Should I permanently allow 2 LAN computers access each other via both firewalls?
I sync my main PC to my secondary PC often. I temporarily disable firewalls on both computers and re-enable UFW when I'm finished. I sync via an Ethernet cable and am not on the Internet when syncing.
Instead of disabling the 2 PC firewalls all the time. Would it be best in permanently allowing both private IP address or permanently allow ssh? Would this be a security risk when I go online? I also have a firewall on my router.
PC #1 = 192.168.1.5
PC #2 = 192.168.1.6
I sync all data to PC#2 using Grsync and any files not on PC#1 are deleted on PC#2.
