NIS and network internet connection

By check_dis_bruvers ·
Ive recently connected both my computers on my network without a problem, untill i installed norton internet security 2003. now it only lets the host computer browse the internet, whereas both could before hand. file sharing and printer sharing still work fine and ive tried disabling firewalls on both computers without success. ive had this problem with my old computer, but cannot remember how i got them working again. any help would be much appreciated!

Are you using Internet Connection Sharing on one system to provide connectivity to both? If so, this article may assist you in resolving that issue:

which box is linux to be running Network Information Service? ( NIS )

nortons is blocking through traffic, since it's on a server box.
tell nortons to allow other systems to access internet.
