    I use it in as many rules as possible :cool:
    It tightens your ruleset ;)

    If applied to encryption, does it have the same benefit?

    Not sure what you mean by that. Are you talking about port 22 (SSH) or port 443 (https) traffic??
    What are your thoughts??

    Yes, either port 22 or 443.
    My thoughts are that Using "my @" may limit the effect of the encryption in some way. Does encryption, esp, gre, etc. protect the PC more effectively when allowed (in/out) at "All" access points to the PC or is it better to use
    "My @" which appears to allow or deny access at the IP (ISP) only? Can anyone comment on this?

    That's where my original question developed.
    As a way to test the rules it would be great if LnS allowed for more rules. It seems limited to less than 100 rules, so I end up deleting rules I think are not needed to accomodate for new rules.
    All in all, it's a great rules bases F/W however.
