I have Norton running including firewall and internet worm protection. In case of almost every game, when you wanna go online it goes back to desktop and yer protection prog asks if the game may have permission to use the internet. You click YES, and yer done, it'll work and never ask again. BF2 did that the same way. BUT BF2SF doesn't, when i start updating server list all is fine, when it's done or i stop the update because i think i have enough the mess starts. It'll CtD about every 5 secs asking me for a server if it may use BF2.exe with my connection... UBERANNOYING !!! you click permit, go to game, before ya can click anything, BAM, back to desktop for the next one... Anyone else have this ? Any way to fix it ? How do i tell Norton BF2.exe may do whatever it wants ??? Remember, it's ONLY happening with this game, none of my other ones, might be something there, dunno, i'm a noob :s Someone please help me since this is so annoying you can hardly even ever GET on a server.

Proxy settings... Now there's something i heard a few times but i know absolutely nothing about. Can anyone tell me where to set that sort of stuff so it doesn't ask anymore ? (as stated, i'm a (network) noob). Cause this is annoying me to hell...

Make sure that when you "permit" the game to access the internet, you also click on the box that says: "Always use this action" - I think it says something along those lines.
