    I went to a Firewall testing site and received the message: "Some firewalls permanently block an IP address if it detects a scan. You'll want to temporarily disable this autoblock feature (not the firewall) or you'll receive incorrect results."

    Does LooknStop has this autoblock feature? Thank you.

    No it does not.
    What will kick in in case of attack is the Anti-Flood' option which is useful to limit the number of lines in the log when same identical attacks occur at the same time

    I stand corrected as the anti flood option is not activated automatically.
    You will find it the option screen - Advanced options
