firewall #1
HI to all

I joined the site while i was at work on nights sent a few posts etc and thought the site absolutley brilliant. when i got home tried to send a few more posts and they wouldnt go through, nor could i update my account or send pm's.

Now if this gets through the only difference is that i have turned off my norton internet security, which i dont really want to have to do every time i come on this site, does anyone know of a way round this??

regards to one and all

How to pass referer information to specific Web pages in Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2003

When you click a Web page, your browser notes the current page that you are on and sends that information to the server of the new Web page. This way,the server for the new Web page knows the last Web page that you viewed. For example, if you are on www.symantec.com and click ww.microsoft.com, the browser sends www.microsoft.com the information that you are currently viewing www.symantec.com. If you block referer information, the server of the page you are requesting to see does not know what page you saw last. By default, Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton Personal Firewall (NPF)blocks this information. However, some Web pages require this information before allowing you to view the page. If you need to allow referer information to pass to a particular Web page, you must create a rule for it.


To create a rule:

1. Open NIS or NPF.
2. Click Options.
3. Click Internet Security or Personal Firewall. This step is not always
needed.
4. Click the Web Content tab.
5. Click Add Site. A new site/domain box appears. Enter the name of the site
that you want to receive the referer information and click OK. In this
example, it will be www.fishkeeping.co.uk
6. The site name appears in the left frame of the Options window.
7. Click the name of the new site.
8. Click the Global Settings tab.
9. In the "Information about visited sites" section, uncheck "Use default
settings".
10. Click Permit.

Re: firewall how to solve problem.... #3
I have the exact same problem and just have to disable the Norton Firewall when i click submit. It only happens on this site, not on other forums i browse
Will have a go at amending my settings tonight!
