XP Firewall

  Snakey 20:44 08 Dec 2003

I have just added a Win XP Pro PC to my home network. When I enable the Firewall I am unable to view my 'Shared Folder' from other PCs on the Network. When disabled I can view the files.

Is there anything in the advanced 'Settings' that I need to perform to just have access to the 'Shared Folder'

Kind Regards

I don't think you will find the XP firewall very much use. It doesn't work very well.

You need to only enable the firewall to the INTERNET connection, not the LAN connection for the Home network.

Or get yourself a better firewall with Network config.
