the remote device or resource won t accept connection Results

I have been dealing with an issue where I am only able to get on a couple of websites, while every other website will not load. I have checked my auto-config settings and ive reset Internet Explorer. I used Microsoft's tool that tells you what the problem is and it came up with "the remote device or resource won't accept the connection". Ive gone through many different steps to find an answer to the problem and still unable to access any other website, im using a friends computer to hopefully get an answer to this issue. The operating system is Win 7 on a Toshiba Laptop. Thanks for the help.


i have just installed HP WebjetAdmin on a W7 64bit Office Pro installation.

It installed fine and is the 64bit version. Since restarting I get the error message

The remote device or resource won't accept the connection
Detected [IMG]res://sdiageng.dll/warning.png[/IMG] The device or resource (localhost) is not set up to accept connections on port "8000".

'windows cannot access'

message. diagnose says:

'the remote device or resource won't accept the connection - detected - little yellow triangle with ! mark'

any help gratefully appreciated,


I am having a strange problem.

I tele-commute to work. In my home I have 4 pc's with various software on them. To work I have a secure vpn connection to servers that I need to access. Included in what I access is a D-Link DNS-323 SAN drive.

While connected to the VPN from my Windows XP computer I can access the shares on the SAN with no trouble, it is instantaneous and always there, from my Windows 7 64bit computer however I cannot connect to the SAN.

The error I can see is this:

The remote device or resource won't accept the connection The device or resource ( is not set up to accept connections on port "The File and printer sharing (SMB)".

Obviously from my home the device CAN accept connections and the device must be configured properly because I can use from my other computers as can other employees.

I run Windows 7, x64 on an Intel processor, I have IP6 turned off at the network card, I have disabled the firewall entirely.

So far my googling has not provided me with a good answer. Re-formatting is not a option (and I have seen people have success using it according to their posts). My computer has to remain intact, but I do periodically need access to this device.

Anyone have a good idea what to do?

I have been using Windows 7 since the start of the year.I recently acquired an unwelcome visitor - a program reporting numerous virus infections that could be removed if I purchased a particular piece of software. I immediately closed down my internet connection, and deleted the suspect program. A full scan with Norton 360 reported no issues other than tracking cookies. However, since then I have been unable to use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. The browsers both report "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection". Firefox works perfectly, as before. Windows update similarly fails to work, being unable to make a connection and blaming error 0x80072EFD. I have reinstalled Windows 7, and the situation is unchanged.

My OS is Win 7 Pro 32 bit with SP1, and I share folders with my friend Maria who has XP Home with SP3.

I recently had a problem accessing the folders Maria shares with me. I ran network diagnostics on my Win 7 machine and was told "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection.The device or resource (MARIA) is not set up to receive connections on port "The file and printer sharing (SMB)""

I ran Network Diagnostics on Maria's machine and was told there was a problem with my modem and/or router. I turned them off and then restarted them, and then,as per advice given in another thread by swatbat2142, which made all the difference,I restarted both machines and the networking problem was solved. However, I would still appreciate advice about the message I received when I ran network diagnostics on my Win 7 machine.

Apart from the above, I checked the settings for my router and found that in the Wireless settings 802.11g protection is disabled, and UPnP and the router Firewall are also disabled. I would much appreciate advice on the pros and cons of enabling these items.

Thanks and regards,Roy
