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.

  1. On the PC that you are unable to connect to, click the Start button and type CMD
  2. Right click the Command Prompt utility in the menu and select Run as administrator
  3. 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
  4. Then reboot the computer
  5. If you had a static IP in the computer, you may have to reset that.
