I have a wireless network that I use at home. It is a basic Linksys wireless modem that I use (if you need the specific model number I can provide it). I have the same applications on my desktop and my laptop computer. The application works fine on the laptop which has the Windows firewall disabled and no other firewall present, but I have problems on my desktop which does have a firewall enabled (McAfee). The applications connect to servers to verify my license is valid before allowing me access.
I right now I use both machines in tandem to do what I need to do but I would like to use one. What should I do to resolve this issue? Would I put myself at a greater risk disabling the McAfee firewall and only using the firewall on the router?
