Server-client file sharing software/program

Q: Server-client file sharing software/program

Hi guys!

Do you know of any server-client type of program/software (shareware/licensed) that allows users (intranet/internet) to view add, edit, delete files/folders? The server application must also accommodate dynamic IP while the client side must involve minimum configurations.

It would also be great if it includes a discussion interface - chat, boards, etc.

Thank you very much!

Preferred Solution: Server-client file sharing software/program

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was tasked to create an answer file for an unattended install using SIM. In a virtual lab, i had the install.wim file on a server and put it on a share to push it through to the client machine. Just for the purpose of making it easy, we could apply full
control permissions in ntfs to the file to everyone and gave read write permissions to everyone in the share. By giving the path in SIM i could pull the file from the client station, but then was asked for credentials. Any idea why it is asking for credentials?
I thought that i made it available to everyone. I even made a separate folder and copied the file to the folder then changed the permissions. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I read in a book the article below.

A managemnet station, called manager, is a host that runs the SNMP cleint program.

A managened station, called an agent, is a router (or a host) that runs the SNMP server program.
What does the bolded phrase mean ?

Hi there to any of you network Gurus -- I'm testing a Virtual version of Windows Server What I'd like to do is to set up a VPN so I can access it from another computer Windows in the LAN while testing but using a VPN rather than RDP A FREE VPN server and client is what I would like at this stage Eventually I would like to login from a mobile phone too - but later The VPN should just present a LOGIN screen to the user and then show a basic desktop with just say Office and IE installed on it I'm totally VPN and VPN AND Create (Server client) Free software good new to this sort of stuff - so SIMPLE to start with - I don't want to get into quot Remote Roaming quot Domains or any other quot Geeky stuff quot at this stage -- just the simple basics - LOGON etc Any links greatfully appreciated -- there's so many to choose from so I don't know where to start The network connectivity to the server works fine --at least with RDP so I don't have to worry at least about that bit of the system Cheers jimbo

A:Create VPN and good Free VPN software (Server AND client)

First off, a vpn in just a virtual network connection, so it won't natively present you with a desktop or applications. It will get you remotely connected to the network, from there you will launch something else to connect to a desktop, either rdp, terminal services, etc.

Doing a VPN is natively built into sever 2012, so you won't need any software, free or otherwise to setup a.basic VPN.

I have been given a PC with Windows Home of 2011 client software Removal Windows Server Home Premium bit This was a client PC from a small old Windows Home Server system which has now been dismantled as the server PC failed My unit works fine but I cannot remove the irritating Server client items from it - Launchpad and Alert Services etc etc Have looked everywhere on the disk but cannot find any uninstall file anywhere All the relevant files seem to be in the Program Files Windows Server Bin folder but nothing found there No separate uninstalling prog will work either Have considered starting up the PC in Safe Mode physically removing the Windows Server folder and contents then running a registry cleaner to tidy up the loose ends Am concerned that this might make the PC unstable so ask if anyone has any useful suggestions For now I have worked through the Start Up process and inhibited the ones considered relevant Also CCleaner has stopped the Launchpad This has worked but would like to permanently remove Removal of Windows Home Server 2011 client software the unwanted items Ted

A:Removal of Windows Home Server 2011 client software

No one has supplied any suggestions as to my programme removal so decided to risk it and do it myself as described.
Backed up whole HD plus registry, restarted in basic Safe Mode then physically removed all traces of WHS 2011 in file system.
Emptied Recycle Bin then restarted as normal.
No disasters occurred so used CCleaner and Advanced Uninstaller PRO. They mopped up the loose ends and everything seems to be fine now. Job done!
I suppose the same process could be used for most difficult to remove items.

I am running a weather program (AS2012) on a client for Flight Simulator X (FSX) on the server. The client connects to the server by Simconnect.
Both machines run W7 Home Premium x64 and I run them with full Administrator permissions.
The SimConnect.ini file is located in a folder on the server:  C:\Users\FSX_XPlane\My Documents\Flight Simulator X\
This is shared across the network with Full Control for Everyone. The owner is FSX_XPlane.
I can access and open the simconnect.ini file from the client. 
When I run the weather program on the client it does not connect to FSX on the server.  The system log shows that the path to the simconnect.ini file is not set (attached - time 23:06:44:0096).
The other required simconnect file paths are correctly identified. 
If anyone can suggest an explanation for this, and a fix, I'd be grateful.

