    I have installed the ESET Smart security and have been browsing the web, however It dose not show any firewall logs in the log files section. How do I know if its even blocking any thing?

    Hello Sting23ray,

    Your Personal Firewall Log will only display information when some form of traffic is blocked. All allowed traffic will not be displayed in the Firewall Log as this would flood the log with too much information. A good way to test your firewall is to simply place it in interactive mode. While this mode is active, you will be notified of any and all traffic attempting to pass the firewall.
