Internet sharing problem

I have 2 computers networked via a crossover cable using AnalogX Proxy. Both computers are Win98SE using IE6 and are almost identical.

Until yesterday I had no problems accessing the Net from the 2nd (remote) computer via the LAN but now I can't access any webpage or update my virus definitions. There's no problem with the network, I can access either computer from the other, just not the Internet. This seems to have happened about the time I installed ZA Pro 3.0 and although the remote is in the Trusted Zone with security turned low, still no outside access.

I'm using a dial-up modem on the main computer on which the NIC is set to 192.168.0.1; the remote is set to 192.168.0.2

Any ideas why I can network fine but can't access the Net?

some tests
frpm the client
ping 192.168.0.1
pine www.experts-exchange.com
ping 206.169.61.246
check your gateway on the client
disable ZA on both boxes and see if that helps
check the settings and add the ip address of the client to ZA

I agree with  stevenlewis , but I would also try to totally uninstall ZA Pro,  if the problem is not resolved,and then contact their support people if you can not find an answer on their site.

I hope this helps !

Is AnalogX Proxy configured in Zone Alarm? It will need local and internet access.

I'm assuming AnalogX Proxy is a web proxy server on the gatway machine.

I was hoping this wouldn't be the solution but unfortunately only uninstalling ZAP3 worked. I've had problems with all versions of ZA so I guess I'll go find another firewall to hang my hat on.

Thanks everyone
