Firewall & AV on Win2k Network

  Heefie 14:21 28 May 2004

I assume this will be a quick & easy question ... I hope so anyway !!

I have 2 PCs networked together through a hub; PC1 has Broadband access using AVG anti-virus and ZoneAlarm free Firewall ... if I now access the Internet from PC2 via the Broadband connection on PC1, do I need the AntiVirus Software and/or Firewall set up on PC2 or is it automatically protected ?!?

Thanks in advance ...

I thought you only needed the fire wall between PC and internet therefore firewall on pc1 good enough. However have AV on both.

Fruit Bat, that's exactly what I'd have thought, but the question has only elicited 2 replies in a week, so I assume that most people don't know any better than we do ;-) !!!!!
