Re: Get windows talking
I did that and it didnt work, but now i am happily sharing printers and files with my dad. For any other people who were wondering how to do this i will tell you all.
When you know that all the machines, wired or wireless are working on the internet, if you are sharing this, its simple. Go to Control Panel and click on system. The the tabs at the top of this window, one of them will say computer name. You have to click the change button to all the computers on the network and change it to the name of your network. Then restart all the computers, and there you have it. You will have to install the printer drivers on both machines if you are sharing these.To share a file or folder, right click, then click properties and go to sharing, then you just check the options you want. Now the last step, let the firewall know this, in mcafee just type all the ips in to the allowed ip box, and make sure lan and network is ticked on the windows firewall exception tab. Where i got stuck, make sure you untick the second tab down on the windows firewall page, under the firewall on.
Hope this helps you all,
