    Hi All

    Can someone tell me how (if possible) i can block web begs with my firewall? I am currently using NPF and some of the options are to 'block or permit' the following:

    1. Info about my browser

    2. Info about visited sites

    3. Animated Images

    4. Scripts

    5. Flash Animation

    Which items would you recommend i check to block web bugs (if any)? If you recommend something could you briefly explain why? Thanks for your help.

    Thanks Bigc73542

    I took a look at that link and it says to use the ad blocking feature in NIS which it says is not available in NPF and that will block web bugs. Funny because it is in my version (NPF 2003). Must be a bit outdated. But thanks for the info Bigc very helpful.
