Probably in the wrong place (really sorry if I am)
I've downloaded Shareaza instead of Limewire (was told this was spyware bundled.... obviously not a good thing I thought.) To get the best out of Shareaza I need to configure my firewall. On the help page I was advised to lower firewall to medium > programs > add > open shareaza.exe >click on blue question mark and then click allow. (I did this up until blue question mark cos there wasn't one so couldn't carry on) Another way of confiiguring firewall is to go to firewall cllick advanced and allow uncommon protocols at high security, It said this "This should allow Shareaza to work while keeping your computer stealthed except or course for the ports that Shareaza is using.....this at least stealths ports such as 25 & 80 which can be common attack points."
Is it safe to do it this way?? I'm really sorry but I haven't a clue when it comes to ports and stuff. They kept going on about TCP and UDP but I aint gotta clue. I have looked on the help pages and even posted something on the forums but no one has helped me would really appreciate any help.
Thanks, Lindy x
