How do I set the firewall to allow my PC s to share files

I want to copy files from one PC to another, explorer can see the other PCs but I can't browse to them unless I turn the firewall off - seems there must be a setting.

 

F-Secure should introduce some "settings for normal people" buttons like "allow file and print sharing in my home" rather than expecting me to know how to add rules and IP ranges (whatever they are)...

 

Thanks - R

Hi,

 

the article that you are referring to seems to be empty currently:

I also would like to change the firewall to an adequate setting for home use. Is it planned (like many other firewalls offer) that the setting can be modified on a per network adapter-basis? I tried switching the f-secure firewall off and using the windows firewall, but then messages that the computer isnt safe anymore keep popping up, and that does not make non-power-users happy.

 

Thanks,

Shouldn't the firewall be set automatically once AV has been installed along with it?

Sometimes it do set automatically and sometimes you need to configure it manually
