Zone Alarm Pro and Networking

  goll_y 14:50 28 Nov 2004

I've been trying for a while to allow my client computer to access the internet through the host computer.

I have Zone Alarm Pro on both computers and cannot seem to set this up. Can someone tell me how to do this from finding the IP addresses and what to type in where to allow this. It is really annoying (and not very wise) to disable Zone Alarm Pro on the host just so the client can access the internet.

I have XP Home on both and connecting via wired ethernet.

uninstall and set up all working properly, install Zonealarm again, it will tell you it find network and ask you if you trust it etc etc

There must be an easier way!!

quit Zonealram pro on both PCs. Unplug network cable. Start ZA again and then connect cable to see if ZA come with with anything.

Is it set up as a network. If so go to the Firewall tab, add an entry of type subnet and enter the details there for a 'trusted' zone.

Do I need to do that on the client or host computer?

If Zone Alarm is operating on both then I would expect both to require the entry to be made.

Did this sort Zone Alarm for your network?

To add a network to the Trusted Zone:

Select Firewall|Zones.

In the Zone column, click the row containing the network, then select Trusted from the shortcut menu.

Click Apply.

Try this

on the Main pc (the one with the internet connection)

open zone alarm

click Firewall (left hand side)

click advanced (bottom right)

in the Internet Connection Sharing section,

select This computer is an ICS/NAT gateway

close the zone alarm window, restart windows and try connecting via the client pc again, it should now work ok

good luck
