Firewall with ICS

Hi,

I have got two PCs linked together using a cross-over cat 5 cable and 2 network cards, both have got Windows XP and Im using ICS, the one which connects to the web(via ADSL) has got Norton Firewall installed on it, my question is:
is the other PC(the one without a firewall) safe?

Cheers

Steve

RE: Firewall with ICS

I seem to recall this question was posed a while ago with the answer that the firewall on the machine connected to the internet protects them all.
Mind you I found it a real pain when the firwall kept asking questions - stopping process dead - and I'm in a different room, Ho Humm!

Hi Steve,

You should be protected when using your Norton Firewall, however I would advise that you consult the Norton documentation that came with your Norton product.

Regards,

Dave
