Hello everyone
Last month i got sify broadband connection. Since I got the connection, i am experiencing many hack attempts. Most of the are form the neighborhood and all of them are high rated.
What is your experience in this regard? :( :angry:

I use ZoneAlarm. I've had about 16,000 highrated intrusions since I installed it a few months back.

it considers a ping a hack attempt. i had my PC without a firewall for 3 months. does not seem to have missing anything on my PC. but who knows... better careful than sorry. get zonealarm and block anything that looks suspicious.

Hey could anyone help me run a firewall(kerio) with the broadband client? Unless I temporarily disable the firewall before connecting, the connection breaks off after a while ....Thanks ...BTW, as for security, try this, in your firewall, enable the adapter subnet as a "trusted" zone, and open Network Neighborhood ... you see all users who are connected, and you can even enter some ppls computers! :-/

hmm... not much problems with zone alarm. maybe add the sify ips in trusted zone which try to ping you back! i added a ip from sify mumbai into my zonealarm.

I saw that ... I do use a firewall, but have configured it to treat the local network as safe ... the only way it(firewall) would run. BTW, I can not see my own comp in the network, but can other users?

firewall stops me entering their system. watching the systems depend upon their network settings. file and printer sharing settings exactly.