OK, now that I got our network running correctly (thanx John!!!), I am now ready for the next set:

We would like to set-up a computer on the network that would be for file sharing.

Basically, we want that computers Shared Folder to be accessable to all users on our network (so we can move files in and out of the server).

We would also like it, that from our home computers, we can access the Shared Fold on the File Server and move files in and out of it.

Now the Questions:

1) Where on the network should we plug this system in? Into the main switch, or directly into the router?

2) Is there any special software that I need to do this? Is Windows XP networking enough?

3) How do I make it so that to access the shared folder, you need a user/password?

4) Is what we are planing, secure?

I have 2 computers networked at home. Both 'puters run XP sp2. I want to share files between them. But I can't.

The server service won't start on either. Both say that the server files can't be found. All the dll files are present in system 32 . Start up set to automatic. Executable paths are correct (C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs), Log on as local system account, dependency is ok with computer browser there.
Have done a windows file check and no problems.

These days we use something called User permissions and security settings to establish safe reliable network connections.

You can just right click the folders you want to share and choose the security and permissions settings, they tend to stay put after that. Or you can click on the "share" tabs and go from there. If you are using all Windows 7 machines in this network then setting up a Home group is the way to go.

I need to unlock file sharing between 2 computers on a network to 1 Program File folder. They are both running vista32. I have searched all night with no luck and only hope that someone here has an answer. This is for a flight simulation game that can use another computer to run a few separate programs that add features to the game. People are not reporting problems while using XP. So I know this can be done, the question lies with Vista and is capabilities. I have share my whole C drive then program files then the folder that I need to be able to get into, but when I try to access the folder from my secondary computer it lets me know that access is denied. I can access pretty much any other folder on the computer other than program files. Any help??


A:Unlocking file sharing for Program Files

Hi Twig1983. . .

I don't believe it is possible to share the entire c: drive or the entire Program Files folder in Vista because of sub-folders/files in each of which you (the user name you logged on with) are not the owner of, not to mention files within each whose attributes are system and/or hidden. The "<access denied>" screen that came up is a product of Vista's User Access Control (UAC).

However, there are usually ways around any rule.

A few questions first, please. . .

1. Are these PC's XP-> Vista upgrades, or new Vista installations?

2. When you elected the share, were you logged on with an admin account?

3. Is the admin account that you use one that was set up at the time of the Vista installation?

4. Is the user account on PC#2 an admin account or a standard user account (that you are using and get <access denied>)?

5. Do you get the <access denied> message simply trying to read the folder/file from PC#2? What about during program execution?

6. Prior to the <access denied> message, is there a UAC prompt?

7. Yes >> Does it ask for a password, or can you simply select "Continue"?

8. Are you sure that it is the Program Files folder you are failing on or could it be the ProgramData folder (which the Program Files folder uses for most of its non source-code data under Vista)?

9. Have you looked at the Event Viewer?

10. Is it necessary to elect to share the entire c: drive and Program Files folder or just faster (rather than changing each applicable folder)?

11. What about other folders like ProgramData that is used during program execution? (ProgramData is a hidden folder).

I've been a VB6 developer for quite some time, and have recently thought up a great idea for a new kind of file sharing program that I think would really catch on.
Unfortunately, I'm horrible with TCP/IP. I've tried it dozens of times in the past, and have had very little luck with creating a simple chat program, let alone binary file transfer.

So if anyone knows some TCP/IP operations with any ActiveX components for VB6, and cares to partake in a little devlopment adventure with me, feel free to email me at [email protected]

I was considering a piece of freeware called Hamachi to use my home PC get and store files on my PC at work. I would not need to do it that often and could not see getting PCAnywhere. I came across what I thought was a free VPN program called Hamachi ( ). The discussion on a newsgroup made it sound like my PC at work would not allow any computer to connect to it unless the other computer had the same private encryption key as the work PC.

I just saw a TSG thread about Hamachi that was locked because the moderator considered the program to be too much like a P2P file sharing program. Am I missing something about this program or was the moderator just being overly cautious? The last thing I want on my work PC is a P2P file sharing program.

