I'm using ESET Smart Security 3.0.414.0 (RC1) on Windows XP Home SP2, Windows Firewall is disabled. I've noticed that firewall is missing some outbound connections when set to interactive mode. For instance I can succesfully recieve mail by The Bat! and recieve no prompts from the firewall, although those connections are listed in Protection Status->Personal firewall and there are NO rules defined for this application. In policy-based mode firewall acts correctly disabling traffic for The Bat!. Also Smart Security firewall doesn't do anything when my network configuration changes (network mask and ip changes, new network adapters added), is that ok?
