Can someone help a newb here please.
I'm an experienced PC user (I've built and installed in excess of 30 PCs) but I do not get networks. I have a basic knowledge , but no understanding of it. I use ZA free and I loove it!. But I've always been puzzled by one bit.
If I enter Firewall Main, I get two options for Internet Zone & Trusted Zone. I thought I understood the basics of this, but .....
Under Internet Zone Security, If I choose High, it says Lets you connect to a Network, but prevents anyone on the network from connecting to you. No Does this refere to a network in the bag bad internet zone, or does it apply to my tiny little Home network (total 3 pcs).
If I select Medium, it says "Use for the Trusted Zone, lets you share printers and
....". Now that really confuses me. What do settings under "Internet Zone" have to do with the Trusted Zone?
Similarly, if I go to Trusted Zone and select High, this says use for Internet Zone. EH!!!!!!!! I assumed that the two ZSones were completely separate. My home Network is in the Trusted Zone, the big bad internet is in the Internet zone!
What I want is to let other users of my home network (only ever myself or my wife) to access printers & resources on my pc, and have max ()sensible) security when on the inrternet. What should I choose as my settings??
PS I did search FAQ's first but found nothing suitable
