Network / Sharing :: Scanned Documents Not Showing Up On Workstations
Jul 25, 2014
I use windows 8.1 on a desktop for a server in our small office. Server + 5 workstations. I was using an old XP machine to scan documents in. I moved the scanner to the Windows 8.1 server. The XP machine scanned them and sent them to a location on the server and from there anyone could get to the document.
Now, if I scan from the server to the same location it will not show on the workstations in Windows Explorer (or Thunderbird if emailing). It's there and all the workstations have permission to access the folder.
If I am on the Win 8 machine and copy the file to another location and then back to the scan docs location, no problem it shows. If I copy a doc from a workstation to the Server. No problem it shows.
I suspect some type of permissions issue but am unable to figure out how to resolve it.
I would prefer that certain files (like Tax and financial documents ) be stored locally. Can this be accomplished if I save the documents within the program I am using with "save as" then specify a location other than the C drive where the OS is located?
I bought a new PC with Windows 8.1 and I probably set up stuff wrong at the start.
I set up my wife and 2 daughters as Administrators like me but I thought that they would not be able to see my Documents or Pictures or Music as my Profile has a password. But they were able to see all my Music, Documents and Pictures.
Previously in Windows XP, all our stuff was separate and they didn't see any of my files.
Thinking all I had to do was make them Standard Users and this would rectify the issue but obviously it didn't. I have left them at Standard Users hoping for a solution from you people here on this Forum.
So I am asking is there a way on Windows 8.1 to have my stuff Private for me and for no one to see it?
My 8.1 laptop shows multiple network connections to my Samsung Smart TV --- One as "media connections" and 3 as "other connections". Both devices are on a simple wireless network using Linksys WRT54GS.
Under the "Network" page, most of the "Properties" of the TV connections are the same except for "Serial Number" and "Unique Identifier". Did I do something wrong when setting things up? Are these extra connections harmful? Should I delete some? How?
When I click network while i am in windows explorer, the network infrastructure is not there, only the Computer is visible there and i want to fix something by changing the properties of my modem/router on the network infrastructure.
When I refresh networks, I see all the networks I should (we have an extender, so there are two regions on our house) -- but I also see one called Hidden Network. How do I find out what that is? There are no nearby houses. This has to be emanating from my house.
I have a windows 8 64 bit system. There is a laptop with windows 7. I have my canon mp470 printer plugged into the windows 8 system via usb. Up until a few days ago we could printer from the windows 7 laptop through the network. I have done 2 things since then. 1.) I uninstalled mcaffee internet security and installed nortons internet security and 2.) I tried to update to windows 8.1 which failed part way through the update then it said the system was reverting back to windows 8.0
Now I can't print from the laptop. (nothing changed on the laptop only on the windows 8 system).
I just got a network usb adapter for my new Windows 8 built PC. In the devices area of the control panel it shows the network adapter as installed, and working. However, when I got to PC Settings there are no wireless settings shown, and unlike my other computers around the house I can't find my network or any other networks which is very stranger since I live in an apartment and I'm surrounded by like 20 different networks.
I have run into some networking problems and I think I have narrowed it down to the homegroup provider.
I have 4 windows 8 pro x64 computers connected to a router. Up until now, I have been able to disable the homegroup provider service because I don't want to use the homegroup and don't want to see it in my file explorer. I have been able to connect to all the shared computer drives up until I tried to disable the homegroup provider on my netbook. When I did this I lost the ability to connect to other shared computers. I re-enabled the provider, however I still cannot see drives on other computers. I can now see my netbook on the other shared computers.
I have a Synology NAS, Mapped as P: on my computer.
I can see the P: in Windows Explorer. However, in several applications. Most notably Photoshop CC, After Effects CC and 3ds Max 2013. The P: is not accessible from the open dialogue box. Nor can i enter the path manually.
I am using internet via usb modem. Its working fine, but when i open Settings>>Change PC Settings>>Networks I can see WiFi, Ethernet & VPN but not my internet connection. I have attached a screenshot, and my internet is connected when i am taking the screenshot.
I got a broadband connection few days before and whenever I use that connection to access internet, Chrome alone works. Firefox, IE, Torrent application and all the Windows 8 apps are showing "unable to connect to internet".
I tried a lot of cmds like" dns flush, resetting connection etc" but nothing worked.
I even refreshed the whole OS, but the issue persists.
I have several computers on my Wireless/Wired Network. Wireless is dual band and Secured with WP2 Password. Basically on several of my PCs I can see connections to my neighbours computers showing as Windows Media Player Icons. When I first noticed this I fully restored my router (Western Digital) creating new SSIDs and Passwords, however I can still see these computers.
I'm not personally bothered that I can see them as I can always click remove device, I'm more interested WHY I can see them and Can they see my computers as I do have some without Password Protected sharing as I assumed only devices on my network could access these.
My PCs are Running a Mix of Windows 8.1 and 7 and both can see the 2 neighbour computers. I have homegroup set up with a secured password too.
My Brand new Laptop: Lenovo g505 after upgrading it to windows 8.1 from MS Apps store now i am not able to connect to internet i get "limited" or "No Internet Access". i have tried to re install the driver no luck
Lenovo support suggests to do factory rest but i dont want to go back to windows 8 ...
After the new windows 8.1 update (which inclided the home screen power off button) a net problem came out. In my wifi indication, it sais "limited", but when i enter the web, i can search in the internet without probs. When i go to net. and sharing center, i cant see any network. On my other laptop (win7) it shows the connection normally.
