Remote access to file server via the internet

Q: Remote access to file server via the internet

Description of Systems:
Two independent family companies, each with their own LAN, FILE SERVERS and WIN98 Workstations, each operating independently and successfully using different workgroup names. One company is using WIN2000 Server and the other WIN2000 Pro on the file server and all workstations use WIN98. Both FILE SERVERS are using NTSF file system on the partitioned drive for the files being shared. Everybody has DSL. I am wanting to be able to work from my home and access the files, via the internet, on each file server.

Observations:
- I am able to intermittently map to the “WIN2000 Server” fileserver using a WIN98 workstation via the internet.
- I am able to consistantly map to the “WIN2000 Server” fileserver using a “WIN2000 Server” workstation via the internet.
- I am unable to map to the “WIN2000 PRO” fileserver, using a WIN98 workstation via the internet.
- I am able to map to one of the WIN98 workstations on the WIN2000 PRO network.
- I am able to ping the “WIN2000 PRO” fileserver but unable to map to the file I need.
- In all cases I am able to ping and/or connect, using PCAnywhere, to any and all servers and workstations from my workstation at home via the internet.

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: Remote access to file server via the internet

Make sure that NetBIOS is bound to your network card on the server/PC you are trying to connect to. Big security risk doing this though...anyone can access your files!! If you have a firewall open to the proper ports with letting static IP's in thru them then you should be fine.

Hello all,

I have a LAN with four Windows XP Pro clients connected to one Windows Server 2003 machine.

I want to access the files in the server when I go abroad. How can I do that ? I've already given all the clients and the server a static IP.

Another question, are there any security threats that I must be aware of when I connect to the server remotely? I don't want to lose all my data!

Hello,

I am trying to configure Remote Desktop Access to work over the internet.
Remote Desktop Access works on my local network.

Both of my computers are on Windows 7 Professionnal. My router is a Belkin F9K1002.

I followed the official widows tutorial. I forwarded the necessary port on my router (I switched from port 3389 to 50000, in case 3389 was blocked by my isp).


Every time I try to connect I get

"Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1)Remote access to the server is not enabled
2)The remote computer is turned off
1)The remote computer is not available on the network
Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled."

Any ideas as to where the problem could be coming from?

I will attempt to be as clear and concise as possible. The situation is that a company is being purchased by another company. Company A is being asked for information by company. Company B wants all of the information required to remotely access company A's servers as soon as the transaction is completed. The problem is company A no longer has IT support or even anyone onsite who is capable of providing this information. Company B has specifically requested a domain password. I have been given this responsibility because I am the closest thing they have to support. I have established remote access between personal computers in the past. But never a company server. How can I direct those onsite through the process of accessing the required information from their servers and then possibly setting up a vpn or remote test to make sure it works? Is a domain password all that company B will require to remotely access servers and network of company A?

Hello,
I've just started with a small company who already have AD and a file server, exchange, etc. They currently use webdav or RDS to remotely access files on the server and everyone complains about having to imput their username and password to open a file and how slow it is. I'm trying to find the best solution to give them access to the files without using the cloud. The main office, where I am has AD. 2 Remote offices have no infrastructure, but using laptops provided by us with domain cached credentials. Then there are 2 people in another country who work from home. I thought VPN either client based for everyone or static between the offices with each office having a DC and syncing files a few times a day. I'm just not sure that is the right choice for such a small company. Circa 30 people. 12 in main office, 5 in the other two offices. Also good to mention, the two other offices do not have a reliable fast internet connection. Please, what solutions do I have without using the Cloud?

Sorry if this topic is in the wrong section. Not sure where it goes.

I would like to setup my server to allow remote access from home. It's on an office network which is separated from the WAN by a router. So long as I'm on this network, I can access the server from any computer connected to it. I enter the https URL of my server through IE and it brings me to the helm interface (the one that comes with Windows Server 2003). I can click on Maintenance and then on Remote Desktop, and it opens a new window with the server's desktop displayed.

If I'm somewhere other than the office network, I can't access it. IE gives me a "can't find webpage" message (or something along those lines). How do I setup my server to access it from outside the office network. I'd prefer to have a similar graphical interface as Remote Desktop.
 

A:Solved: getting remote access to my server

You should be able to access it from anywhere using the MS remote desktop client that ships with xp. The catch is that you have to set your router up to forward all remote desktop requests (port 3389) to your server's ip. From the outside, put IP that your ISP assigns to your router in the remote desktop client and it should open up a login screen. The other option would be to set up an IPSEC connect on your router (if it will let you). Then you connect to your router with IPSEC VPN and it's like your on your network... where ever you are.

