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.

Crap Software Config Settings, How to set-up the firewall...


Configuring **** Software Pro
--------------------------------------
Configuring the Standard Settings

Your first configuration should be this of **** Software should be like this ----

Launch **** Software Pro and click to highlight the "Overview" tab on the left hand side. In the pane that appears on the right hand side click the "Preferences" tab and in the section "check for updates" check "Manually".

In the "General" section you can also configure **** Software to load at start up which is advisable because this software is you first line defense against uninvited invasion of you computer by a whole gamult of virii, spyware, adware and bots! Virus checking software does have its place but remember that prevention is always better than a cure!

**** Software Pro's program control is automatically configured. When you run it for the first time it will ask on behalf of programs installed on your system for permission to access the Internet. You Browser will be the first to request - just tick the "Yes" box and the "Remember this setting" box and **** Software will always allow you browser access automatically.

Unless you use online databases etc., there should be no reason for any application other than a browser, email client, ftp client, streaming media player or a download manager to gain access to the Internet.

So consider what type of program it is that need Internet access before giving **** Software permission to allow it. If it is just a driver file (.DLL that request Internet Access, always search Windows to try and identify it. Many seudo-virii such as Adware and sub class seven Trojans access the Internet from your system using .dll files.
--------------------------------------
Configuring the Advanced Settings

If you are not on a LAN (connected to another computer in a network) you can use this guide to give your firewall some real muscle:

Launch **** Software Pro and click to highlight the "Firewall" tab on the left hand side. In the pane that appears on the right hand side in the section "Internet Zone Security" set the slider control to "High" then click the "Custom" button in the same section. The next settins page is divided into two section with tabs Internet Zone and Trusted Zone at the top of the page.

Under the Internet Zone tab there is a list of settings that can be accessed by scrolling.

At the top is the high security settings and the only thing that should check from there is "allow broadcast/multicast".
The rest should be unchecked.

Scroll down until you get to the medium security settings area. Check all the boxes in this section until you get to 'Block Incomming UDP Ports". When you check that you will be asked to supply a list of ports, and in the field at the bottom of the page enter 1-65535.

Then go back to the list and check the box a longside 'Blockl Outgoing UDP Ports" and at the bottom of the page enter 1-19, 22-79, 82-7999, 8082-65535.

Repeat this procedure for the following settings
"Block Incoming TCP Ports": 1-65535
"Block Outgoming TCP Ports": 1-19, 22-79, 82-7999, 8082-65535
Then click "Apply", "ok" at the bottom of the page.

Back in the right hand "Firewall" pane go next to the yellow "trusted Zone Security" section and set it to "high" with the slider. Click "Custom" and repeat the ABOVE procedure this time choosing the "Trusted Zone" tab at the top of the settings page.

These settings will stop all incoming packects at ports 1-65535 and also block all pings, trojans etc. These settings will also stop all spyware or applications from phoning home from your drive without your knowledge!

Good luck!

What will i do my computer always disconnected from the network

or it might be the firewall settings

Double-click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop.

This opens the Explorer window.


Navigate to the folder you wish to share.

Right-click the folder and select "Properties." Click the "Sharing" tab.


This is where you configure the folder for network sharing and set permissions for users to access the directory.

Click the "Share" button.


This opens a window with a list of users configured on the network.

Add the groups and users who are allowed to have access to the folder, by highlighting the name and clicking the "Add" button.


When you've added all the users, click the "Share" button.

Click the "Advanced Settings" button.


This opens a configuration window where you can give the folder name an alias.

This hides the real name of the folder and shows the alias to users when they browse the computer for open shares.

Click "Ok" in the main share properties window.

The settings are saved and take effect immediately.

That seems to be a normal result (Lack of intenet access) if you are pulling down torrents if your router is configured as DHCP. UTorrent recommends static IP addressing to optimise the application.

You can restore your connectivity by closing the uTorrent application by right-clicking the icon in the taskbar and exiting the program completely.

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?
