I can see all my workgroup computers but cannot access my laptop from the other two. I get this message: \\laptop\xxxx is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator (me!!) of this server to find out if you have access permissions. not enough server storage is available to process this command. any thoughts on this?? the laptop is running norton firewall and the ips for the other two ARE in the trusted zone. the two trying to access are running norton on one and windows firewall on the other. All file/print sharing in on.

Hello galec and welcome to Geeks to Go,

I need a little additional information to ascertain whether or not I will be able to assist you, in correctly setting up your File Share Home Network.

Please Answer the following questions:

1) What operating System's do you have on all PC's being connected to the File Share network, Please include any Windows Updates or Patches (Example..XP SP1 or 2)?

2) What are the Model and Manufacturer of the Wireless / Wired Adapter's currently Installed on all PC's being Included in this Network?

3) What is the Model and Manufacturer of the Router, Switch, or Hub you are using?

4) What IP Configuration are you using (Example.. DHCP, PPoE / Static, Automatic)

5) What antivirus programs do you have running?

6) What firewalls do you have running?

7) What pop-up blockers, Ad Blockers, and Malware detectors do you have running?

8) Do you have the ability to write to a blank floppy (IE.. a 3 1/2 drive [not a prerequisite just makes the setup a little easier])

9) What steps have you already taken to try and implement the File Share Ability for your network?



PLEASE ANSWER QUESTIONS 1-9 THOROUGHLY, TO HELP ME BETTER PROVIDE
YOU WITH A WALKTHROUGH ON HOW TO SETUP YOUR FILE SHARE NETWORK.

I have had this same problem on my home network. Suffice it to say networks are not perfect, and neither are the components. Sometimes within SECONDS of receiving this message saying the network not available or contact the admin (Me2), the system "magically" came back up. Here is how I fixed it:

I stopped using the "Windows Explorer" to search for ccomputers on my network
I started MAPPING NETWORK DRIVES (Using path to the share) to what I wanted to share

This will only work if you can ping everything in your network and you have file/print sharing enabled and still having problems.

Mapping network drives is the shiite.................... :tazz:

Sorry so long on the reply Galec,

I only post on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Here is the solution to your problem that you are facing with the following error message:

"not enough storage is available to process this command"

Solution: Your network wizard has already been ran correctly, your firewalls and virus scanners are already configured correctly. Your drives are mapped correctly, but you have some incorrect settings in your registry concerning your "Paged Pool Size Parameter". Hers the link to the MS Knowledge base on how to correct this problem:

So what have you done to make it work? Did you change the pagedpoolsize to other values?
