Is there any way to temporarily disable a built-in MS firewall, or configure it to allow certain computers through? I've been setting up LAN games, but I can't host because my best computer (ideally the one that should be hosting) blocks other users from entering my games. How do I disable the firewall (temporarily, I'm not quite dense enough to leave it off) or tell it to accept certain users? I swear I knew how to do this, like, 2 years ago, but for some reason I can't figure it out now.

Thanks for any help!

Yeeeah, that's it. I knew I'd seen it before somewhere. How do I get to that again?
