Network security

Hi everyone,
If I set up a home network with the host connected to the broadband, will the client LAN machine be protected by my firewall and antivirus or will it require its own.

all machines on the network need antivirus

Firewall depends on how you are connected if it is 2 pcs linked by crossover a firewall on the host machine is required (firewall on the client optional)

If you have a router then chances are it will have a hardware firewall protecting the network.

Some people however like to have a software firewall on machines behind the router to monitor outgoing traffic

hope this is of some help
