hello guys. I have a desktop and a laptop PC. The desktop is connected to a wireless router and my laptop is sharing my internet connection via the router. I can surf the internet in both desktop and laptop. However, when I try file and print sharing, my laptop cannot find my desktop. I've tried disabling AV firewall and right on, I can print and share file. But do I have to disable the firewall everytime I need to connect to my desktop?

In one of the post, I've read that I can set my AV to trust my laptop, so I don't have to disable firewall. but how do i do that?

thanks a bunch.

PS. I'm using McAfee Virus Scan Plus 2009

hello guys. I just figured out how to set McAfee to accept my laptop. I opened McAfee Security Center. Clicked Report Logs. View logs. clicked the IP address of my laptop. then clicked Trust this.
And now, my laptop is happily connecting to my desktop and vice versa.
