Re: Should I permanently allow 2 LAN computers access each other via both firewalls?
You could set a static IP address on each computer and punch a hole in both firewalls for the IP address/MAC address/port combination for each computer.
Allow incoming new,established and outgoing established connections only from these IP/MAC/port combinations.
As you have a firewall on your router, i think this would help mitigate any security risks it would entail.
I'd be interested in the opinion of others.
