Norton Personal Firewall 2006 is a component of several Symantec security products that include Norton Internet Security, Norton Personal Firewall, Norton AntiVirus, Symantec Client Security, and others.
|1. ||While you are installing the Commander, Norton Internet Security will automatically recognize the Commander attempting to access the network. It will prompt you with this Security Alert. |
|2. ||Leave the setting as “Always allow connections from this program on all ports.” |
|4. ||Norton Internet Security will also recognize that the Commander is attempting to access the Internet. It will prompt you with this Program Alert. |
|5. ||Leave the setting as “Allow always” and click OK. |
Validate the Setup
We expect these settings will configure the Commander completely for Norton 2006. However, we recommend that you follow these steps to ensure the settings are accurate:
|1. ||Open “Norton Internet Security” from the system tray (shown) or from the Start…All Programs menu. |
|2. ||On the Norton Internet Security management screen, click Personal Firewall. |
|3. ||Click the Configure button under the Personal Firewall section. |
|4. ||From the Personal Firewall page, click Programs tab. |
|5. ||In the Manual Program Control section, scroll down until you find the Commander. |
|6. ||Here you need to set the Internet Access to “Permit All”. |
NOTE: If you do NOT find the Commander in the Program list (rare), you will need to click the Add button. On the program dialog, enter the file name “c:Program FilesLogitechLogitech AlertLogitech Alert Commander.exe” and click Open.
If you do this step, you must now repeat the steps 5 – 7. You may also need to restart your PC.
You have now successfully configured Norton Firewall 2006.
Note: If you have more than one firewall application running on your PC, you need to disable or configure each one to run with the Commander.
