Is it possible for the firewall to block access to my home network?
Hi. I have 2 Vista and 1 Win 7 laptops plus a 8 year old Win Xp desktop on a home network all connected to a Planet 4 port router.
I installed Linux Mint Katya on the desktop from a live cd. Everything went perfect and after installation finished I clicked on my home folder > network > windows network > workgroup and I could see all the boxes on my network and access them.
After I activated the firewall I clicked on the windows network icon but now I get the following message:
"Unable to mount location. failed to retrieve share list from server."
Now I am using this machine without a firewall and i don't know if that is a good idea.
Any help to resolve this will be appreciated.
