    Interesting.  I had missed that one, not being an AOL user.

    Not quite sure about the ZoneLabs response, however.  While, it's undoubtedly technically true; it doesn't seem to address the fundamental issue of whether ZA/ZAP can firewall a VPN connection once it's been authorized.  Not only would that require full-fledged Stateful Packet Inspection (as opposed to just the headers), ZoneLabs would have to be maintaining that it has a capability to decode the encrypted package.  And if ZA/ZAP can decode the encrypted package, well, then ....  :D
