Hi,
I have McAfee Desktop firewall 8.5 on my Windows XP pro system,
defined a Rule to block all ip protocolls in both directions and
activated the firewall.

But I still can go to the internet with tghe browser and the activity
protocol of the firewall says
"Allowed ..." to all outgoing connections.

What's wrong with the firewall ?

Regards
Pep

Obviously it does not do what it is advertised to do. A very common
problem with so called personal firewalls.

Got it,

have to deactivate and activate the network connection as well after
firewall is activated.
