fire wall problem

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Rick & Becky Smith, Jun 26, 2004.

  1. Hi all,
    I have been having a problem with my fire wall.
    I'm using Norton Internet Security (2001) when active it tends too hinder my
    ability to load web pages and get downloads I have requested.
    I have to disable the firewall, refresh the page or restart and complete the
    download and then re-enable the fire wall so as to protect my system.
    I even have to disable the fire wall to let Norton run it's own live update!
    I have been getting hit be several trojans of late especially sokets de
    trois v1 trojan so I really need to keep it up.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    You can put the machine with Norton behind a cheap NAT router if you can
    that cost as much as Norton. You need to drop Norton -- no problem with the
    protection that a NAT router provides.
