Antivirus and connection sharing
If you run antivirus (Norton) on your main PC you use to share out an internet connection to several other PC's will the antivirus on the main PC help protect the "down stream" PC's?
I have a CCNA type of lab setup and I don't want to bother putting antivirus on any of my workstations or servers since they are older PC's and slow enough already. I was hoping my main PC's software would at least help monitor for any nasty stuff passing through. Will it?
I don't spend much time actually connected to the real internet but I'd like to avoid issues for the times that I am connected.
Any computer with a path to the Internet needs its own antivirus program installed.
See these free ones (where it says 'freeware'):
Avast, AVG and AntiVir are most popular but Microsoft Security Essentials has improved a lot. Get 32 bit version.
Here is a good comparison:
