Firewall Tutorials (Special section)

 

Did you know? If you access the Internet without having a firewall turned on, your computer could be attacked by hackers, viruses, spyware and adware.

You should at least have a software-based firewall installed on your computers and turned on, before making the connection to the Internet. The best Internet protection you can get for computers is a hardware-based firewall, also known as a router. Routers hide your computers from the Internet by implementing network address translation (NAT).

Firewalls provide excellent protection against many viruses, adware, spyware and malware programs, by preventing those types of malicious programs from being able to automatically download themselves from the Internet onto computers. Malicious programs are able to infect computers that do not have a firewall installed on them, by scanning the computers for open ports, and once an open port is found, the malicious program automatically downloads itself onto that computer through that open port. Firewalls block open ports and prevent malicious programs from being able to get into computers.

Did you know? Firewalls can block you from accessing your own network resources, including the Internet!

Firewalls are great, but if not properly configured, they can cause many problems on a home network. For instance, games that used to work fine begin to start crashing (freezing) the computer, problems sending and receiving e-mail begin to surface, problems viewing web pages (The page cannot be displayed... Cannot find server) start happening, other computers start disappearing from the network and shared folders/files can no longer be accessed ('Access denied',. '... is not accessible', and 'You might not have permission...' Contact the administrator..., etc.).

Access to the workgroup is being blocked.

If you are experiencing problems after installing one of the firewalls listed below, walkthrough the applicable tutorial and learn how to configure the firewall so that it does not cause any further problems on your computer or network of computers.
