Connecting to PCs in my onecare circle RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing Microsoft Live OneCare and added my three PCs to the circle, I was unable to connect to PCs within the circle from another PC in the circle. My storage and printer are connected to one PC, so this means I cannot print from the other two PCs and certainly cannont backup the other two PCs that are in a WLAN.

  • Open OneCare on each of the computers.

    Click Change Settings

    On the firewall tab, click configure firewall

    If the network is shown as Public, click Change Location to change it to "Home or Work."

    Click the Advanced Settings button

    Click Network connections tab.

    If there are multiple active connections shown, you may need to disable them in your Windows network connections settings. (Network and Sharing Center, manage connections, in Vista; Right click My Network Places and select Properties on the Start menu in XP)

    On the Ports and Protocols tab, add a check mark next to File and Printer Sharing - for subnet and Internet if the first setting alone (after all of the above are verified) does not allow Sharing to work.

    If all of the above fail, please contact support.
