Pc to Smartphone sharing issue

Q: Pc to Smartphone sharing issue

Hi 7forums!
I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installed on my laptop(from factory). Till few days ago, I could turn it into Hotspot via the stock Hotspot app & used to connect my android smartphone for normal wifi file transfers. But now that app by which I used to create hotspot is missing somehow(coz I can't find it installed apps). So, I give a try to other hotspot creators(virtual hotspot, Wifi hotspot creator setup, etc)... None of them worked. So, I created ad-hoc but soon learned that android phones don't connect to ad-hoc networks. An app called "mHotspot" shows even a problem with my drivers & asked to restore it but in vain. At last...I searched the net about file sharing methods but most of them state that phone must be connected to computer.

My laptop only has essential softwares by factory & I haven't modified any of 'em.

So please if u have that stock hotspot app(black-ish background with only two options: SSID & Password & Start button), kindly share it here.

Please help me to create wifi hotspot on my laptop so that I can connect my phone the usual way like before:crying:

Thanks in advance...

Hi, I've had issues with my HP Spectre x360 4103-no.  I try to connect my smartphones (LG G3, LG G4 and HTC One M7) via USB and it connects but a second later it ejects. Sometimes when I move the phone or the computer while still connected, the PC ejects the device even though the USB cable is still in. I've tried multiple cables, all 3 of my USB ports and 3 different smartphones. I probably need to point out that this issue is alot more common with LG's.I don't remember this happening with the iPod or flash/harddrives even though I plug them in the same ports as the smartphones. This issue had me desperate! I've needed to borrow others, sometimes cheaper, PC's and it will work. Why is this even an issue with this flagship HP. Please help, I would appreciate it

Settings: P2P w/ XPHome + external app (Sabre if you need to know).

Workstation A sports a fully (as much as WinXP home allows) shared folder. Others can read, write, modify, delete, etc. files. That has been verified.

When Sabre writes files into that folder, they are NOT accessible from the other workstations. They are listed in Win Xplorer, but CAN'T be opened, even less modified or deleted. They are considered by Windoze as being still in use.

However, I retain full control over these files from workstation A, where I can move them to another folder, then move them back. Hence allowing full access to them from the the rest of the network.

Conclusion: It has to do with the way Windoze handles files, some switch the Sabre app didn't set properly.

Question: What gives?

I frequently share entire drives and occasionally I get 'you don't have permission' errors when I attempt to access the
\Documents and Settings\[user] folders from a remote computer on the same LAN. All other folders are available. I then go back to the computer containing the shared drive and share the [user] folder. Sometimes this works and even then sometimes this still doesn't give me remote access.

I set up all these machines, myself, and don't know of anything I did differently on any one of them; but, still, some will give access and some not. None of the folders, by the way, are made private or encrypted.

Although this has been a problem that has popped up on several networks over the years, all four of the machines in today's incident are identical HPs of the same model, all purchased on the same day.
What do I need to look at here as I have exhausted my small basket of networking knowledge.

I already understand the ramifications of sharing entire drives, including the OS partition, so let's not sidetrack the thread with that, please.

I connect USB drives (Usb keys, mp3 players, other types of external Usb drives) to my computer. Then I share them so that I can access them from other computers of my LAN.
When the USB drive is a fAT 32 formatted drive, I have no problem accessing it from other computers. But when it's an NTFS formatted drive, eventhoug I was able to enable sharing on it, I can see it from other computers, but I get "permission denied" error when I double click on the drive from within the windows explorer.
In the sharing options of the NTFS formatted USB drive, I made sure that all permissions are not restricted (Full Control Permissions
to everyone).
PS: I have no problem sharing local NTFS drives (drives that are on the IDE controllers) on the Network. How come that's not working with the external USB drives formatted as NTFS?
All the computers of my LAN are windows XP Pro computers.
BTW: Does it work differently on windows 2000?
I remember having same issues on win 2000 pcs, even with the FAT 32 drives.

