    Hi folks....

    We have a home network with PC's (DHCP) and a network printer (fixed IP) all connected directly to an internet router via CAT5 Ethernet cables.

    1. Whenever I reload windows(7) on one of the PC's & add ESET smart security the ESET software detects a new network and asks the usual question (trusted etc). What should I answer if we wish to allow the PC's to communicate with each other (playing network games etc) ?. I usually select 'not trusted' (or whatever it calls it) as the router is also connected to the internet. The last thing I want to do is compromise our internet security in any way. If my answer was wrong, how do I get it to ask the question again without re-installing ESET ?.

    2. Even if my usual answer is correct, no games (Minecraft server, age of empires etc) can see the other PC(s). How do I allow this without compromising internet security ?.

    Hopefully the answer is simple and makes sense :)

    Regards
