In order to use MSG DM across a home network, I have had to disable the
XP Pro firewall. When it is enabled, the other computers on the network
cannot see the main (processing) computer. Does anyone know whether the
MS firewall can be taught that the internal network is OK? I have not
found any reference to this in MS help files.

Hi Lawrence,

Do you mean not at all or it takes a long time for the network to
establish the computers in the workgroups and to begin to access the

I can use a laptop with Windows XP home edition to access the main
computer (also XP home)via a 11mHz Wireless router/ modem network, both
are firewalled and files come across OK. But it can take several minutes
for the computers to begin to recognise the existence of each other.

Exactly the same here James. I have 2 computers on a simple (cross over)
network and either I wait a few minutes or 'force' recognition on start up.
I consider myself reasonably competent with computers but with one major
exception.....networks ! God bless the XP Network Wizard.
