Hi,
I've got a problem with Internet Explorer : It can't reach any website.
But, i can use protocol ftp, or my mailbox (or trillian).
I've tried to stop my firewall, but it didn't change anythings...
I've tried to configure again my connection, but it didn't change anythings.
I've installed again IE, and windows without to formating, i've scanned my computer with 2 differents anti virus and nothings change...
I've tried to install Mozilla : it had worked 1day.
I don't know what to do...
My last solution is to fomat...
If one of us have got an Idea, that's use to be great!

regards

Julie
(i'm sorry for my english...)

Bonjour Julie!

What is the Windows you are using? If you use XP, try the “Restore” before the format, restore it a day before the problem, other than that its hard to pinpoint the problem, especially you said that you stopped the firewall, and Mozilla did work, but only for a day but stopped like IE?

Anybody else with an idea!

uninstall your firewall, even if u did disable your firewall some times that is not enough try to uninstall your firewall, reboot your pc and then try.

HTTP is port 80. Firewalls manage traffic on port 80. I didn't entirely understand your last question, but once you can overcome what your firewall blocks you get results.

Not sure if that helps answer the last question.

Hi,

I think the question was
"How can the firewall keep on blocking the port 80 while it was not running anymore ?"

I do not understand how a firewall can block a port without beeing runnig ! :)

when u install ur firewall, sure u have to configure correctly, otherwise it wont function properly.
now even if u disable your firewall the system configuration is not changed, but when u uninstall the firewall the system goes back to the default setting.

U mean that if you configure your fw to block port 80 then this port will remain blocked even if the fw is stopped ?

I believed that the fw process was blocking ports and if it was stopped all ports were open.

thanks Bluehat
