Thread: New Network found, do I put it in Internet or Trusted Zone?

    Question New Network found, do I put it in Internet or Trusted Zone?

    ZASS 9.1.008.000
    Vista SP2

    I am hoping to use LogMeIn Hamachi to make a VPN.

    During install of Hamachi, Zone Alarm pops up a New Network Found bdialog and wants to know which zone to put it in. Is Trusted Zone the correct answer to this?

    In general how do you decide if a network or IP address should go in the Trusted or Internet Zone? I have 2 other computers networked to a router, I believe everything my side of the router is trusted, but the router IP itself and anything beyond it is internet zone.

    What difference do these two options actually make?

    My Zones are like this. I am unable to access this computer from the other 2, maybe I have something wrong here?

    Loopback 127.0.0.1 IP Address Trusted
    Router 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 Network Internet
    DHCP Server 192.168.1.1 IP Address Trusted
    DNS Server 216.145.35.35 IP Address Trusted
    Mapped drive DynDNS 216.145.35.99 IP Address Trusted
    DNS Server 216.145.36.36 IP Address Trusted
    Hamachi 5.0.0.0/255.0.0 Network Trusted
    DHCP Server 5.0.0.1 IP Address Trusted

    Thankyou GeorgeV, I will try putting the router in trusted as well.

    Can you say when internet zone should be used please, seems odd if it as option never to be used.

    Generally, the Internet Option is only used by Laptops, when they are connecting to a "Hot-Spot" in a Hotel, Airport or Coffee shop..
