Virus Protection On Networked Computers


Virus Protection On Networked Computers

Norton Internet Security allows you to organize computers on your home network and the Internet into Trusted and Restricted Zones. Zones allow you to grant trusted computers more access to your computer while blocking malicious users.

Computers in the Trusted Zone are not regulated by the Personal Firewall. They have as much access to your computer as they would have if you did not have a firewall. Computers in the Restricted Zone cannot communicate with your computer at all.

Be very careful when you add computers on the Internet to your Trusted Zone. If a computer successfully attacks that computer, your computer may also be at risk.

The Home Network Wizard is the fastest way to organize computers into zones. You can also manually add individual computers to zones.

To categorize computers with the Home Network Wizard

1. In the main window, double-click Personal Firewall.

2. In the Personal Firewall window, on the Networking tab, click Wizard.

3. In the Home Network Wizard opening window, click Next.

4. In the resulting list, check the network adapters that you want to configure automatically and add to your Trusted Zone.

5. Click Next.

6. Click Finish to close the wizard.

To manually add computers to zones

4. Click Add.

5. In the Specify Computers window, identify the computer.

6. When you have finished adding computers, click OK.

To remove computers from zones

1. In the main window, double-click Personal Firewall.

2. In the Personal Firewall window, on the Networking tab, select the zone containing the computer you want to remove.
