How can I set up Zone Alarm in a network?

OK, tried going thru help, but couldn't get it done.

How to do I set up Zone Alarm to work in a network? I got 3 wireless computers I want to share a printer with. The printer is hooked to the main computer which is wired in.

I have successfully added a printer to a remote (wireless computer) and can print fine SO LONG AS I TURN OFF ZONE ALARM. However, it I leave on Zone Alarm it will not work.

I take it from the help section, I need to add these computers as "trusted". But can't seem to make it work.

Thanks for any suggestions...

Edit: Forgot. 2 computers running ME, 1 Win '98 and the main computer running Win '98SE

I haven't used ZA in a while so my memory is a little sketchy; but you should have an option to enter IP numbers for computers that you will allow access to. You need to add the numbers of the computers you are using. Wish I could be more help but I simply don't fully remember.

Under "firewall" click on the "zones" tab and add the ips in.

Thanks! That did the trick. I had to use help to get the exact config command, but otherwise no problems. Laptop works, now to move on to the kids computers.

One nice feature I discovered was when I made the printer a shared printer, I was able to give it a password. So, now my kids won't be able run off pages and pages of crap and use up all the ink. They will need to let us know when they want to print. But then, all my wife and I will need to do is type in the password.
