I am trying to setup a homegroup between two Windows 7 computers, and apparently my Eset Security Service is blocking the traffic. When I disable the firewall on both computers, the homegroup works fine. Is there a known fix/workaround for it?
Go to Setup -> Personal Firewall -> Change the protection mode of your computer in the network -> click it -> Choose Allow Sharing
Also check Setup -> Personal Firewall -> Advanced personal firewall setup -> IDS and advanced options -> check Allow file and printer sharing in the Trusted zone
If you are using interactive filtering mode check the rules that you have set in accordance to network traffic
Hope this helps!
