    I have just found that windows firewall can be set to filter inbound/outbound connections. What I have read is, it can be difficult to set. Your views on this would be appreciated.

    Setting outbound filters is not terribly hard to do mechanically but is confusing to figure out exactly what you are doing.

    Hey Jude
    Thanks Hey Jude, I think I'll give it a miss as configuring it would be as hard as solving a 'Rubik Cube' one handed.
    P.S. any reason why I dont get notification of replys via email?
