Norton Personal Firewall 2000 2.0 is very discreet and doesn’t require a lot of concentration to be used. After installing it when you’ll reboot the computer a small Firewall earth icon appears in the tray notification area of Windows. When you double click on this icon the Norton Personal Firewall main window appears : as you can see it’s fully integrated with Norton SystemWorks 2000 due to its full support of the new Norton SymMetry technology.

The user interface of Personal Firewall is almost clear and useful enough for all kind of users. Now you should set your privacy and security levels at your convenience. Be careful if you set this levels to High you’ll be prompted each time you visit a web site to create new firewall rules. The medium settings is best compromise between security and ease of use. Note that the privacy settings allows you to enter sensible information like your credit card number, your phone number and more to make sure this data won’t be sent on the net without your approval: so with Personal Firewall if you type on a website form your phone number an alert message will tell you that you’re about to send it over the net (notice that confidential data cannot be protected on SSL websites). The status tab of Personal Firewall reports quickly all the blocked and allowed information that Personal Firewall monitors for every category. A click on the arrow next to each category will show you exactly what was blocked or allowed.

How it works?

In fact Norton Personal Firewall 2000 2.0 provides a barrier, named a firewall between your computer and the Internet. It’s a filter that blocks or enable connections and data transfers in both directions. This firewall will protect users’ data and privacy. Each time you visit a new website, Norton Personal Firewall will automatically create firewall rules but you can also create your own security rules.


What it does

Norton Personal Firewall 2000 2.0 will block your privacy information that you don’t want to share such as your email address, your postal address, your phone number and it’ll prevent other users to give private information without your authorization such as your Credit Card number. It really works since for example if a website form asks you your phone number and if you type it when NIS is running, NIS will ask you if you want to send this confidential data.
Norton Personal Firewall can even block Cookies, but with this feature enabled a lot of websites will refuse to work, as they require a cookie to save users preferences… (Cookies can be better tracked with Norton CleanSweep 2000).
Your safety is the most important thing so Norton Personal Firewall 2000 2.0 protects you from malicious internet ActiveX controls or Java applets by monitoring them and eventually asking you if you want to run these applets each time you visit a website that uses this technology. But once again if this feature is enabled your Internet experience won’t be convenient.

By blocking all the Internet ports, Norton Personal Firewall will protect you from hackers’ attacks. When you’re attacked you’ll receive an ALERT message telling you that someone is trying to hack your computer and the tray icon of NIS will blink. This feature is really useful for high speed connection users: xDSL, cable… It also blocks Back Orifice Trojan attacks. Note that the firewall now recognizes the most current Internet installed software and configures itself automatically by creating rules for this software.
