Greetings\n\nI have just set up a network between my desktop PC and a laptop but when\nZone Alarm (free version) is running on the PC, I can't "see" the laptop. As\nsoon as I disable Zone Alarm, there is the laptop and I can move stuff\nto-and-fro. Can anyone advise please on whether I can tell Zone Alarm to\naccept the signal from the laptop - and if so, how? The laptop is just using\nXPs own firewall at present.\n\nI'm using a Linksys modem/router (WAG54G). This is hardwired to an ethernet\ncard on the PC. The laptop has a Linksys wireless adapter card.\n\nThis has been setup to test if the network will work, in readiness for going\nbroadband (now ordered).\n\nI know the router has built in firewall stuff, but I've seen in newsgroups\nthat it's advisable to have a software one as well.\n\nAll help appreciated.
