|Hi, I'm pretty new to this forum, so please excuse if I sounds funny |
Let me first provide a brief description here,
I've got a windows server 2003 machine which access internet over a Netgear N150 router also I've got an static IP, now internet is working properly even I can ping my machine from a remote machine.
Here starts the real problem, I've shared few folders which I can't access from any remote machine not in my LAN.
Although I could access my server through remote desktop and everything else is working fine, so please guide me guys
Note: I've opened port 445 on router even that didn't helped also Windows firewall is OFF.
Now when I try to browse my server through \\myserverip it shows me a blank window but when I tried to access it like \\myserverip\sharedfolder it gives me error which reads something like
"File and printer sharing seems online but server is not responding on port 445."
Please help me guys, I've tried to explain it in some technical way although doesn't know if I succeed a bit :)
Thanks in advance
