    Join 2 different managed networks?

      Total Protection 2009

      Is it possible to join two different managed networks, both of which are "managed" by different computers?

      What I mean is this:

      At my office, I have two computers, my desktop and my notebook. I want my desktop to be the administrator, and I want my notebook to join that network. I'd like only those two computers to show up on the network map.

      At home, I have a desktop. And, I bring my notebook home. There, I want my notebook to be the administrator, and I want only those two computers to show up on THAT network map.

      Can this be done?

      Thanks.

          To help you do this, let's assume you need to start from scratch (use the tool found here: http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=307302&lc=1033&partner=McAfee&type =TS&ia=1). Clean up all three machines involved.

          On your Office Network:
          a) Trust the network first with your Desktop.
          b) Trust the network next with your Notebook.
          c) Choose to manage the notebook from your Desktop - give it whatever permissions you wish.

          On your Home Network: (Do NOT run the cleanup tool again on the notebook as you will lose information about the office network)
          a) Clean up the Home Desktop.
          b) Trust the network first on the Notebook.
          c) Trust the network next on the Desktop.
          d) Use the Notebook to manage the Desktop.

          This should do the job.
