Turning off Norton 2005 Firewall

  iedwards1919 19:05 16 Jan 2006

In order for my desktop to allow my laptops to print via wireless connection I have to have the firewall on my desktop turned off.
I have set it to off and said that i want it off permanently. However, every time I turn off the computer and turn it back on again it has switched the firewall back on. What do I need to do??

I use Norton firewall, and never had any problem with getting my laptop to print with wireless via my desktop.

Perhaps you have set firewall to stop it.

I know it doesn't help you much, but I would chech your settings.

All you need to do is go into the firewall settings on the desktop and place the laptops in the trusted zone.

Can you talk me through how I do that please

How will I know the network addresses of the laptops

There's no harm turning your firewall off if you're not online. Just remember to switch it back on before you go back online.
