    I'm having big problems getting MioNet to work, and I think I've identified it as a problem with my firewall. The difficulty now is that I don't know what firewall I've got, so I can't change its settings or disable it. I can't see anything in the Add or Remove Programs list that looks relevant. I can't see any icon in the bottom right of the screen that looks relevant either.

    I have Windows XP. The Windows Firewall is turned off. I have Norman anti-virus, which as far as I can tell doesn't feature a firewall. The Windows Security Center tells me that I have a firewall up and running, but it won't tell me what it is. I have tried running Belarc Advisor and it doesn't give any firewall information. I've also run Active Security Monitor. It tells me that I have multiple firewalls running, and that this is a bad idea, but it won't tell me what they are (it just says I should open up the programs and turn them off). This is even with the Windows Firewall turned off!

    Do any of these look like firewalls? Is there any other way to find out what firewall is active? Why doesn't the Windows Security Center provide this information? What were they thinking? Help!

    Do you have an IBM computer? There are three references in your processes list to 'Internet Security Systems Inc' which is an IBM subsiduary whose products could include firewalls,(although they seem to be intended for commercial users); http://www-935.ibm.com/services/us/index.wss/offerfamily/iss/a1029097

    Doing an 'All Files and Folders' search against International Security Systems may provide some further information.

    Thanks for the help, guys. Yes, I think Black Ice is the culprit, but it also seems to be impossible to disable or change the settings for it. My computer is actually Fujitsu, not IBM, but there you go.

    Fortunately, though, I managed to resolve the problem by simply giving upon MioNet altogether - it turns out that I didn't actually need it at all for what I was trying to do, thankfully.
