Hi,

I just reformatted and reinstalled windows on my desktop and tablet pc,
my desktop with xp pro and my tablet with xp tablet pc edition, a
superset of xp pro. I have finally gotten around to setting up network
sharing and have seem to run into a problem: I shared a drive on my
desktop and a drive on my tablet, when I click on "view workgroup
computers" to access my desktop I see the desktop and can access the
share, but when I click on "view workgroup computers" on my desktop
I can see the tablet, but when I click on it I'm told:

"\\dan_tablet 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 network path was not found."

Any ideas why?

Thanks for the help,

Dan

p.s

I'm not using simple sharing on either computer, they both have the
shares set up with everyone given full control, have tc\ip installed
with "NetBios over Tcp/ip" enabled , have all firewalls turned off,
and I'm using the administrator account of try and access one
another.

Hea,

I did what you said, but once i disabled the browser service on my
desktop it couldn't acess the network at all. Any sugestions? I
downloaded the browstat program and then did "browstat status" and on
both computers (the desktop with the computer browser stoped and
disabled and the tablet with it enabled) that browsing is not acvtie
and the master name can't be determinded from GetAdapterStatus.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dan

Dan,

This sort of problem "...not accessible. You might not have permission..." /
"...browsing is not active on the domain..." is typically caused by any of
several problems:
1) Name resolution.
2) Lack of physical connectivity.
3) Firewalls / lack of logical connectivity.
4) Browser conflicts.

Did you check restrictanonymous on both computers?

Provide ipconfig information for each computer, and let's try diagnosing the
problem.
Start - Run - "cmd". Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
window - Open c:\ipconfig.txt in Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is
NOT checked!, copy and paste entire contents into your next post. Identify
operating system (by name, version, and SP level) with each ipconfig listing.

Cheers,
Chuck

p.s

I noticed that with the browser service off on my desktop computer it
can't even see the network, but with it on it can see the tablet, but
not accesses it ( get an error when try to click on it). With my tablet
with no mater if the browser service is on or off I cant see the whole
network, but if I type //dan_basement it will still access my desktop.


Thanks again,

Dan


p.p.s

I know that the two computers are "physically" connected because i can
run RealVnc between them, no problem

Continually posting "Any suggestions?" is counter-productive. This isn't
paid tech support. Chuck, and everyone else trying to help you, is a
volunteer with a life outside of newsgroups. I'm sure he'll be back
when he can.

In the meantime, here is an excellent network troubleshooter by MVP
Hans-Georg Michna. Take the time to go through it carefully and it will
pinpoint the issues. Then post the results of the troubleshooting for
more help.

wondering if maybe i posted at a bad time of night and my post wound up
falling to the back of the list

Dan,

Can you actually map a share as \\dan_basement\nameofshare, and access files
that way? An error 5 is access denied.

If you disabled Simple File Sharing, check the Local Security Policies (Control
Panel - Administrative Tools). Under Local Policies - Security Options, look at
"Network access: Sharing and security model", and ensure it's set to "Classic -
local users authenticate as themselves".

If you truly are using an administrative account that is defined on both
computers with identical non-blank password, check your Local Security Policy
(Control Panel - Administrative Tools) - User Rights Assignment, on the XP Pro
computer, and look at "Deny access to this computer from the network". Make
sure your admin account is not in the list. Look at "Access this computer from
the network", and make sure that Everyone is in this list.

Thanx for the suggestion, i looked and saw that although the
administrator account was not on the list of computers denied access
from the network the guest account was, i took it off. Nonetheless
there still seems to be something wrong on a different level: Neither
the tablet nor the desktop acknowledge that the tablet exists on the
network, the tablet can see and access the desktop, but when i view the
whole network it doesn't see itself.

thanks a million,

Dan

p.s.

I tried mapping a network drive and accessing a file on my desktop from
my tablet and both of those things worked/.

Dan,

If you're using XP Pro with Advanced File Sharing, and Classic Network Access,
the status of Guest should make absolutely no difference. Did you do the
network drive map / file access tests before or after you tweaked the Guest
account in the deny list?

Rerun browstats and post as updated, let's see if any change.

Here is the browstat for my tablet:

Status for domain status on transport
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{4D2C6DD7-2CAE-4269-81F5-EFFF394E240C}
Browsing is NOT active on domain.
Master name cannot be determined from GetAdapterStatus.

