Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
sorry what is a Span
Network Technician: Joseph, Software Engineer replied 8 years ago
Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN), sometimes called port mirroring or port monitoring, copies switch network traffic and forwards it out the SPAN port for analysis by a network analyzer. By enabling the SPAN, you can monitor traffic on a switch port by forwarding incoming and outgoing traffic to another port for data collection and analysis. You can use a network analyzer on this monitor port to troubleshoot network problems by examining traffic on other ports or segments without taking the network out of service.

SPAN Port
The port that receives the copy of all traffic, also referred to as the destination port when configuring SPAN.

when i try to open from other place it's show one message no permission for that pc
Network Technician: Joseph, Software Engineer replied 8 years ago
1. Start > Run > regedit.exe
2. Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Lsa
3. Change the value of a key called "restrictanonymous" to 0 instead of 1 or 2.
4. Don't change "restrictanonymoussam" value.
5. The value should be REG_DWORD and Hexadecimal Base. (That's the default for that key)
6. Restart your computer and access the resources on that PC, it should work properly.

let me know how it goes.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer~!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you with your question.

This could be caused by a couple of issues.

First off lets verify that file and printer sharing is enabled (i'm sure it is I just wanna make sure we cover everything)
  • Click start, click run and type in ncpa.cpl and push ok and the network connections window will open. Right click on the connection you currently use weather it be the LAN or WAN and then click on properties and make sure that "file and printer sharing" has a check mark next to it then push ok and close out of network connections.
Next we wanna make sure that you have the folder setup right to share.
  • Click start, click "my computer" and write click on the shared folder and select "Sharing and Security" and make sure you have a check mark next to "share this folder" on the network and also "allow network users to change my files"(since i'm assuming your the only one using the network)
Next we can make sure the permissions are right.
  • Click start click "my computer" click tools click folder options click the view tab at the top and remove the check mark from "Use Simple File Sharing(recommended). then push ok
  • Now right click on your shared folder and click on "sharing and security" then click on the security tab at the top and make sure that the correct permissions are setup for you other computers to access the shared folder then push ok.

Network Technician: Ryan B., Network Specialist replied 8 years ago
I am so sorry for my delayed response, I had something come up and wasn't able to get to my computer. Are you still in need of assistance?

Is the error you are getting similar to this one?

\\Pc-Name\SharedDocs is not accessible. You might not have permission
to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server
to find out if you have access permissions.
