It usually comes down to the protocols being used on the NIC's.
I run with the following:
1) MS File and Print sharing
2) Networking for MS networks
3) Internet protocol TCP/IP
4) Everything else is removed from all NIC's
That worked for me on Win 2K Pro machine and now they are XP Pro machines
wired and wireless NIC(s).
You can also use MS NWLINK which I used before the above solution was
used to allow wire and wireless machines to share resounces.
When I was using MS NWlink, I was using IPsec to protect the NetBios
NWLink is using behind the router on the Windows Networking ports. It's
on the XP O/S too.
The implentation of the AnalogX SecPol rules will give you the protection
on the LAN machines and the Windows networking ports automatically when
implemeted. However, the AnalogX rules will block file dowanload using
the High ports > 1024 so you either diable IPsec or you set the ruuls to
open the prticular High port that is needed, which you can use Active
Ports (free) to determine what ports are being used. You learn how to set
the rules by looking at other AnalogX rules.
I worked with a guy who has two XP pro machines using a wired Linksys
router and the machines would not network even using the above setup on
the NIC's. He implemented MS NWlink and never looked back.
