Problems with Windows File & Printer Sharing?

There might be different problems for other people, but if you have Norton Internet Security (NIS) you should definitely try this (I have NIS 2007):

1. Open NIS.

2. Open your firewall settings box.

3. Select ‘Advanced Settings’ then press ‘Configure’.

4. Scroll down to the ‘Block Windows File Sharing’ rule and click ‘Modify’

5. These are the settings and the tabs under which the settings reside:

Tab: Action —> Allow

Tab: Connections —> to and from

Tab: Computers —> Any computer

Tab: Communications —> Any type
