I’m using a windows 7 OS on my computer and I can’t share a file using my file sharing port. I encounter the server message block while I’m trying to share a file. I’ve seen forums using PING to check the connectivity of the file sharing. How can I check on what is the problem? Thank you for your response

Hi Dustin Albas,
First, you have to check the connectivity of your network, in order to check that, please access some website like google.com FaceBook.com, etc. If you have viewed their original pages, the problem is the server for sharing is down and is not accessible, to fix that, you have to PING the server by going to start > type 'cmd' > press enter. At the console, type -ping <IP of the server> and see if the connection is timing out. If so, the server's down.
