Not able to connect to my server from Windows 7
I am unable to connect to my server through my network. I have multiple machines running XP and Vista that re connecting without problems using the same user name and logon. My Windows 7 machine has been connecting fine for the past 3 months now i am getting and error message telling me that my user name or login are incorrect. I am able to connect to my Windows 7 desktop from my server. I can see the server in my network list. I have pinged my server and 4 packets were sent and recieved, no errors. any help i resolving this will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Is the Windows 7 machine in a domain or a Workgroup? Can you access other machine from Windows 7 machine? At this stage, I suggest you temporarily turn off firewall on each machine for a test. If the issue persists, please create a new user account on Server and login on the Windows 7 machine with the new created user account, and then access the server again. If the error message persists, please capture and upload it. Thanks, Novak

I tried the above and had no luck. After hours of digging i came up with a thread containing the following - click the start button and type secpol.msc in the search function. Browse to "Local Policies" -> "Security Options". Now look for the entry "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level" and open it. Click on the dropdown menu and select "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated". Apply the settings. In the Advanced sharing settings page of Network and sharing center, you need to have it set as Work/Home profile. Try -Enable network discovery-Turn on file and print sharing-Turn off password protected sharing-Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers The other settings such as encryption I have set as use 128 bit encryption.I tried this and was able to get right into both of my servers without problem.

I was having the same problem for the past few days. It turned out (For Me) that I had around a dozen things being shared on the C drive. I went through and simply removed them leaving just users in there. Worked fine after that. cybersleauth
