Re: firewall setup


What program are you asking about?  Which version?  You can find the version of Norton products by clicking Help/Support > About.

Generally you don't need to do anything with Norton's Smart Firewall as it configures itself to give you the best security.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

You haven't answered the questions I've asked.  Do you mean firewalls in general, or do you specifically mean Norton Smart Firewall?

Re: firewall setup

OK, well I'm not going to do your homework for you as these forums are for support with Norton home-user products.  Perhaps you'll need to use your favourite search engine.

I will say that there are different types of firewalls.  There are software firewalls like the Norton Smart firewall, and there are hardware firewalls.  Routers have firewalls.  You're question isn't easy to answer because it depends on what you are trying to achieve.

There are home-user firewalls, enterprise grade firewalls, military grade firewalls and so on.

Here's a few links to get you started.

Someone else here might help you with your homework, perhaps.

Good luck!
