Hello all, I`ve networked my laptop and my desktop with a firewire connection and I can get everything to work as it should,i.e. file sharing, internet connection sharing. However, since installing Zone alarm, my laptop (the client pc) can`t access the internet. Z.A. is recognising my network (i.e. my laptop and desktop)and in theory allowing both pc`s access to the internet, but I can`t get on line with the laptop. If I switch off Z.A. then everything works fine. I have been thru every possible combination of settings in Z.A. but to no avail. Is there an expert on Z.A. in the house?? T.I.A. Andy
Been a while since I last had my PC networked, but if I remember right, have a look in the logs in ZA and you should see a denial of access from the other machine. If you right-click there should be a way of making the other PC a trusted zone.
Thanks for your replies. I tried the log check method and I think you have to put in the ip address for each different time that my laptop tries to connect to the internet. As for the other method, how do I find out my laptops ip address? Andy
