I am running ESS beta 2 on Win XP SP2. Seems to be running pretty well so far My question is: What are the Firewall's inbound security capabilities? From the ESS help file: Does the ESS Firewall do any check for malformed packets or SPI? Will it stealth ports? I can't run a shields up test as I am behind a router with a firewall here and can't connect without it. Thanks for any comments.
