    currently i know of three HIPS that offer this functionality:

    AppDefend (part of GSS)
    ProSecurity (not sure)
    SSM (paid version)

    for AppDefend, it lets u allow/block always or once. what about the other two? how does their memory usage compare?

    SSM: will control access to a trusted zone (user config) or untrusted (all internet), I do not think this blocks inbound.
    Prosecurity: will control inbound/outbound TCP: control UDP / RAWIP
    Both will allow/block once/always(remember)

    Memory usage: (I have PS currently installed, so can only give mem usage for that at the moment)
    2 process:- current total:- Mem:7,900k VM:6,900k

    There are not "modules" that you can disable/enable.
