Symantec Endpoint Protection firewall interfering with file sharing
I just set up my Windows XP laptop to allow file sharing so that I could easily copy files to my MacBook Pro. However, Symantec Endpoint Protection always blocks access attempts from the other computer.

I added my MacBook Pro's IP and MAC addresses to the whitelist, but it didn't help. I also set the firewall to allow all incoming traffic, but this works only some of the time. The only way I could reliably access the shared files is to disable Networ Threat Protection, which I don't want to do.

Below are my firewall settings:

Anyone know what I should change?
