Newbe Need Firewall Help
I am using total security 2009, on XP pro. Opera (current ver).
I have used other independent firewalls like Sygate, Tiny....
With those I had an option to block all traffic. I see in the firewall setup that I can "DENY ALL".
But while in the deny all mode, I can still surf the web. I'm writting this while in that mode.
Could someone explain this to me?
Using sygate, I could block "all" traffic in and out.
I also use an APP called "Sam Spade". And I can ping other sites, trace etc... so that is getting in and out.
Just what does "DENY ALL" stop?
Thanks in advance, I appreciate it.
