How to enable file and print sharing

17 posts in this topic

I'm sure it's in the help file, and been ask in this forum but I've looked for hours.

I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 on this computer. It is part of my wireless network at home. My other computer has the router and has McAfee installed.

 

Before I installed Kaspersky I was able to send documents to the printer, which is on the other computer. Also I can no longer share files between computers. I'm sure I'm missing a easy setting somewhere.

 

McAfee is about ready to expire on my other computer and I was thinking of getting a three user thing with Kaspersky but to be honest this seems like a very hard program to learn to use

Thanks

Check that your network is set to Local

 

Settings > System Security > Firewall > Settings > Networks > Select right click and set to local

.....................and these pc's are still using McAfee?

 

My main computer, and notebook still have McAfee and file sharing works fine.

My daughters computer the one I just put Kaspersky on is the one that file sharing is not working on. It worked fine until I installed Kaspersky so I'm sure I'm missing a setting somewhere

When I go to networks I can see her computer files, I just can't access them either direction

Thanks

Please post a GSI log following this step by step guide

 

1. Click here to download the GetSystemInfo tool

 

2. Unzip & next run getsysteminfo.exe., choose where you wish to save the text file... the desktop is the easy choice.

 

3. Click here to upload your GetSystemInfo log. (Note: It’s not a requirement to register you can use normal access scrolling down the web page)

 

4. Now copy and paste the link to the log you have just made into your next post in this thread.

The requested log(s) is from every pc you have in the network................of course it will work between McAfee equiped pc's like it would between Kaspersky pc's, but maybe we will notice something in the GSL logs.

I have to go to a school thing tonight but will post the logs

I mis-spoke when I said file sharing wouldn't work in either direction. The computer that has Kasperky I can drag files from both computer to it. I just can't get files out of it

Thanks

I am having a similar issue. I have an old desktop running XP and a new laptop running Vista. I had been running Verizon's security SW on the desktop, and a temporary trial version of something else on the laptop (I don't actually remember what it was). On both, I uninstalled the old security SW and installed Kaspersky 2009. Before I did that, I was able to see the files from either computer on either computer. Now, I can't see the other computer's files. I have set both to Local home network, as was stated in the previous post, but am still unable to access the other computer's files. I mapped a network drive, and could see the folder names, but when I would click on a folder, I get "access denied". When I go to "Network" on the Vista laptop, it is not seeing the other computer, which it used to do automatically before I installed Kaspersky.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

*EDIT* Nevermind. I found that Kaspersky didn't pick up the name of the network and used the name of the router as the network name. Once I renamed it to the name I had given the network, all was good. I'll leave the original question up in case someone else has the same issue.

Mine is the name of the router as well. I don't know that my network has a name. I sure didn't give it one....you mean like Work Group?

Where at in KIS 2009 do you rename your network?

You don't rename it in KIS. KIS changed the name, But it was in the Vista control panel, under Networks, that you change the name.

This didn't work for me, guess I've got something else going on. I changed this to my network name anc still can't access my files, under file sharing

Maybe check to see if the folders are still marked as shared. The fact that you can see the files and move other things between other computers sounds suspiciously like the files are not shared. That said, KIS didn't change that when I loaded it on my computers. But it's worth checking.

My problem was not related to Kaspersky, I guess it just happened when I installed the program.

I did a google search on file sharing xp to vista and there was a regedit to try. I'm not sure what I did other than follow the directions.

Anyway I'm good for now
