I use an account with administrator rights only to configure my Windows XP system. For normal use one of several user accounts are used. Recently I started using ESS firewall in interactive mode. From the account with Admin privileges all runs as expected. Problem: When running from an account with user access new rules can not be made, only access temporarily granted for a specific transfer. While this is not such a bad thing, as it prevents other users corrupting the firewall rules, it does create a maintenance problem, as some of the transfers temporarily allowed should be included +/- generalisation in the saved firewall rules. If the user allows the transfer, ESS appears to keep no record of it, making it difficult to add the rule later. Suggestion: Would it be possible to add the rules created by users without administrative privileges. Allowing / adding the most specific rule is preferred as then a rule could readily be edited to generalises it, and cover the full range expected transmissions (ie record ports and addresses).