Operating system: Windows XP Home

Thurs. nite, something happened to my computer, where files in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM were corrupt or missing. This has happened before, so I threw in my Windows disk and "repaired" it.

I immediately ran the Norton Antivirus (which had updated that morning). HijackThis (nothing unusual), Adaware6 and Spybot.

I have not had a problem doing this before. However this time, I cannot get online. The two error messages I've received are:

Remote Access Server Error. A device attached to the system is not functioning.

OR

Remote Access Server Error. The request is not supported.

I uninstalled Compuserve, then reinstalled, but still get the same error messages.

Also, about 14 hrs. after the computer bombed, Nortons found a "virus":

Virus name: Suspicious Script
Feature: Script Blocking
Action Taken: Blocked
Suspicious action: File System Object: GetSpecialFolder
I called my internet server (Compuserve) who told me that I needed to uninstall, then reinstall DUN.

Hi Team,

My specific question :- is it possible to access the mac via a remote client so that it opens in a window on a Win7 64bit I7 pc?

I ultimately want to control the mac desktop via my win7 pc, mouse and keyboard.

Thanks in advance.

A:Remote Access to Mac mini via VNC client/server

Why wouldn't you just install VNC on your new Mac machine, allowing it to be controlled from the PC?

The product itself is cross-platform.

There are downloads for each host and each client environment.

I'm not a Mac person and only use VNC for Windows hosts and clients. But the product's description certainly shows it as being intended to be cross-platform capable.

The simplest way is to configure an FTP server on the server. That doesn't require any special handling. If you don't have a static IP address, you can use DynDNS or a similar service to map your dynamic IP address to a static URL.

Hey everybody,

Im hoping someone here can help me out. I am running Outlook 2007 on my laptop and Exchange 2003 on a personal server located in my apt.

When I am in my apt. connected to my wireless, as expected, I have no issues sending/receiving email through exchange.

When I am on the road however, I am obviously unable to connect to my exchange server. I setup a VPN tunnel that works successfully and when I manually dial the VPN connection or manually put outlook into offline mode (so that it dials the VPN connection), I am able to successfully get my emails through exchange.

My question is, is there away to setup outlook such that I dont have to manually dial the VPN or put it in offline mode? I set the exchange server account settings to automatically detect my connection status, but it is detecting my network connection as being ok, even though the Exchange server is not located on that network and needs to be dialed in.

I know it sounds lazy and it is, but Id rather not have to manually do anything, especially if I decide to give some of my less computer literate friends email addresses in my domain. Id rather not use IMAP and SMTP due to security issues having to open the ports on the firewall.

I want to put Outlook's PST file on a server on the LAN. I know how to move the PST file--just move it and configure Outlook to use the file from the new location.

Problem is I did that once and then when the server wasn't available for some reason, Outlook automatically created a new PST file on the local C drive in Documents and Settings\user\etc. and started using it.

How can I move the PST file and have Outlook look to the new location and wait until the PST file on the server is available, instead of making a new one when it isn't?
 

A:Moving Outlook's PST file to a remote server?

Mail and data have to go someplace. If the computer is connected to an Exchange server, the data can be held there until it can be moved to a PST. There are also inherent dangers in storing a PST file on a server especially if you have response-time problems like you describe. PSTs in that situation can corrupt very easily resulting in total data loss.

If you were to find an application that forced Outlook to wait for a server response, imagine the frustration to the user who has to wait until the server is back on-line before being able to check their Calendar, Contacts, or e-mail?

Hi there,

On Linux, we can easily enable remote access to MySQL server, but on Windows, I got no success so far ( a client tried to connect to MySQL on the server)

Here's the steps to do that (on the server computer):

1. Open a DOS command prompt on the server.
2. Run the following command from the mysql\bin directory:
mysql -u root --password=
3. A mysql> prompt should be displayed.
4. To create a remote user account with root privileges, run the following commands:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'USERNAME'@'IP' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';

'USERNAME' is the username to be created.
'IP' is the public IP address of the remote connection.
'PASSWORD' is the password to be assigned for this username.
(IP can be replaced with % to allow this user to logon from any host or IP)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> exit;

So it is. But I couldn't connect to that MySQL from another computer, both are Windows XP.

