Home n/w file sharing and Windows Firewall

  splinternet 13:50 18 Apr 2008

I have a fairly usual setup at home with a desktop running a wireless router which allows a couple of laptops to connect up. It seems the only way to share files and printers is to switch off Windows Firewall altogether; if it's on, the "File and Printer Sharing" tickbox on the Exceptions tab doesn't work. This doesn't sound like it's working as designed.