You then put your external hard drive to it and all of the computers connected to that router will be able to stream videos, etc. For a Netgear router which I'm using, the path is \\readyshare\USB_Storage. You can see this path in the network pane of Windows explorer as long as network discovery and file and printer sharing is enabled. You don't need to worry about these settings as long as you choose your connection as "Home" profile and not "public"

I can't help you with 3rd party software since I mainly use the method above to stream videos.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

There is a process running on my computer called csrss.exe
I went to and looked it up and came up with 2 different things. One says it is a Trojan and needs to be removed. The same exact process name also says it is Microsoft client server runtime server and SHOULD NOT be removed.
How I am supposed to tell the difference so I do not make a mistake by either leaving it alone or removing it???

Here is one I have used in the past that shows all running process and what dll's they use.
The way to use it is after starting it, go to file -- open module then browse to the dll that you want info on and open it.

Then you can look at its dependencies.

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

Hi I'm working on a client/server with the Java programming language and trying to figure out how to protect my server. With my current Virus/Firewall protection suite theres nothing I can do to keep out unwanted Java applications on the port I choose to allow the Java SE Binary through for clients accessing the server application. ESET Smart Security 4 is what I am using. Does anybody know of a security suite that would allow only a specific Java application to get through the firewall? I'm not to sure on this subject because my firewall is identifying any Java application as only the "Java SE Binary" and not I'm sure if you can even really name your Java application like you would something you would write in C++. Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

In Vista, what happens when you enable password protected file sharing over normal file sharing?

I realize it requires credentials but what is changed on the system to require this?

If I enable just File Sharing (and not the password protected option) and have the share/NTFS permissions set for a user, connecting to the share fails as it never prompts for the username/password.

When you turn on password protected sharing you are prompted then for a username/password. What I want to know is what changes on the system to then prompt for credentials?

Same thing in reverse. If I set the 'require password for sharing' and have the group 'Everyone' in the share and NTFS permissions I am still prompted for credentials if I connect.

A:VPN client and server

You need to make sure that you've got your routing and remote access server role configured correctly. You should be receiving an IP that allows for browsing the network, although netbios doesn't always work easily depending on the network topology. A couple of simple issues I've encountered are things like trying the VPN from within the network (rarely works), connecting from a network with the same subnet as the one you're connecting to (having the internal network 192.168.1.x locally and the network being connected to having the same 192.168.1.x address range), and lastly having firewalls not play nicely. I don't think you're having that issue since you've received an IP, albeit one that has a restrictive subnet mask. Start by checking the routing and remote access configuration on the server to make sure it's handing out the correct information to remote clients.

I want all incoming and outgoing data from my PC to be more secure, so I
I want to set up an SSH server on my Home PC using Cygwin, but I also want the SSH client to be on my PC. Is this possible, or do I need to have an external/second PC to act as the server? Also, if all my internet traffic goes through this SSH server, how will it affect my normal browsing? Will I have issues connecting to my regular websites (youtube, facebook, msn, yahoo, gmail, etc etc)?

Thank you

A:SSH server and client on the same PC

Umm...that is not going to make anything more or less secure. SSH is for creating secure connections to remote systems. (Mainly for administrating) It creates a VPN in a way. It does not make your browser usage secure. Connecting to an SSH server on the local machine is pointless anyways. You are already on the local machine!

Hello All,

I took over supporting a sm. business that has 7 workstations, 2 networked printers and 2 local printers. The bldg. has a DSL connection and the modem goes through a router. All the workstations and networked printers connect to a single 16 port switch which is connected to a server running MS SBS 2003 r2. My question is where should the internet connect to? If I connect it to the switch everyone has internet which is fine but shouldn't I connect it to a secondary NIC in the server instead? What services would I need to configure to allow that type of configuration? Oh BTW, the server is set as a DHCP, file server.
With the internet connected to the switch directly users are reporting slow response when accessing shared files on the server, etc.

Any comments are appreciated.

A:Client-Server Networking

If you don't need to control Internet access, the simpler configuration will just be to connect the router directly to the switch and let it be the DHCP server. Disable the DHCP server on the SBS server.

