    Norton 360 Firewall (XP SP3)

    I have two PCs networked. One is running SP2, the other SP3. My printer is connected to the SP2 machine. The SP3 machine has Norton 360 and I cannot print unless I turn off the N360 firewall. Also Windows Explorer on the SP2 machine cannot access the files on the SP3 machine unless the firewall is turned off as well. Although trurning off the firewall temporarily solves these problems it is a hassle and presumably leaves me exposed while I am doing it. Any ideas?

    There should be some setting in the Norton firewall to enter you IP address of the other machine, so it can access the printer and shared files.

    When is the error message that you are getting?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    How do I find the IP address of my machines?

    If I try to print from the SP3 machine (to the printer on the SP2 machine) MSWord's error message says "Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup." If I use Windows Explorer on the SP2 machine to access files on the SP3 machine the error message says "An error occurred while reconnecting Z: to tldapc. Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. The connection has not been restored." And under Network Drives in My Computer it shows c on 'tldap' (Z as Disconnected Network Drive.

    > How do I find the IP address of my machines?

    The easiest way is to type <code>IPCONFIG</code> to a command prompt.
