Routers have firewalls.
They separate you from the internet.
Give you an internal ip range (relates back to the previous)
If you get a nasty on one of your machines that opens a port on the machine itself its still blocked on the routers.

So you use your first machine as a gateway? Why not just set up a simple pfsense box...

cuz PC1 also already has a firewall, also already separates the internal network from the internet, also already gives me an internal ip range..

i do not know how do u come up with either having a router to otherwise being:

There are reasons why it can be considered insecure...
At least from my standpoint.
Software firewalls can be easily exploited if on a consumer/production machine.

However you are happy with your setup and that is good enough for me.

how easily? 0day xplts?
as if u dont have those for routers as well

in either case, u think ur router is ur first line of defense? hardly..

anyways, u couldav avoided all this dick-measuring like, instead of going "oh, u dont want a router, so u do not care about security n ur network is TOTALLY insecure" u couldav just gone with something like "ur network security is only as good as ur attacker's lack of skill" n be done with it..

I agree totally.
And yes router do have 0 day security holes.
Before this turns into a fight,
Lets call a truce so if anyone else wishes to preform a daisy chain setup,
They have a solution.
(so mods do not remove this thread,)

Ps.
I have a double NAT,
A DMZ,
Two firewalls,
And my router.
I know enough about security to protect what I use,
My specialty is preventing the human aspect of an attack.

Bloodninja, do you need anything else? Can we ask the mods to mark this thread as solved?

yep, thats a wrap, thx Jon..
i only came here after being denied support from Microsoft for this being an "off-policy issue"..
Win7 is so huge n i figured theres a bunch of MCSE's lurkin' around in here that i thought i'd try my luck for an elegant solution or a proper way of approaching this, perhaps being pointed to a feature thats been inside Win7 itself all along..

i do not need to call anything..
the only reason i replied in the first place was cuz i was intrigued thinking u were refering to the way i decided to use RDC as being "totally insecure"..

You have all those certifications yet you couldn't set up a router?
I'm sure you had another reason for not having a router set up in the first place but I can't think of any good reasons not to have one myself, anyway I'm glad you have it working now.
