Network Folder Sharing And Port Opening


My network is like this: laptop -> f-secure firewall of the laptop -> ~wireless~ -> desktop -> windows firewall of the desktop -> internet

The ports are opened in both my and desktops firewalls (i reinstalled windows yesterday - before it was working perfectly. ). Even tried turning my laptop's firewall off - no help.connection cannot be made through the ports.

And another problem: the shared network cannot be seen (though i have the internet access). My laptop cannot see the desktops folder (could see before the installation) and my desktop cannot see my laptop's. Tried going through everything in windows explorer (folder sharing) and control panel (network, system (this one to change the work-group)).

Folder Keeps Opening Up

Every time turn on my computer, the c:windowssystem32 folder automatically opens (full screen). Under one user account, it opens up completely, under another user account it doesn't open up but an error message opens up (about 5 or 6 times) saying that the folder should be associated with another file. This leads me to believe that the desired setting to change is in the user's settings someplace but i can't find where. Or i am wrong completely.

Remove Local Printer Port - Change Print Driver Associated With Port

How do i remove a local printer port, or change the print driver associated with the port. I added a local printer port machine-name-printer-name to address a printer that's attached to an xp machine on my home network. There was no driver for my printer (hp officejet v. 40 or the v series), so i tried installing it with the officejet d series. Well, the test page didn't work. I deleted the printer via control panel, but apparently the local port didn't delete. I can't add the printer again, i can't delete it, and i can't change the driver. So i'm stuck.

Virtual Usb Port Not Available In Printer Port Drop Down List

When trying to add a local printer (hp laser jet 6l) connected to my windows 7 professional dell laptop via a usb port, the virtual usb (usb001) port option is not listed in the printer port drop down list. There are no usb port options listed. Creating a new port does not work either.

Since the hp laserejet 6l requires a parallel port, which is not available on the laptop, i am using a usb to parallel cable. I have installed a driver for the 6l, which w7 recognizes. But the computer is not communicating to the printer. What needs to be done to get the virtal usb port (usb001) option in the drop down list?

File Sharing Network Issues

I have three computers running on my network. 2 computer have windows 7 ultimate 64bit and 1 has windows vista ultimate 32bit. One of the computers is wireless (windows 7) the other 2 are wired. When i first turn on my wireless computer i have full internet and file sharing connections. I continue to have full connections until about about a half hour or until i lock that computer. Then when i start to use that computer again i have internet connections but my file sharing connections are messed up. I only can share files with the windows vista computer. When i try to access and share files with the other windows 7 computer it says windows cannot access.

I try and click diagnose but it cannot find anything wrong with it. Can anyone help me find out what is wrong with this? The only other way i can start to share files with both computers is to either restart my computer or go into computer management disable and then re enable my network card (that seems to work most of the time). My router and wireless card are only about a year and a half old. It is a linksys speed booster brand. Wrt54gs i think.

Sharing Two Machines In One Network, Xp And Win 7

Sharing two machines in one network, xp and win7, can't access to the xp files from the 7 machine. I have two computers, one is connected to wlan router directly, and the other one is a laptop. I set them to the same workgroup, enabled sharing and everything, and i can access to the win7 files from the xp using password. But, when i try from my laptop (with win7 installed) i can't see any computer connected, so i can't access to the xp files. When i type "net view" in command prompt, i get error 53, "the network path was not found".

In other location, when i connect my laptop to a lan using a cable, i can access to the lan's internet, but not to it's network folders. My laptop has windows 7 ultimate 64 bit installed

Media Player Network Sharing Service

After upgrading to a larger hard drive i reconnected my xbox 360 to my home network and began re-sharing my media on my main computer to it. I don't leave it hooked up all the time because the cable has to stretch across the floor. The odd thing this time is, i came in to use my computer the next day and it was slow, very slow. When i looked at the gadgets it showed my ram usage as 94-97%! 

When i started up the task manager and had it show all processes, the windows media player network sharing service was eating up that much ram. I shut it down and within minutes it had started up again and began eating ram like it was candy. It only took it about 3 minutes to once again eat up nearly all 3gig of memory. I have to  go in and shut it down manually at least 3 times a day.

Network & Sharing Center / See Full Map

When i use the "see full map" in the network & sharing center it works fine and shows my pc connected to my switch then to the gateway to the internet, but after the machine has been to sleep and been wakened the map shows a question mark between my pc and the switch? The question mark is labeled "unknown".

Thinking this could be some sort of trojan i have scanned my pc with all of the usual virus detectors and malware detectors but nothing shows. If i do a reboot the map resets to what i expect, but if the machine goes to sleep or hibernate the question mark re-appears. I am using windows 7 home premium.

