Network security question
Posted on 2006-07-16
I have 2 PC-s with XPPro and XPHome OS and I have setup up a small wired network between them. XPPro needs to access several files (like access database files) on the XPHome. Everything worked fine. Now I have decided to subsribe to local wirelles internet provider. I first thought of having XPPro directly connected to this wirelles network, and XPHome through XPPro, but the guy from provider has connected both of the PC's directly to a network (through a switch). Now I have shares on XPHome available through all network, which is highly unacceptable.
I need to know what is the best way to connect these 2 PC's to a wirelles network, and how to secure data on XPHome PC. If I need to switch to router (which I first suggested, but the guys from provider said that iit is not necessary (?)), and how do I need to configure these two PC"s to have datsa secured.
Thanks in advance, Goran...
