PC running XP pro and laptop running XP home. NTL BB thru Linksys router / switcher, 4 port. We get BB fine, sharing fine ! how can I set up Zone alarm ? The moment I enable it sharing no longer works. the internet side is OK but we can not see each others files, printer etc. Can anyone help to overcome this ? be very grateful for advice --- please.
When I got my router, it had a firewall in it, but I left ZoneAlarm in to see if it picked up anything that ZoneAlarm missed. It didn't! So, I've ditched ZoneAlarm.
In ZoneAlarm you can set a 'range' of IP addresses in a 'from/to' zone (as I found out far too late). Include the full range of the last segment of address that your two puters are assigning from 0 - 255. Not 100% sure how I did that, and with ZoneAlarm gone, I can't help too much there. I think it was in the 'trusted zone' bit.
Many thanks for the trouble taken. I think ` Chris the Ancient `, pressed the right button, I put the Gateway address(router) in ZA trusted zone and the `door opened `. I simply! prefer ZA because I appear to be in more control of content I allow or not. I had to type this twice as when I ticked resolved it promptly disappeared, ah well! I am happy again :) Den
