Data transfer works only one-way ?! Please help ...

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Gilles Garrigues, May 24, 2008.

  1. Here is my problem.

    I have a local network (Netgear router) under WinXP SP2 with 2 desktops and
    2 laptops (Wi-Fi connection).Each one has a shared folder for communication.
    They all access internet without a problem BUT:
    The 2 desktops and one laptop communicate between themselves without any
    The 2. laptop can receive shared data from the 3 other computers but the 3
    other computers CANNOT access shared data located on the 2. laptop. The
    error message says (in french) something like:
    \\laptop2\tranfer is not accessible. You may not have the necessary rights
    to access this network ressource. Contact your administrator... Not enough
    memory on the serveur to handle that command".

    This used to work like a charm for the past 2 years. What the hell is
    happening ?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  2. If you logon both computers using the same administrator account with the
    same password, can you access it?

  3. Thanks Bob for your help. However administrator rights are not the problem.

    I Googled a little bit (should have started there) and found out that the
    reason originates from installing Acronis True Image 11 on laptop 2.
    The workaround: use regedit and create a new key "IRPStackSize" with a value
    18 or higher in
    No wonder I could't solve it myself :))

    BTW this can also happen with some Anti-Virus softs.
