Problem after installation on windows 7

Hi everybody.

 

When I install PSB 9.30 on PC with windows 7, happen something strange: before installation \\PC-name find and open correctly "the connection".

After installation \\PC-name not function but if I use \\PC-IP yes.

There is something in "name resolution" only with 7 that not function.

 

So if I put in file host name and IP of PC and server all is ok.. but I want to understand why this happen.

 

Thank

 

Mirko

Re: Problem after installation on windows 7

Hello,

 

For a well-working LAN, F-Secure IS firewall needs to allow at least the following:

 

bi-directional ICMP,

plus, in the incoming direction:

Wins1 (network browsing)

Wins2 (file and printer sharing)

SMB over TCP and SMB over UDP (about the same as WINS items, but more modern)

Do you mean that your

PSB - Win7 PC does not resolve other PCs or other PCs do not resolve your PSB-Win7 workstation?

 

What about rest of the sharing? (file sharing/printer sharing) Does it work?

Thanks for replay!!

 

My PSB-Win7 PC not resolve the name of other PC (\\Server or \\NamePc NO GOOD but \\192.168.0.100 GOOD)

 

All return OK, if I turn off firewall.

 

Thanks
