I have a desktop running XP SP2 and a notebook running Vista home Premium and am trying to connect them with an ethernet cable.
I have ZA v7 (free version) running on both machines and have set up trusted zones on both. The trusted zone for both is 192.168.0.1.
This was running ok - both machines could see on another and I could share folders etc.
The I turned both machines off, disconnected the ethernet and rebooted both machines. I have ZA load at startup on the desktop and manually start ZA on the notebook. I then connect the ethernet cable.
The result at this stage is that the desktop can see the notebook ok but the notebook can not see the desktop.
If I shut down ZA on the notebook, the notebook can then see the desktop ok.
Could someone explain to me what is going on please?
Also, if the notebook in connected to the internet via the ethernet cable to the desktop, is it necessary to have ZA running on both machines or will ZA on the desktop protect the notebook too?
