2 computers sharing one internet gateway-security

  Murghalador 13:42 09 Oct 2008


I connect a home network to the internet using a Vodafone mobile connect card. The computer used as the gateway (peer to peer adhoc network)has Norton installed but the other computer doesn't as the membership has run out.
Is the non-gateway computer protected by the Norton software on the gateway computer?

Norton Antivirus or Internet Security?

If it's the latter the firewall will provide a tiny amount of protection, but for all practical purposes the answer is no.
