Using a Firewall and Windows XP on a local Network

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Earthlink News, May 30, 2004.

  1. 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.

    Workstation or server

    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.

  4. 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.
