How to enable networking in EndPoint


1. In the Symantec Endpoint Protection, select Change settings in the left pan.

2. Click Microsoft Windows Networking.

3. Make sure you select correct adapter and check Browse files and printers on the network.

You install the Symantec Endpoint Protection client directly from the autorun CD menu onto the server, and after reboot,

users notice they can no longer access Windows Shares on the server.


This issue occurs since the default firewall policy for unmanaged clients includes a rule to block Windows Networking.

To resolve the issue, launch the Symantec Endpoint Protection client user interface, click "Change Settings", click

"Configure Settings" beside Network Threat Protection. Click the "Microsoft Windows Networking" tab, then check the

box to "Share my files and printers..."

This will allow share access again but it is still important to ensure the Symantec Endpoint Protection client is made

managed. An easy way to achieve this is to install the Symantec Endpoint Protection client again as recommended in

Phase 3 and 4 above. The managed client will happily install over the top of the existing unmanaged client installation.
