There're any way to disable de Eset Smart Security Firewall?
Yes , using the UI -> Setup section.
Though , I don't recommend doing this unless you want hacker/threat visitation
What do you mean with "UI" (Excuse my ignorance )
I prefer to disable until I see the manual, while I use the windows firewall because I know it.
UI = User Interface
Using ESET Smart Security's firewall in Automatic mode is most preferable for you . If you still don't trust ESS's firewall , test it in PC-Flank's web site (Stealth test , Advanced Port scanner test)
really I don't trust in Windows Firewall , but I don't have time right now to test the eset firewall, and I would like to test it with more time (I want to understand it). However I will try what you say, to turn on in automatic mode
thanks and regards!
The Stealth test is only 1
The Advanced port scanner tests are average 4
Total 5 tests on PC-Flank.com
Each test takes 1 minute , so total 5 minutes max to ensure yourself that it is working
Don't you have to turn off the NAT function of your router to make this a valid test?
If you are behind the router , of course you'll test the router and the NAT should block these . While I test , I am always without the router/NAT device.
