New network detected

If a connection to a new network is detected, the user can select the level of protection. This setting will apply for connections to all remote computers from the given network. There are two protection levels available:

Public network – Enable this option if you don’t want to share files and folders of the system and don’t want them to be visible to other network users. This is recommended for users with a wireless connection. Sharing of resources is deactivated.

Home or office network – The computer is visible for other network users and the remote side can access its resources. Sharing is enabled. Recommended for computers in a local network.


If network has a home or office protection type then directly connected subnets are automatically considered trusted.
