Zone Labs Firewall & Internet connection sharing

Greetings,
I have set up a Zone Labs firewall and tested it with good results.
However I am now unable to share my Internet connection through my network. I discovered that my other computers had the option to automatically select an IP address checked and so I have set this to a specific IP address - the same as the host computer but the last digit being one higher then my main computer and another higher on a third computer and with the subnet mask set to the same figure throughout. Then I set the IP addresses under "Advanced, Other computers" in Zone Alarm and checked them.
But no joy. OK so I am forgetting something obvious - can you help?
Cheers,
Joel.

Hi,

Zone Alarm Freebie doesn't work with ICS.

Always read the label :-)

I don't know what people think of tiny firewall these days, it used to be quite good... Really though you should just install Linux!

Thanks Ian,
In fact it will work if I lower the Internet security setting to "Medium" but this is hardly satisfactory...
Do you have the "Pro" version? Can you confirm that it allows ICS with the Internet security setting on "High"?
Cheers.