A:Sharing issue from laptop to PC

If you can't see the PC at all then you may want to check that both machines are in the same Workgroup.

You would also want to set up the advanced share permissions from the D:>Users folder rather than the D: drive itself.

For the machine or it's drives to be visible you would also need to turn on Network Discovery, File and Printer sharing etc. in the Advanced Sharing settings at the Network and Sharing Center.

Check those options and let me know.

Been working with a client who's two identical W7Pro desktops will no longer "see" each other in their Homegroup (HG). This network sharing ran well for almost a year and recently fell apart for no apparent reason.

1. Removed all AV products and disabled the firewall on both PCs
2. Renamed the HG and reset the password.
3. Setup user accounts/passwords on both PCs.
4. Ensured advanced sharing configurations were open and identical.
5. Shut down and rebooted both.

I walked away feeling good that I beat the HG into submission. a few hours later the two PCs discontinued the shares.

Now I'm no longer in the profit margin. Thinking of setting up a mapped drive between the two.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Experiences?

Hey everyone. I am having a little trouble sharing a printer that's hooked up on this machine (Windows 7 64)

I am trying to share the printer with a netbook (Windows 7 32) and another desktop running XP Home.

So far, I can get the netbook to print correctly, but the XP system just won't print (I can, however see my machine from the other one's networking)

In addition, whenever I try to access one of the other systems from here (IE, to put files on my wife's netbook) I am getting a Network login prompt for a login and password. I also get the same prompt when I try to access the XP machine.

Any ideas of what I should try? In homegroups / advanced settings I already have the following set,

Turn on Network Discovery
Turn on file and printer sharing
Turn on sharing so anyone with network access.....
Use 128-bit sharing...
Turn off password protected sharing

These options are set for both "Home or Work (current profile) AND "Public"

A:File sharing issue

Sharing the root of a drive is a bad idea. You should instead create a specific folder for sharing, and share that one only.

Note that many firewall suites will block Windows File Sharing. Also note that if both machines don't belong to the same workgroup, you'll have to use the "Browse entire network" icon in Windows to see the share. Furthermore, when you create a share you should give it a specific name to refer to it later.

Hi

I'm trying to connect to the shared documents of other computers on my network by typing in the IP address in internet explorer or mozilla firefox but having no luck. I've recently moved house and set this network up, I had an identical network in my old house, using the same equipment and I was able to access the files this way. I orginally started doing it that way because I could never get it to work using Windows networking settings and found it not a problem at all. My router uses DHCP so assigns new IP address each time I connect, this isnt a problem as I dont need to share files very often but do occasionally. I used to check the IP ad on the one computer then enter it in firefox on the other one and it always worked, but now on my new network it doesnt and I have no idea why, except that perhaps it could be something to do with a firewall as one of my machines is my work computer and had pre-installed zone alarms integrity client and will not let me play with the windows firewall settings. This was the only difference I could see from the setup I had before. I just always get the error message (in firefox) "the connection was refused when trying to contact (for eg) 192.168.1.117.

Checklist for networking Windows Machines with TCP/IP
-----------------------------------------------------
- PCs which are not XP must have TCP/IP installed.
- Each PC must have a unique computer name.
- Each PC must have a network share defined.
- ALL NICS must be on the same subnet (e.g. IP 192.168.0.* subnet mask 255.255.255.0).
- XP PCs must have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (only essential for XP to talk to W9X PCs).
- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

I think i've tried every solution I could find, but I would like you to prove me wrong. Here's the situation:
On the network, there is 1 wireless vista laptop, 1 wireless seven laptop, my wireless seven laptop, 1 xp netbook, 1 wireless media hub with an attached drive, and 1 wireless printer.

The other win7 laptop can be accessed by the other computer but not by mine and can access the other computer,but not mine. My guess is that I somehow played with settings I shouldn't had.

