossover cable and a broadband Speedtouch 330 modem. There is Norton AV and firewall on the XP computer and the ME computer is configured to run via the Norton Firewall (Windows Firewall is disabled). There is no AV software on the ME computer as it is used for internet only (but I will install some if I get this problem fixed.

When I boot up the XP computerthe network is fine:

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : D6700
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Mixed
IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes
WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

Howeverafter about 10 minutes the network fails, the ME computer won't access anything on the internet although the XP computer remains able to access the internet/mail, and the "IP Routing Enabled" part of the is changed to "No" after a further ipconfig /all scan.
If I reboot the XP computer the network is OK again for 10 minutes, after which it fails again.
Terrynet suggested that I do a hijackthis scan which is underneath and post it to this forum to try and determine what is switching the IP Routing Enabled to NO.
I wondered if someone with knowledge of this please examine the hijackthis script and see if there is something there that shouldn... Read more

sorry for my poor english.

I just realised that the Registry set "EnableUAC=1" Windows 10 is Blocking my Home Network App. With File Explorer I can acess all the Network, but from my Networking Application , it is just and simpled Blocked!
With the setting =0 all is working fine.
So, is that what MS says ist and advertise "Security"? Well, they must be talking to the folks in the Third World.
I am asking what Netqwork Virus would do .
Forget Wibndows 10, that is a abuse!

I work in a company with a local network through which we also access the internet.
The network is password protected and only the network admin can access individual computer data over the network but I want to block this admin from having access to my files.
Inotherwords he should have access to my hard drive over the network even though he has the password.

A:Block network administrator

Welcome to Seven Forums,

This won't be a possible request. The Network Admin is in charge of your company network so he has all the permission to take control of your network. Having said that, I'm afraid that this Forum does not provide assistance in circumventing network protocols.

The network is password protected and only the network admin can access individual computer data over the network but I want to block this admin from having access to my files.

I need to block the network Administrator from accessing a folder on my hard drive from the network server. This folder has to remain on my hard drive as it needs to be accessessible to people via the network, and I can handle permissions for the users, but cannot figure out how to deny permission to the network Administrator either through the server or my PC. We thought it was not accessible to the network Administrator on the server, but turns out it is. It is a Windows 2000 server and the PC with the hard drive I need blocked is Windows NT. Strange situation but urgent!
Another part of this is that I want to move this folder from my pc to the server, and also need to know if there is a way to deny permission to the network administrator also on the server itself - maybe just give myself and my boss permission? How? Is this possible?

I'm soon going to have two different networks in my home-one, my "home" PCs (2-3 machines), and the second, the business PCs my wife's employees will be using (4-5 machines). Some of these machines will be used by remote users who will be connecting to these boxes with a remote control app for access to a server based program that they use (this is cheaper than a citrix/terminal services type solution since we already have the hardware).

My question is, if all the PC's are sharing the same broadband connection/routers/switches, what is the easiest way to keep one workgroup from being able to access the other, without using a domain controller? Since the remotes will have full access to the PC's, how do I keep them out of my home network easily?

I'm using Comodo and whenever I select scvhost.exe [812] and block it, the scvhost.exe [1004] gets blocked as well.

Extremely annoying because, the PID 1004 is required for my DNS to function... websites won't work right without it unless I type the IP address. [812] looks like some sort of Microsuck phone-home BS... whois has it registered to them. I have updates disabled so they need to get off my stuff!

A:Is it possible to block network access by PID instead of process name?

Still interested in the answer for prosperity's sake, but for now I fixed the 'issue' by simply banning traffic between my computer and several million M$ucks IP addresses.

hi i want to block certain sites from my computer and the others on the network through one computer using the admin privileges i have how can i do this.