I've been having a network problem since Refreshing Windows 8.1 Pro Update 64 bit on one of my PC's. I've been able to see other PC's OK but unable to see some devices (eg Diskstation NAS etc) on my network (all connected using Ethernet cables).
I've tried all sorts of things to cure the problem and all to no avail.
I just noticed that in Services there was no Computer Browser so I guess this is my problem. I copied over the browser.dll file from another PC (using the same operating system) to the Windows/System32 folder but after a reboot there was still no Computer Browser in Services. I ran a couple of scripts I found, a registry hack and something else to restore the Computer Browser then I uninstalled the Client for Microsoft Networks, rebooted and re-installed the client.
Now when I look in Services it's listed as Browser instead of Computer Browser and in the Description column it says "Failed to read description. Error Code: 15100. The error code has now changed to error code 2.
What I can try next other than a clean re-install?
just formatted to install windows 8 and then install the Belkin wireless software for the dongle after that was complete restarted and the dongle wasn't showing any available connections Got the software from Belkin
I began an installation this morning after paying FIRST the Windows 8 upgrade fee for the install.
The preinstaller said my machine might not be compatible because it appears that my processor would not support NX, but it would try to turn it on when installing.
Well.....after nearly an hour of installing at the very end it says... there was an error and your system cannot be installed and we are returning you to your original state.
I am STUNNED that Win 8 will not run on something as recent or advanced as an HP XW6200 workstation. What the heck is Microsoft thinking to design an OS that will leave out such recent and advanced equipment.
I've looked all over HP, MS, and the net to see if there is anything about these workstations and NX, but I cant find any info.
On HP website they simply say there is no information on whether or not the xw6200 is compatible.
I cant find anything in the BIOS to turn on NX.
I have several of the xw6200 and many more xw6400s which I am sure will be the same issue.
I perchased a Nokia Lumia 1320 a week before.In my country internet via sim card is expensive..that's why I decided to upgrade my phone by wifi. I downloaded a softwere (connectify) to built a wifi network with my laptop and it working fine for my other Nokia phones (5800 and C5-03).But my Lumia did not find any wifi.I tryed to change some settings in wifi properties but it didn't work for me.In my works place there is a wifi network visible to all persons.But there also Lumia does not showing any network
I am trying to share a specific folder on my Windows 8 computer with my Windows 7 computer. They are both on the same network connected to the same router. The Windows 8 computer is connected through ethernet, while the Windows 7 computer is connected wirelessly.
Here are my settings on my Windows 8 Computer:
This is the error I get on my Windows 7 computer:
What's up with this? On a related note, is it possible to share this folder with a specific PC, rather than "Everyone" on the network?
I am having trouble with ICS on win 8. On my old laptop (win xp) I used to be able to share my 3Connect dongle internet to connect to Xbox live. I recently got a new laptop with win 8 and whenever I share this internet connection I can never connect on my Xbox (the network to internet part fails). When everything is connected up and shared the Ethernet says 'Unidentified Network' which i believe is the cause of the problem. I've read i may require a driver update but i cannot seem to find one.
My Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C855-29N
what to do, maybe i am not setting up the connection sharing properly?
I've been trying to set up an old Savin 9033 printer through the company's router, but I couldn't find the network it's set up on from any other computer.
So I pull up Network & Sharing, see that Network Discovery is turned off.
I check it, go to click on "Save Changes" and nothing happens. I click it a few times and it kicks me back to the previous page, nothing saved. No password prompt or anything.
I double checked that all the appropriate services are running (DNS Client, SSDP Discovery, UPnP Device Host, Function Discoveryr Resource Publication, etc.) and made sure Network Discovery was allowed through Windows Firewall.
Is there a way to setup network profiles or something so that when I bring my Surface Pro to work and connect to the wireless network there it will use the static ip address I have but when I disconnect and then connect to my home wifi it will go back to DHCP? On my MacBook Pro I can go into the network settings and change the location profile I have setup for networks but I don't see anything like this for Windows 8.
This morning I installed an optional update from Windows Update. It was Ralink Technology WLAN 802.11 wireless LAN card.
Since then, when I try to print to my wireless network printer, the network would disconnect then come back on after a while. The update shows up in Update History as successfully installed but not in the installed updates. System restore is of no support here. The network configuration page shows normal. The web does not appear to be affected. I made a new network connection for the printer but it did not work.
Is there a way to reverse this update or should I uninstall the 802.11 LAN card and let windows re-install anew.
I am trying to get file sharing to work with my win 8 machine and my OS X Server. The computers are on the same network with the same workgroup but I can't seem to connect. I was able to connect with the wife's win 7 home machine until I upgraded it to win 7 Ultimate now it wont connect either.
I am in the midst of the final steps in setting my my new Win 8 system.
I have a Win XP and Win 8 computer on my home network. I believe that I have set up file and printer sharing correctly. I can access the files and printer on the XP system from the Win 8 system. However, when I attempt to access the Win 8 files from the Win XP system, I get a long delay (about a minute or two) and then it asks me for the User Name & Password. I enter them and then and it works fine.
If I try to print on the printer attached to the Win 8 system from the XP system, I get a printer error unless I have already signed in with the ID & PW when accessing files. It never asks me for an ID & PW before attempting to print.
On the Win 8 system, I have selected "Turn off password protected sharing" in the "Network and Sharing Center/Advanced Sharing Settings".
The Win XP system has previously been correctly sharing files and printers with another XP system for some time and I haven't changed any settings on the XP computer.
Both the XP and Win 8 systems are assigned the same Workgroup name.