Here's what works or not for mine. No one can access me and I can't access anyone. The wired xp computer cannot see my shared folders, but can see the computer when I go on network/all network/microsoft windows network/mshome (or something like that, I have a french computer). The other windows 7 laptop can see me but not access files. I can see it too but not access the files. But the wired xp can access the files on the other 7. I can access the printer without any problem. Also,every media device shows on the list(the hub and shared libraries of the other 7 computer).

Now for my computer settings: Network is set at home with the following settings`: network discovery on, file and printer sharing at on, public folder at on, media streaming on, enabled 40 or 56-bit encryption, password protected off and allow homegroup managed by windows.

We all are on the mshome workgroup.

This should fix it alone --->Turn on password protected sharing for the machines.
But I'd also choose "allow Windows to manage homegroup connections" and disable IPv6 on all machines. Also disable IP Helper service.

When the USB drive is a fAT 32 formatted drive, I have no problem accessing it from other computers. But when it's an NTFS formatted drive, eventhoug I was able to enable sharing on it, I can see it from other computers, but I get "permission denied" error when I double click on the drive from within the windows explorer.
In the sharing options of the NTFS formatted USB drive, I made sure that all permissions are not restricted (Full Control Permissions
to everyone).
PS: I have no problem sharing local NTFS drives (drives that are on the IDE controllers) on the Network. How come that's not working with the external USB drives formatted as NTFS?
All the computers of my LAN are windows XP Pro computers.

Thanks for helping

Hello,

I am having an issue with shared files on my networked Windows XP Professional systems. I am using simple file sharing on all the machines where files are being shared. Within the shared folders I have several music files which are unaccessible from other machines. Oddly, I am able to access about 90 percent of the files in a given folder; there are usually two or three songs which do not show up through the network. Additionally, all machines in question are using NTFS and are malware free. Let me know if additional information will be of use in exploring this issue.

Thank you for your time and efforts.

Sincerely,

Matt

A:File Sharing Issue

If the files were added after the folder was shared,permissions may
not have passed down to them.
You will need to right click on each file,click sharing and security,
and see if they have sharing enabled.
I suppose an easier way to do it would be,disable the share on the
entire folder and then share it again.

First, I know there are several similar issues posted. That being said, heres what I amy trying to do. I have a dell optiplex gx270 desktop with 2 ethernet cards (intel pro/1000 mt and ADMtek an983), a hp dv6815nr laptop using wireless, a us robotics maxg router and a novatel ovation ev-do broadband usb stick.

While runing xp on the desktop, I was able to connect one ethernet card to the uplink on the router and share that with the usb stick to have the whole network online. the second ethernet card allowed the desktop to communicate with the rest of the network.

After upgrading to Win7 on the desktop, the same configuration no longer works. Additionaly eaiter ethernet card, when connected to the uplink on the router, shows unidentified network and access type no network access in the network and sharing center. Any suggestions on getting this to work?

Are those two accounts password protected? If they are and you don't know the passwords, you may not get much help here. Have you tried to access them through the network while they are actually logged on?

Did some searching and can't seem to find a solution to this issue.

I have 3 computers on the same network all using Windows 7 build 7000. 1 is 32bit and the other 2 are 64bit. The 2 64bit machines have no trouble sharing files between them but neither can access the 32bit machine. The 32bit machine has no trouble connecting to and sharing with the 64bit machines.

This is the error message i get when trying to connect to the 32bit machine (named ME-PC for illustrations sake):

" \\ME-PC 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.

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

Permissions are set so Everyone can read/write, not using a Homegroup (using "Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers"), password protected sharing is turned off. All the settings are the same across all 3 computers but fore some reason the 32bit one is being difficult.

So i had a home network of 4 machines, all plugged in via net cables. these are routed through a couple of switches through my house that all lead back to a single router controlling my cable connection sharing was spotty in XP, so i used IPX and all was well.

