Allow one computer to bypass firewall, but not others

What is the best way to allow one computer to bypass the internal firewall settings without making the whole network vulnerable? i use one PC for gaming, and need it open, and the other for business, which i would like to keep secure. the gaming pc connects wirelessly, the business pc is plugged straight in.

Any suggestions? possibly a DMZ for the gaming pc similar to my xbox 360?

Water Leak


Most likely problem is a leaking heater core. This is what usually causes water leaking into the passenger compartment. Quick fix on many vehicles is to get a hose adapter the same internal diameter as the heater hoses, remove the heater hoses from the firewall connection to the heater core, and install the adapter, making a bypass loop. This will allow operation of the vehicle without coolant loss until you can replace the heater core. Of course you will have no heat in the passenger compartment during this time.

How to allow ping request through Norton Internet Security 2010 Smart Firewall

When Norton Internet Security is installed it will take over control of the Windows Firewall. So if you need to make changes to the computers firewall you will need to make the changes in Smart Firewall.

Below is the steps that you will need to go through to allow incoming echo Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) traffic through the Smart Firewall.

Note these are the Windows Vista and Windows 7 steps. If you have Windows XP the begining steps may be different but the final options you are looking for should be the same.

1. Click Start - Programs - Norton Internet Security - Norton Internet Security

2. Click on the "Settings" link in the Network section

3. Scroll down until you see the "Smart Firewall" section

4. Click on the "Configure" link for the Program Control option

5. Scroll down until you see the "TCP/IP Ping Command" option and click on the drop down to change it to "Allow".

6. Apply, then OK

At this point you should be able to ping this computer from another computer in the network. If you still have trouble you may want to check your other network settings and make sure you do not have any other programs that could be blocking ping requests to the computer.

I am trying to connect my ps3 to the internet wirelessly but when i enter the wep key and test connection it keeps timing out when trying to get ip address what do i do


Sounds to me that you have the internal firewall enabled in the router and haven't built ports or 'pin holes' to allow your ps3 to access the network through the gateway. If you know how to navigate the router's advanced setup page then the easiest option is to set it from either of the two available options for firewall security to the third option of 'clear sailing' . This is assuming that it's not just the router itself and other devices are able to connect without problem. The Netopia 3347 doesn't allow for NAT changing from type 2 or 3 which, despite what you may read, doesn't hinder gaming or speech, unless you go deep into the provisioning and are using it for vpn or as a bridge. I hope this is understandable and can at least point you in the right direction because this is one of the absolute BEST routers ever 'given away' with ADSL service from BellSouth/AT&T.

How can i unblock my facebook?


If you already have an account, just go into the Account Privacy Settings to select who can view your page and which details you want viewed by others and which groups to allow viewing.

If you were blocked by facebook administrators for privacy reasons, then I suggest writing facebook and asking for your permission back. It could take up to 10 days for them to respond to the email.

If you are trying to unlock your computer to allow viewing of facebook, follow these steps below:
You need to check your firewall proxy settings. Also visit a proxy hiding web site in order to bypass the block of the site to be able to mask your restrictions in order to view the site.

Difference between proxy server firewall and something called a gateway firewall ....Just a homework question..need another angle other then the veryconfusing textbook


In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. For example, it may filter traffic by IP address or protocol. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it 'caches' responses from the remote server, and returns subsequent requests for the same content directly.
A proxy server has many potential purposes, including:
  • To keep machines behind it anonymous (mainly for security).[1]
  • To speed up access to resources (using caching). Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server.[2]
  • To apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites.
  • To log / audit usage, i.e. to provide company employee Internet usage reporting.
  • To bypass security/ parental controls.
  • To scan transmitted content before delivery for malware.
  • To scan outbound content, e.g. for data leak protection.
  • To circumvent regional restrictions.
A proxy server that passes requests and replies unmodified is usually called a gateway or sometimes tunneling proxy.
A proxy server can be placed in the user's local computer or at various points between the user and the destination servers on the Internet.
A reverse proxy is a (usually) Internet-facing proxy used as a front-end to control and protect access to a server on a private network, commonly also performing tasks such as load-balancing, authentication, decryption or caching

