    i'm using the tiny firewall of the newest version,and wondering a problem:i have two accounts in my OS,one is of administrator and the other is of restricted user.Now,i want to use these two accounts with different sets of configurations in tiny.but,it seems unable to set the two accounts' configurations differently.they always keep the same.
    and in addition,i wish a more detailed tutorial about account use in tiny.
    thanks.

    Which version of Tiny are you using? If you are using Tiny Firewall Pro, you should be able to have different configs for different accounts. However, if you are using Tiny Firewall (without Pro), you would not be able to do that.

    I'm using the pro version 6.5.126,which supports different accounts.but there seems no differentiations among different accounts,that is,when i change one account's configuration,ohter's change as well,what's more,after i restore a backup from other computer,the account list then adds a new account which does not belong to my OS but to the one that the backup comes from.
    another thing is that,when i backup or restore rules,i can't see anything in the list.
    i'm still wondering whether all these are tiny's bugs of this version.

    The same thing happened on my computer too, and it caused strange behavior of Tiny on my computer. My guess is that Tiny somehow messed up those useless accounts with accounts in use, and the rules made for accounts in use were not properly stored or retrieved sometimes. I managed to get rid of those useless accounts. Once those useless accounts are removed, Tiny works perfectly again now.

    So you might want to remove those useless accounts, and see if that helps.
