Vista - XP Networking


G

Guest

I have a new computer running Vista Home Premium and an older computer
running XP Home SP2. I am using a linksys wireless router with the XP machine
plugged directly into the router and the Vista machine has a wireless card.
Both can use the internet well, and can see each other on the network. I
downloaded the patch on the XP machine to have the Vista machine view the XP
machine in the network map. I have set the C: drive of the Vista machine to
share on the network and have given permissions to everyone to have full
control and have turned on all of the sharing etc. in the network setting
areas of vista except the password protected sharing. I have enabled sharing
on the XP hard drives but cannot seem to find where I can set specific
permissions. Both are using the name workgroup for their workgroup, have
differnt computer names which I can see on each, and I have the same login
for my profile on each (as suggested in one posting)

The problem - I can see the XP machine on the Vista machine but it will not
open and cannot seem to find it even though it shows up in the map and under
conneted devices. I try to diagnose the problem and it can't figure it out. I
can now open the Vista machine on the XP but it will not let me open the C:
drive, only the public folders.

I did uninstall Mcafee privacy blocker, and spamkiller because I was having
a similar issue with my Slingbox (the Vista computer could see the machine
but could not connect) and it fixed that problem so I thought it may be a
similar issue but it is not.

Can anybody help me?

The Network Map is useful, but it doesn't affect Network Neighborhood (which is
where I presume you're looking). What's the Network Location Type?

We could examine "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all" from each computer, and
diagnose the problem. Read this article, and linked articles, and follow
instructions precisely (download browstat!):

Chuck -

You site is amazingly informative. I think I tried everything but I got lost
in the links a few times so I might have missed a bunch and after 4 days this
is getting incredibly frustrating.

I can now completely access the Vista machine (in the ipconfig and browstat
below it is Office PC) from the XP machine (VIC) and can see the XP machine
in the map and the network devices on the Vista machine but still cannot
connect. I tried the ntrights on the XP Home edition machine just as you
stated in one of your articles but after a "successful" result for the first
2 strings the 3rd and 4th string just listed the possbile commands for
ntrights and did not return a "successful".

So far I have Enabled NetBios over TCP/IP on both machines, synced the Login
and password on each machine (afterwhich, I think, I was able to get into all
of the files on the Vista from the XP), disabled the McAfee firewalls, made
exception for printer and filed sharing on both machines, disabled the IPv6
on Vista and uninstalled it on XP, and a few other things I am sure.

I did run the ipconfig and browstat on both machines, and here ore the
results:

OK, Erik,

Let's start with browstat
Unable to retrieve server list from OFFICE-PC: 1130
This is an old friend, let me introduce you.

The master browser is Office-PC. Start there.

I read the articles and Microsoft information. As you said, the browser was
Office-PC the Vista machine that was able to see the XP machine (VIC) so I
needed to increase the IRPStackSize (I had to add it first as described in
the Microsoft article you referance on your website). I started with 18
because the default is supposed to be 15 and it says add 3 to increase. In
intervals of 3 i began to increase with no help. When I got to 46 I stopped
because, for this reason or another I am not aware of, not all of my startup
programs started in the bottom right corner.

When I try to open the XP machine it gives me an error code: 0x80070035 -
"the network path was not found" I did not include that last time and I am
not sure I even saw it. Clicking on diagnose it says "Cannot communicate with
VIC(192.168.1.102). Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not
recieve a response."

Any other ideas?

Norton seems to have issues with it what about McAfee? Should I uninstall it.
I am a bit cautious when it comes to removing my anti virus software - -

Erik,

An error 53 aka "network path was not found" can have many causes.

http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/06/mysterious-error-53-aka-name-not-found.html

The most commonly seen cause, in these forums, is a personal firewall blocking
SMBs. Ping packets dropped is almost always a personal firewall, or network
corruption, problem.

OK - - apparently I am the village idiot. After reading and re-reading your
suggestions and articles on your website I went back to the McAfee firewall.
It was disabled along with everything relating to it. It was such a bulky
program anyway I was going to get rid of it in favor of NOD32 which I have
heard is pretty lite and works well. Instead of just disabling the firewall I
unistalled it (as you suggest and I may have overlooked) and low and behold i
have access to the XP computer.

I cannot thank you enough for doing what you do on these sites for everybody.

A hopefully brief follow up:

I have done the following in order to fix this problem (eventhough it may
have just been uninstalling the McAfee firewall that needed to be done) so
should I and how would I reverse any of these things, or do I need to?

1. Synced the login and password on each machine (not a big deal if I have
to keep it)
2. ran the ntrights +r SeNetowrkLogonRight etc. (4 line command though only
the top 2 worked) -
3. Added the IRPStackSize reg_dword value to the registry in the correct
spot that was not there before and left it set at 21
4. enabled netbios over tcip on both machines
5. and probably 10 other things I have forgot about.

I am guessing that if I do not see anything wrong right now I should leave
it as-is?

and lastly (hopefully) is there a donation spot on your website I can
contribute to? You rock! - Erik

Another problem, fixed but a follow-up - - again.

After seeing all of my drives I tried to actually work on a file and could
only get 2 subfolders deep and access was denied. Looking it up on your site
I started in safe mode with networking, opened the folders I could see
through Vista and all had Everyone; the subfolders did not. I changed the
permissions on the drive (to match the permission on a drive that I was able
to view everything) allowed the permisions to propagate through he child
folders and all is well.

BUT - - I did notice that before I changed all of the permissions their was
a mysterious entry in the permissions along with the usual Admin, System,
Owner, etc. The name was listed as
S-1-5-21-1893418032-130471249-65447984-1005 and was set as the owner of most
if not all of the subfolders I was previously not allowed to access. Have you
heard of that before, and is it a problem? Left overs from a virus or
something else I should be worried about? The face (on the other is was
either a single head or 2 for groups) had no color and a red questions mark.

Should I be concerned?

Again - - thank you so much for all of your help - - I can go back to work
now! - Erik
