Does firewall on the server protects the client computer?
Posted on 2004-08-04
I have setup a simple peer to peer (connected directly by cable) network at my home:
Tha main computer: running Windows ME. PC-cillin antivirus and firewall installed. Connects to the internet via a 56K modem.
The client computer: A sony laptop, running Windows XP pro, no antivirus and firewall. Connects to the internet via the above computer.
Now my question:
Is the client computer (laptop) protected by the firewall installed on the main computer? If not, what should I do. Any ways other than installing firewall on the laptop?
I am willing to increase the points if the answer is needs to be comprehensive.
Appreciate your comments.
