First excuse me for mistakes that might occur, but English is not my mother tale.
I have a desktop and a laptop. In my home every 2 to use the router by Wifi for access to ADSL. Thise private networkis protected by a firewall. In addition, via Ethernet connection on the router, my TV Sony 40W5500 also has network access to content and medias of the PCs.
On weekends, I find myself outside my home where a public WiFi network is accessible to my laptop.
My question: given the configuration of this laptop to enable sharing on my private network, is there a risk that its files are also accessible to other users of the public network. If so, how to set up "simply" (via a software ?) the PC laptop to make it protected in use in public Wifi network and not in the private network?
Thank you all
Thank you very much
What OS are you on? I know on Vista/Win7 you can set each network you connect to as "public" or "private" and your file sharing is turned on/off and configured according to what if you are on a "public" or "private" network. I havn't used XP in a long time so I don't know if it does that also.
Otherwise, you can try Hotspot Shield.
