    I have already installed Ghost Securit Suits v1.11beta, including AppDefend and RegDefend. Is it necessary to have another firewall such as "Look'n'Stop 2.05p3"??
    Some friends told me LnS is a very good firewall and uses very little ressources. However, According to the test results posted in http://www.firewallleaktester.com/reward_stats.htm, it seems that they are same in certain aspects, and GSS is better than LnS. Does it mean that if GSS is installed, then LnS is not required??

    thanks

    rigth now GSS is not a full featured firewall.
    it allow you to allow/ block access to the net but does nto limit to what port/ip one can connect.

    THe next versions of gss are supposed to have better firewall capability.
    Also Jason have released a free rule based (not application based) firewall that can comliment GSs ability.

    Also you can disable the net control in GSS and use whatever firewall you wish. It's all about what you feel confortable in.

    Does GSS can block the access intention created by .DLL, when surfing the internet ??

    Curently it does not remote to the "originator" it ask you for permission by the last program in the chain. A dll per se cannot ask network permission without being part of a process.

    Yet some ppl can inject a dll into a network-accepted process and after that use it to gain access to the net. This step will be blocked by a dll injection warning and not a net access warning.

    Other possibility is to substitute a good dll by our specially crafted dll on the hardisk before the program load. There is nothing that can be done against that by gss for the moment.
