Can't Access Network Shared Folders With Android Phone Connected WIFI

Q: Can't Access Network Shared Folders With Android Phone Connected WIFI

5 PCs Connected to Local Network:
1- Win10 Home - V.1511 10586.545
2- Win10 Pro - V.1511 10586.545
2- Win10 Pro - v.1607 14393.105

Win10 v.1511 Home, 2 - Win10 Pro V.1511, and 1- Win10 Pro v.1607 are all hard wired Ethernet.

1- Win10 Pro V1607 connected via WIFI (5ghz)

All Network shares are set, Password Protected Sharing is turned off, on all systems. All PCs open/view/share folders and files as expected between all PCs.

Before install Anniversary Update on 2 PCs, I could Copy files from my Mot Android Turbo 2 phone (connected via WIFI (5GHZ or 2.4Ghz) using Asus File Manager Ap, to any shared PC folders on my network.

After Installing AU 1607 on 2 of the PCs on my network, I can now only copy file to my Windows Home V.1511 PC. All others are requesting User and Passwords for access. Again, Password Protected Sharing is turned off on all PCs....

Hi, I have an Android's phone which can share its internet connection through wifi (as usual). It worked fine for three months since my last message, but not now. Maybe because of some automatic system update ? The laptop's WIFI connection is fine, it works on every spot. But when I share my phone's connection, the laptop see the network, connects to it but I don't have internet access. It says "No internet, secured" and I see the WIFI icon with a yellow exclamation point. I checked Lenovo Support website, with my configuration (Ideapad 710S Plus-13IKB Laptop) but no WLAN driver seems to be missing. So I'm a bit lost :-/ Thanks for your help.

My Lenovo a 516 connects to the virtual hotspot (my pc), but it doesn't actually receive any data. I can't browse or download.

I have a WIFI dongle (wireless usb nano adapter) connected to my pc, which i think works fine. The problem is with pc's settings because i tried this with 2 phones and outcome was the same.

I do not have much knowledge about how these things work and might have messed up some settings (ip, dns mask- all those things they as u to change,, on youtube).

Kindly help me rectify this..

PS: When i connected the phone after installing the dongle very first time it worked just fine, i was able to browse and download. Now. Then the wifi fan symbol in my phone showd 2 arrows, both sending and receiving data. Now when i open the browser and try entering any site it shows only upward arrow and thats it.

Hi

I had posted this question in a few android/phone based forums and unfortunately no one there that can offer a solution. Hence, I joined here and looking for a solution and I am sure it is doable as one of my other phone is able to do it so basically it must be something to do with the settings on the phone or installing an additional pieve of software or app. Here is the question....

I am trying to connect to my office wifi which uses a proxy server.

Scenario 1: I am using Samsung Bada (wave 1), connected to the internet successfully and also any applications that require an internet connection including Samsung's app store.

While, connecting via open networks like home wifi and other friends' wifi also worked without any issue.

Scenario 2: Now I also have an android based Galaxy pocket: even after entering all the required proxy setting as mentioned above, I can access websites via browser but cannot access samsung's app store, google's play store, skype, sipdroid etc.,

I know it is nothing to do with the network administration as I am still accessing via my samsung wave but not via android. Please help me in identifying what I am missing. Is there anything like a network profile I need to assign for these applications?

thanks

Techspotters,

This should be simple to fix but I'm having a problem figuring it out. A customer as 4 PCs, all running XP. 3 are XP Pro and one is XP Home. All are connected peer-to-peer through a router. Assigned all of them to a new workgroup and they can see each other. There is one PC that the others cannot access its shared folders. We can access its shared printer folder. Searched the web and tried various solutions including editing the registry but still nothing's working. We get the error "\\Dad\c is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource" and either "not enough server storage is available to process this command" or "the network path is not found" Also, this one is a laptop that is connceted wirelessly whereas the others are connected directly to the router.

Any suggestions?
 

A:Cannot Access Shared Folders on XP Network

Sometimes there's nothing simple about Windows Networking and File Sharing!

