Dear all,
I want to log to the Sharing printer from this ip 192.168.100.29 but when i type like this, \\192.168.100.29 it show me the message
( The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see window help )

But other Computer can log to this IP my type the same ask i do: \\192.168.100.29 and it work well. and they can use this sharing printer.
My friend told me that maybe my computer have virus and it block the network...

So what is the problem about this?

I'm not able to fully understand what you did or mean?

Some questions :

Where did you enter \\192.168.100.29? I mean what app, browser, printer set-up, where?

Can you define your network with IP Addresses, computers, router, printers?

Open a COMMAND PROMPT (RUN->CMD.EXE) and enter IPCONFIG /ALL and post results please?

At the COMMAND PROMPT enter PING 192.168.100.29 and post results please?

At the COMMAND PROMPT enter NET VIEW and post results please?

I suspect your problem could be FIREWALL related? I assume the printer is attached to another computer and that computer many not be allowing you to access the shared printer.

Ok, I have 2 PC, One I call it PC A, and PC B

My printer in PC A, and I share the printer from PC A already. Then I use PC B to enter the PC A for sharing by go to start => Run => \\192.168.100.29 (IP of PC A) but the message show ( The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see window help )
But other PC i call it PC C, when i go to start => Run => \\192.168.100.29 and I can log to the PC A and use the sharing printer.

The question is Why my PC B can't get to the PCA, and why PC C can get to the PC A and can use the printer.

TYPE NET VIEW => Result is below.
There are no entries in the list.

The RUN command opens up Explorer for both machines.

"The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see window help", this is a CLUE...

First, are ALL PC's the same OS? If PC A is Vista and PC B is XP, you'll need another file loaded, the LLD (I think that is the name, I forgot but if you need it, respond back and I'll find it). If it is running Win2000,
CHECK HERE
.

Next, ALL machines should be on the SAME network name. For Vista, the default name has been changed, so check that.

Another possibility is a FIREWALL issue. Either machine could be blocking it. Disable FW's on both machines temporarily and see what happens? Get the same error?

Lastly, it could be a permissions issue, either in the firewall on PC A or the USERS allowed.

Let me know what happens when you try the above.

Yes PC A and PC B is the same OS (XP), and you said (SAME network name) How can I know the network name? I use two antivirus Avira and Bitdefender and i Disable Firewall already but without restart PC, and it still show the message the same.

Lastly, it could be a permissions issue, either in the firewall on PC A or the USERS allowed. <<<=== I don't know how to do?

==========
One more...Before this maybe 5days, My PC can go to \\192.168.100.29 and use the sharing printer is very well, but now why my PC can't go to PC A again? Virus?

Well, the 1231 error generally is an ACCESS issue. Not sure what happened as you say it was working before? That sort of points to a program/OS update changing something that is blocking you.

General things to do,

1) make sure Client for MS Networks is enabled, this would be under NETWORK PROPERTIES.
2) make sure you have permission to access it. Guest account generally. Check USERS or the Firewalls, looking for either excluded IP addresses or if it is in the list of TRUSTED IP Addresses.

PC B fails, but can you see PC B from PC A?

Network name is found on the MY COMPUTER PROPERTIES, check both machines, but I suspect they are the same. Otherwise it wouldn't have worked before.

I'm still unsure of your network setup? I don't think you are using a router? The Gateway computer and the one you are trying to share the printer on are close in number but not the usual Router address? Using Internet Connection Sharing possibly? Does the Internet connection work on all machines?

Net Bios in the Network Advanced properties might need be enabled as well.

Permissions I was thinking of the firewall net setting the IP Address of a machine trying to access it as trusted. Also possibly the target computer not allowing the computer name of the one trying to use the share access. If GUEST is enabled, then that wouldn't be it.

Might want to LOOK AT THIS, a similar problem fixed after Winsock corruption fix?

I've suggested about all I can, but post back if you check/try the stuff above and still have problems. The last thing I'd suggest it to delete and re-install the printer and its share I guess?

Oh! today I have ping from PC A to my PC B,
Request time out.

but when i ping from PC B to PC A it can ping...

and i will follow ur answer step by step cos i not clearly about network.

