I have a Kerio 2.1 Personal Firewall that works great for the Internet but it is blocking a local LAN connecting a Win2K desktop and a Win7 starter Netbook. Win2K has the Kerio and Win 7 has its own firewall. I read through the instructions but they give no indication how to poke a hole through the firewall to let Win2K see Win 7. If anyone knows how, please advise.
If both boxes are connected to the Internet, the Kerio firewall blocks the LAN communications. When I shut Kerio down I can communicate on the LAN but there is one glitch.
Shares were setup.
On Win7 the share is \\Box\share - it was labeled by Win 7 as Share (\\Box) (Y:) and it showed X Share1 (\\Box1) (Z:). The X was in red showing that there was something wrong there - related to Win2K - Box1. On the Win 7 I could see the Win 7 and Win2K shares on Box1 and access both of them.
For the Win2K desktop the share is \\Box1\share1 On it, I could see both folders - Box1 was already on Win2K but the Box folder (from Win 7) was there and not accessible. The same 2 admins are listed on both boxes so I can't see why either would be denied admission on Box.
Help would be appreciated.
