Thread: Norton Firewall 2002

  1. #1
    hi

    im havin a prob when it comes to certain websites, they require my firewall to be disabled to access stuff (cd covers and certain progs)

    Ive been to a website and a screen came up when it tryed to show a cd cover saying that i need to tell my firewall to allow "http refferer" i have looked in the release notes and the like and i have been to symatec but i cant find anything

    i know some peeps dont like norton firewall but im happy with it so does anyone know what i do bcause i dont want to change it

    thanx

    I have a few sites that need to have the referrer permitted. I have to manually add their site so I can see all the content. u have more control that way.

    in order to add the referrer to that site

    open firewall > options > firewall(internet security) > web content > add the site you want > then find the site in the list > untick information about visited sites (that's what the referrer does) and click on permit.

    click ok and then refresh the site. Should be all you have to do...some sites also need ads enabled...even though no ads are shown. All sites are different, you might have to play around...let me know if that works for that site.
