Using built in Firewall

By courtney ·
When I use the built in firewall and don't add any incoming ports (just keep it default) I cannot get to it's shres from other computers. What do I need to do or what ports should I open?

sh??, That means your firewall is working as it should. You need a firewall that accepts passwords
for access.

Sorry I misspelled some words in the last one. What I am saying is that I am using the WIN XP built in firewall and I want other computers on the LAN to still get to that PC's shares, but once the built in Win XP Pro firewall is on I cannot. What doI do to let the shares still availbe.

I would be checking your sharing security settings as I have an XP Pro network with all machines running the built in firewall and have had no problem with the shares once I set up an account on each machine for each user with the passwords tha sameas the other machines and set the shares security to allow them access.