Now im at a total loss.
I brought up Server in a remote session in my primary box (within screens range of the HT). And made Every Single network setting identical on the HT machines as the Server machine.

Hey chaps.

I have just got bt broadband, and a homehub v2. The main router that is being used is a TP- Link TD-W8960N which is then plugged into a powerline adaptor. This comes out of the other powerline adapter in another room and goes into the bt homehub which I am using as a hub, the ethernet cable comes off this into the desktop and into the xbox.

I am able to get onto xbox live no problem but I am not able to share videos to my xbox from my pc. In my old setup I was able to do this no problem just running straight off the tp-link router.

Can anyone help?

Hi

It seems that Seven doesn't like a lot file sharing with a linux file server using Samba.

That was allready the case with Vista but samba get up to date, and some issues where fixed.

Now I would know if some here have issues with Seven.

If yes can you please give some details:
Linux distrib
Samba version
Seven Build
And a short explaination.

My case:

Linux Debian R4
Samba 3.024
Seven 7000 x64

My issues:
Network share are well discovered, but really slow for navigate into. For the video films it's impossible to open one. Copying long files (video) crash the server (samba), need to restart it.. sometimes, need to restart all the server because the storage drive is like locked.

All work very fine with XP (but not from and guest virtual Machine with the seven host), and work great with Vista.

When trying to access the network share all my network get slow and I have deconnexion (MSN, web, etc).

I found that for fixing:

A:Linux Samba fil sharing issue

This is the first I've heard of ANY issues with Samba and windows.
Sounds to me like a hardware issue or network issue.
You need to elaborate more.....
The hardware of the server? The clients?
Is your network setup properly? IPs? How are they shared? Samba security?
Are these Linux or Unix OSes? Cause I know Unix has some compatibility issues with Vista or higher.

From the looks of your vague specs, everything needs updating... For example, cause samba is up to version 3.3203311

I am trying but not having any luck sharing my picture file folder from a Vista to an XP machine, both which are on my home network. I have managed previously to accomplish the sharing of my music file folder as well as my video file folder from the vista to the xp, but must not be doing something right to accomplish the sharing of the picture file folder. On the vista machine I right click on the picture file folder, select share from the drop-down menu, then a file sharing dialog box pops up entitled "Choose People to share with." In front of the Add box shown there, I click on the down arrow in the blank box and then select "Everyone (All users in this list)", then click on the Share button at the bottom of the box. A file sharing box box pops up and says "Sharing items... this may take a few minutes" before the file sharing box says "Your folder is shared." I click on the Done button. Then when I check on my XP machine to see if the folder has been shared, I still see only that my video and music folders are there but not the picture folder. When I go back to the vista machine and click on the properties of my picture folder, then click on the Sharing tab, it says Not Shared.
Any advice welcome, thanks.

I have a brand new Alienware desktop with Win7 home. Hooked to it is a netgear router. Upstairs I have a 2-yr old Dell Studio 15 running Win7 Pro. I have designated shared folders on each computer. When I open the Network library? on each computer both machines show up. I can look into the Studio and grab files from shared folders but not the other way around; I get an error message saying I need administrator permission. Both machines show the same password for the network but I have disabled password required network sharing. This has to be simple. I need to be able to swap files back and forth between them and could do so freely and simply when I had an older XP machine downstairs. I am the owner of both machines and the only one using them. I have no trouble getting on the internet from the Studio upstairs.

You didn't mention if you set up a Homegroup between those two Windows 7 machines or not?

Setting up a Homegroup would ease up the file restrictions although you still need to ensure that the C:>Users folder is shared out with Everyone through the Sharing tab.

Having a very odd issue when trying to share my printer (Canon Pixma ip4300).

When I try to enable Printer Sharing in the Network & Sharing Center, it gives no errors, but just stays off all the time.

