      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Mappin network drive in Wndows xp

Recommended Posts

LwnmwnMan2

I'm trying to get my accounting program set up for my business to share on 3 different computers I have around my house.

I can get it to the point where I'm trying to map the drive on a peer-to-peer network, from the host computer, but then it asks me for a username / password. I can't figure out what I should be putting in there.

Any help????

Thanks.

It may be asking you as the administrator for that information, which could be your login name and password.

XP Professional I assume. You have to setup the permissions from the "server" computer, and you have to login as Administrator to start with.

Once mapped and permission setup you can login as user again.

XP Home is much easier, but less secure.

Then logoff and login as administrator, go to control panel then change your user acount proprieties to administrator.

All I do to map drives is lookup computer on My Network Places, then right click on drive (or folder) and choose Map Drive.

Is the password request from Windows or from accounting software ? If it's from acct software you might need to get a multiuser version to run it on 3 computers, which software is it ?

I believe it's a request from Windows, and I say this, because it looks like a windows-window, not my accounting program.

I'm starting to think I may have underlying issues as well.

Whenever I try setting up a new network location, it won't keep what I'm typing in for the network name, it always reverts back to MSHOME.

On my laptop, I can view the workgroup computers, but not on the desktop in my office. It only shows the computer that is in my office (a file icon) and the computer that's in my shop (networked file icon). It doesn't show the laptop at all.

When "view workstation computers" from the laptop, it shows all 3 computers, with the "3 workstation computers icon" in front of the names.

I've got to go haul some firewood in this rain, so I'll have to keep working on it when I get back.

I am going to assume that you already shared the folder the PC in question. In that case right click on my computer and go to manage then to users and groups you can add a user there to share. I am not that familar with windows home, but you should have to assign rights to the folder on the PC that has the shared folder. If that is the case, you will need to logon using the sharing computers name and then the logon and password. Should look something like {computer name}\username. If you just put in a username without the home computer name in there it may not let you logon.

This kind of stuff is one good reason to pony up the extra $$$ and get the Windows XP Pro.

Usually XP Home is fairly easy to share out, I wonder if you have one or possibly even 2 different firewalls running, things like that can drive you nuts..... trust me. Then put access permissions on top of that.

Not a big fan of network like that anyway, other problems can arise because of it. Now days you can get those Network Attached Storage devices, all it is, is a hard drive in a enclosuer with a network port and a web interface to set it up plug it right into your router or network hub and you should be setup shortly. Probably would be the way I would go, could eliminate alot of headaches.

Good luck !

I spent hours when I was setting up my home network trying to figure out why I could only see folders from one PC and not the other. It turned out that with the firewall program I was running it wouldn't allow my other PC in the network in even though I had it explicitly added. mad.gif

If I had the firewalls running (which I do) wouldn't that allow me to see the computers that don't?? Or am I looking at it backwards??

Does the firewall not allow me to access another computer, from the firewalled computer, since that would be bringing info back into this computer?

Wouldn't the firewall not allow me to access this computer with the laptop??

There are several different firewalls you need to be concerned with. 1 is the windows firewall and the other is the Norton/Macaffee style firewall. Try going to start, then run, key in cmd (it should open a commmand window) then key in "ping {computername} this should tell you if the pc that you are trying to access the files from can even see/find the other computer. If it can't, find the sharing computers IP address and then go back to the other PC and key in "ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (the IP address of the sharing computer). You can find the IP address by keying in ipconfig at a command prompt. If you can't find it by name but can by IP address you access the share by IP address then share name.

Not sure if you have tried any of this, but if not it is a place to start.

When it asks for your username /password you need to put in

computer name\username

password

This information that you use needs to be an acoount on the machine you are connecting to. Not the one you are connecting from.

Example: Computer name: Beretta

username: LwnmwnMan2

password: beaver

It would look like so: username: Beretta\LwnmwnMan2

password: beaver

if you have any other questions PM me I can help you out. It's what I do.

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
