??? So you want to know how to disable the firewall in win?

Or am I missing something? Just shut it off. If it's Norton's firewall you can disable it, if it's ZoneAlarm, same deal. FYI, if this is on the win box, you should have posted it in the General section, not Linux - General as this forum is for Linux specific questions, not computers in General. If it's not a win question, could you please let us know what you are talkin about?

Cool
