New to Norton v22... Too Many Changes to Firewall Settings
For the past 3 years, I've been using Norton Internet Security v20 because I had difficulty updating to a newer version. After dealing with multiple failed update attempts over 2 years ago, I simply gave up and just kept doing the live updates with the old version.
This week I updated to the newer version with a clean OS install and got quite the shock with the number of features that were removed under the Firewall settings, specifically Program Control and Trust Control. Maybe these are easy answers and someone can help with these questions.
1. How do I temporarily Block All Network Traffic? ( I used to be able to set a time for how long or until computer restart)
2. What happened to the old Trust Control? I'm currently on a Public/Restricted Network, but I can't see any of the other devices on the same network. In NIS v20, I could still see the other devices on my network with these settings.
3. What happened to the setting to block all File and Printer sharing access? Is that now covered by choosing a Public or Restricted network?
4. What happened to Program Components monitoring and the Advanced Events Monitoring settings in v20?
I used to be able to get a list of components underneath the programs that were also given internet access. I'm not even sure how that really works because I'm not a networking person, but would appreciate if someone can explain the difference between program and components when it comes to firewall access in Windows.
I would appreciate any information that can be offered.
