    When I am at LAN Parties our attendies like to share files on a network. We also like to be connected to the internet at the same time. I'd like to know if it is possible to share files and be on the internet with a firewall running. We run NIS 2003 Pro or ZoneAlarm. We typically are sharing a cable connnection (1.5 Mbps) and are on a Linksys router.

    to get easy filesharing out of ZA, click 'Firewall' on the rightside of the main window, then click the 'Zones' tab on the upper right.
    Click Add>>IP Range (bottom right) and enter the local IP range of the computers in your LAN
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Depending on the router, it probably acts as a firewall from the Internet, if that's what you are worried about. What minibubba suggested will also work well.
