    Default Local Intranet File Sharing When Internet Locked

    I have the basic, free version of Zone Alarm (and I love it). I have multiple PC on my home network, all running Zone Alarm. All are set to lock the Internet when in screen saver. I am using an automatic backup program on one of the PCs to backup files from the other PCs using file sharing. However, Zone Alarm will block the sharing of files when the PC with the file to be backed up is in screen saver (i.e. internet locked). It would be great if there were a way to lock the internet but allow access to the intranet (i.e. the trusted zone). Any solutions?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.1

    Just a few things:

    1. <LI>1 NEVER have your internet in the trusted zone</LI><LI>Do you have the trusted Zone set to Medium on ALL computers?</LI><LI>Are all the computers on your network using the same Protocals (exact same)?</LI><LI>Have you allowed File shareing in the network set up?</LI>

    Does anyone know if the Pro version supports this feature (locking internet while keeping local home intranet unlocked)?
