To find the IP of your laptop you'll need to click on Start / Run and type "cmd" and run that. At the command prompt type in "ipconfig". That should give you the IP that it has at least for this session. Problem is, that IP can change if you are set to obtain IP's automatically. Included in the information that you will see with the IP is the subnet mask and the gateway. Post the IP, subnet, and gateway here and either myself or someone else that sees it before me can tell you what range of IP's to plug into Zone Alarm to allow access.

I don't know how to determine it either, I thought it was winipcfg but I can't do that on XP Home or Pro. I tried to use the one from Belarc but I'm still not sure if it's right since it's not allowing access through high settings. Anyone know how to find the ip address of a computer? Oh, and I don't think the ip is static, I think it is assigned automatically? I remember seeing that in properties of my connection. Thank you, Spider! :-) Spider <spider1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Lene, I don't use Zone Alarm, but I would assume that if you put the IP addresses of any other workstations on your network in the Trusted Sites then you should be able to do what you want. Does your connection sharing require you to set a static IP on each work station? If you don't use static then you should put in the range of IP's that your connection sharing is using to issue IP's to the workstations.