You said they can all see each other?

The only issue is accessing a shared folder on one of the PCs? But the shared printers on that PC are accessible?

To make this easier to discuss particulars, could you tell me the following about each computer and then i (we) can both refer to a machine by name to avoid confusion.

- Machine Name
- XP Pro or XP Home?
- LAN or Wireless connected

And which computer (tell me machine name) has a shared folder not accessible to others.

Also, it sounds like the problem is down to just an authentication issue but i'll offer these links as fyi's you may want to at least skim through to check things. Also, we'll also probably find LanSpy (described in Part1) helpful to diagnose this

Hi all,

OK. Here is the setup.

PC A is in my office running XP Home. My office also contains the Linksys BEFSR41 4 port router to which my cable modem and the other PCs are connected. I have a copy of Zone Alarm running on my pc with my nic card in the trusted zone.

PC B is in my wife's office also running XP Home. She is connected to the network and the internet via her connection to the router. She also runs Zone Alarm with her nic card in the trusted zone.

PC C is in another bedroom running Windows 98 SE. The Microsoft Networking program had been run on it. No Zone Alarm here is this pc is being used for internet access and for backups.

All three PCs can see each other on the network. PC A can see and access the shared folders on PC B. It can only see the shared folders on PC C but cannot access them. PCs B & C can only see the shared folders on the others - cannot access them. Attempts to access the shared folders where I indicate it's not working generates this error: Cannot copy 'example file: Network access is denied. Be sure you have the correct network permissions to perform this operation."

All was working fine until a few weeks ago when I had to move the contents of a failing hard drive to a new one using the hard drive mfg's software. Everything else funtions properly.

Thoughts?
 

A:Home Network - all pc's can't access all shared folders

Make sure you have the same usernames and passwords set up on both XP computers. Try turning off zonealarm on both systems and see if that helps. Check that you have the same network protocols installed on all 3 computers. Make sure all 3 computers are in the same workgroup.

Keep getting error message: "Access to the specified device, path or file is denied." I can only access files on my c:\ and some files from other drives on network. Please help!!!
 

A:Cannot Access All Folders/Applications even though shared on Network

Is the NT server a Domain controller or a standalone server? If DC, then you need an account in the domain. If a standalone you need an account on the server. Otherwise you could enable the guest account, but that is not recommended. Also, make sure that permissions are set for sub-folders as well. If your problems persist, you can create a new sharename for the folder/partition and set the permisions for that. Hope this helps.

Dear All,

I am working in domain with 30 desktops and one server. Every user is able to access shared folders from every other system as per rights assigned.

But in one system, whenever an user tries to access shared folder he gets the following message:

"\\*.*.*.* is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The account is not authorised to log in from this station."
This message appears for all users including local administrator, domain administrator and users.

All systems can be pinged from this system. Also, all other sytems can access shared folders from this system.

Is there any registry related issue or some hardening issue(uses rights assignment)???
or is there some change to be made in ADS related to this particular PC.

Hi folks,

I've received good help from this forum so I want to share a technique that I just discovered for ultra fast access to shared folders that reside on other computers on the network.

1. After setting up my network (a WinXP desktop and a Vista laptop via a router), I found that accessing the shared folder on the laptop from the desktop was quite slow. Using "My Network Places", when I clicked on the laptop, I would have to wait about 19 seconds for the shared folder to appear. This was too slow!

2. If I accessed the shared folder on the desktop from the laptop using Vista's "Network", access was fast though navigation required several clicks. But this was acceptable.

A fix for item-1 that I found is to use "Map Network Drive". Using this, all I have to do is open My Computer and click on the icon for the shared folder on the laptop. This opens the shared folder INSTANTLY! This technique can also replace item-2 above.

