Firewalls is very useful things for internet security problems for data transmission or other purpose but some times firewalls have some problems which are discussed in this research paper. Software firewalls that only block inwards traffic such as the Windows XP default firewall are useless at detecting programs on your system that are trying to communicate without your knowledge. Configuring a firewall can be difficult if you want maximum security and functionality. Software firewalls need to be enabled during the bootup process just after network connections enabled and disabled just before the network connection is closed. Vanilla Windows XP failed to do this, by not switched on its default firewall by default, and then only switched it on late in the bootup process. Some of us watched the ensuring virus infection disaster from safer sidelines. Some say you only need a hardware firewall. The problem is that few hardware firewalls will stop outward traffic from an unwanted program. Also they do not protect you if you bypass them via say a dial up modem when your broadband connection goes down. This is potentially particularly problematical if you have Windows file or printing sharing enabled as computers out there are testing all the time for this wonderful exploitable back door into a computer system.
