A friend of mine has a desktop computer with WinXPpro and NortonThe best thing I did was to take the advice of people in this group and uninstall Norton Internet Security from my computer. A host of problems went away.
Protection Center with antivirus and some firewall built in. Recently
he bought a laptop with VistaPremium installed on it and now he would
like to use a printer which is connected to the desktop computer. The
connection between both computers goes through a wifi modem/router.
The desktop is wired to the router and the laptop uses wifi. I can see
the laptop in the View Workgroup Computers but I cannot see the
desktop machine from the laptop so I can't get to the printer. From
the laptop's Network window I can only see the icon of the laptop and
when I get to Network and Sharing Center I can only see the laptop
connected to the router and further to the Internet and that's it. My
guess is the inbound firewall from Norton product is not allowing the
connection. But there is no way or at least I don't know of any to
change its settings. My friend doesn't want to have the access from
the desktop computer to the laptop but only the other way round just
to get to the printer.
Does anyone know what's the solution to this problem?
