    Hi All,
    I cannot connect to computers on my network. i think it has something to do with the firewall because when i turn it off i can connect. is there a port i need to open?

    thank you

    Hi brad livesay, Welcome to WindowsBBS. :) We need more info. What OS are you using? Are all the comps the same? Your System Details would help as well.
