    Default 2 PCs on my home network, unable to connect to the internet from the 2nd

    Hi,
    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?
    Thanks.
    (ZA Suite version: 7.0.337.000Both PCs: Windows XP)



    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!
    Thanks a lot for that! It was just one additional change I had to make regarding the ICS/NAT gateway and it worked.
    Thanks for the quick and accurate solution! I tried to avoid repeating an old query, but after going back 10 pages in the forum I couldn't find anything so created a new post.
    Thank you very much once again
