Default Firewall Leak Test on Client PC - Pls advise

sponsored links

 
Hi Guys,

First of all this is my setup.

1) Server (Win2k) running Wingate Server and firewall is ZoneAlarm Pro
2) Client (Win2k) running Wingate Client and NO FIREWALL.

I've just run Leaktest 1.1 from Gibson Research Corporation and I was suprised to see that my client PC failed the leak test. What the test does is send a few packets out and it checks if it was able to penetrate your firewall. If I run the test on my Server (with ZoneAlarm Pro) the firewall cannot be penetrated.

What I thought was that if my SERVER is protected 100%, and if my client only has access to the internet via my SERVER, then the client would be protected as well! As I wrong in my thinking? Do I need to install a firewall on my client PC as well???

Thanks
Derrick

Just FYI guys....I uninstalled Wingate totally.

Installed an application on my server called "Proxy" by ****ogX and that was it. Just pointed my client to that proxy and that was it.

And...just out of interest......with this setup (and a firewall on the server), there are NO leaks ... on both the server as well as the client.

Later
