I have 2 computers in my home network connected via a simple LAN. The primary computer connects to the internet (broadband) via a modem. I've shared this internet connection so that the secondary computer also connects to the net through this shared connection. No router/switch involved. Zone Alarm is installed on the primary computer.
Now when I try to connect to the net from the second PC I'm unable to connect to any site. (file sharing is working properly both ways) Then when I shutdown the ZoneAlarm suite on the primary computer, I was able to connect to the net from the 2nd PC.
In my ZA suite, in Firewall->Zones, this network is in the Trusted Zone, and I have even added the 2nd PC's IP address individually into the Trusted Zone. Yet, when ZA is running, the 2nd PC cannot connect.
Please could you tell me if there is some other configuration I need to check?
