Network / Sharing :: Setting Up DLNA Server In Windows 8?

Feb 13, 2013

I am trying to set up for media streaming from my PC to my Sony Blu-Ray player using the DNLA. I have a good network connection and have set up all permissions with Homeshare. I get everything done and when I go into Media Player and click on the Stream tab to turn on media streaming nothing happens. Also on my Blu-Ray player there is a DLNA server tab should show up but it does not.

Network / Sharing :: Internet Options Proxy Server Setting Not Stay Off?

Dec 19, 2013

I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy.

Network / Sharing :: W2K3 Server Can Access Windows 8 Computer Can't See W2K Server

Jan 15, 2013

Why does Windows Networking always seem to hose things up ( Linux works EVERY time)

I have two computers on the SAME test private LAN one Whitehorse (W2003 server) and the other Blackdog (Windows 8 Enterprise) both enabled "Shareable and Visible".

View from W2003 -- can see and access disks C,D, and F on Windows 8 Computer

View from Windows 8 - Networking shows the computer Whitehorse (W2003 server) but can't access any disks etc (or even its printer). PING even fails but Windows 8 obviously knows it's on the Network because its found it. The stupid Windows diagnostics when you click Diagnose doesn't work at all --in fact I've NEVER found the network diagnostic panel of the slightest bit of support ever.

I've switched off firewalls etc while testing so there's no security rubbish to take care of while I'm trying to get this to work. LAN is purely LOCAL -- no computer is on "the other side" of a router.

Both machines can access independently the Internet through a Local router and connections are via LAN cable so nothing should be simpler. !! But can I get this to work !!.

I had a similar problem with W7 but it seemed to "Disappear" without me actually doing anything -- the proverbial "Ghost in the Machine" I expect.

(Windows Networking Grrrhhhhhh! -- I'm not particularly technical with this stuff but any time I've used Networking with Linux it works STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX and there's no problem sharing from or to windows. !!)

Note -- Other W7 / Linux / XP computers connected to this SAME LAN (currently switched off) have NO problem accessing the server -- It's just this Windows 8 Machine (Windows 8 x-64 Enterprise version).

Network / Sharing :: Change Network Setting From Public To Private?

Feb 23, 2014

Since I've got windows 8 nobody was able to connect to me via hamachi, though it works when two others who have windows 8 connect to each other, so i was looking for what was different, and apparently it doesnt let through any data when it's set to "public network".

The problem here is that usually you change it by clicking on the network symbol, right-clicking your network and turn sharing on or off, but hamachi makes up another network which isn't listed in the primary interface. I've tried many things already and I'm kind of looking for a direct cmd-Command which allows me to change it quickly.

So, basically, I try to change a network-setting from public to private without using the "normal way to do it".

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 Client To SMB Server

May 20, 2014

I have a simple samba 2.3.3 file server named server3 with three shares (commons, financial, and software) connected to 5 XP workstations all belonging to the workgroup called LINUX. All of the XP machines have normal access to server3 and shared folders on each other.

We've recently add two Windows 8.1 workstations which could not see anything on the network until I add the LSA dword value for LmCompatibilityLevel. Though I can see the server and map the drives now; I still cannot view the files on any of the server3 shares from either of the 8.1 machines. I can however view shared files on all of the other XP machines from the 8.1's and all of the XPs can see them as well.

I can watch the 8.1 machines log on to the samba server and see that the user is given root privileges so I'm thinking that it is Windows that is keeping the files from being displayed.

Network / Sharing :: Can't Map Network Drives On Server 2003 Machine In Win 8.1

Dec 29, 2013

I'm trying to map a Server 2003 network drive in Windows 8.1

For some reason, in the 'Map Network Drive' window, the server doesn't show under 'Network' when I click the 'browse' button. Additionally the server doesn't show under 'Network' in file manager but I can ping it just fine.

Is there perhaps some kind of incompatibility between Win 8.1 and Server 2003 that could be causing this ...

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 Pro - Can Ping Server - Can't Map Drive

Jun 13, 2014

I can ping our work server (windows 8 server) as well as connect to it using a remote desktop connection, it just won't map as a network drive.

