    Default ZASS - Firewall Advanced Setting?

    Hi,
    Bit of confusion on my part. Basic setup as follows:
    XP Home SP3ZASS 8.0.059Main system box connected via cat 5 cable to Netgear DG834v4 wireless ADSL2+ routerLaptop running Vista with Microsoft firewall and connected to
    router via wireless


    As both systems are connected to the internet via the router, I have disabled Windows' built-in
    Internet Connection Sharing feature.
    Now for my question. On
    my main system box, which of the 3 options in ZASS' advanced firewall setting should I select - "This computer is not on an ICS/NAT
    network",

    "This computer is a client of an ICS/NAT gateway running ZoneAlarm Security Suite" or "This computer is an ICS/NAT gateway"?
    Obviously the 3rd option doesn't apply in my case but the somewhat ambiguous wording in option 2
    causes me confusion. Do they mean the client computer is running ZASS or
    that another computer acting as an ICS/NAT gateway is running ZASS?
    Rightly or wrongly, I've assumed the former i.e. my computer is running ZASS and is a client of my router which is acting as the ICS/NAT gateway.
    Regards

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

    Hi!if you see the online guide it will explain you that this settings is only valid if you are sharing the internet connection viawindows ICS, this option willallows networked computer to share a single line present in one of the computers.Since you are using a router to connect to internet this option simply does not apply to you and the correct settings will be "This computer is not an ICS/NAT network" i.e. your computer does NOT give internet connection to other computer connected to the same LAN.Cheers,Fax
