  scooby43 11:48 27 Sep 2003

I just wanted to ask my mum uses zonealarm on her computer and I have norton personal firewall 2003 but when she wants to print I have to keep disabling my firewall is there any way to configure norton so I dont have to keep disabling it for her to print?

I forgot to mention I am using norton internet secruity but just the firewall I unticked the antivirus at instalation as I am using AVG if that helps too

I also have another problem I previously had norton on my mums but it wont let me install it again it says

Restart required:

before installing norton internet security you must restart you computer to complete an earlier uninstallation, restart you romputer then run installer again that same message keeps coming up however many times I keep restarting the comp I tried rnis.exe but it dosnt seem to even run.

Remove NIS using the following program and instructions then reinstall it for your mums computer: click here

Also you need in norton Internet security to allow your mums computer to print to yours is to add the computer to your firewall as trusted, while the firewall blocks other computers:

To automatically configure the Home or Workgroup Networking Wizard:

Open the NIS, NPF, or NIS Pro main program window.

Double-click Personal Firewall.

Click the Home or Workgroup Networking tab.

Click the Wizard button. The Home or Workgroup Network Wizard screen appears.

Click Next. NIS, NPF, or NIS Pro will scan your internal network for adapters. NIS, NPF, and NIS Pro will display information about each network adapter. The Subnet Address, Subnet Mask, and Hardware Address are automatically assigned.

If there are multiple network cards on the network, then each Adapter card will be listed with a different Subnet Address and Subnet Mask for each one. DO NOT ADD INTERNET COMPUTERS, only home network computers and adapters. Not internet adapters.

Click Next.

Click Finish.
