Windows 7: Network access

07 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Network access

Running one system with Window 7 Ultimate 64 bit, a desktop system with XP Home and a Netbook with XP Home. The network uses a workgroup. The Windows 7 system can access the other two systems without problem. The desktop can access the other two systems without problem. The Netbook can access the desktop without problem but has a problem with the Windows 7 system. When I try to access the Windows 7 system from the Netbook, I am asked for a user name and password. I enter them and then it takes about 25 seconds to access the Windows 7 system. Once there, accessing a share is immediate but backing out takes another 25 seconds. This scenario is repeated for each share access. How do I eliminate having to login for one but mainly how do I eliminate the 25 sec delay?

Thanks for any help or advice.


25 second delay problem solved by disabling Norton Smart Firewall in Norton Security Suite on the Windows 7 system. Still have to logon to the Windows 7 system from the Netbook once per restart. I'm looking into Inbound Rules for File and Printer sharing in the Windows 7 system Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. Wish me luck!!


Problem solved by giving "full trust" to all systems on the network in Norton Security suite.
