Firewalls and settings for new users
I have been reading with great interest and a little fear regarding the dreaded "firewall".I understand what it does and why.But a queston I have is.As a new user to computers and NIS2009.Do I just leave it on its default settings and be happy with that and trust its doing its job?Or Are there little things I should do to personalize it to the way my PC is set up,or do I assume that the firewall can work this out on its own and adjust accordingly?
Especially when it comes to this Remote assistance(this does not show in my logs and as far as I know is off),But this "remote access connection manager service" which in my case starts up and I can see it in my system log.As a new user this area does confuse me.Can any one explain when exactly should we see any "REMOTE" whatever showing up in our logs?(Windows logs) as I understand I should be the one to initiate any remote services.Sorry guys if this is coming across a little jumbled.I will wait and see what response I get and hopefully clarify anything then.
Does Norton use the remote access connection manager?
