Norton Firewall

  AJ25 11:44 20 Nov 2005

I have a Wireless network set up using an ASUS router . Main PC is running XP. Laptop runs XP Pro. Every time I want to use my network to share files, I have to first disable the Norton Firewall on the main PC. Only for a few seconds though. As soon as I disable it, the connection runs perfectly fine. I can even turn it on again and still have perfectly good file sharing. The internet connection is not subject to this problem. It always works. I have tried to configure the firewall but it has made no difference. Also, even when the firewall is off, I can't see the other PC on either explorer tree. I do a search to find the other PC.
