Re: Upgrade firewall

MS Sysinternals TCPView a good base to start off with.

Re: Upgrade firewall

Well having a application control center with Norton firewall that is monitoring all applications that are running and connecting to the internet. With info on the application and what IP address it is connecting to would be nice feature added to the firewall.

 

Also I notice with the smart firewall feature it lets any application connect to the internet and doesn't give you the option to block the connect unless you go into the application control center of Norton and know what application you what to block. It would be nice to get notice of new applications that are trying to connect to the internet.

 

So I agree add better application control to the Norton product

Re: Upgrade firewall

I agree.  Once upon a time long long ago, in a land far away, Norton did indeed give a complete web history.  Although it did not give process information as to what process attempted to access the internet, it did give a full list of web accesses, which was very helpful in rooting out offending malware, and rogue processes on a machine.  Now we don’t even get access to the web history.  It would be nice to return the web access log to NIS, and adding the feature of logging which process requested the process would be nice as well.  Which as has been stated "IS" part of many other top line Security products.  As My buddy and fellow Nebraskan Larry always says "Getther Done"

Re: Upgrade firewall

I see this thread is now 20 months old with no progress that we have been made aware of. I believe at this point that none of these suggestions are being considered.

Re: Upgrade firewall

This topic hasn't been commented on by a Symantec employee since 2010.  I do think it is a good idea, by the way.
