My work uses Windows only. So when I asked for a linux computer in addition to my windows computer, they said only if the linux computer is NOT connected to the company's network. So my windows and linux computers are direct connected, so:
internet ----- company network ----- windows computer ----- linux computer
And they said I CANNOT enable internet connection sharing (to allow the linux computer to access the internet through the windows computer) because that would connect the linux computer to the company network; I think they think it could be a security risk.
So my questions are:
Is it a security risk to my employer to enable internet connection sharing with my linux computer?
Would ICS really connect my linux computer to the company network? or would the linux computer only see my windows computer and the internet?
