I think the firewall of ess should be smarter than how it is now. As a pc user, everytime when ess shows a in/out come warning dialog to me, people would be confuse. Because its firewall can't give enough suggestion to the user. There's few thing that we can do about that. check the programe's name and its signature. but that is not the word "smart" meaning for. I hope ess can find what the good program do and let it be and detect what bad programs do and kill it with its antivirus component.
