How to enable file and printer sharing [resolved]

I’m trialling Comodo and having installed it, it won’t allow me to connect to any other machine on the network. The other machines are visible and the ip addresses are defined in the zone configuration. When I try to connect, it says ‘network path not found’.

Anyone tell me what I need to switch on to access other machines on the network?

have you done the network setup wizard in windows?
if so… have you turned off the windows firewall which automatically is set to on

I figured it out… I had to put a rule in to allow traffic across my local network for specific ports 137,138,139 and 445. Now seems to be working, however I would have thought this would be an installation option. I pity those with no tech knowledge trying to figure that out…!
