    A question came up in the Update McAfee Security Center and firewall settings to allow Firefox access to the Internet article discussion forum on whether to archive that article, since it appears to be outdated.

    This article links to it, under "Configuring firewalls". I suggested finding a McAfee document to link to instead, since this article already links to external sources for Avira and Trend Micro firewall configuration.

    Is this article OK? https://service.mcafee.com/faqdocument.aspx?id=TS100813 Make a redirect?

    That mcafee article looks fine but we shouldn't try to redirect this article there (if that's even possible). If we decide that this article should be archived (hopefully Joni or others will weigh in) then we should change the McAfee link in the Configure firewalls so that Firefox can access the Internet article, so that it goes to McAfee's document.

    The McAfee link has been changed, to link to https://service.mcafee.com/faqdocument.aspx?id=TS100813 (Thanks, Joni)
