NET VIEW 1231

Recommended Posts

Continuing to work on Windows 10 networking, I found another error by reading more posts in forums. This one, as the title says, relates to NET VIEW. When I run this command on my Windows 10 desktop computer I get the 'dreaded' 1231 error. I haven't got it resolved. If anyone has any ideas, please post them. I'm now looking at something called lanmanworkstation. The post recommends changing running "sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi". No idea what that does. Then I'm supposed to run " sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled". Again, no idea.

 

Anyway, I think I will do a backup of drive C: before even attempting anything like this.

 

Oh, and Paragon Backup cannot find my server at all.

On the PC that you ran the Net View command, can you see the server under Networking?

Since I made the change to that computer's IP addressing, yes. I also just discovered I can view the shared folders on my server if I type NET VIEW \\SERVERNAME. Apparently, it's only when I type NET VIEW by itself that I get the error. From my online searching, I thought I was supposed to see all the computers on my LAN, but I don't.

 

Oh, and as a test, I installed the Backup Pro trial version, and it can see my server.

 

What the heck, I'm downloading Veeam Backup Free 9.5 to give it a try.

      I have a project that could use the  expertise of you talented members. As you all know, my father is dead, but my mother is very much alive. She doesn't live a horrible distance from us, but it's far enough that we don't just run there on a whim. With that in mind, here are some factors I'm considering:
       
      I do all her banking, bill paying, etc. Of course, I do it online. She used to be a teller in a bank, so she still very much likes to keep her own records. To help with that, I used Word to create a 'bank book' for her that gives a great deal more room for entries than what is normally provided by typical cheque books. At the moment, I have to print new blank sheets at home, then take them to her. Of course, I love to visit her, but sometimes she needs new sheets at a time when I'm too busy, or I'm away. Being able to print some remotely at her condo would be a benefit.
        Sometimes, friends and family send me emails intended for her, because she doesn't have a computer. She's never used a computer in her life, and she says she has no intention of starting at her age. Being able to remotely print them at her condo would also be beneficial.
        We have an Epson WF-7510 printer. It used to be the main printer on our network, but I replaced it with an Epson Eco-tank printer because the ink is so much cheaper per page. We print a lot more than my mother, so I was thinking the WF-7510 would be a great printer for remote printing.
        I did take the printer to her condo, and connected it to her Cisco cable modem. I then, after considerable trial and error, managed to get it set up to work with Epson Connect. It was working pretty well that way, until I tried to print out some medical record sheets for her. It was a PDF, and it got royally messed up. It seems the document is too complicated (or something) for Epson Connect to handle.
        So I'm looking for a better way to enable this remote printing. I know google has a cloud printing service, but it requires the use of the Chrome browser. My father always warned me off Chrome, saying it was insecure and he refused to use it for anything. In fact, he basically didn't use google for anything. He once told me to never trust a company that says they're not evil. He recommend I use FireFox, so that's what I've done for years. Also, since Epson Connect screwed up, I'm a little leery about using another cloud printing service.
        I know how to use Remote Desktop. My father taught me how to use it to administer my server. I thought it might be a solution. I could set up a tiny ASrock computer I have on the shelf at her condo, connect the printer to it, then use RDP to connect to the ASrock, copy over whatever document needs printing, and print it from the ASrock directly. That should work, shouldn't it? I could even keep documents she needs regularly on the ASrock permanently, so I wouldn't have to copy them over each time. My only concern is my father told me Remote Desktop isn't really all that secure over the Internet.
        I've also heard of VPN. I was wondering if it might be an option since, from what I've read so far, it seems to be secure over the Internet  
      Any ideas, suggestions, recommendations, or other feedback would be most welcome.
