Hopefully someone can assist me with this. I've a laptop, I've a copy of ZoneAlarm version:9.2.057.000 Free installed. I'm away from home using my laptop and have been using a 3G USB Modem, however, I've been advised I can use the company network, so promptly scanned for various networks and what do you know 15 of them showed up!
Zone Alarm Free immediately popped up announcing zone alarm has found a new network it then provided an ip address ie: 126.96.36.199/255.255.255.0 then showed me a drop-down saying 'Internet Zone' Apply\Cancel?
Can someone tell me or point me to somewhere that tells me: What the 'internet zone' is? If I say 'yes' and Zone Alarm enters the ip address into the 'Internet Zone' what consequences will there be for me, can whoever see my files on my computer like I can browse machines on my network at home?
obviously, if I choose the wrong network I'm concerned that someone could dump whatever they like on my laptop and so would appreciate knowing exactly what I'm risking if I join these networks?
Thank you for your time.
