Would you please give me some help?
I have a home network problem. The network is made by 2 computers Pentium 4 Windows XP, one laptop and the other desktop, connected with a D-Link DI-604 router. From the desktop I can see the shared partitions C, D and CD/DVD on the laptop. However, from the laptop I can see the desktop’s root, but I can access only one hard disk, G, which is alone on a RAID controller. I cannot access the partitions C and D on the normal IDE, CD/DVD and even the USB printer attached to the desktop. When I tried to open them I get:
“ \\Principal\C is not accessible. You might not have permission this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.
Not enough server storage is available to process this command.”
It’s not a sharing/security problem because I verified and all the disks on the desktop have the same sharing/security configuration (allowing nearly everything), so the same on G as on the C and D. Actually, some weeks ago, from the laptop I was able to access all the disks and the printer on the desktop. This network problem happened after doing some maintenance on the desktop: cloning my old hard disk containing the C and D partitions, to a bigger one; change XP from SP1 to SP2; some other Registry changes made with PConPoint; new antivirus; new anti-spy.
To solve this network issue I removed the fire wall on both computers (nothing changes), I increased IRPStackSize on the laptop from 11 to 14, created IRPStackSize (value 15) on the desktop (this just made my desktop much slower; tried to improve it with PConPoint without success), run WinsockXPFix.exe on both computers (nothing improved). BTW, in the Registry, in the location of the IRPStackSize, on the laptop I have as well a CachedOpenLimit which is not on the desktop. Should I create it?
This kind of basic network should be easy to make and solve any issue. I don’t understand what happened. So please, do you have any other ideas how to solve this issue?
