Re: Networking 2 computers
In the Norton firewall you have to put the LAN IP range into Norton's local
or safe zone. Apart from the LAN's address range you might also have to add
the computers individual IPs, 0.0.0.0 and 127.0.0.1 into the local zone.
There might also be a setting in Norton to allow or block the file and
printer sharing ports that you should look for. Check that UPNP and svchost
are not blocked for LAN access.
I found that Norton's firewall (2004 version) always eventually blocked my
wireless connection to the router so I just gave up on that firewall. With
Vista you can probably do without a 3rd party firewall anyway and use the
built in one.
