I just began dabbling with Kerio Firewall 6.2.2 and I am having a few problems as well as some questions.
First and most important. Is it possible on a Windows XP home machine to prevent the firewall software "stop Kerio Winroute Firewall" from being disabled from the sys tray? I can lock down this computer really good, but its all in vain if all my users have to do is exit out of the program.
I have also been working with some issues and I was wondering if someone could help me understand.
This is a local machine on a private home network (cable modem directly connected). I use VNC and find that I cannot connect to this machine using the network name or even be able to browse the pc shared folders. The only way I found to do it is to make the source: any, the destination: any, the service: any and to allow. This basically defeates the purpose of having a firewall. What services do I have to allow to be able to browse this local network from another machine and to connect using VNC with the computer name (instead of IP).
I noticed too that Logmein is really slow to connect after the pc reboots. Is there something in the firewall that is delaying the connection. or is there a way I can speed it up.
I am going to be installing the follow programs and was wondering if there is anything I should know (port forwarding) or other hints users have found when installing similar software.
Webcam (probably through yahoo)
This firewall software seems really advanced, I only hope someone can help with these few qwarks as well as tell me if there is a way to prevent someone from turning the firewall off.
Thanks for any info.
