Windows 7: question about someone using p2p on the same network as you

question about someone using p2p on the same network as you

If someone on the same network as you uses p2p software will they end up forcefully sharing their files to you or you to them? Even though you do not have p2p software.

Will malware be force shared between the two?

No.

Malicious files can get on the computer that is using P2P and then those files can look for ways to get onto other computers on the network. The same is true for computers on the internet... since the internet is a network.

P2P software is a very generic term. Not all P2P software is used for file sharing.

A setting of Public network tells the Windows firewall to use rules that prevents certain things.

A quick search found this info:
