Internet But No File Sharing On Lan

Recommended Posts

I have a small network with one computer permanently on the internet connected to a hub and providing internet to 3 computers connected to it using Internet connection sharing. The internet works fine but when I try file sharing I can't read files off the comp with inter it says "not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Access Denied." I have checked that file sharing is on a that its not blocked by any firewalls but still not working. All comps using Win XP pro.

 

Any idea where I should be looking?

sounds like closed ports. do you use a router or ICS?

 

 

if it's the router - access the controls, and route the ports for whatever file sharing ap, to whatever IP is running that program, and yes you can change what ports software uses for P2P, torrent, w/e.

 

If it's ICS, same thing, just bind a port for an ap to the IP it needs to go to.

run network setup wizard on all computers, make sure they use the same workgroup, and reboot all machines...

I have tried what you suggested no go :(

 

If I go to run and type //comp-name/shareDir the share dir appears and all subfolder etc work

 

I have check the local polices all seem fine

 

If I go network places > M$ windows networks > MSHome

It says "Access denied" might not have permission

 

Any suggestions?
