Error 0x80070035 – The network path was not found

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

In an environment with Site-to-Site VPNs and Windows 7 clients on the branch offices you can be faced with the Error 0x80070035 – The network path was not found, when users try to access file services provided with DFS shares.

The standard protocol used to access file services is SMBv1 and SMBv2, depending on legacy client and servers or current version OS client and server like Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

There is a bug in the Mrsxsmb10.drv driver, causing some trouble.

iPhone 4 Personal Hotspot WiFi

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Since iOS 4.3 the iPhone is able to act as an Access Point. Three options are available to use the iPhone as an Internet Network Adapter via USB, Bluetooth and WiFi.

You will recognize that the USB and Bluetooth feature works fine for you. But when you use it as an Access Point and connect it via WLAN the connection is not stable.

When you plug the iPhone with power, you get also stable WLAN connections. But not when the iPhone runs on battery. This could be an issue which is not that obvious until now. So don’t wonder if you run your iPhone on battery and try to use it as an Access Point, it will not work until you plug it with power.
