What do i need to put in the trusted zone for
internet connection sharing,i have 3 things showing:

Realtek RTL 8139 Fast Ethernet NIC
adaptor subnet (internet)

WAN(PPP/SLIP) adaptor subnet(internet)

Loop Back adaptor IP Address (trusted)

what i wont to know is which of these need to be in the trusted zone and what in the internet zones,my son will play hell if he cant get on line and play games over a LAN,lol.

Connecting Via Broad band anh have pc set up as client so other pc can share its connection,and i wont to be able to share files as well.

Ok i can acsess files both from my pc to the other and from the other to mine but the other pc cant open webpages,keeps getting page cannot be displayed errors dispit the fact that both LAN & BB connection icons are showing in the task bar as working ok.

I give up with this program its utter rubbish for networks,on a stand alone pc it great but the network support for it is poor in the least,i unuinstalled it.

Are you using Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect the two computers? ZA (free) does not fully support ICS. ZA Pro does.

There is a workaround for ZA (Free). It involves lowering one of the security level from High to Med.

see my last post, perhaps I'll try another firewall Sygate or Kerio?

I have downloaded and installed Sygate,this worked first time all i had to do was tick one box and it did the rest for me,way better than ZA.Highly recommend it.

Thanks for that but i think lowering the security lvl rather defeats the point of having a firewall,if you cant set it at what you wont,and rather to what ZA wants you to set it at so it works.I much rather have sygate now.Thx
