Is Trusted Zones a good idea?


Recommended Posts

Anyone has any thoughts about adding the whole network like 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 in the Trusted zone?

It allows ping to the computer but at the same time, I wonder why you would want to put the whole network as trusted. What if a computer is infected and start attacking other computers on your network? Shouldn't the Trusted zone always be empty?

If you don't need to share files or allow remote access in your LAN, you can mark the network as public. However, normally users need to share files or allow remote access for administrators in networks so it makes sense to mark such networks as trusted regardless of the possibility of potential malware spreading through shares.

Thanks for the info, it definitely makes sense to add the network in the trusted zones, especially if it's a Windows domain so that everything that is remote from the server can work as expected.

You may think twice about it while connected to a public WIFI hotspot, which in some cases may be your home WIFI router network, even seemingly password protected. 😉 It depends to what degree you trust your neighbors in and out of the network.
