    On the search box on the start screen of your Dell notebook, you have to type in ‘firewall’ to proceed with the search. From the results that are listed, you need to choose the ‘Windows Firewall’ option. This will open the windows XP firewall application on your Dell notebook. After that the option labeled ‘Turn Windows Firewall on or off’ has to be selected. Then you can proceed to the Firewall Settings window on the screen. There you must opt for the option labeled ‘on’. Finally the option named ‘ok’ has to be selected to apply the changes.

    1.
    Turn on your computer and wait for the desktop to load. Click the "Start" menu and select "Control Panel." Select "Security Center" and double-click on "Windows Firewall." Click on "Allow a program through Windows Firewall" and click "Continue."



    2
    Select the "Exceptions" tab under "Windows Firewall Settings." Scroll through the programs and ports to see if the program you want to add an exception for is in the list. Click on the program to add an exception to allow the program through the firewall. Select "Apply" to add the exception to the firewall settings.


    3
    Add a program that is not in the list. Click "Add Program" to enable an email program access through the firewall. Select "Add Program" for email software, such as Microsoft Outlook. Select "Browse" to search your computer for the program. Click on the program and click "Open." Click "OK" to add the exception to the Windows Firewall.
