System : windows 10 Home edition : 1909.18363.535
The initial purpose was to share the printer HP Officejet 6600 (usb connected)that is set as shared on the computer and working, on the laptop I get the error : Windows cannot connect to the printer. Check the printer name. If it is a network printer make sure it is turned on and that the printer address is correct.
I checked all that.
Since this failed I tried to make a network connection from the laptop to the computer with the result hereafter.
On the laptop : file and print resource (DESKTOP-L....) is online but isn’t responding to connection attempts : error code 0x80070035.The remote computer isn’t responding to connections on port 445, possibly due to firewall or security settings, or because it might be temporarily unavailable.Windows couldn’t find any problem with the firewall on your computer.
netbios over TCP/IP is enabled,
Network discovery is on, file and printer sharing as well and the printer is marked as shared.
I changed the settings accordingly on both desktop and laptop.
SMB1 = enabled, Sharing wizard is checked in folder options, Function discovery resource publication and funtion discovery provider host is set to automatic.
The public folder is set to shared.
I was able to connect the laptop through the desktop but after restarting, they are visible but refuse to connect.
I even did a network reset and clicked yes to : allow the computer to be discoverable.
Since this going on for a while now, I hope someone can help me out, I cannot think of anything any more and followed all the recommendations I could find.
After all that changing etc. I got the internet to be very slow. After disabling : allow downloads from other PC’s in windows settings it got better for a while, it’s on and off really.
