Nortons Internet Security (or Nortons Security) FIREWALL vs. Mac's FIREWALL
Need to know best settings re firewall - Mac or Nortons or both? I bought Nortons Internet Security but when installed on my Mac it says it's Nortons Security.
I'm familiar w/ PC's, not Mac's. PC's, generally should not have two firewalls - not good, gotta choose (same goes for antivirus programs). Does the same go for Macs....I recently read there's 'software firewalls' and 'hardware firewalls' (never heard/knew of that). So what does that mean as far as what someone should have/use, one or both? I'm guessing Macs firewall is part of the OS therefore a hardware firewall????? And Nortons is a software firewall???? I contacted Nortons (tech support) and they didn't know how I should set my settings if I felt it's better to use Mac's firewall and Nortons for the rest. Of course both parties feel their firewall is better. Honestly, I don't know whats best but want to know and understand my choices.
Need help, super frustrated and very nervous on the internet (keep getting notices saying a connection attempt was blocked). Using a desktop High Sierra and ethernet antenna ISP just installed (no router yet but will be getting one, nothing to network right now anyways but will soon and will have to learn about wifi and security for that... :/ Not a clue how vulnerable I am. Pls help! Thank you.
