Avast Internet Security and Simple Workgroup network
« on: July 30, 2018, 06:19:03 PM »
I have a network set up with 2 laptops and 1 desktop and 2 printers connected.  All computers are running Windows 7 Professional. Everything is working great, but one of the laptops can not be accessed even though it shows up on the network.  When I turn Avast Internet Security Shield Control off for 10 minutes, I can access that laptop with no problems.  Obviously I have something configured incorrectly.  Any help would be appreciated.

please try to change the firewall settings in Internet Security to Private mode instead of Public mode
