    S-Wall contains content filtering, but on the default setting it appears that ALL content is being filtered/blocked,..... no web pages are displayed.

    S-Wall also as the ability to edit the "zones" for custom rulesets.

    Please note

    Those of you who have NOD32 installed.

    S-Wall makes alterations to the LSP. This is not a problem on installation, as NOD does change the settings for IMON,..... but,..... on uninstalling S-Wall all LSP entries for NOD32 are removed,... and NOD will fail to startup.

    Very nice,

    BTW, has anyone tested this firewall at firewallleaktester?


    Cheers,

    I am not sure if there is any reason to test this firewall against leaktests. The "free" version is a simple TCP/IP filter firewall,.. it would intercept applications direct internet access, but as for injection/memory mods, indirect internet access etc, no, there is no inclusion to intercept this kind of access that I could see.
    I can re-install later, to check, if this is something that really needs to be seen/confirmed
