Windows 7 Firewall and HomeGroup.
Hi everyone. Right now I'm trying the combo Windows Firewall + MSE. Everything is working fine except one thing. If I activate the outbound protection in the firewall the homegroups feature stops working properly. I can't see my other computer (same configuration on both).
You don't have to be a genius to see that there's some missing outbound rule and that's why the win firewall is blocking this feature.
The question is: Does anyone knows how to configure the Windows Firewall for this feature to work properly ?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, I know. Especially the Windows firewall which is a pain to configure. The problem here is the guys at Microsoft that didn't create the rules as default for using homegroup. How will I possible know how to configure something that I don't even know how it works.
Apart from that, I'm not having any problems with other programs. My main problem is that I don't know which services to create rules for in order to make homegroups work again.
