    Does anybody know the difference between the following settings?

    Advanced setup > Personal Firewall > System Integration > Personal firewall is completely disabled

    and

    Advanced setup > Personal Firewall > System Integration > Personal firewall is inactive

    Because, here's the thing: I have a client machine where firewall is completely disabled, yet I cannot VNC onto it (VNC uses port 5900).

    One would think if the firewall is off, the firewall is off. Am I wrong here?

    Thanks,
    JJJ

    Hello JoeyJoeJoe,

    The following is taken from clicking the question mark in the top right of the advanced setup window:

    Thanks. I wasn't in the client window. I was in the policy editor. No description there, though I don't think it would kill ESET to include it, eh?

    Thanks,
    JJJ