A firewall is a dedicated appliance, or software running on a computer, which inspects network traffic passing through it, and denies or permits passage based on a set of rules.
It is a software or hardware that is normally placed between a protected network and an unprotected network and acts like a gate to protect assets to ensure that nothing private goes out and nothing malicious comes in.
A firewall's basic task is to regulate some of the flow of traffic between computer networks of different trust levels. Typical examples are the Internet which is a zone with no trust and an internal network which is a zone of higher trust. A zone with an intermediate trust level, situated between the Internet and a trusted internal network, is often referred to as a "perimeter network" or Demilitarized zone (DMZ).
A firewall's function within a network is similar to physical firewalls with fire doors in building construction. In the former case, it is used to prevent network intrusion to the private network. In the latter case, it is intended to contain and delay structural fire from spreading to adjacent structures.
Without proper configuration, a firewall can often become worthless. Standard security practices dictate a "default-deny" firewall ruleset, in which the only network connections which are allowed are the ones that have been explicitly allowed. Unfortunately, such a configuration requires detailed understanding of the network applications and endpoints required for the organization's day-to-day operation. Many businesses lack such understanding, and therefore implement a "default-allow" ruleset, in which all traffic is allowed unless it has been specifically blocked. This configuration makes inadvertent network connections and system compromise much more likely.

Netgear DGN2000: Only ethernet port 1 works. Lites work (flash green) for ports 2 - 4 but will not download Internet content. The browser indicates the site is found but downloading doesn't occur. I can...


Sounds like a configuration issue. With some routers you can set them up for bridging. Normally port 1 would connect your "bridge" and port 2-4 would connect your computers. You can test this by plugging your modem into port 1, and your computer in port 2. Power cycle your router and see if you get connectivity. It may be in your best benefit to reset the router to factory settings and see if 2-4 work with factory settings. After the reset, reconfigure the wireless side and your firewall.

Cannot connect Skype to Internet?


There is a version 4.1 Skype. You might need to upgrade by going to skype.com. If you already have the latest upgrade and you are on a LAN you might want to configure your LAN settings to allow access for skype. Otherwise, if you have a direct internet connection and you can get on the internet with your browser, you'll need to configure your connection to allow skype. If you have McAfee or Norton or another firewall you'll have to go to the program permissions to allow Skype. If you are also using Windows Firewall you can follow these steps to allow Skype to pass through your firewall.

Go to START + CONTROL PANEL, THEN RIGHT CLICK ON NETWORK CONNECTIONS. IN THE DIALOGUE BOX CLICK ON PROPERTIES. IN THE NEXT PANEL CLICK ON "ADVANCED". There you can set your Firewall settings to except Skype, Just click on SETTINGS + ADVANCED + EXCEPTIONS. Make sure Skype is checked. This will tell your computerl to allow skype to access the internet without being blocked by your firewall.

I hope this helps, but usually when you install Skype these settings are changed by the setup program. I suspect you have a firewall you will have to set manually. If you use Zone Alarm or some other firewall you will have to search the for help on your firewall support pages.

Router Firewall


Not entirely. Hardware firewalls (such as the one in your router) will block incoming connection attempts based on the port they're using, the protocol, and a number of other factors (varied between firewall brands). Some are designed to block only popular attacks (DoS, PoD, crackers on port 80, Telnet connect attempts, etc...) while others will block a larger variety of attacks.

Anyways, software firewalls will block almost all incoming Internet traffic (except for the ones defined in the exceptions) along with almost all outgoing Internet traffic. The only way I find this to be useful is if you're trying to keep some private information private, or if you use that computer to determine if some software is trying to phone home (web beacon, trojan, dialer, etc...).

I really don't see the need for Software firewalls unless you're a hard-core web-surfer and don't care what you click on. If you do like the extra security, perhaps one of the better software firewalls is made by ESET.

I prefer ESET to Symantec's Personal Firewall because Symantec's Firewall on one of my older systems was hijacked by a virus a few years back which allowed the virus unprecedented access to the root of my Operating System. The virus gutted the computer without any alerts from Norton CE or the Firewall.

Anyways, I hope this was the answer you were looking for. If not, please feel free to respond with more details on what you were truly asking. All the best. ;-)