If you have any experience, I'd like to receive your help.

Thanks in advance.

A:remote file access

I would probably start here it is a free vpn software for non commercial use that is easy to set up and I believe it will do exactly what you are after. Just read the documentation.

https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/vpn.asp

If you are after something more secure you will need to set up some sort of ipsec connection and that will cost a little bit of money. The cheapest way is with routers both netgear and linksys make some decent ipsec routers that are relatively inexpensive.

Then you can download a free software client to connect from here.

http://www.shrew.net/software

Or set up routers on both ends and just have an extended lan. It will make your computer directly accessible from work like it is plugged into the lan. The connection is invisible to the user since it is handled at the router level. But then everyone else at work would be able to access your home computer too.
In order to set up ipsec you will need to use a dynamic dns service if you do not have a static ip address.

I don't know what type of security you need the hamachi is like go to my pc except it is a vpn instead of a remote desktop. Which means its using the equivalent of an IM server to set up the connection. Everything is encrypted but in the end you are only as secure as your password and their server. For most data this is fine. If it is sensitive data you may consider an ipsec solution it is a point to point solution and and the password or certificate is only one of the sec... Read more

there is no firewall or antivirus on this computer (I realize how that sounds, but I just support the computer, not manage it) so nothing should be blocking anything outgoing. and I wanted to say maybe there's some sort of ISP issue, but the entire time this problem existed, we were both remoted into the system. to make matters harder to troubleshoot.... it started working out of nowhere, all I had gotten to try was a few pings here and there.

They have one employee who works strictly from home and had been dialing in from home to an Intel Shiva LANRover in the office. After the user dialed in to the office, the Netware server would assign her laptop an IP address (since the server is a DHCP server as well), the server's login script would run mapping the appropriate network drives and then the user could open Groupwise on her laptop and have access to her email. The user has not been able to do this recently and I believe it's due to a problem with the Shiva LANRover (I've never worked on one before and Intel doesn't support it anymore; I've tried using a different modem in her laptop and we've tried dialing in from two different phone line connections). The user has cable Internet access at home, although she's not currently connected to the cable router but that can be taken care of relatively quickly. The customer's office has DSL Internet access.

My question is can the user access the Netware server remotely utilizing her cable Internet access in the same way that she did when she dialed in to the Shiva LANRover (i.e. - can she login to the server from home through her cable router having the login script run and being able to run Groupwise on her laptop at home, having it all work just like if she were in the office). I've done some research on Novell's web site and the Inter... Read more

A:Netware Remote Access Over Internet

Rob -

I'm pretty sure that if your client ran groupwise remote it would make little difference how they actually authenticated to the officies network.

Groupware will authenticate the user using their profile.

If your looking for added security, you may want to consider a router at the office with VPN capability that can authenticate the MAC address of the user instead of using the IP address as cable service might not provide a static IP.

A:Remote Access Via Home Internet

With the proviso that you can open a port or two on the work router, you can use something like tightVNC or UntraVNC, both free. Check them out, I've used tightVNC for some time for remote client support, works very well.

Hi there,
I need to setup a system where my staff can access the internet using the IP address at my buisness.
IE. My staff can log into our marketing software (which will only allow access from my buisnesses IP address) from home.
My thoughts were to leave the computer on at work all the time and then use a remote access program like logmein to remotley control that computer however I am then limited by only having one person able to do this at a time.
I want to be able to use my buisness internet connection as a proxy as such....i think?
Computers are running windows 7. Buisnesses internet connection is DSL with wireless modem

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Ryan
 

A:Want to access internet from remote IP address...how?

You need a VPN firewall/router/concentrator which allows hairpinning.

At first I would run the avast antirootkit tool which would find and fix numerous malware etc. Then it began to find locked files and report unknown MBR code. I also ran Rkill which would find my security center turned off along with other services. I ran Adware cleaner which found over 40 infections. After using these tools to try and rid my computer of the person whos hacking me, and his tools, thats when I was hit with something I dont understand, cant deal with, and I had to report it to the authorities because I have some health problems and this is all just too much.

I established a computer just for clients to login to for their data files. I just getting ready to go live, but noticed under the Properties>Security Tab for several of the more critical folders (Program Files, Users, Windows), includes the following "Group or user names": Users; Administrators; TrustedInstaller; SYSTEM; CREATOR OWNER

Also noticed the c:\USERS folder and the user names within it are visible. I hid just the user folder, but could still change to c:\users and view its folders.

