    Hi

    Just installed LnS under W7 Ultimate for a trial.
    So far it works but question is:
    does the W7 Firewall Service MpsSvc have to stay active,
    or may I deactivate it?

    You should turn it off, no need to have yet another packet filter to maintain. ;)

    It doesn't have to stay on and you can deactivate it but I leave it on. The 2 don't conflict

    Thank you Phant0m and Cudni for answering

    Not sure if the W7 FW will use additional resources.
    Both may not conflict in running parallel,
    but does one eventually override the rules of the other?

    Guess I deact the W7 FW and follow Phant0m's advice.

    No, when both are active, a packet is accepted only and only if both rulesets accept it.
