allow the entire network so pc's talk to each other

I am trying to get my 2 pc’s to talk to each other.

I have renamed the workgroup on the pc’s so that they both have the same name. I then restarted the pc and firewall alert kept popping up stating that the system is trying to receive a connection from the Internet - what would I like to do? The application is system
remote: - UDP
Port: nbname (137)

I just hit cancel but then found out that I needed to allow it in order for the pc’s to talk to each other so that I can use it as a home network.

How to I now set up the firewall to allow my local network or I wont see anything
I want to allow the entire network and that will be (0 means the whole network)

I tried going to My Network settings and in the Local Area Network section adding the above address as a single ip address and as an IP Address with mask (with the ending /

But I cannot get the pc’s to talk to each other.

How do I actually go about getting Comodo Firewall to allow the entire network???

I read that you should be able to ping the other computer if they are able to talk to each other so I tried that using the ip address found in the dos command ipconfig but all I get is “destination host unreachable” or request timed out depending on which pc I am trying to ping.

Any Assistance Would be GREATLY Appreciated.

First step is to go to My Network Zones (Firewall → Common Tasks) and see if there is a network defined for you local network. You may find something like When it is there give it a name: f.e. My Network.

When there is no network defined create it using the Add button; let’s give it the name My Network and when adding an address use the option An IP address mask and fill in

Now we ar going to use the Stealth Ports Wizard to make your local network trusted. Go to Firewall → Common Tasks → Stealth Ports Wizard → select “Define a new trusted network stealth my ports to Everyone else” → Nest → select "I would like to trust an existing “My Network Zone” → from the drop down menu below choose “My Network” → Finish.

Now you are done and try again.
