Security and Firewall and Network

  DJ Techz 18:56 04 May 2009

I have a wireless network that my laptop is connected to. I then have my xbox 360 connected to my laptop (through ethernet) and my wireless and ethernet connections (on my laptop) are bridged. On my PC Tools Intenenet Security, I have to have my Wireless card on the 'Allow All Traffic' to be able to go onto xbox live.

Does this then mean that my laptop(connected wirelessly to my wireless network) is not protected by firewall????


Thanks in advance

Every "computer" in your network must have its own firewall protection.

Where Internet Connection Sharing is used, 'client' computers don't inherit protection from the 'host' computer.
