Windows Home Server Firewall Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
        I am having an issue with windows home server power pack 3 & would like to know where I can find support for the following problem.
    If, using a client pc, I copy a file (1.83Gb) from a shared folder on server to the client pc's desktop, the copy will fail and present the error "network name is no longer available" This will happen regardless of the clients OS - Windows 7 or Xp gives the same outcome.
    If I remote desktop to server & turn off windows firewall on server then close remote desktop and try to copy the same file from server shared folder to client pc's desktop again, it will work fine everytime.
    Any technical support on this server firewall problem would be extremely appreciated as I have tried everything that I can think of, including complete re-installation.
    Thanks in anticipation,
    Jason Tucker
