Your computer has the firewall installed in it, you will need to turn off or configure your firewall settings in your computer, to do that if using windows XP: Start/Control Panel/Switch to classic view/Windows Firewall, turn off firewall.
Windows Vista/7 Start/Control Panel/Windows Firewall turn off firewall. Follow these steps good luck.

Cant send


Hello,

Are you talking about sending email? A common problem is that all internet traffic works fine except for sending email, and this can be caused by a firewall either in the hardware(router) or on the client(computer).

Try disabling any firewalls you have on the router and client computer, or if you know how to navigate around the programs you need to allow email traffic.

I hope this helps giving the limited details provided :)

Regards,
G33k

Tip

Create Exceptions in Windows Vista Firewall


Windows Vista Firewall acts like a fence between your computer and the outer world, but since any fence needs a gate, you have to let some data get in and out by setting exceptions. While some exceptions are set up automatically by Windows Vista, others have to be configured manually Setting a manual exception for a certain program.
  1. Click Start and enter the Control Panel
  2. Here, access the link called "Allow a program through Windows Firewall" (bellow the Security). exceptions1.png
  3. Go to the General Tab, and make sure that the option "On (recommended)" is selected. If not, enable it (this will enable the firewall). exceptions2.png
  4. Go to the Exceptions tab at the top.
  5. To add a program you to your exception list click Add Program (near the bottom). exceptions3.png
  6. A list with the programs on your computer is displayed. Locate the program, highlight it and click OK. exceptions4.png
  7. Be sure that the check box besides your program is checked, then click OK exceptions5.png
Other tips
The most powerful addition to the Vista Firewall is the excellent Rules system. This allows you to enable traffic only in certain conditions, just like opening a gate only for people dressed in white, but they will only be allowed to enter.
  • to specific computers and users
  • to many different protocols (not just TCP and UDP)
  • to both local and remote ports
  • to specific interface types: location area network, remote access, or wireless
  • to specific Vista services
Despite the vulnerability claims, a well configured Vista Firewall is much more capable than all its predecessors, and despite the fact that nothing is perfect, everything starts from you, the user behind the screen.

How to add an exception to your Windows Firewall - XP, Vista and 7

Windows Firewall protects your computer by blocking communications (i.e., bugs and malicious software) attempting to connect to your computer. Sometimes, Windows Firewall will block a program that you use from connecting to the Internet. If you are experiencing this problem, but you are still able to browse the Web (demonstrating that it's not a general problem with your Internet connection), you can add a Windows Firewall exception for the program that's having problems. This will allow you to use that program without Windows Firewall blocking it.

Setup Steps - Windows XP

  1. Click Start. Click All Programs and find the program that you want to add an exception for. Then right-click the program and click Properties.
  1. On Shortcut tab in the Properties dialog box, right-click the Target box, and then click Copy.
Click Cancel to close the Properties dialog box.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
From the Control Panel, click Security Centre
From the Security Centre, click Windows Firewall.
On the Exceptions tab, click Add Program
In the Add a Program dialog box, click Browse - > (IE7)
In the Browse dialog box, right-click the File name box, then click Paste.
Click Open.
Click OK.
Windows Firewall adds an exception for your program. Click OK again.

Skype isn't letting me log in


If you are sure that you are typing in the correct password, then you might need to check your router settings.

Try to reboot your router first, then try again. If you still experience the same issue, you now have to check the firewall settings. Please see instruction per Skpe;
  1. If you are on a network that uses a proxy server, make sure your proxy settings are correct. To check proxy settings in Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings. To check proxy settings in Skype, go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection.
  2. Check your firewall settings. If you are using the Windows inbuilt firewall, click Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall, and make sure Don't Allow Exceptions is not ticked.
    If you are using a different firewall, click Start > All Programs and select your firewall. Make sure that exceptions are allowed. Go to the Exceptions tab. If Skype is listed, delete it. Start Skype. When prompted, select Yes to allow Skype to connect to the internet.
  3. In Skype, go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection and then un-tick Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections

Nat problem


first off make sure that you manually allow the port exception on windows. second make sure the exception is added to your router, for example if your computer ip adress is 192.168.1.101 (run ipconfig in command prompt to find out) make sure the port is forwarded (use a number above 40000 and make sure it is not blacklisted). next if your router has uNap settings/NAT translation make sure you add vuze to its programs to monitor list.

I cant get my linksys router to work


After you logon to the router, click the 'Security' tab, then click the 'Firewall' tab and in those settings you can enable/disable the firewall, but your best bet is to setup exceptions in the firewall to allow certain traffic and deny what you dont want... But thats a subject all onto its own...lol

Restricting websites at router or firewall level


Hello,

The pix does not allow you to block urls except if you use it in conjunction with websense for example. You could however deny all outgoing traffic to port 80 except for the ip address of the websites you want to be able to access.

To do that you would setup an access-list allowing you internal network to access certain ips on port 80 and deny all other traffic outgoing.

Let me know if you need more information on how to accomplish this.

Router not allowing connection to sites


Turn off the router's firewall or allow for exceptions. Most downloads and other software than browsing use additional ports that the firewall is not allowing to pass thru.
