Has anyon erun into a problem with the new 2010 version's firewall not letting remote pc connect to server computer?

Has anyone had this problem.  My pc guy set the firewall to allow access for this program and still no luck.  I would hate to disconnect the firewall but at this point I will need to do that in order for others to communicate with my pc.

Hi,

What is the type of Operating system you have ? (Windows xp/Windows Vista)

What is the type of internet connection you are having ? (DSL/Dial-up/Cable/Wireless/Satellite)

check the date and time ?

Open mcafee check whether it says Am I protected?YES (OR) Your Computer is Secure ?

If it says Am I protected?YES,  click about check the versions and paste it here

If it says Your Computer is Secure, on the top click navigation and then click on about and paste the versions

Get back to us with the above details.

Hi,

My operating system is windows xp on the server and my laptop.  Although on the network there are other pc's vista and windows 7.

I have DSL connection to the internet.

On the server the security version is 10.0, virus protection version 14.0, firewall version 11.0, and shredder version 3.0.  On the laptop I have an older version of McAfee.

Thanks.
