Firewall Configuration


A firewall is a type of security mechanism used for preventing security threat in both incoming and outgoing computer traffic. It protects your computer system and/or the private network from intrusions.
It acts as a barrier, which checks all the incoming and outgoing information to and from your computer or a network based on the firewall settings. Firewalls can be customized according to the level of security required. It filters the messages based on some conditions, such as the IP address, ports, protocols, domain names etc.
These can be implemented in the hardware, software or sometimes both and scan the entire messages passing through it and veriy whether each block or packet of the message meets the specified security criteria.
Some operating systems like Microsoft Windows offers built-in firewalls, which are by default turned on to block incoming threats from the Internet. You can also look for any third-party software or hardware firewall to replace the default Windows firewall.
Types of firewall
There are various types of firewalls like:
1. Packet filtering firewall
2. Application-level gateways
3. Circuit-level gateways
4. Hybrid firewall
The role of packet filtering firewall is to examine the information available in the header of the message packets. The Application-level gateway firewall works on the application layer of the protocol stack. It works in a more intelligent way as compared to the packet filtering firewall.
Mentioned below are some of the conditions, which help in adding or removing the filters from the firewall:
1. IP address: Every machine connected to Internet has a unique IP address. You can customize the firewall to block any IP address, if it seems to show an uneven or unauthorized attempt or nature.
2. Protocols: You can decide which protocols to be included in your firewall’s filters. Some of the commonly used protocols, which can be included in the firewall are: IP, HTTP, TCP, FTP, SMTP etc.
3. Ports: You can configure the firewall to allow or block any port number.
Similarly, there are various other conditions which can be used to configure the firewall.

I can get on yahoo email account but cannot connect to yahoo messenger. I receive message that my yahoo virtual IP server failed. What can I do to use yahoo messenger?


You shouldn't have a virtual ip number unless you're using a VPN to connect to the net. Check your firewalls, router, anti-virus and make sure the port yahoo msg uses isn't blocked. Yahoo messenger support site should tell you what the port address is that needs to be opened to use it. TYpically they are not blocked but a firewall or other, like router or anti-virus may be configured to block the port,.

The PCI serial port doesn't operate cash drawer


Check your windows firewall program. Make sure your firewall is not blocking the cash draw. Your cash draw program is like a internet connection and the firewall program would be blocking it.

I have set up my wireless router and it works fine on my computer but my other computer gets on the internet but will not get on a vpn network. what am i doing wrong


Make sure to open the ports of the VPN tunnel your are using to the router.Ask your tech support from your office (to where you are connecting to) and ask what ports needed to open ojn the router. Once you got the ports, contact router manufacturer to help you open those ports.(windows firewall might also be blocking the ports so try to disable it).

How do i reprogram a 2wire 2071-A


Do you have your instructions? I can tell you but it would be easier for you if you can just look at the guide and take your time. You can do a reset and then reprogram. If that's all you want to know I can do that. Would you want me to get you athe manual or tell you specifically how to do something?
