Default set of Firewall rules to start with?


#21

Hi, not sure it’s related, but I am new to setting up firewalls rules myself and thus on my new Balance 20 wasn’t sure where to start, so this may help. If you already have broadband access check out your anti virus package, I use MacAfee and under “Web & Email Protection”->Firewall->Port and System Services" you will see all the ports that MacAfee has open and a description of what each port is for, (Windows firewall also has some useful information at program level "Control Panel->Windows Firewall-Advanced Settings), if you want to see a more complete list of ports then this link at Wikipedia has a long list of what ports are typically used for what-> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers#Well-known_ports.

Hope that helps.
