Networking Issues between Windows ME and Vista

Posted: 04-05-2007, 09:50 AM
I have setup a home network and I am having a problem. I can see each machine
on the other but can't access the files. I can Ping both and get a response
back. I have Mcafee Internet Security Suite on the Vista machine and Norton
on the ME Machine. I can access the internet from both machines. I get the
following message from the vista machine: "pcname" is not set up to establish
a connection on port "File and printer sharing (SMB)" with this computer. Any
help would be appreciated

Thank you in advance

I think you have just described and identified a big part of your problem.

Max,

are you saying that McAfee is stopping the return traffic and not SMB?

Yes....more than one person has reported success with removing McAfee and/or
Norton. If Norton is just the AV app, turn off Internet Worm Protection.
Alternative AV apps that have a higher success rate(AVast, AVG, and
Kaspersky).

I had the same problem but between two Vista machines. I found an answer ...
I hope it works for you.

I needed to enable file sharing in the network properties: In Vista it's:
Network and Sharing Center/Status/Properties (check File and Printer Sharing
for Microsoft Networks).

The following is the article I found via Google that is directed at XP:

Good luck
