I´ve been using ESS for quite some time now, but a couple of weeks ago I came up with a problem ... I bought a notebook and I installed a wireless modem/router at home. the router connects my desktop pc vía lan and my notebook via wi-fi, and of course it provides internet access for both of them. the problem is that, when I first created the the connection I set ESS to Strict Protection for the 10.0.0.0 lan created, resulting in no acces between the machines.. of course I went back on my tracks and when the pop up appeared again I chose Allow Sharing on both machines, BUT and here is where l found myself lost .. I'm having a lot of problems with the internal lan, even thow I set the firewall to allow sharing, and I still don't know if I'm protected in this setup ... The only solution so far is to disable the firewall... and I don't like this solution... Can any one givme imput on how to solve this??
