Norton Internet Security 2003 and Live Mesh Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason, when I have Norton Internet Security 2003turned on, I cannot access my laptop remortly.
    The only way to access my Laptop remortly is by disabling the application (Even turning of the firewall in the application does not work, I have to disable the entire package)

    It works when I use Windows XP Firewall but not with Norton Internet Security 2003.

    Has anybody got this problem.

  • That doesn't surprise me with Norton Internet Security. The new laptop I got at work, besides the wipe and XP install that they did, got NIS installed and it is a big headache for some of the simplest things. Basically, you're going to either need to disable it or configure it to allow the inbound remote desktop connection. I chose to disable it and have enabled the Windows Firewall on that PC.
