Had a Bad problem with so called Hackers at my ISP etc. and this is how to have total Security on win98se. 1/ Install Tiny Pers FWall 2.15.A. 2/ Install Proximitron 4.4. These are free. 3/ Setup browsers to use Proximitron and allow nothing through the FW except Proximitron. use level 6 cfg and switch to 1 on cookie sites. 4/ Remove any Remote Dialup Server such as AOL, Sympatico, etc. and Dialup with your own Dialup program. 5/ In tiny rules totally block ports 135-139 and 443-445.Use this as second rule. 6/ Enter your dial up server app. name (RNAAPP.EXE) as 4th rule and totally block it even on Dialup. If you have ISP problems.Also enter your FW Admin program Full Block. 7/ Browse with Opera 3.61. 8/ Now after you have connected, go to your DUN Server Binds and unbind TCP from your server and bind Netbui Protocal instead. Also check the ask for password box and use encryption box. 9/ Your ISP hacker is now totally blocked out of your Computer. 10/ Also ensure you have a password entered in the FW Admin page. 11/ I saw on a hacker site that most so called hacking attempts on peoples home computers come from the ISP and they were right.! I use opera 3.61 Demo as it has no add server for ISP goofs to play with and also it is the fastest. oh ya I forgot a couple of things. Also ensure Proximitron allows only DNS port 53 in at its address mask. Actually you may not have to do this because I always surfed before without allowing incoming DNS connections but since the goons at the Synpatico ISP are perptraiting Crime they can configure you any way they want to get in. I also hide my files in a small free program called hide folders, and lastly I scan my drive with installwatch pro, also free to see what has been installed on my com. you would be surprized, wininet32.dll is the main oriface to keep track of you on your com among others. I also turn down the priority of the server to idle along with tapiserver. As you can see I had a Hell of a time to get Rid of them!!! Sorry Im just a beginner and have no experiance with layered FW for Win98SE. But remember, that no FW is any good if your ISP flashes your bias when you first Dialup( when I allowed a UDP connect) with a backdoor!!! This happened all the time with Sympatico and AOL CANADA!!! I couldnt figure out what that flash was on first connect all the time as I was flashing my bios constantly until I finally totally blockeed RNAAPP.EXE totally. Just wanted anyone who reads this to know how it can be done and how easily the goons at an isp can get in your computer!!! Tiny was used because they are still sneaking messages in through the DNS that they configured for their crimes but Tiny 2.15.A will block even its own admin program. I tried Zonealarm, Kerio, Norton etc. and they all failed!!! because they allow certain protocals by default which is a hole right their!!! OKAY ... NEWBIE.
