What am I missing here???

Postby Ol Dave » Wed Feb 24, 2010 8:23 pm

I'll start with the set-up first, then the issue.
PC#1 running XP SP3 2gig mem connected to Linksys router
PC#2 running XP SP3 1gig mem connected to same
NAS connected to same router, acessible to both PCs.
Router connects to cable modem, internet.
McAfee on both PC's. PC! set to manage network and PC2 set to full permissions.

Now then, both PC's have shared drives which are mapped to the other PC.

PC1 can access everthing fine. No problems there.
PC2 can access the NAS and Internet, and will display the directory tree of PC1. However, when I try to expand any of the shared folders from PC1, I get this error
"\\ect... is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this resource. Contact the admin etc."

AND on the another line below is:

"Not enough server storage is available to process this command."

Also, Windows explorer becomes "not responding" and I have to close it in task manager.

What the heck I have done?? How can get PC2 to access PC1 and why is the error referring to a server?? PDT_Armataz_01_02

Thanks much!

Do both PCs have the same username/password combination?

Likely you don't have full sharing on both systems set up. Set "full" access rights for all folders/files. If using the default value for the shares, you may want to change from "C$" to just "C" and so on. Less restrictions.

Hi Karl,

I set sharing on PC1 root drive C but still get the same response from PC2. Does this require a re-boot on PC1 by chance?

I didn't mention this before, but it seems to takean extra long time for PC2 to display the dir tree of PC1 if that means anything.

PC1 looking at PC2 takes a couple of seconds.
PC2 looking at PC1 takes 15-20 maybe.

A cold restart should always be done when changing permissions or access rights. Ensure that TCP/IP and NETbeui are enabled if you want to share/access local files.
Possibly your anti-virus and Firewall program does not fully trust your Intranet connections. You can set them as "fully trusted" from the program's tool panel. Ensure all computers are in the same Work Group, with the same group name. It is permissible to have different IP addresses in the first three groups, but better to have the first three groups of the IP address identical.. the last group being different, the ID of the specific unit.
Definition of 'groups' for IP address: There are up to 12 numeric characters in standard IP addresses.. with groups of three, separated by a period. An example would be 123.456.789.012. The last 'group' can be one, two or three numeric characters. In assigning an IP address, that is up to the OS, unless you want a specific set.
This WIKI link should help explain easily the reason for IP address structure.
