    Hi, does anyone know how to do this? im using eset smart security 3. something and when i add them to personal firewall>configure rules and zones and add them to the rules with protocol TCP & UDP it doesnt seem to be blocking them.

    I want to be able to download off them but dont want them to download/see me. What do i need to configure as i'm sure it possible.

    Thanks.

    There's no way you can connect to other computer without them "seeing" you.

    Cant u just block their ip for them going in, but still allow access for out?

    Say they can see my files, as long as they cant open them/access them that's okay.

    edit: i mean doesn't matter if they can see me connected to them, i just want to block them from accessing my files but i can still connect to them.

    Unless your system is compromised, they can't access your files unless you actively enabled some sort of filesharing.

    Blocking access in that case might be possible, but depends on the filesharing protocol.

    Hello,

    If your computer connects to another computer on the Internet then it will receive the IP address of your public network connection, otherwise it would not know where to the data back your computer is requesting.

    If you are you trying to mask your Internet connection so that the remote computer cannot see your public IP address then you will need to use an anonymization service.

    ESET does not provide this type of service.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
