I have 3 computers on my network. The main computer is protected by mcafee. The other computers can not access the public folder on this computer. I know that the problem is the mcafee firewall because when i switch the firewall off the other computers have full access to this folder. This problem started with a mcafee upgrade. I want to keep the mcafee firewall, any Ideas how to fix this?

are you subscribing to mcafee - if not then i would replace the security suite

you should be able to setup your IP network range within the Mcafee settings so it allows your local traffic

so have a look at your Default gateway - use ipconfig /all to show that
and then set the range between 1 and 255
so if the default gateway is 192.168.1.1
then set the ip range to
192.168.1.1. to 192.168.1.255
