search around the norton control's there should be a tab or button for the firewall and from there you will need the password (if you have one) then there should be a tab for settings, search for your program and unblock it. This is close to right from what I can remember of Norton (I got ZoneAlarm and AGV when I had to System restore cuz the Norton files were out of date).

PS: If you are planning to dump Norton use a 3rd party uninstaller both Windoze and Norton leave traces of it on your computer so as It'll mess you up. Yeah Missing .DLL's are a pain

I have Norton (2004) so I am not sure if it is the same-but on mine you open the Personal Firewall window
then double-click on "personal firewall"
this opens seperate window-click on tab at top that says "programs"
at bottom of page is "program control rules"
after this loads, it will show all the decisions you have made-you can either remove and allow when you reopen or modify there to allow

While there are other good IS programs, Norton is still one of the better and I continue to use it because in the almost 6 years that I have had it, I have not had an intrusion that has not been blocked by Norton.

Hope the above works for you.
