Symantec Gateway Security 5460

My firewall is interfering with access to my internet. We had a bad storm and the log says it has stopped. We connected the internet directly to my laptop bypassing the firewall and it worked. Any suggestions is this a configuration issue? My 2 IT guys don't have a clue.

Cannot connect to internet - get told cannot connect the web page. No addresses connect....

it is almost certainly your firewall or other security software blocking the connection Make sure that your firewall program is configured to allow internet access.Besides personal firewalls, other security programs, including Norton or Symantec Antivirus, can block internet access or cause other connection issues, especially after the browser is updated.

I cannot install the latest version of yahoo messenger

Your Windows firewall may be interfering with the connection. You can unplug from the internet, then turn off your firewall, (security center), then install, then turn the firewall back on and reconnect your internet cable.
Or, follow the instructions from Yahoo here and here.

I maintain the network at a local school that uses a symantec gateway security appliance for content filturing and firewall. The need has now arisen to have a web server to allow parents and student to...

This is a very bad idea from a security standpoint.
By poking a hole in your firewall you are going to allow a lot more than parents to access the student's data. Once you do that I know that I could access every single computer on the internal network. Trust me, I work in IT security.

I am sure if you tell the parents that accessing the reports will endanger their children they will re-evaluate there needs.

Find a dedicated IT security professional and work with them to find a safe way for parents to get this data. For example, an automated email list that will send reports to parents is a much safer solution. Another method is to utilize a DMZ.

I am sorry to be the one to say this it but if you are coming to for security solutions you are way out of your league.

If I found a hole like this in my kid's school network I would sue the school!