Hey all I have workstations and one server and we re having trouble keeping the workstations connected to the shared drives on our server I think that it might be a DNS error but don t know how to isolate it Our network is configured as follows DNS; Server-Client-Internet... clients connecting to our router and server also connected to our router and our router then is connected to our modem The DNS on our server is set to be static with a preferred DNS of x x x and nothing for the secondary Our client machines are using the DNS provided to us by our ISP which is x x x and a secondary of x x DNS; Server-Client-Internet... x Now my question is should our server be using the ISP DNS settings or should the client machines be using the server DNS setting or should they all be using the same thing and if so how will that impact our connecting to our domain and or the internet Also you might be able to shed some light on the fact that our windows clients seem to be able to connect to our server much faster and more efficient than our WinXP boxes and don t lose connectivity Do you know why that is Thanks in advance nbsp

Hi All

I want all incoming and outgoing data from my PC(Windows 7 ultimate) to be more secure, so I
I want to set up an SSH server on my Home PC using Cygwin, but I also want the SSH client to be on my PC. Is this possible, or do I need to have an external/second PC to act as the server? Also, if all my internet traffic goes through this SSH server, how will it affect my normal browsing? Will I have issues connecting to my regular websites (youtube, facebook, msn, yahoo, gmail, etc etc)?

Thank you

I've spent the best part of a month trying to get a VPN connection from a Windows Ultimate client to a Windows Pro server After all of the client Server from VPN W7U W8.1 problems Pro to below I have today managed to get a VPN connection from the W client to the W server but Network and Sharing Center on W says 'RAS Dial In Interface Public Network Access Type No internet access' and although the W client shows that the connection was successful I can't see the VPN network I have VPN problems from W7U client to W8.1 Pro Server no actual access to ANYTHING on the W PC Below are details of the configurations Connections The W client is connected to the internaet via 'Internet Sharing' on my Nokia Lumia The W Server is connected via my Virgin Super Hub router So both the server and the client have different WAN 'external' IPs Router The WAN IP although I haven't paid for static ALWAYS stays the same After multiple failures I've changed the default gateway on the server W from to so as to avoid IP clashing I can get access to the internet so there appears to be no connectivity issues associated with the change of Gateway IP I've opened the following ports on my Virgin Super Hub TCP TCP amp UDP TCP amp UDP UDP UDP TCP UDP TCP amp UDP ALL pointing to the W PC at Initially I opened only but with no success it was only when I opened the others that I connected to the server I've allowed pass through on Ipsec PPTP and 'Multicast' Windows VPN Client PC I've successfully set up a VPN connection to the W server PC Using the Virgin Super Hub router WAN IP that is current and regularly checked via the Network and Sharing Center Windows VPN Server PC I've successfully set up an 'Incoming Connections' via the Network and Sharing Center I've created a user and recorded the username and password for such I've ticked the IPv IPv 'File and Sharing for Microsoft Networks' and the QoS Packet Scheduler boxes in the 'Incoming Connections' properties I've allowed all of the above ports through the firewall I've allowed Remote acces to the computer via System Properties Remote ALL files etc are set to 'Shared' and they can be accessed via Homegroup from the W pc I'm at a loss to understand why even though the client declares that a VPN connection has been made that there is no actual access to ANYTHING AT ALL on the server nor when the W client declares that there is a VPN connection to the W server is there any internet access on the W client I respectfully ask for your guidance

First i start a little of topic: thank you guy's for helping me on my last problem thanks.
but i have a new 1 for you
I'm trying to connect over VPN to a other pc there both on the same network so i try locally first it works.
After that i go trow my router i port mapped port 1723 TCP and UDP to the server and 500 and 50 and 51 and 47 all TCP and UDP after i did this is try connecting going to the outside.
And what happens then:
everything looks well at start than i get the “verifying username and password” screen then it just dies out slowly and pain fully.
Do i just miss a port or what ?
Anybody had this problem and fixed it ?
Thanks for reading my post.

In our office we have one server and about 15 clients.
When the server goes down or reboots there is no Internet.
Why can't a client get internet when the server is down.

Is it a DNS issue?
The server is connected to the switch, and I have a spare box that i was thinking i could put a backup of that service.

I have a small domain set up in my house for my MCSA studies. I'm using Virtual PC and have a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition DC/DNS server and one XP Pro Client. Server01 and Client01.

I have created a User account for myself in Active Directory and am a member of the Domain Admins. Client01 is shown as a member of the domain both in AD and in it's own System Properties. I can ping the server from the client and access it in My Network Places. However, I cannot ping the Client from the server, nor can I access Client01 from My Network Places on the Server.