Am I correct that these seem like to glaring security issues.

I have set myself up in the administrator group and the remote access users with "limited" access in the users group

1) Should I (or is there any reason not to) restrict the Program Files, Program Files (x86), Windows folders to the Administrator group only? or will this (probably) prevent the users from using (running) the programs as well?

2) Should each user be granted specific permission (plus me as the administrator) instead of Group level User permission of their individual c:\users\[username] folder.

3) Can/should the c:\Users\[username] folders be hidden?

Any suggestions are appreciated...

A:Controlling/restricting multiple users remote file access.

Post Follow-up:

Well, just realized one problem with hiding c:\users or their sub-folders. Seagate dashboard (ver 2.2.29.0) backup utility to 3tb USB doesn't "see" the hidden folders to backup -- that's a problem....

I un-hid the folders and now backup "sees" the folders

Still looking for suggestions...

I started out with help on Networking; topic "No Ping Response On Media Center"http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/76344/no-ping-response-on-media-center/I couldn't get Remote Access or the LAN / file sharing to work. I'm running XP Media Center on one computer and XP Pro on another. The problem turned out to be Norton Personal Firewall. That's why I'm now posting here.Everything works so long as Norton Personal Firewall is turned off. First question. I'm wondering if I should just leave it off. Windows defender is on. Maybe Norton Personal Firewall is just overkill. I suspect the idea behind having Norton installed (it came with the computer) is for antivirus protection. I'm connected through a Linksys wireless G router and that has WPA2 security on. A friend of mine who knows more about this sort of thing than I do says i don't really need a firewall since I'm behind NAT. Well, ok; but this is a portable computer and I expect to be going places with it ... connecting to networks in different ways. So, I'm thinking I should at least try to get this to work with Norton Personal Firewall on. HP (it's an HP computer) support girl told me that it's much more powerful than Windows Defender and they don't recommend turning it off.I've gone into Norton's Security and tried to configure the firewall so that this will work.

On my Dell Precision T3610, I originally tried using a gForce graphics card for triple monitor display, but that gave enough BSOD's that I eventually gave up, removed the gForce, and went back to the original NVS 310. Occasionally now, sometimes even while I am away from the keyboard, the following situation occurs:

- both of my screens will both go black (as if they are not receiving a signal)
- computer will not restart
- no minidump file is created
- seemingly I cannot remote desktop in anymore, whereas when the screens are working I can remote in
- Powershell Enter-PSSession also hangs, with no error code; existing PSSession *seems* to stay, but commands don't work suggesting a lost connection (I was hoping to devcon restart the device remotely - this does work in normal circumstances, but not after this issue presents)
- Shared network drives are still available. This is interesting, in that it shows the computer is still running.
- Apparently no amount of time causes the computer to reboot, and I think keyboard commands are being ignored.
- Not sure if a different OS works or not; trying to make it work with 10.

I've upgraded graphics card drivers to latest (Jan 29) from the December drivers, upgraded chipset etc based on mfg recommendations. I've tried moving the graphics card between slots internally with no luck. Pretty much grasping at straws at this point - any suggestions?

I've college internet with 20MB per download limit which I feel is very low..On the same network, there are lab computers with unlimited d/l limit(obviously some firewall will prevent access).I want to access lab's internet using SSH tunneling so my PC has unlimited d/l coz i've heard many people have done it in our clg.Also there is something called "squid" on our college's network which prevents access to most sites.Please tell me the steps.

I don't think so you can use SSH to share internet connection.....
maybe they are using it as Proxy to overcome any firewall....

I am able to configure the router to access ftp, web and other services on the Server from the internet but am unable to configure it to access the files and printers. Anybody has any idea, which port needs to be allowed for this?

You need to set it up as a VPN server in order to access files over the Internet.

I have the HP Touchsmart Computer Model IQ508a. It is runing Windows Vista 64-bit.

I recently purchased a prepaid wireless modem and it installe ok but when trying to connect it continued to come up with a error msg and wont connect.

After hours on the phone to Optus, they decided that it was not an issue on there end and more an issue with my computer (supposedly) they were trying to get me to Start the Remote Access Connection Manager but with no luck kept getting error 1068: The dependencies service or group faild to start.

Now i am wondering if this is an issue blocking me out from connecting to the wireless modem, the modem does work on my laptop, and i am unable to create my own dial up connection on my pc!

Any help or info would be great. Thank you!!

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Josh