"Map Network Drive" is setup on computer-A to map the drive/folder on computer-B.
For example, I run "Map Network Drive" on my WinXP desktop.
..... Open My Computer > Tools > Map Network Drive
..... In the DRIVE: selection text box, it shows the next available drive letter starting backward from Z:. This will be a pseudo drive letter so I just left Z: as the drive letter.
..... I then click the BROWSE button and see the laptop listed. I navigate to the shared folder on the laptop and sel... Read more

I got a trojan the other day that installed a spyware program called Spy Sheriff. There was much cursing and swearing, but after my trusty version of AntiVir as well as a plethora of spyware programs I managed to clean the system of all viruses and spyware as far as I know.

My troubles didn't end for long. Next I got a (fairly common) problem where it says "services.exe has caused an error. Error code 203. Rebooting your computer in 1 minute" or something along those lines. I googled a bit and found that this is often associated with registry keys not matching your actual network setup. Anyhow, I ran a registry cleaner program and THAT problem seemed to go away.

Now however, my network is all messed up.

The printer is hooked up to Office, and is shared. Both computers have a few shared folders that the other can access.

After I ran the cleaner, Bedroom is no longer visible on the network. Office can't see it in the workgroup, and I can't access any shared folders. I CAN ping both computers using the IP addresses, but each computer can't ping the other using the computer's name. Each computer can ping itself using both its own IP and name.

I lost my ability to access my shared folders on my network computer. My setup; my main computer an Acer desktop running Win 7 64 bit. My second a Windows XP computer.

My problem; I can no longer access my shared folders on my XP computer. I had a couple of folders on my XP system set as shared and I had no problems accessing them from my Win 7 system until now. I even had the folders mapped to their own drive letters. And I had no problem sharing my printer over my network.

I've had this setup for about four years now and all of a sudden it just vanished. From my Windows explorer, in Windows 7 I disconnected the mapped drives to see if I could clear it out but nothing. I also noticed I couldn't enable the "Turn on network discovery" in the Advanced Sharing Settings in the Network and Sharing Centre.

I searched online but kept coming up with the same answers. Mainly make sure the following services where enabled:

- TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service
- DNS Client
- Function Discovery Resource Publication
- SSDP Discovery
- UPnP Device Host

The only two that where not enabled where the last to SSDP Discovery and UPnP Device Host, because as long as I can remember the main consensus online was that these two services where BAD.

So I always disable both of these things with every computer I've ever had including this one. All these years and now all of a sudden I can't seem to do without them. No wonder people believe Microsoft is sabo... Read more

Messing with the auto log in won't give you what you want here. And password protected sharing has some glaring faults of remembering passwords which make it not really worth using.

So you want the shared folders on the laptop and the main PC to have exclusive sharing between them. The other two machines you want to prohibit access to the shared folders on both the main PC and the laptop.

It's very simple to do this. Remove the two machines that you want to restrict access for from the Homegroup. Homegroup - Leave

This will prevent them from accessing shared folders on the Homegroup machines unless you share each Library with "Everyone&q... Read more

Hi, I've been trying to find a solution online for several hours now, but have had no luck at all. I'll try my best to describe my situation as concisely as possible:-

I have multiple family members in the household, along with two Win7 desktops and three Win7 laptops. All pc's are on the same workgroup with file and folder sharing working faultlessly - we do not use Homegroups.

I have a large amount of important data on my desktop that serves as a data backup for all work I do on my laptop. On top of this it contains a large amount of media files that get shared to all pc's too. All communication is done over the network. However, as the other family members are far less tech savvy, shall we say, than I, I am growing concerned with how easy it would be for someone else to access my laptop backup work, as it is all business related, and do something disastrous to it.

I would like to have it so that my laptop is the only machine allowed to access this backup data from my desktop. The rest of the shared folders on this desktop would have to remain accessible to 'everyone'.

As I said, I've been doing a tonne of searching, but found no successful solution. I'm now just hoping someone can provide with a definitive solution to this.

Thanks for all your time.

A:Restricting access to shared network folders for specific Win7 pc's

Hello,

I would restrict access to the folder using the security tab within the properties of the backup folder. Change the access so that only one user account (not the everyone group) can access the file. OR just remove the everyone group from the folder access and just set permissions for one of the existing user accounts.

