Solved: Hardware firewall - did I luck out

716 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  JohnWill

My VOIP company sent me a router/adapter. I installed using their settings. Nothing more.

Since then Zone Alarm has not recorded any intrusions so I guess they are being caught at router/adapter.

I always thought a hardware firewall required a techno geek and the changing of lots of settings to install.

Is it normal that a nerd setting up a VOIP would accidentally do the job? I'm concerned that I may have gummed something up and creeps are slipping by ZA because of something I didn't know to do with the router/adapter.

Any calming words will be appreciated.

Thanks John.

Since I have never, don't know even what it means, to "forward ports from the outside" I guess I am secure. I appreciate your answer.
