I've added a wireless router and am in the process of configuring ZA. One thing I'm not clear on is this:
I know that my home computer isn't going anywhere so adding an IP range of 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 is probably ok. My laptop is a different issue because I wonder around and the likely hood of landing on a 192.168 network is plausible. So I have 2 questions:
1) If I tell ZA on my desktop computer to trust 192.168.1.1 and that IP address is my Linksys Router Gateway, aren't I opening up my computer to everything that comes across the internet? It all comes from the gateway so I can't just blindly trust that ip?
2) If I want to give my Laptop access to another computer on my home network (eg File/Printer Sharing) but I'm running DHCP and I don't want to gamble on being at some starbucks or something and finding that IP 192.168.1.101 belongs to some hacker sitting next to me... how can I do this?
Thanks for any info.