When you need to access this file from your laptop simply use this login to access the folder. Does that make sence?

I have an Android tablet (Asus Infinity TF700) that has a share app called "MyNet". I have shared several folders on my PC (Win 7). The external PC drive (Root J: ) shows up on the tablet, as well as a shared folder. But when I open the J: drive or a folder on my tablet, only one sub-folder shows up, and then only one sub-folder of that one. Yet, windows tells me that the entire external drive is shared to everyone. I have also gone into the folders and sub-folders and shared individual sub-folders and even individual files. Windows shows that these are all shared with everyone, but still only the same few show up on my tablet.

I can share files between my tablet, my phone and a second tablet (all three share things no problem.) But no matter what I do to the sharing on the PC only the same few folders and files show up on the tablet. The ones that do show up will display OK on the tablet (Music/Video/Photos etc.)

I have McAfee Security and it controls Windows firewall, but I don't understand that if either of these were a problem, why would SOME files and folders, and the whole J: drive even show up?

Any help would be welcome.

A:Win 7 - Shared folders don't show up on Android tablet

Try disabling McAfee temporarily as well as the firewall to see if that's blocking it somehow. Personally I don't like McAfee but that's besides the point. Sounds like your tablet doesn't have the right permissions to view the files. You can allow users to view the directories but not contents. Try allowing 'everyone' to have full permissions and make sure it's not hidden. It could also be the software you're using, MyNet. McAfee could be blocking the port it's trying to use or the software itself considering Android is just Linux.

This is my setup:

1. I have a internet gateway(modem/router combo Super G) in the living room. I am using U-verse.
2. I have desktop that has a USB wireless n adapter in my room.
3. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, Norton internet security 2012
Here is my issue:

When my android phone connects to the router by turning on wifi mode, my computer loses its connection, but the phone connects and works fine.
This only happens when I turn wifi on near the computer, or turn wifi on and enter in my room. When the devices are somewhat far apart, the computer doesn't lose its connection. For example, turing wifi on in the living room and stay there, my computer stay connected.
And it happens only when I use a USB wireless n adapter. A USB wireless g adapter doesn't show this problem.
By the way, my android phone is wifi b,g,n compatible.

To test, I turned my laptop on, which is wifi b,g,n compatible, next to my desktop computer and both worked fine. However, when I turn wifi on on my phone, my desktop loses it connection, but my laptop stay connected.

I've check the ip on all the devices, and the devices show different ip addresses so, the router assigned or recognized the devices correctly, I would assume.

So, what seems be the problem? Does anyone know? Thanks.

Hello guys,

I had my phone working on my home network, but after wiping it to try a new ROM, I cannot connect back to my Win8 network.

Previously I was on a Homegroup on 5 PC's in my home... all the same local user account name and NO password.

Now I get a Login Failure message on my phone which lists some things that could be at fault, but none seem right. Ive been trying to change sharing options on my main PC to see if that helps, but it doesnt.

My phone "sees" the main computer when I do a LAN server scan, but clicking on the found server the error says it may be caused by: "WiFi is off, SMB server is out of network scope, The IP is invalid, Blocked by the firewall, SMB service is off" None of which I think are correct since I have not changed anything on the pcs up till now.

Any ideas?

Hi!

I want to acces my phone's internal memory and/or sd-card as a network folder (through wifi). Just like windows pc-s and laptops. How can I do this?

A:How can I set my Android phone to appear as network folder

As far as I know there is no way to enable SMB Share on Android without downloading some software to the phone, There are quite a few file managers that have the option to enable file sharing with almost any OS.
The way I do it on my phone is with a program called AirDroid there is a free and paid version, I use the free version and as far as I know it is not capable of SMB share, you connect to it from a web browser.
There are other option's, you could run a FTP,HTTP server but I'm not sure if it would work since Android is based on Linux and with Linux any port below 1024 requires root.
Now that I think about it SMB requires ports below 1024 (port 445), so any solution you come up with will require that you can change the default port to something like 8080 which is a default port for many Linux OS's to start a service without root.

