    Re: Outpost Firewall pro rules , please help

    I would love to control firefox, but my firewall (Norton NIS 2003) has it set for outbound & inbound in the same field.

    Example (firefox <-> in/out traffic in a single line)

    How can I seperate them so I can control them seperately?? This is one of my biggest pet peves i have with Norton. On some programs, like firefox, it does this. go figure.....

    You can always modify the automatic rule(s) or create your own custom rules. You might find the following helpful: Customizing AtGuard/NIS Rules.

    Thanks "Crazy M".. When I got home, I opened up NIS2003 Firewall Progam control and noticed i had 5 other (firefoxs)... Strange, I deleted all of them and started firefox.exe again. This time, Norton Asked me what I wanted to do. I set up my Connection the way I wanted (manually) and now I have it my way.

    I also noticed I had duplicates of many programs in there, so needless to say, I did a little house cleaning..

    The duplicate app entry thing seems to be a bug in Norton Personal Firewall 2003 (at least) and perhaps is still there in the newer versions too, not sure. I would think it's pretty harmless, except if you modify one of the rules for an app, then how will you know which one Norton is using?
