setting up shares

By jbeaucaire ·
I am running WIN2k with Norton system works & internet security. I cannot get my computer to share it's c or d drive with the other computers on the WAN. I have set up sharing on the computer and it was sharing before I install the Norton stuff.
Any help would be great.

Thanks

setting up shares

I would say the Norton products must have a firewall or something similar built in. This is blocking all requests coming into your machine in an effort to try and protect you. I would investigate that software a little more and you will probably find what I'm talking about, and maybe even a way around it!

Norton Firewall allows you to configure access for particular protocol traffic on a home network. There is a wizard that will allow you to step through this configuration. Heres how to access it:

To automatically configure the Home Network Wizard(Click the triangle):

1. Open the NIS main program window.
2. Click Personal Firewall.
3. Click the Internet Zone Control subcategory.
4. Click the Trusted tab.
5. Click the Wizard button.

I did what you said, (it was a little different but I got to the wizard button). It (the wizard) found I have non routeable ip addresses (that is what I am assuming as it did not find any network adapters that are configured to connect to a network.
So, I manually put in the range of ip addresses of 192.168.0.1 thru 192.168.0.255. This still did not help.

Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks for your help so far!
