First may I say hi as a newbie to this forum. Hi.
Well the problem I seem to have is that I got two pc`s on a home network running through a Netgear fast Ethernet Switch. Both running XP Pro service pack2 . I can get both machines to share files and printer, and can connect and disconnect from the internet with both machines.
The problem being is that the second pc will not display a web page although its connected to the internet, if I switch off Zone Alarm on the main pc then its ok. So I am wondering is it something that I need to configure with the second pc in explorer or not? I get no warnings or anything from Zone Alarm when the second machine connects to the internet via the Lan. Yep Im stuck.
Is the second PC configured thru the first PC for internet access? If so ZA may be detecting it and blocking it a unauthorized access. In ZA you have a setting that allows programs to access the internet. See if the second computer shows up there, and if it does allow premission.