The problem is on PC B, it isn't letting PC A 'in', and that usually would be a firewall permissions or user ID not allowed, especially if the UID is password protected.

Test this out.
1 Disable the firewall and test. If successful, then you have to put the network in your trusted IP range in the firewall or open up the ports that the Printer use, in your firewall.
2-Change your IP address to \\192.168.100.121 or better yet, on the PC that can access the Printer, run ipconfig/all and set the same configuration on the PC that cannot connect to the Printer except but with a unique IP address such as shown above. Make sure the subnet mask match that of the PC that can connect and you are on the same network.
The PC and the printer are on a 192.168.100.x network while you are on 192.168.1.x. It can work if the subnet mask on all are 255.255.0.0.

You might have mixed up my posts and his. My network is 192.168.1.xxx and his appears to be a shared ICS at 192.160.100.xxx.

Can you post the following COMMAND.COM commands results on each computer please,

NET SHARE
NET USE

Also, is NETBIOS over TCP/IP enabled on each computer (in advanced properties on the WINS tab). Put the subnets back to 255.255.255.0 please as well before running the above commands.

I'm getting confused here... I see too many IP addresses.

Are you using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) to share the network, that is on computer is connected to the Internet and the other 2 are connected to that machine?

One is at 192.168.100.99, another at 192.168.100.8, and yet is seems another at 192.168.100.25? You also are trying to connect to 192.168.100.29?

One it seems had been at 192.168.100.2 as well?

Can you detail the topology of your net? Are you using a ROUTER or ICS to share the network? What IP address is each machine at? Do an IPCONFIG /ALL on each one and post it please.

Yes we are using the Internet to share the Network. (192.168.100.2) is the Server machine that We use room master program.
- And 192.168.100.29 is the PC that Have Printer for share...and 192.168.100.99 is my PC that Need to use the sharing printer but it can't log to.
- And 192.168.100.8 is the PC that Can use the Sharing printer from PC (192.168.100.29)

And now what i want is: I want 192.168.100.99 to connect to the 192.168.100.29 and use the sharing printer too.
Our network using Router...

OK, you want 192.168.100.99 to connect up with 192.168.100.29 and it can not, correct? The 'server' machine is 192.168.100.2, correct? 192.168.100.8 has no problem doing this, correct? Just want to make sure I understand it all.

So my question now is who is 192.168.100.25? It is listed as the GATEWAY?

192.168.100.99 appears to have TWO network cards as well, are you wired into the correct connector? Only the 3COM which is probably on the motherboard is active.

I still do not understand the topology of your network? Are you using a ROUTER or ICS built into Windows?

Yes all ur question is correct :D!

192.168.100.25 is our Internet Gateway if we no this IP 192.168.100.25 we can't use the internet.
Yes IP 99 have to network card...

I still do not understand the topology of your network? Are you using a ROUTER or ICS built into Windows?
( I still not understand about this too becoz i don't no much about Network )

But i know we have Router and all the PC above use the Line from Router.

OK, from your answers the Router is at 192.168.100.25 then.

ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) is MS's answer for sharing resources without a router, see HERE if you wish to know more.

With a router, the Internet and all machines are connected to it. All traffic goes through that device. It is your 'GATEWAY' and has to be set as that on all machines.

There is a network tutorial on THIS PAGE. and from your description, you are set up like the drawing on the left with more than 2 computers. The one on the right is ICS and how it is setup (all this is called the topology, description of the machines and how connected).

Back to your problem then. First thing you need do is CONFIRM that the machine that can NOT get to the printer has the network cable attached to the ACTIVE network card. Then I'll need more data from the machine WITH the printer and only the one that can't get to it, and the one that can, clearly labeled by PC letter (A, B, C, etc.) and the IP address assigned to it.

Do all these from a COMMAND PROMPT for the 3 machines (commands should be entered as shown, the case for the parameters must be lower case).

- NBTSTAT -n
- IPCONFIG /ALL
- PING 192.168.100.99
- PING 192.168.100.29
- PING 192.168.100.8
- ROUTE PRINT
- ARP -a -v

Lastly, does the problem machine get to the internet? If not, you could have a bad cable if it is connected to the proper CAT5 connector.

