- Now, you can configure the connection blocking option in the Norton product.

- Click Advanced-->Firewall.
- Locate the Settings icon in the Connection Blocking section. Choose the network location from the Editing Settings menu.
- The View options include Applications, Services/Ports, Zones, and All.
- The Applications option is to configure connection blocking for the applications installed on your computer. ‘Services/Ports’ is to set up connection blocking for the computer’s services & ports. ‘Zones’ is to configure connection blocking for a specific IP address. You need to configure the connection blocking settings for applications, ports, services, and zones according to priority levels.
- The tabs such as Incoming, Outgoing, and Incoming & Outgoing are displayed. Choose the appropriate tab. For example, if you need to configure connection blocking for outgoing connections, choose Outgoing.
- The other connection blocking preferences can be set in the Action pop-up menu. The different options that are available here include Logging and notification settings, Advanced settings, Reset to defaults which are self-explanatory. After setting the connection blocking preferences, click Done.
