Configure Norton Smart Firewall to Allow PCs on Windows Home Network
I recently installed Norton Security Suite on my two old hand-me-down PCs, one running Windows 7 Home Premium and the other running XP Professional.
Immediately after the installation of NSS, my Windows Home Network went haywire. I eventually traced the problem to the Norton Smart Firewall, and once I disabled it on both machines, my home network was functional again. (For details see the forum thread: Is Norton Security Suite blocking a PC on my home network?)
But now when I boot up my machines, I receive warnings that my PCs might be at risk.
I'm hoping there's a simple way to configure NSS so that it will recognize and allow my two PCs to talk to each other, while at the same time continuing to block intrusions from the Internet. Is that possible?
If so I'd be grateful if someone could point me to a set of clear and easy to follow instructions.
