I have just set up a home network. I am having trouble sharing files and printers while my firewall (sygate personal firewall free) is on. I have tested it without the firewall on and it works. So how can I configure the ip's on my network with sygate pf. I only want to allow home network IP's not global sharing.
I have googled it but only find how to allow file and printer sharing altogether no just for network IP's.

Thank you.

Sygate has a setting in the options to allow traffic in the Network Neighborhood - have you set that to function?

Also, have you "mirrored" accounts on each PC? By default, the systems use the Guest account for the permissions when connecting in a Workgroup. So, if the files are in a place that the Guest account can't access - you'll get an "Access Denied" message.

The solution is to make identical accounts on each computer (don't rename them - that doesn't work) with identical passwords. This'll allow the computers to use the credentials from the accounts rather than the credentials from the Guest account for access.

After that, it's just a matter of sorting out the rest of the security, permissions, and accesses.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