I am also able to log on to the client using my domain username and password. This has me stumped.
There is no firewall running on either machine. I even checked IE security settings but that isn't the problem. Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated.

Is it not possible to make a program be both a client & server? I'm new to the winsock control & just finished reading PINO's basic intro. I did the peer-to-peer project for client/server chat. However, I want the program to be both a server & a client so two people don't have to worry about one being the server & one being the client.

I have the code for the program to listen. However, when I put the code for it to make a connection & click the button for that code, it states "invalid operation at current state".

So is it possible to have a program be both a client & server? I think it is and maybe it needs 2 winsock controls? Any help is greatly appreciated.

For many years I have been using Ventrilo as a non-SIP based Voip program due to its simplicity. It works great, but the codec is dated, and the program is loaded in so many proprietary shackles it is ridiculous (aside from that creepy tracking feature.) However, one nice aspect is that it uses TCP for its voice packets (so they all arrive sounding normal.)

I tried using Mumble, but it only has a TCP mode as an afterthought and you cannot configure servers to force TCP mode for all clients. I do like how it is encrypted though (few actually bother with this.)

Does anyone know of something like Vent/TS/Mumble that uses Opus or a similar high quality codec, without tracking features, and uses TCP? I would really prefer not to have to program something entirely myself...

Hi all I 5 interruptions TCP client/server second am currently working on 5 second TCP client/server interruptions a project that is giving me trouble for quite some time now Using c and VS I wrote a client and server application that is TCP IP based on a really basic level The project idea is simple A server sends some image data to a client Later on to multiple clients The amount of data may change depending on how fast the server can acquire images e g webcam fps MB s or more By design the client server connection must not be delayed 5 second TCP client/server interruptions sine all delayed data is immediately thrown away I know some of you will say quot use UDP quot but since it obviously should also work with TCP and I don't want to lose any packages at all I want to use TCP During server client execution I now noticed some unexpected image freezes Observing the process monitor's task manager's I O tab I noticed a second delay during each of the freeze periods These freezes are occurring randomly and I cannot reproduce them at will Here is a log print of the data rate per seconds MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s MB s First I thought that the sdk I'm using had some problems with winsockets Therefore I also implemented a version of both server and client using another c sdk and later on for confirmation java Testing all combinations on MS Windows I realized that the error is occurring with each server client combination Then I checked the same portable java code on XP and Linux systems The result was that on XP and Linux the server client system worked without any freezes On Windows it did not And since I have no idea what the problem could be I am now asking you the community for some ideas I already tried to turn of the Nagle algorithm that according to some forum post may sometimes cause problems Using Google I've found a link to a similar question But for me none of those answers are helpfull I also tried the suggestions in the following forum I guess since the problem is only occurring on Windows systems something has to be different in the way Windows handles TCP connections compared to Windows XP Thanks in advance for any responses

Hi rhodanos,
Sorry for the confusion in my steps, for steps three, it can be also applied into the Windows Vista later. So you can try the command on Windows 7 for disabling SMBv2.
After that, please let me know the result.
Besides, I'm not familiar with the script, so I'm afraid I couldn't help you to check this.
Thanks for your understanding.

I need some expertise "know how" in this matter. I have an office in location A and another office in location B.
A is protected by Firewall-1 Checkpoint and running Exchange 5.5 mail system. Point B is using Proxy Server 1.1 and Exchange 5.5.
Office A is the HQ and Office B is the branch. I need to sync the Exchange for these 2 offices. How do I go about doing it?
I intend to use only VPN remote client access to login users from Location B to Location A. By doing so, I dun think I sync my Exchange on both end but at least I can control those those login in via VPN.
Ideas/advices much appreciated.

Over the last year a co-worker and I have been developing a complex Job-Costing system in a Microsoft Access Database (4.0). It is a 50 Meg file that is on our Server. The problem is that only one person can Access the Database at a time. This is going to be hell when we accually release this to the other 15 people is the office. I have experimented with an access 2000 Project (MSDE Client/Server) but I dont think it is the option for our office. I was wondering what was needed to make our database multi-user. It says it can handle up to 255 multiple users, and 1 user is far from that limit.
Please give me all the information you can. Thanks.
