    SaaS Firewall Configuration Question

      I have a dozen or so PCs, all running Windows 7, physically collocated and connected on the same LAN. I am running McAfee SaaS on all of them. Once I installed SaaS, they can no longer "see" each other as resources through Windows networking, although all PCs appear if I select "see full map". I cannot establish a remote desktop connection from any of these PCs to any of the others, and need to be able to do so. How do I configure SaaS to allow these capabilities within the LAN?

          I am having the exact issue as well.  I am sure it's a setting I am over looking, but there is nothing obvious in the Policies menu to allow machines on a network to communicate.


          I am still researching and will researching and will follow up once I find something.
