What is a firewall and why might it prevent me from accessing Moodle?

A firewall protects a computer, or computer network, from access by unauthorized parties.

If you are having problems accessing Moodle from home or work then it is possible that your firewall’s configuration is causing a problem. Please consult your antivirus documentation if at home, or your network administrator in your place of work.

If the problem persists, please email any member of the Moodle team at moodle@wit.ie or by telephone on 051-834114.
