    Can anyone tell me the differences between these 2 settings in the Firewall of this Suite o_O The Medium Setting is:

    Suspicious TCP and UDP packets are discarded
    Flooding and Portscan are prevented.

    While the High Setting is:
    Computer is invisible on the network
    Connections from outside are blocked
    Flooding and portscan are prevented

    Correct me if I'm wrong,but I presume having it set to high would be more preventative, or is there little diference between the 2 :ninja:

    Heres what I found from the avira forum: High setting stealths your ports and Medium doesnt. Also the High setting conflicts with p2p.

    Well I just ran a check at pcflank.com and it passes the most rigorous tests at medium setting such as:

    Stealth Test
    Trojans Test
    Advanced Port Scanner
    Exploits test

    All these returned a perfect 100% Stealthed, so the Avira forum statement leaves something to be desired :ninja:
    All stealthed at ShieldsUp also.
