Using two Windows XP machines along with a router for connecting both to the
Internet results in the following error when the Firewall is enabled:

\\machine1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
Network resource.

Any ideas?
thanks

I had the same problem. Check your firewall settings. In Zone Alarm it's
the Zones tab of the Firewall window. Set the router for Internet and the
other computers for trusted.

You can use IPsec that far out classes any PFW solution when implemented
behind a NAT router. The AnalogX Secpol file will give instant protection
for any NT based O/S such a Win 2K, XP, and 2K3 and will not interfere.
And when implemented, it will provide protection on the LAN.

IPsec can stop inbound or outbound by port, protocol, and IP and is a
solid solution.

If you have not *harden* the XP O/S, then you should look into it a
little bit, because the protection starts with the O/S and everything
else is secondary to it.

Can you ping the other machines? Start ----> run -----> cmd (2000/xp) or
command (9x): at the prompt type: ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (the LAN IP address
of the remote machine). Either you will recieve 4 responses or 4 time out
errors.
