Thanks for pointing me in the right direction - now just have to figure out what to turn back on and still allow access...
This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.
The Windows Firewall needs to be disabled with Norton 360 installed so that there are no conflicts. Also, make sure that there are no other third-party firewall's or anti virus applications running as well.
To correctly configure sharing in Norton 360 version 2, you will first need to make sure that you have created the shares correctly in Windows. Since you are experiencing problems, I would suggest that you remove the shares and re-create them.
The next step is to add the computers in your network to the "Trusted" list in the Norton 360 version 2 Firewall settings by following the steps below.
1. Make note of the IP
addresses of the computers on your network that you are sharing.
2. Open Norton 360 version 2 and click on the "Settings" link.
3. Click on "Firewall Protection" and then click on the "Network Locations" tab at the top of the window.
4. Select the "Trusted" tab and then select the "Add" button at the bottom of the window and enter the IP
address of the computer that you are sharing. You will need to complete this step for each computer that you are sharing.
5. When you are finished, click on the "Back" and then "Close" buttons.
Let me know if you are successful or if you have any problems.
