Dear Forum,

Suddenly my firwall has started blocking uploads. For example I get send/receive error when using Outlook, yet when I use the setting "allow all" in the firewall i can send the message. Equally I use foxmarks with Firefox, it stops when trying to write to foxmarks yet when I change to "allow all" it works.

Any suggestions?

Hope you are keeping well,

All the Best

Bill Z

I haven't used the Sygate firewall in quite some time - but as I recall it will log all blocking actions in it's interface. I'd suggest browsing around the interface to see what the logs say.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Dear usasma,

Thanks for the suggestion. I gave up with Sygate and turned to Zone Alarm because of this problem. I decided that Sygate was old and that was possibly why I was getting these problems. I reinstalled and clicked appropriately when the question box came up. The problem persisted. I didn't in fact check the logs.

I gave up.

Sorry to have wasted your time.

Hope you are keeping well,

All the Best
