    Is it a wise thing to allow NAV 2001 poproxy.EXE, Norton AV Utility or any other AV to access the net when collecting E-Mails or is it ideal not to let anything act as a server. current config Win 98 x1 SE alway's on connection.

    Many Thanks

    The NAV2001 poproxy is what allows for the scanning of email. If you wish to keep that functionality it will have to be allowed outbound through the firewall to remote service/port 25 (SMTP) & 110 (POP3).

    As for acting as a server (allow inbound connections), you should not allow inbound from the internet. The poproxy will need to listen/allow for inbound/outbound on localhost (your own system) and this is usually accomplished with loopback rules or what some may refer to as allow local server.
