a) Sorry that I didn't take screenshots of this, at the time. b) But... and, as best as I can recall at the moment, my question is this: Sygate security log mentions router IP address here and there, and it being blocked at times. Well, while (hardware firewall aka) the router is designed to keep the poachers-bad guys out, I'd guess/assume (for good or ill), that on the other hand the router and PC have to "commune together" for the main part in order to function properly. How do I better judge exactly what's being blocked? As the query indicates, you can tell that I'm not really up on all this but I would like to learn more/better "smarts" on this, so I can tell what works/doesn't, and so on. Don't want one firewall blocking the other, at wrong time, or not doing what it should when it should. Many thanks, for info/help.
