    Default ZA free preventing accessing other PCs on wireless network

    I have 2 PCs running XP and both are on the same wireless network. Both can connect successfully to the internet via the wlan and a router. But, although they can "find" each other when I search for the PC name, I cannot access files on the other PC or the printer through the wireless network.

    On both PCs sharing is permitted for both the printer and certain folders. Apparently ZA is blocking the connection. What setting do I need to do to permit file and printer sharing on a wireless network when ZA free is active?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Try it with the other computer's IP added as Trusted in the Zones (along with the router's IP).

    Of course that was it. I had had to re-install ZA on one of the PCs and forgot to do that.

    Thanks Oldsod!
