 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.

Hi, I wasn't sure what the IP address of my laptop was.  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! :-)

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.
