I'm not able to realy get a straight answer when I contact Symantec Support. I have Norton AV2008 and I run it on a windows Vista Home Premium. When I turn on the Windows Firewall, the Windows security panel indicates that I have 2 firewalls on, Wn=indows and Norton. When I turn off the windows Firewall, the windows and the Norton security panels indicate that I am firewall protected. When I contact symantec support, they say that the NAV2008 has a "mini- firewall" and thus not needing another one to remain protected from inbound threats. I know it works because when I look at the logs it shows that things get blocked. Just confused about this. Am I firewall protected or not? At least inbound. I know that a firewall technically controls in and out bound. Since the NAV does not control outbound, is that why you can't officially say its a firewall?