Media Player Network Sharing Services Issue

Right after i go on line media player network services grabs 2gb of memory and 70 percent of the cpu usage, and the hard drive usage light comes on solid - this makes using the internet almost impossible since the clock is on for several minutes at a time - this computer is only used by two 'users' and only has a limited amount of stored music, no videos or tv shows - how can i shut off the service - or restrict it's ability to consume resources. This is an acer aspire 5532 with 3gb memory and a 160g hdd.

Quicker Network Folder Navigation

I have recently upgraded to win7pro on a company network. The files and folders i use are predominantly on network drives. In my previous version of windows (win2kpro), i put lots of folder shortcuts into the links toolbar which was always available in windows explorer. I also had a shortcut to the links folder in my documents. This made it easy to hop around between folders.

In win7, i have tried to do the same by putting my folder shortcuts into a "network links" folder (on a network drive), and putting a shortcut to that folder into the favorites. But i can't find a quick way back to the favorites folder without scrolling the navigation window to the top. My workflow has slowed in this area. It's frustrating me. Is there something i'm missing?

Cannot Connect To Network Folder Or Printer After Update

Suddenly after february update i cannot access the network folders, our network printers with my windows 7 machine and the logon script is not running because its on a shared folder. After a late night trying different solutions i did a system restore to a date before the update and it work directly after reboot.

Some time later the updates is reinstalled and the problems is back. When i try to connect to a computer or server in the network by typing computername or ipadress in file explorer i get the error 0x0004005 and also all my network printers are offline.

Internet access and all other access is possible, i can connect to other computers with remote desktop and from them connect to shared folders on my local win 7 pc. What the heck has happened? I also tested all the network trouble shooting guides but they find nothing.

No Com Port / Printer Port

Dell inspiron 530, dual core cpu and 4 gb ram. I blew away the vista install because dpc latency was high. Installed win7 ultimate. Fixed the latency issue, but now i don't see any com port or lpt port. There was one under vista. My programs need them to operate. I don't have a serial port in the machine (it's only 18 months old), but there was a com port indicated in the previous device manager under vista. Am i looking in the wrong place? My firewire card shows up in device manager just fine, no issues.

I show a virtual serial bus enumerator from eltima, under the system devices shows proper operation.

Sharing Wireless Network Between Win 7, Xp, Wireless Printer

I had no trouble sharing my wireless network when the desktop was xp and the laptop was xp. Since replacing the desktop with a new windows 7 unit, i cannot manage to set up a network. I just purchased a new wireless printer, and i cannot set it up wirelessly either. I can network the printer to work with the win7 desktop if i connect the printer to my router with a ethernet cable. My router sees all 3 devices and i can ping the printer and the laptop from the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

Cannot Get Laptop To Turn On Usb Port

I have windows 7 home premium and a zune 80 gig. The zune is stating error 5 contact support. I am trying to recover the files on the zune. I have drained the battery, waited weeks, etc. When i usb it to the computer it says the device has problems and the usb port or connection has been "turned off". There is no option to turn it on anyway. I have recently downloaded a recovery program, so if i can just get the computer to turn on the usb connection, even though it has problems, i may have a chance. Anyone know how to do this, or have any other ideas?

Access Denied On Installing Port

I am currently running windows 7 ultimate n 32 bit, and i am trying to install port io32, however when trying to install, it fails and says access denied. I have only one profile, and it of course has administrator abilities. I even tried manually placing the .dll and .sys files (.sys in win32/drivers, and .dll in win32), still no luck. I've searched and searched with no real answers. I also changed ownerships of all files, even the entire c drive, as well as changed permissions to any profile that showed up in the security tab. Please help, it's been a nightmare. Xp was simple.

Null Port For File Conversion

I've installed quick books 10 on my pc. In conjunction i've installed a nul port in devices called quickbooks pdf converter 3. 0. The pdf converter allows you to convert a quick books file to a pdf. Attached is a small . Bmp (hopefully you can read it) showing the configuration.

With xp pro, i didn't have to do this conversion. I just did a 'save as' and made referenced a pdf extension. The problem: everytime i reboot, the nul port goes away and i have to add it again under devices. Kinda a pain. Thoughts?

Parallel Port Access Through Xp Mode

I have a digital potentiometer evaluation board that is controlled using the parallel port. It uses the library ntport and i believe it uses the dlportio.sys driver. The software for it is not supported in 64-bit machines which i use so i downloaded xp mode hoping that it would work in a vm.

I have installed the eval board software and the program gui runs in xp mode but it is not sending data to the board (the resistance across pins on the board is not changing like it should). I am not sure what my problem is and i was hoping for some suggestions. I am not completely certain i even have the dlportio driver but i imagine it was included in the cd that came with the eval board (as ntport did).
