Computer modems/firewalls
    #3771630 - 02/12/05 07:05 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I don't know what UBBCode is, but I'll find out. Interesting.
I am new and an old fart trying to learn a bit of new logic.
I have several questions, but the first will find who is valid.
If a firewall is so important; it is; why does a 56k modem override
it? There's a major systematic problem in this logic, really. I can
imagine Broadband and/or DSL. (always open.) Can someone reasonably and honestly answer that question?

UBB Code is kind of a simplified HTML, but not actually HTML. These forums use UBB code, for example. Sorry, that's all I know about it, so maybe someone else can explain it to you better.

As to modems and firewalls, it's never been my experience that a firewall was overridden by the modem, although it's been years since I've used dial-up. Are you sure this is what's happening? Be that as it may, having a good firewall is never a bad idea.

Hope that helps somewhat...

UBB = ultimate bullitin board ...so the UBBCode is just special code that this board can interpret and will get changed into html (beats letting the user put in their own BS html)

56k modem doesnt override your firewall, just make sure you have it set up properly

Wow, thanks. I have the free Zone Alarm. There doesn't appear, to me,
that I can control whether to allow modem access or not. It appears, to me, to be a standard given. Right now, I control the phone line by just,
unplugging it. (easy access) Where I live, Dsl doesn't exist and
broadband just cost too much or rather I'm not willing to pay it. Wouldn't use the Internet enough to justify the cost.
