Hello, first post, so please bear with me. I have just set up a peer-to-peer network through Cat-5 cables. The network is between a Windows XP machine and a Windows 98 machine. My DSL modem runs through the XP machine. I can file share and printer share OK.
The XP machine runs AOL9 fine. The Windows 98 machine was running AOL7 through a dial up modem, but I have now upgraded that to AOL9.
The Windows 98 machine cannot now log in to AOL with the message that it is being prevented from doing so by a Norton Firewall.
Although I use Norton Antivirus 2004 on the Windows XP machine, I have the Microsoft Windows firewall configured. I have Norton System Works 2003 on the Windows 98 machine, but I cannot find any trace of any firewall software on it.
The good people of AOL suggested I remove the Norton software from my Windows 98 machine, but when I ControlPanel-Add/Remove Programs, and try to Remove it, it thinks I'm trying to install it. I don't really want to do a dirty delete on it because it strikes me as a rather insiduous bit of software in the file structure and register stakes.
Now AOL have suggested I talk to Norton.
Has anybody got any suggestions?
