Vista Firewall: Allowing Programs Through

With some of the new programs you install on your computer from the Internet or through other media types, you may experience some difficulty or permission issues because of the Windows Vista firewall. Luckily though, there’s a workaround for it and you can start using it today. Let’s see what we’ve got!

To be able to allow programs through the Vista firewall, follow these directions:

1.) Go to Start, Control Panel.

2.) From the Control Panel, select Windows Firewall. You will then see this screen:



3.) Click on “Allow a program through the firewall” and this screen will appear:



4.) From that screen, you can readily check or uncheck the desired programs you’d like to allow through the firewall. Likewise, you can also check the option for whether or not you want to be notified when a new program is blocked by the Vista firewall.

That’s it. I hope you have found this tip to be helpful!
