      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.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
