Hey guys I was wondering if someone could please answer me this.

I frequent a site called stickam where webcam streaming is done and i have noticed when my trend micro pro firewall is turned completely off i get a better stream. is it safe to have it off while i am surfing the net?

any feedback would be great

thanks :)

Is there any way you can add the stickam domain into your trusted list? So that your firewall is ignoring that site.

Just to cap off the conversation, it is unsafe to have your firewall off at any time.

Hi thanks I figured that too :)

Got it set too low and not fully off and it is better streaming in that site now like it was turned off. problem solved.

thanks for the feedback :)
