Windows XP Does Not Allow Inbound/Outbound Connections

Hi there. As of recently my Windows XP Home configuration has went haywire. Just about 3-4 days ago I could not access the shared folders, sign into Skype/MSN, access my PC through LogMeIn Remote or download torrents. The only thing this computer is used for is getting some movies from torrent sites and accessing my shared hard drives, and the only access I have is with VNC Viewer.

On accessing the shared folders I get the following message:

\\an-tower is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Access is denied.


And when trying to access torrents via the downloader, it tells me there are no open ports for downloading.

I checked Windows Firewall, the service is off, if I enable it to turn off the Firewall, I have no access to it due to a "Group Policy". I done a registry fix to remove the policy restrictions, however when I reopen the firewall configuration, it is restricted again.

    Hi everyone.

    mdsaeed67: I know a format would solve all my problems, but then I'd lose all my downloads as of so far.

    ghouliass: I already have Spybot S&D and also MalwareBytes AntiMalware. Nothing there.

How Do I Configure Port Rate Limiting on a Modular Switch?


This is the method of configuring Switch:
Configure QoS CAR on an interface to implement rate limiting in the inbound direction. Alternatively, configure a traffic policy with an ACL-based traffic classifier to limit the rate of packets matching the ACL.
QoS CAR cannot be applied to outbound traffic, but you can limit the rate of outbound traffic using a traffic policy or traffic shaping.

Enable or disable the firewall in windows 7


A firewall is a software or hardware base solution to filter the incoming and outgoing traffic of your computer or network. All the entering or leaving traffic from your computer pass through the firewall, which inspect the all types of traffic and either allow or deny the traffic depending upon the firewall settings. Microsoft includes the built-in firewall feature in all latest windows operating systems like windows XP, Vista and now in windows 7.
Follow the given steps to configure built-in firewall in windows 7:To use this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.
First click on Start button and then click on Control Panel option. Now in Control Panel click on "System and Security" link to go next.
On next page, you can see the firewall link "Windows Firewall", Click on this link to configure the firewall.
There are many options on the left side panel of this page regarding firewall configurations under "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall", For example:
- Change notification settings
- Turn Windows Firewall on or off
- Restore defaults
- Advanced settings
On the right side panel, you can see the two types of link for firewall settings, For example:
- Home or Work (Private) networks
- Public networks
Now in left side panel, click on Change notification settings to customize the firewall settings.

By default windows firewall is on for both private and public network, here you can turn off the default firewall policies.
To allow the default or recommended settings either click on the Use recommended settings button on the right pane or click on the Restore default link on the left side panel.
Here click on the Restore default button and a restore defaults confirmation message will be opened, Click on Yes button.
But if you are a expert user then you can use the Advance Settings link on left side panel to configure the advance firewall settings for inbound and outbound traffic according to your need.
Click on the Inbound Rules link in the left side panel. You can see here a list of all Inbound Rules is displayed. On clicking an enabled rule, a list of actions is shown in the Actions Pane. Click on Disable Rule to disable the selected rule. You can also Cut, Copy and Delete the rule.

What is the difference between inbound marketing and outbound marketing?


Inbound links:
Inbound links or commonly known as "backlinks" are the links pointing to your site and search engines like Google like it when you have thousands of links pointing to your site but sometimes Google penalizes you for it too if you have poor quality and irrelevant backlinks pointing to your site.
Outbound links:
These are the links pointing to other websites from your website and you have more control over these links. People have different views about outbound links and many say that it is against the SEO rules and search engines can penalize you for doing this. This approach is wrong; I know Google cannot penalize me if I put a link to Google inside my post.

You can sum up all this things when properly read on linking blogs.

Firewalls


Hi,

It's advisable to use only 'ONE' firewall at a time. If you try to use multiple firewall at a same time, it would affect your outbound connections as well as inbound traffic.

Note - Advisable to disable your windows firewall, if you want to use Zonealarm or Avg firewall.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Email - Dell Insiron 530s


You've verified your firewall configuration settings in TM 2008? Make sure it's not blocking your outbound traffic to. Easiest thing to do is probably disable the TM services, reboot, and test e-mail. If it goes out with no problem then reable TM services and configure to allow SMTP traffic outbound or disable the Firewall feature all together.

I've had a lot of pesky encounters with TM IS 2008 where the firewall feature causes all sorts of head aches. It doesn't realize that we're only worried about inbound traffic...not outbound. Actually, all the Internet Security products out there are like this.

Hope this helps.