-N if_addr Displays the ARP entries for the network interface specified
by if_addr.
-d Deletes the host specified by inet_addr. inet_addr may be
wildcarded with * to delete all hosts.
-s Adds the host and associates the Internet address inet_addr
with the Physical address eth_addr. The Physical address is
given as 6 hexadecimal bytes separated by hyphens. The entry
is permanent.
eth_addr Specifies a physical address.
if_addr If present, this specifies the Internet address of the
interface whose address translation table should be modified.
If not present, the first applicable interface will be used.

OK, I see one clear problem, but not if you are on Vista on ALL computers.

Look at this from your reports :

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
PC (A) is the PC that Have Printer for Sharing
==================
C:\>NBTSTAT -n

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.100.29] Scope Id: []

NetBIOS Local Name Table

Name Type Status
---------------------------------------------
JH-FRONT-OFFICE<00> UNIQUE Registered
WORKGROUP <00> GROUP Registered
JH-FRONT-OFFICE<20> UNIQUE Registered
WORKGROUP <1E> GROUP Registered

+++++++++++++++++++++++

PC (C) Is the PC that can use the Sharing printer from PC A.
========================
C:\>NBTSTAT -n

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.100.8] Scope Id: []

NetBIOS Local Name Table

Name Type Status
---------------------------------------------
HOTEL-4F6407D7A<00> UNIQUE Registered
MSHOME <00> GROUP Registered
HOTEL-4F6407D7A<20> UNIQUE Registered
MSHOME <1E> GROUP Registered
MSHOME <1D> UNIQUE Registered
..__MSBROWSE__.<01> GROUP Registered

++++++++++++++++++++

Two different GROUP names, the workgroup name that appears on the GENERAL tab of COMPUTER properties. MSHOME was the default for XP and WORKGROUP for Vista. Ideally all computers should be on the SAME workgroup, but Vista can handle different ones, XP can not easily. In XP you have to do a NET USE with the domain name before a shared resource can be used.

On Vista, my ARP is different from yours? See my 'help' as I have the -v parameter for Verbose:

======================
C:\Users\Irv>arp

Displays and modifies the IP-to-Physical address translation tables used by
address resolution protocol (ARP).

ARP -s inet_addr eth_addr [if_addr]
ARP -d inet_addr [if_addr]
ARP -a [inet_addr] [-N if_addr] [-v]

-a Displays current ARP entries by interrogating the current
protocol data. If inet_addr is specified, the IP and Physical
addresses for only the specified computer are displayed. If
more than one network interface uses ARP, entries for each ARP
table are displayed.
-g Same as -a.
-v Displays current ARP entries in verbose mode. All invalid
entries and entries on the loop-back interface will be shown.
inet_addr Specifies an internet address.
-N if_addr Displays the ARP entries for the network interface specified
by if_addr.
-d Deletes the host specified by inet_addr. inet_addr may be
wildcarded with * to delete all hosts.
-s Adds the host and associates the Internet address inet_addr
with the Physical address eth_addr. The Physical address is
given as 6 hexadecimal bytes separated by hyphens. The entry
is permanent.
eth_addr Specifies a physical address.
if_addr If present, this specifies the Internet address of the
interface whose address translation table should be modified.
If not present, the first applicable interface will be used.
Example:
> arp -s 157.55.85.212 00-aa-00-62-c6-09 .... Adds a static entry.
> arp -a .... Displays the arp table.
=========================

Please run ARP -a on each computer and post results.

One big problem appears to be NetBios not being enabled on PC B? The status of TCP/IP isn't shown on PC A or C either? When I run on Vista IPCONFIG /ALL I see the status :

_________________________________

What OS's are run on each machine including the Service Pack level?

Just to make sure,
Here is HOW to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP in Vista.
I suspect you already have tried this though? I also assume all computers have File and Printer Sharing enabled as well.

I've searched the web and FOUND THIS, and as it states,

"TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
Default Description:

Provides support for the NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) service and NetBIOS name resolution for clients on the network, therefore enabling users to share files, print, and log on to the network. If this service is stopped, these functions might be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start."

Looks like on PC B some services are NOT running, either disabled or you have problems stopping it from running. This service is TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper. Open up SERVICES (Windows Start Orb and type in SERVICES in the search bar) and make sure the service is set to AUTOMATIC and is running. This should fix that.