I had this problem a few days ago, so I tried everything I could think of (dns flush, ip config release/renew, restarting, disconnecting from network drive & re-mapping) and nothing would let me back on. I did a system restore to 2 weeks ago and it works again. So of course then windows wants to do its updates, I let the updates happen and the problem returns.

It seems like the windows updates are the root of the problem. For now I'll have to restore to before the updates & turn off the updates.

When I'm booted to Win 7 the TV finds the media server no problem, but in Win 8 on same machine it's Server Not Found. All the connections are Ethernet and the TV shows as connected in the router, so the problem is with Win 8. It's probably irrelevant but I have installed the Win 8 Media Center pack.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 / Microsoft 2003 Server And Folder Redirection

May 2, 2014

Sys: Windows 8.1 Pro clients attached to MS 2003 server domain. (yes I know its best to have a higher win server version with 8.1, but i do not have that currently)

Ok, so the problem is that roaming profiles and folder redirection work but on only SOME of the windows 8.1 clients!!!!

How can these both work fine on only SOME of my essentially identical workstations?

I realize that I need different Profile types for the different OS's. I have applied the V4 registry edit and created a V4 default profile in my sysvol directory on the DC so that the workstations get a proper V4 starting profile.

All PC's are in same OU container.

My GPO's for roaming profiles and folder redirection have not changed from my XP workstations, Windows server 2003 domain controller.

So I create a new user, and log into one of the Windows 8.1 client machines on my local lan. Wow, profile works, V4 created in the profile share, redirection works perfectly. So I log out. I then remote to an identical PC across my wan. Log in as same user and it works fine, get the redirected desktop, and profile. But now the fun begins. I log out to complete the profile "swap" back to the server. I try to log back in and the disaster starts. (Yes, I have triple checked my permissions on all shares etc.)

I get the "DESKTOP cannot be loaded error". Logs show REDIRECTION SUCCESSFUL for my desktop!!! What the?

I have received the "redirection gpo not applied till next login" log, but it is intermittent. Its like the OS does does not know it nose from its butt! How can my desktop be redirected successfully and I get a message that my DESKTOP IS NOT AVAILABLE?

So I go back to my local lan machine and try logging in as this same user, IT WORKS FINE OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

How I can get my roaming profiles and folder redirection to work normally with my Windows 8.1 clients on my MS 2003 domain server?

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 PC As Server / Extremely Slow Transfer To Android

Sep 28, 2013

I have setup a n54l hp micro server with windows 8 as my home server and shared a folder with password protection set to off (needed to enable guest account for this to work btw which seemed strange)

Now file transfer between my windows pcs is fast (30MB/s over wifi) but to my android phone and tablet the speed is horribly slow (30kb/s i.e. 1000x slower)

Before I used a readynas duo as my file server and my transfer speeds with my phone were about 0.5MB/s and on pc about 5/MB/s

I have tried different applications on my phone with no change in speed (currently using es file explorer)

Network / Sharing :: DNS Server Isn't Responding

Jun 2, 2014

Today, my internet connection at home encountered a problem. I can connect to the WiFi but no internet access. Usually there's a yellow exclamation mark, but this one is fine, full signal but no internet access. Same thing goes to my iPod, can connect to the WiFi but no internet access.

To my surprise, all my sister's laptop and her Apple devices also the same thing, can connect but no access. I wonder what could be the problem. I use the troubleshoot on my laptop and it says "The DNS server is not responding" and it states that it can't be fix. I already restart my router but still same thing. Right now I'm using my phone's hotspot to connect to the internet and post this here.

My torrent is still downloading at full speed.

Network / Sharing :: Setting Up Shared Folder For File History

Apr 18, 2013

I need configuring file history. I want to have it store files on a shared folder in a local hard rive but I want that folder to be inaccessible to other computers on my home network.

Now its fairly easy to set up a shared folder on a local drive and store file history there but the problem is that other computers can see all my files. I tweaked the sharing permissions on my folder so I removed the 'Everyone' user and put in my user name (which is an admin) and set the permissions to full control. Despite setting the permissions to only my user account, other computers are still able to open the shared file history folder and view and edit its contents.

