Does My Second Networked PC Need a Firewall?

  Offline 13:23 22 Feb 2003

I have Windows XP running on both my networked Pc's. The one I connectect to the internet with via ADSL has Zone Alarm Pro on. The other Pc connects to the net through the main one, no problems, my question is: Do I need a firewall such as Zone Alarm on the second PC?

Yes, but only so that you receive a notification of any 'unauthorised' communication attempts from any program / service / trojan / spyware etc on the 2nd PC to a remote destination.
