Firewall Settings

I am concerned that my Norton Security (Standard) is blocking apps that I do not want blocked.

For example right now I cannot read my work emails (Outlook) as the last sync was 22nd May. The cogs are spinning and it says connecting but nothing progresses. I have excellent wi fi connection.

I had a previous problem with skype.

I have tried adding outlook as a trusted app in the Advanced settings but it does not even appear in the list when chosen

I also always select "Allow" and "Do not ask again for this application" when Norton dialogue box opens but this does not stop repeats of the same ask.

Re: Firewall Settings

Hello andibuttri

Please try the reset of the Smart Firewall and the entries will show up as you use the Firewall. Please restart your computer at least once a day. Please turn off Fast Startup. You will find the reset button in the Firewall Settings.

Thanks.

Re: Firewall Settings

Hi, andibuttri. Is your Firewall set to Auto ?

If so, you should not get these prompts as the firewall is smart enough to decide what's permissable and what's not.

Re: Firewall Settings

when I reset the smart firewall, the APPLY BUTTON remains grayed-out!  How do I know that the firewall has been reset?

Re: Firewall Settings

If you restart your computer and check the program control on the Norton firewall, there will only be a few entries if the firewall did reset. If it does not seem to have reset, try again now that you have restarted your computer.

As you were able to see the firewall settings, I can assume you are using a Windows admin account.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
