Firewalls

If you have been using the Internet for any length of time, and especially if you work at a larger company and browse the Web while you are at work, you have probably heard the term firewall used. For example, you often hear people in companies say things like, "I can't use that site because they won't let it through the firewall."

If you have a fast Internet connection into your home (either a DSL connection or a cable modem), you may have found yourself hearing about firewalls for your home network as well. It turns out that a small home network has many of the same security issues that a large corporate network does. You can use a firewall to protect your home network and family from offensive Web sites and potential hackers.

Basically, a firewall is a barrier to keep destructive forces away from your property. In fact, that's why its called a firewall. Its job is similar to a physical firewall that keeps a fire from spreading from one area to the next.

Disable Firewalls

Listed below are some of the most common firewalls with instructions on how to turn them off. Firewalls that are not listed should follow similar procedures. You can use the same procedure to turn the firewall back on.

Personal Firewalls
Norton Personal Firewall
Windows Firewall (applies to users who have Windows XP Service Pack 2)
Zone Alarm
Kerio Personal Firewall
INVISUS Firewall

Network Firewalls
If you are accessing the internet in an office or computer lab you may not have access to change these settings and will need a network administrator to give you access.
