I recently switched ISP, from cable to adsl. Now the log is always empty. What's that all about?
Any new hardware with this switch such as a router that may be blocking inbound traffic before LnS sees it?
The new modem seems to have a built-in firewall. Perhaps this is blocking everything?
Anyway the current situation is very awkward.
Try turning off ther f/w in the router. If you can, you should see the log filling up in LnS.
I have LnS behind a hardware f/w-router and the LnS log goes extremely quiet to the point you feel it's not working!
In fact, after having to reinstall Windows it's clear inbound filtering indeed isn't working at all. I'm not very good at (well, not good at all) at creating rules, so I depend on the alerts in the log to start with. Certainly for some of the programs I always use.
Well, not this time. After allowing a\any program access to the internet (outbound filtering is working OK), it can do whatever it wants to. Without any rules for incoming traffic.
At the moment allowing outbound=allowing inbound. This is scary.
Does this mean the door is wide open for other traffic as well? The ShieldsUp test (grc.com) doesn't show any open ports (because of the modem with build-in firewall?).
I hadn't noticed this before. LnS reports: PC status=not connected and IP address 0.0.0.0
