lan sharing

Can you implement easy to use - checkbox in firewall setting for people who want to share folders / printers in lan?

Creating custom rules is very unconvient and most average joe's wouldn't find how to do that..

    Hi,

     

    printer and filesharing profile is already implemented (in TP38)

     

    A "one-click" feature would require that changing this happens very often. But either you have an office environment then you activate it once or you are a mobile user, then you will most likely NOT share printers and folders to anyone!

     

    If you are a professional user, then head for Client security and then be able to switch these profiles automatically based on your environment.

    Yup,

     

    no I see that there is indeed a profile in firewall to allow file/printer sharing. In one of previous beta that I had it hadn't so thaks for update.

    Anyway for me it's ok, but I still belive that "averange joe" will never go to firewall tab to see if its on or off Smiley Very Happy

    Average user should not dig into networking, if they do not understand the security impact. There is a good reason why even MS firewall denies access to local shares by default!