A:Block a site on my computer network

Using ICS:
modem==[B]Primary[/B] computer===router---other PCs
the firewall on the Primary will control access of other devices, but it's a pain to configure AND the Primary must be running for anything else to have Internet Service (including even simple email).

the more typical layout
modem===router --- All devices
is far more practical but only the common router is available for access controls and
with the average home-router, it is limited in the number of keywords or urls that can be managed.

Each PC could have its own system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and block access with
a line per site (meaning everything at a given domain) like

Code: blocked_domain_name
but then you need to update all PCs with every change and recycle the DNS on each machine usingipconfig /flushdns
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"​while effective, this technique is all-or-nothing, ie all users are denied uniformily

I didn't know where to post this, but I wanted to document it for anybody else who might encounter it:Around 8:00 this morning my Internet went down. That was unusual, so I tried to open a command prompt, which kept crashing explorer.After searching the Internet, I found http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/211718/google-redirects-cmdexe-and-regedit-crash-explorerexe/ -- but that wasn't my exact problem. I didn't have the offending file specified, and that post didn't talk about network blocking (which was happening both on my wired and wireless interfaces, while my Mac on the network could connect fine). Renaming cmd.exe to xyz.exe worked (it wouldn't crash), however renaming regedit.exe to zyx.exe didn't help -- it still closed after about 10 seconds, just like it had before.Within those 10 seconds that regedit stayed open, I exported the drivers32 tree like the above thread suggests. There I found this entry:"aux2"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\..\\bqnn.bbs"That looked odd to me, because who puts an extra directory with a "\\..\\" unless they were trying to mask the location? I tried deleting bqnn.bss (which was in c:\windows) and rebooted. It reappeared. Went to a friend's house to download HijackThis (because my connectivity was being blocked) and used the tool to delete the bqnn.bbs file on reboot, as prescribed in the above thread.It worked and I am now posting from my repaired computer.And now you know how to fix it if the same happens to you. Thanks,-Nate

In "This Program Path" go to your Firefox Folder and click Firefox.exe

A:How To Block Firefox and Explorer using Network


Yes, you may block unwanted sites and restrict browsing hours from the router. Depending on the type of router that you have, some do have advanced features. Pls check out this link on how to set restrictions, including other ways too.
How to Block Websites | Restrict Internet Access

A Security/firewall device such as Sonicwall would do a lot more. The Content Filtering feature would be the best option for you. Of course this is just an option, it can be pricey.

Hope this helps.

hi guys i have an internet wifi at home and there are about five computers/laptops and mobile phones and other device that is connected to my wifi and i want to find a way where i can block website on my home wifi so none of the the devices can access the sites, the site that i meanly refer is adult sites.

i have tried OpenDNS but my internet provider does not allow 3rd party dns resolvers, so i am looking for a software or something like that which can block adult site meanly.

info about my network and wireless modem
Network = Optus Australia

i would be glad if anyone could help me out

thanks in advance

A:Block Websites over/on Wifi Network ?

There may be something in the router configuration for website blocking...

Edit: I found on the Netgear site that this router does support URL blocking, but the user guide is useless (all Optus branded). Your best bet would be to log in to your router and look for "Website Filtering" or something along those lines.

Let's say I have a specific area where I need to have a functioning laptop, but I don't want it to have access to the internet. This is an urban area where there are several free public wifi networks available. In other places, the computer should have normal access to wifi networks. The laptop is a sony viao running windows 7.

I figured out how to use the netsh command line utility to filter these unsecured networks from the list of available networks. That doesn't really solve the problem though, because it's easy to run netsh again and remove that filter, although maybe the utility has some other capabilities I'm not aware of.

I'm striking out trying to figure out a way to do this, although you'd think it would be something that parents or corporate IT people would want, now that free wifi is proliferating all over the place. There has to be some way to block the networks or require a password for access. Thoughts?

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

-On the PCs that are catching the domain network I am only getting a single error about the root domain, eg the domain is ad.domain.com and I am only getting errors about how the configured DNS servers cannot resolve domain.com (nothing with fully qualified