Hi,

One computer on my network is unable to access any shared folders on any computer on the network. When i access any computer from Run cmd(\\PC) a blank explorer window opens and when i enter a shared folder name(\\PC\share), it gives "Incorrect function" error.

When i click on the computer name in the Entire Network list it gives an error saying "The Server service is not started". I checked Server service which is running, i can ping any computer by IP/Name. This computer can be accessed from other computers.(currently using AVG), OS:WinXP

Things that i have done:
1. Tried winsock reset, IP Reset commands

2. Uninstalled/reinstalled NIC

3. Also Ran a Winsock/Tcp repair utility
4. disabled windows firewall

Things that i havn't tried:
1. Formatting

Is there any expert who can help me?? cause i know this is not a common problem.

Please help!!!

Hi Guys,

No luck trying to access Windows (SMB) file shares on Windows 7 PC on my LAN from my Samsung Galaxy S7 (Android) phone. Tried using Solid Explorer, Astro and Network Browser - all apps return 'connection failure'.

Here is how my Windows LAN and VPN looks:

Have operational LAN with several Windows PC's.
Using Dynamic IP with DDNS service configured.
Windows file shares I like to access are on Windows 7 PC running Home Premium.
Local IP of this PC: 192.168.1.X - Hostname: GigaServer.
Windows 7 PC requires regular Windows authentication using User name and Password. This works fine.
I can ping the Windos 7 PC Local IP address fine as well as its DDNS name.
Running Norton Security Firewall with port forwarding set-up properly.
I have an OpenVPN Server set-up on my Netgear Router and I can access resources on my LAN properly using OpenVPN Clients on several Windows Laptops.
Also configured OpenVPN client on my Samsung GalaxyS7 Phone without any problems. The VPN clients connects properly.
On the Windows side everything works fine. I can reach Windows File Shares on the target Windows 7 PC and open them via Windows Explorer on any remote Windows PC.

Tried to use Solid Explorer, Astro and Network Browser Apps on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Smartphone to connect to the SMB File Shares but all return 'connection failure'. The Apps do not find the Windows 7 Host on my LAN - using either Hostname or Local IP Address (192.168.1.X).

Someone asked me to help them with their wired network card no longer working after installing the software for their Android phone on a Windows 7 PC.

I tried uninstalling the card, re-installing it, and many other things, but it keepssaying there might be a problem with the driver and that no connection is available. It does detect when the network cable is unplugged.

I ran out of ideas to fix this, any suggestions?

Thanks

Is the network card a separate card or is it onboard the motherboard? What is the make and model# of the motherboard/computer?

Hi everyone,

I have two machines both running Vista (one a 32-bit Home Premium laptop and another 64-bit Home Premium desktop). These machines are on my private network behind a home router. My laptop has a folder that's being shared (procedure used: right click folder, click sharing, gave "Everyone" full access, clicked ok). I went into Network and Sharing Panel and turned off password sharing, enabled public sharing (not that it pertains to this case, but I enabled it just in case). I then went on my desktop and right clicked "My Computer", clicked map network drive, and attempted to map "\\192.168.1.102\NOC". I got nothing. My desktop claims that the laptop wasn't responding. This is my problem: I can't access my shared drive from my desktop to my laptop. HOWEVER, I can access my desktop's shared folders from my laptop. Below I will list everything I've done to attempt to fix the issue. I hope you all can give me new suggestions.

1. Compare advanced firewall settings for both computers
2. Open up ports 138, 139, 445 on my laptop
3. nmaped my laptop from my desktop. The results claim the above mentioned ports are closed even though I manually opened them. I then turned off my laptop's firewall and ran nmap again. This time port 139 and 445 came up as "filtered".
4. Ran wireshark on my laptop while my desktop attempted to make a connection. Wireshark didn't see any packets from my desktop except f... Read more

A:Access to shared folders

Well, I'd start by disabling all the firewalls totally.