I can't disable file sharing all together because then it would defeat the purpose of what I am trying to do and also I have another computer on my network store its files on my computer through file history.

Network / Sharing :: Useless PC As File Server?

May 21, 2013

So I have the piece of crap PC known as the Archos 9. Never use it anymore because I got a real laptop.

I just bought a WD My passport 1tb hard drive. So I want to use it as an external network drive.

I would leave my Archos 9 in a corner somewhere with the HD connected,with file sharing. It is touchscreen and has only a built in mouse. No keyboard.

How would I be able to set it up? It overheat sometimes and lags like hell. Has no Fan which might make it suitable for being in a dark corner

Any OS's that don't strain the system a lot and are not outdated? I heard of some other OS's that do this really well,with not much power usage.

Network / Sharing :: Static IP - DNS Server Not Responding

Apr 16, 2013

I have a Windows 8 x64 rig with a wireless card connecting to Linksys router connected to a cable modem. I also have Hamachi and Teamviewer installed, they add their own setup to the network page, don't know if they are the culprits but with DHCP I have no problem.

Everything works well until I try to set up a static IP on my PC (if I enable DHCP for IPv4 - no prob).

What I did: Set a static IP to avoid conflict with other PCs, subnet mask (auto fills), gateway = my router's IP (, DNS servers = took from my ISP's site (also tried Google public DNS).

What happens: my PC connects to the wifi as I can browse the router's settings page. But any website I try to access leads to a DNS server not responding. As soon as I reset back to obtain IP automatically everything works.

Network / Sharing :: Win 8.1 Pro Will Not Connect To Print Server

Oct 29, 2013

I had a Windows 7 environment and just recently purchased a Windows 8 laptop.. .well win 8.1 Pro to be exact. On all of my windows 7 machines I can ping and get solid response and go to that address in the browser and no issue. On the new Window 8.1 laptop I ping that address and sometimes get 1 timeout with 3 responses... other times it just times out and sometimes I get all 4 replies... The print server has a web interface but I am unable to connect to it at all - is there something I need to set in Win 8?

Network / Sharing :: How To Bring Back Server Share To Win 8 Notebook

Jun 17, 2013

I have a new Windows 8-notebook connected to a workgroup-ethernet-network via router,to which a windows [version unknown]-server is connected and 6 other clients,2 of them macs,4 xp-pcs.

On all machines,3 other machines resp shares are constantly visible in "network places":

1 the server-share
2 a client-1 share (which has no internet access)
3 a client-2-with-internet-access-share

The notebook gets internet via the wall-plugged lan,from a router-plugged DSL-router. All issues mentioned here are not dependent on which lan-wall-socket is used. (there are 3 in each room). There is no wlan-accesspoint.

Issue: The notebook is _not _seeing_ (not in net places,and not forceable) the server-share_, despite the fact,that the share has been used before to install a bigger client-server software,which worked.

First appearance: Some day someone tried to access a lan-wall-plug-connected printer for printing, which at that time could be seen in network places,as then could the server; after which _both_ disappeared.

Unfortunately,above said client-server-sw is not working anymore on the notebook. How can I bring back the server-share to the Windows 8-notebook?

Network / Sharing :: How To Move Files From Desktop (2000 Server) To 8.1 Pro

May 6, 2014

I want to move files from my old Desktop (Windows 2000 Server) to my new Laptop (Windows 8.1 Pro).

I have a Router, an Ethernet Cable and a Crossover Cable.

Note: The Router (older Netgear) always shows up as "Unidentified network". However, I can successfully share the Laptop's Internet Connection to it via the Ethernet port. It is joined to the HomeGroup and is a Private network.

The Router's IP Address is which I can connect to using the Smartphone over Wi-Fi.

IP Config for the Ethernet Adapter is as follows.

Code: Ethernet adapter Ethernet: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : XXXXXXXX DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::9905:4ead:5bc5:1e44%3(Preferred) Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : DHCPv6 IAID . . . . . . . . . . . : 54302478 DHCPv6 Client DUID. . . . . . . . : XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : fec0:0:0:ffff::1%1 fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1 fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1 NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled
