Solution to “file and print sharing [xxx] resource is online but isn’t responding to connection attempts”.
This occurred after an instantaneous power failure. I was unable to connect over my network to a shared array of hard drives. I kept getting the error above when I allowed the built-in Windows 10 diagnostic utility to help.
This method is a hybrid of what I found online.
- On the PC that you are unable to connect to, click the Start button and type CMD
- Right click the Command Prompt utility in the menu and select Run as administrator
- At the command prompt, type in each of the follow, exactly, one at a time, followed by the Enter key
- ipconfig /flushdns
- ipconfig /registerdns
- netsh winsock reset
- netsh int ip reset
- ipconfig /renew
- Then reboot the computer
- If you had a static IP in the computer, you may have to reset that.