Can you ping each way by computer name? That's the first thing to get working.

Let's see this from each computer.
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

Note that there is a space before the -n or the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the - or / in the following commands.

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I often have an intermittent problem with access to shared folders on various machines on our home network.
I have went into advanced sharing of all folders in question and I cannot see any way to make them any more shared than I already have them.

I may try to get a file from a one computer for use in another and no matter what I try I constantly get this :


I am the network administrator and I cannot figure out why things decide to not work.

I may have been able to access the files yesterday and it may allow me to access them tomorrow.

This is very annoying and somewhat frustrating.

How do I fix ?

Can anyone help me out there? When I try to access a shared folder on my network I get the following error message: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

I've made sure all the computers on the network have the same workgroup name, all accounts are computer administrator's and restarted all cpu's. That's all I've done and know how to do so far.
 

A:can't access shared folders

From a JohnWill post:

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

I just bought a media server(MS) with an Ethernet connection and attach it to my router(with wireless features). Connected to this router is my server and a number of wireless laptops. After setting up the system I am able to access my server or laptops from the media server end, ie the laptops and server appear on the media server. I am UNABLE to access the MS's hard drive from my laptops or server(ie no ICON/shared folders appears on my server or laptops), even though the media server has an IP address and I am to ping this IP address and get a response, ie no lost packets.

I then try using the net view command on this IP address I get the following message:

System error 53 has occurred
The network path not found.

My MS does not have that many options to change. This MS has a hard drive which I like to access which I cannot.

Many thanks if anyone can help. I can supply more info if required.

My Del laptop with XP Pro SP2 has been able to access shared folders on another PC (also with XP Pro) where we have our QuickBooks installed. Something has happened that now won't let me access ANY shared folders on that PC!! I can ping both ways. HEEEELLLLPPPP meeeee.... I'm sinking....

I created a new folder on the server PC under the C: drive. I shared it out. I can see it from the laptop but upon selecting it I get: "\\Server\VGS Quickbooks is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin... " I've checked for security tabs and can't find anything that helps.

hi im having trouble accessign shared files on one of my networked pcs, I am suspecting that it has some policy set to not allow sharing over network. I have shared the folder, then in the firewall settings tab it says that there is a group policy and in fact i cannot switch the firewall on or off as this is controlled by the policy apparently. How can i change this sharing setting in the policies? I am not aware of having ever set any policies on this pc

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect

And since i have 2 computers, i wonder how can i access this 2 computers with administration access. I read the mircrosoft site, and i turned off the simply sharing options. But i still can't figure it out. All i want to do is access the drive that i keep all the files, but not the system drive.
All I want is to let these 2 computers to access each other and have full control, and want to prohibit my friends on network to see my shared folders and access them. I am now in the same workgroup named "Home".

A:Shared Folders Over The Network

Hello LVL50RR9,

Sounds more likely to be a firewall issue rather than an AV issue. are you trying to install an AV suite that contains a firewall?

If so you need to open the required ports on the W7 PC to allow file sharing.

I normally open ports 135 - 138 and 445 for win 7 - how you do this depends on the firewall involved

hope this helps

I was at a home today and connected to their private home network on a Surface Pro 4. This showed their network as Connected. However, the internet kept going to a local open BT network instead! I couldn't select this open network anywhere to exclude it. Thinking about it now, I should have disabled/reenabled Wifi first, and then tried a reboot after that. But otherwise, is there any hidden setting to ignore certain networks?

A:Using 'open' access Wifi point instead of connected private wifi.

Hello and welcome to the TenForums

If the home where you were had a BT hub then it most probably was offering both an open connection also known as BT Wifi or BT Fon and also a secured wifi connection which would have an SSID number with a BThub name with some random numbers and letters. It is possible that you connected to the open one and were then automatically directed to a BT broadband page on the internet to pay for use of the BT hotspot service that they provide via customers routers. See this article for more info: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/d...fi-with-fon%3F
