I stop using it because of that problem. I eventually fixed it, but I still stop using it, because it would never let my network printer print.

there is a network setting in there somewhere. allow that and remote conections. after that you will have to run the network setup wizard again

there a way to make it work. I usually run a triple boot system (mce, xp sp1 and 64 bit xp), but when I tried to install vista it mess some setting up, so I only have 1 OS now. in the next day or 2, I will install another xp on a partition and run the nvidia firewall, so that I can tell you how to configure it. I have vcom systemsuite firewall on my MCEdition so I can't use it now
