    I use an account with administrator rights only to configure my Windows XP system.
    For normal use one of several user accounts are used.

    Recently I started using ESS firewall in interactive mode.
    From the account with Admin privileges all runs as expected.

    When running from an account with user access new rules can not be made, only access temporarily granted for a specific transfer.
    While this is not such a bad thing, as it prevents other users corrupting the firewall rules, it does create a maintenance problem, as some of the transfers temporarily allowed should be included +/- generalisation in the saved firewall rules. If the user allows the transfer, ESS appears to keep no record of it, making it difficult to add the rule later.

    Would it be possible to add the rules created by users without administrative privileges. Allowing / adding the most specific rule is preferred as then a rule could readily be edited to generalises it, and cover the full range expected transmissions (ie record ports and addresses).
