    Firewall does not allow me to view pages

    I recently installed Sygate Personal Firewall. After the install had finished, I could not access any web pages. I was connected to the Internet at the tim.

    I heard something about you have to allow a certain type of traffic?

    If anyone uses personal firewall and knows how to fix this could you help me out?

    Thanks in advance

    Have you allowed port 80 and your browsers to have unlimited access to the internet?

    My browsers do, but port 80? I guess not.

    How do I give it unlimited access?

    Port 80 is HTTP port of which your browsers obtain the net (I think)....most firewalls should recognise it and allow it full access in/out automatically.
