Does a host firewall prevent access to guest pcs?

    If you have a software firewall installed on the host, such as Zone Alarm,
    will it prevent external access to the guest pcs? Or do you need a firewall
    installed inside each guest pc?

    I am not worried about programs inside the guest pc accessing the network;
    I'm just concerned about hackers accessing the guest pc.

    See Robert's answer. It's really important to treat a virtual PC just as you
    would a real PC...