When I try to share the printer from the printer properties page I get the following dialog -
"Printer settings could not be saved. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000007a).
This also writes an alert into the event log (System), giving event ID of 19 and when following the link to the MS site leads here - http://technet2.microsoft.com/windo...26b2-4239-b369-ef2765da44cc1033.mspx?mfr=true
I have tried the instructions in that article, all to no avail. I have also done an sfc /scannow which came up clean.

Any clues anyone? This is baffling me.

I've got 2 computers, both on Win XP SP2, both have the same user/password combination and are connected on a switch. File system is NTFS.

My problem concerns the sharing of folder in Windows. For some reason occasional folders do not show up.

I.e. I share a folder X with sub dirs Y and Z and Z has sub dirs 1 and 2. However for no apparent reason the remote machine can't see sub dirs 1 and 2? If I enter the full path in explorer I can see what's in those dirs and I have no messages saying I don't have access or anything, it just refuses to show up!?!?

I've never had any issues like this before. I've tried going to advanced options and propagating user rights throughtout the directory structure but to no avail. I've noticed that all the folders have a greyed out Read Only attrib set which I can uncheck and apply to sub folders but if I look at it again it's reappeared.

If you want me to post anymore info let me know, also if this should be in the WinXP forum please move it.

I'm really confused by this? Any ideas??

Thanks in advance,

Paul.

After the latest Microsoft Update installed on 20SEP2016, KB3193494, my new laptop has network sharing issues.

Firstly, the problem ONLY occurs on a very new laptop where I allowed KB319494 to install. The older Win7 box and the Win10 desktop (KB3193494 not installed) still work fine.

1> After the update installed; nothing but the laptop would show under "network" in Windows Explorer.
... Discovered ALL network types were set to "public". Tweaked settings to "private" to the two networks I have extant. Reset sharing and network discovery to "on". All other computers on the system (4) now show up.

2. After spending a lot of troubleshooting time looking at network settings and having to re-install a HP printer driver again I was able to get the laptop to work on the network IN WIRED ETHERNET ONLY.
... The weirdness is that when I shift to 802.11n; the printer disappears from the device list again. If I plug the ethernet cable back in; it comes right back up.

2. This issue has me scratching my head as I'm sitting here troubleshooting with two laptops and a desktop computer side by side. The desktop and the old Win7 laptop print fine on wireless. The brand new Asus ROG will not longer communicate with the printer on WiFi.

Anyone have some constructive ideas on this issue?

Hi,
Newbie here and i'm sure you've heard this one before so apologies and thanks in advance for any help. I'll try to be as thorough as possible.

Two PC's Desktop running XP Home with internal generic 10/100 NIC and AOL 9 silver BB 512k, (i can see you all cringeing), Laptop running XP Pro PCMCIA 10/100 NIC connected together via a Netgear 10 base T 4 port hub, (cos it was there and cheap).
Have gotten the PC's seeing each other, shared drives etc etc.
Cannot get ICS to work, AOL say can only work via a router and only on gold or platinum or bloody titanium or nickel alloy, etc, but not silver? In short v unhelpful, considering they told me i couldn't use the gold as the phone line isn't good enough, (previous long running problem).
OK so I believe there's a way of doing this and don't want to go to the expense of a router if i can avoid, have tried using AnalogX proxy but can't make sense of it, additionally can ping laptop from desktop but get request timed out vice versa, have verified IP addresses for both network connections, checked ICS, etc.
Help please.

P.S. If i have to go the Router route, what should i expect to pay for a 4 port, (will be adding another desktop PC in the near future)

A:Internet connection sharing / LAN issue, HELP

As long as you have internet connection on the main machine, you can share the internet connection and It doesn't matter if its cable, dsl or dial up. You say you have a local area network working properly. Do you have firewalls on both machines? If you are using firewall, you might need to configure your firewall software on both machines.

Router is a better idea for internet connection sharing. Most of the new routers has firewalls. You will be saving your system resources too. On ebay you may find them for really cheap.
