Firewall

Hello,

 

I am new with f-secure and i see that it uses windows firewall.

I would like to know if i can use another firewal (comodo or else) or if windows firewall is the only one that can be used with f-secure internet security.

 

Thanks.

Hi molomolo,

It is not recommended to have 2 firewalls running at the same time like what Rusli suggested. Please read this article for more details of new F-Secure firewall functionality in F-Secure Internet Security 2013.

Thanks.

Hi

 

If you are using just the F-Secure Antivirus. You can use other firewall such as Comodo.

 

But if you are using the F-Secure Internet Security 2013. I'm afraid you can't. Because of Deep Guard is controlling the Windows Firewall protection layering.

Hi molomolo,

Well, to say plainly, what Internet Security 2013 does is, that it adds its own details to Windows Firewall...
