    I have enabled sharing through the options, yet I can only see the other computer on the network but if I double click it, I get an error that it is not accessible.

    If I disable the ESS firewal temporarily, I can see the files fine.

    I am using the automatic mode that I should would take care of thes ethings automatically without user interruption.

    What shall I do?


    I was trying to share files that are located on my x64 Win 7 to access them from my XP Pro lappy.

    Try switching to automatic mode with exceptions and enabling rules allowing UPnP.

    That didn't work, same thing, as soon as I double click on my computer from the other laptop through the network, it gives me a message that it is ain accessible...

    Sorry, I meant disabling the "Block outgoing SSDP (UPnP) requests" rule in the rule editor, not in IDS.

    I got much better support (almost instant) from you than when I emailed ESET, they told me to contact my local dealer! WTF? :S
