Help... I have two computers networked, with the master running ME, and having printers and internet connected. My problem is with the client, running XP, which can access the internet but cannot share my printer. I have Sygate free firewall, version 5.5. There are no problems when I shut down the firewall.
My question is 'Does the free version of Sygate support networks, and if not can anyone suggest a free firewall which supports Internet sharing and File sharing.

Options, Network neighbourhood, Allow others to browse / share my printers.

The two options are already ticked for the internet NIC, but there is no NIC shown for the network. I can share files with the client.
