Configure xp for minimal internet traffic
Posted on 2006-04-10
I am getting umts (3G) for my computer, i have to pay half a euro pr. MB.
What is the best/ most easy way to configure my laptop so that the internet traficc wil be at a minimum, i need ability to search for info on the internet and download pdf, drivers. Nice to have the ability to reach my mail either internet or software.
I also connect my laptop to a dsl connection and want standard settings for this..
I could use the tcp/ip protocol and only allow ports tcp 80-85? outgoing on the 3g connection.?
I could use a new account that is configured for little internet traficc..?
I could use software?
I could use my firewall (ez armour (modified zone alarm)), different setting for differrent account or easy switch configuration?
