Hi, I'm having this strange problem w/ my Eset Firewall. When I'm using Interactive Mode, the pop-up screen for incoming/outbound connection seem always appear so late that the application asking for the connection already response w/ "time out". When I changed to ESS 5 the problem still continue (so I assumed that the problem is w/ my notebook not the ESS). I'm running Windows XP Professional SP 2 on my notebook btw. Does any1 ever has this kind of problem?? Thx for the reply.
