  • You do not need to change any firewall settings. If you do decide to install McAfee One Care must be uninstalled first.

  • When you first connect with your new network connection, the OneCare firewall will ask you if this is a Home or Work network or a Public network, unless you are running Vista, in which case the Network and Sharing center will ask for this.

    Do note that OneCare is at end of life.
