Hi, i have been trying to connect my powerbook with my dell laptop. I was able to do it but only when i turned the firewall in the pc off. I want to know how can i do it having the firewall on?


Also, when i go to GO on the Finder menu and click on Connect to Server, my PC does not appear there. Do i need to create a network in my pc first? Because i never had to create a new network when i installed my lynksys router. Well thanks for your tome.
