Question Firewall Permissions

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all, I've been trying to get BBWeather running on my 8700c. I accidentally hit deny when I first ran it, and now it comes back with a permission denied. I deactivated my firewall and it works fine. The question I have is if there is a way to change the permissions on the firewall. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app a few times, but still doesn't change anything. I'm thinking maybe some modules are being left behind in the uninstall and they are reactivated each time I reinstall?? Is there a great need for the firewall, I feel safer having it on, but is it really that much safer? Any info would be great. Thanks.

Have you tried this?:

Go to Options >> Advanced Options >> Applications

Highlight BBWeather and edit permissions for each module???

I did try that and I edited each of the modules independently so that it would allow BBWeather to communicate through the firewall. It still denies access.

The other thing I'm thinking is that to uninstall it I go to Options >> Advanced >>Apps >> Delete. Is this the most effective way to delete an app or am I skipping a step here somewhere?

Have you tried a HARD REBOOT (pull battery and leave out for about 30 sec) after deleting it?????

Lunk,

How vital is the firewall to the BB's overall security? Is it as important as one would think?

In my opinion.... NO for the casual user... It all depends on what you are doing on it...

Well I'm a college student so I mostly use it for the browser and calendar ect. But I do have some important info stored on it, such as account numbers and I check my bank balances and such. What you think?
