It would be nice if firewalls logged whenever a packet is ignored instead of blocked. Online scans that tests firewalls usually show three settings on any given scanned port. Port is Open Port is Closed Port is Stealthed The firewall accepted, blocked, or ignored the test packets sent. On my current firewall it shows everything as blocked or accepted. Is there any firewall which logs when a packet has been ignored? I think future releases of firewalls should show exactly what it did with the packet sent for inbound traffic instead of combining block to mean block and ignored. If I set my Zone Alarm to Medium security and run Steve Gibson's port tester it shows all my ports are closed. Zone Alarm records blocked for those packets. If I set my Zone Alarm to High security and run this same test it shows all my ports are stealthed. Again Zone Alarm records these packets blocked. See where I'm going with this?
