I have just networked my pc's together. Both run XP Pro Service Pack 2.The master pc has trend Micro Internet security and the slave has Nortons internet security 2003. the master connects to the internet via a modem which it shares with the phone. However when i turn the slave on it continuously tries to connect to the internet via the master and it is annoying especially if you are on the phone. is there a setting in nortons/ XP that i have missed

You may have a program on the slave that is trying to update itself or even a Trojan or malware trying to connect.
