View Full Version : ICS : client PC protection needed also ?



13-12-2001, 10:46 AM
I use ICS on my modest LAN (W98 SE platform). ZoneAlarm firewall and Norton AntiVirus are installed and operating on the host PC. Do I need to have ZoneAlarm on the client PC as well, or is ZA on the host PC sufficient protection for the LAN ?
Any advice appreciated.

the fiewall on the host dosn't do a lot for the cleint pc so put zonealarm on the cleint pc as well, even if its the free version.

The basic Zone Alarm personal (freebie) package doesn't offer any extra protection, but you can buy the Pro package which has built-in ICS features.