And for the heck of it here is the one on my desk:

Status for domain IRWIN on transport
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{BF1CE17D-469D-4161-9B59-38E9D6DA856E}
Browsing is active on domain.
Master browser name is: DAN_BASEMENT
Master browser is running build 2600
1 backup servers retrieved from master DAN_BASEMENT
\\DAN_BASEMENT
There are 2 servers in domain IRWIN on transport
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{BF1CE17D-469D-4161-9B59-38E9D6DA856E}
There are 2 domains in domain IRWIN on transport
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{BF1CE17D-469D-4161-9B59-38E9D6DA856E}


I don't remember if the mapping of the drive before was before or
after changing the permissions, but it still works now that they have
been changed. How would this matter though? I believe i changed the
permission on the tablet, and the tablet is mapping the drive on
desktop not itself on itself (which it can't do even if I wanted to).
The desktop can't access the tablet now and couldn't before i changed
it either

thanks again,

Dan

Dan,

With Windows XP Pro, your server (computer sharing itself) provides network
access based upon the Guest account, or upon a common non-Guest account. If the
computer is running Simple File Sharing, or if it's running Advanced File
Sharing with "Guest only" Network access Local Security Policy, it will always
use Guest authentication.

If your computer is running Advanced File Sharing with "Classic" Network access
Local Security Policy, and if you have a common non-Guest account with identical
non-blank password, your computer will use non-Guest authentication.

If you're using a non-Guest account, that has administrative privilege on the
server, you'll be able to get complete browstat results from any computer that
regards the server as its master browser. If you're using a non-Guest account
without administrative privilege, or if your're using the Guest account, you
won't - you'll see "Could not open key in registry, error = 5".

On 2/15, you posted a pair of browstat logs, one for dan_basement, the other for
dan_tablet. The browstat for dan_basement was predictably complete, and showed
dan_basement to be the master browser. The browstat for dan_tablet showed
dan_basement to be the master browser, but showed the above mentioned error.

I asked you if you had done the network drive map / file access tests before or
after you tweaked the Guest account in the deny list, in an effort to figure out
what has not been done yet. Based upon the browstat logs from 2/15, I am
suspecting that you have not yet established administrative access from
dan_tablet to dan_basement. The question now is whether that is because you are
still using Guest authentication on dan_basement, or whether the non-Guest
account used does not have administrative privilege.

So that is one question. The second, more obvious, is why browstat from
dan_tablet occasionally (as in 2/18) shows "Browsing is NOT active on domain",
yet at other times (as in 2/15) it recognises dan_basement as the master
browser. And when each of these two symptoms are observed variously, do you
actually have file sharing / connectivity between the two computers?

Let's try and define exactly what your symptoms are.

Take the following code (everything inside the "#####"). Please verify computer
names and ip addresses FIRST against "ipconfig /all" from both computers, and
correct if necessary. If you've rebooted either computer, and it has gotten a
different dynamic ip address, this is essential.

Open Notepad. Ensure that Format - Word Wrap is not checked. Highlight then
Copy the code (Ctrl-C), precisely as it is keyed, and Paste (Ctrl-V) into
Notepad.
Save the Notepad file as "cdiag.cmd", as type "All Files", into the root folder
"C:\".
Run it by Start - Run - "c:\cdiag".
Wait patiently.
When Notepad opens up displaying c:\cdiag.txt, first check Format and ensure
that Word Wrap is NOT checked! Then, copy the entire contents (Ctrl-A Ctrl-C)
and paste (Ctrl-V) into your next post. Correct ip addresses if and only if
necessary.

Do this from both computers, please, with all computers powered up and online.

Do the administrator accounts both have the same login and password?

Hea,

I was able to fix my problem, I decided to compare the security
policies on my desktop to my tablet and make the ones on my tablet= to
my desktop ones, and it did it.

Thanks for all the help with everything,

Dan

p.s

I don't know if this means anything, but prior to changing the
polices on my tablet to be like my desktop there were three on my
desktop which said "not applicable", but on my tablet I could
enable/disable.

P.S.S

It also could have been that I found I had disabled the firewall
service, but after my computers connected I disabled it again and
everything still works.

If you are using a peer-to-peer workgroup, then you need to ensure that each
computer in that workgroup has the exact same user set up, with EXACTLY the
same user name, EXACTLY the same password, and EXACTLY the same access
rights. In addition, you may need to ensure that the XP Home machine has the
guest account enabled.

the home computers don't have the same user name, is there any thing i
can do to connect them without haveing to make new users? If i was to
make hidden users (which can olny acess the computer via the network)
on the pro computers would that work?

Thanks,

Dan

I think it's something to do with the Guest Account in Home edition. I'm
afraid that's all I know - see if the Guest Account on the Home edition
machine is enabled, and try enabling it on the Pro machines.
