Hi guys;gals: my firewall profile is set to public profile and I would like to know how to set it to private profile under administrative tools using "windows firewall with advanced security". There is "Domain", "Private", and "Public" listed. I have an Acer 5420-5038 laptop with windows Vista home premium 32bit. I created an Ad-Hoc network and is unable to share a file (a word file) with my friend's computer although he was able to connect to my ad-hoc network. This is the first time I am trying this.
