Two Network Cards

I have installed two network cards in my computer
to share my internet with the rest of my network.
But I want to access the computers on my network
from my main computer. But when I put in the IP
address of the computers on my network my main
computer goes out to the internet insted of
going to my private network. How do I controle
wich network card I am searching on or out off?

would be better served by using a device called a router instead of 2 NICs.

How your network is configured?

It's my choice to not duplicate the web content about how to setup ICS at and You have all the details on your end and all you need are these websites plus one more insight to get it to work or at least understand what it doesn't.

The additional insight is that if you use ICS, ICF is automatically enabled and filesharing from the ICS HOST is disabled without work on your part. Zonealarm is not detailed in the noted sites, but ZoneLabs should give you support. Worth noting is the free version of Zonealarm may not allow you to fileshare on the ICS host. Ask Zonelabs about that since I don't offer Zonealarm support.
