    I have two wireless laptops and a wired desktop with one laptop running win
    XP Pro and another win XP Home, the desktop also has XP Home . I understand
    that the firewall on all of the PCs has to be off for this to work and it
    does work with it off. I was wondering if there is any way for it to work
    with the firewalls on? I have Norton Internet Security Suite on all of the
    computers.

    You should not run without a firewall. You simply need to configure NIS
    to see your lan as trusted. Go NIS's Help files for configuration
    details.
