Firewall Blocks access to internet sites & e-mail

  Actor One 22:37 23 Feb 2004

My NetDefense firewall (part of soon to upgraded Systemsuite 4) has suddenly decided to block all access to any sites including my mail server, as soon as I switch the Firewall off I cam access them, I have looked at all the settings and have changed nothing, if I have to switch the firewall off every time I access the internet, it somehow defeats the object of having one

Any suggestions?. Will be replacing Systemsuite 4 with a 5 Upgrade soon, so that may solve the problem....(:-(

Try ZoneAlarm Free version

Doesn`t resolve the issue of why it does it though, I could disable it, and use zone alarm, but I shouldn`t really have to as it has never done this before, I`m trying to find out if any programme I`ve installed has caused it, my main culprit so far is Redshift 5 as I had no problem before.....though why it should be begs the question.

Thanks though woodchip for your suggestion will keep it in mind.

Redshift 5 rings a bell from another thread, but I can't find it as there are so many on firewalls.

Have corrected the problem by uninstalling completely SystemSuite 4 then re-installing it, as I`m getting the SystemSuite 5 upgrade disc any day now I`ll say this problem is solved, though what caused it is still a mystery. It could be also Quicktime Player which came with Redshift 5, that caused a problem with by SB Audigy Creative Sound card by distorting all the sound.....another head-scratch..Thanks again...

I keep getting messages from one alarm saying it has blocked internet access from... and then gives me an address. I have tried googling these but not come up with anything. Is there any way I can find out who it is, or would you suggest I dont bother?

This is a very old thread, I started in Feb.2004, resolved long ago, many apologies for not closing it down earlier, but thanks to VoG for the sites, very handy.
