      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

If you have never used a 'rules-based' firewall, you will have to do some research regarding setting it up. If you are using Ver 4.xxx (the newest version) of the Kerio firewall, you should disable the pre-defined Filter Packet Rules, and enter your own. There are a few excellent tutorials on how to do this. Look for the "Kerio FAQ" here:

Many of us prefer 2.15, nice interface and very easy rule making.

When it pops up a box, just tell it to make a rule. Allow if you know what the thing is and want it to access the net, otherwise select Block for the rule. When you get more experienced with it, right-click icon, select Administration and then click Advanced, and you can edit your rules to make them more specific.

You do have to understand some basic concepts about TCP/Ip though, otherwise you will be bothered constantly by permission popups (by setting too strict rules e.g. failing to recognise the concept of ephemeral versus service ports)), or you will end up using extreme wide rules that you might as well be using a application based firewall like ZA free,
