    I've been messing with my PrivateFirewall settings, and came to realize I don't really know what some of the settings do. And there is no information in the user manual!

    In Application Rules in the Applications tab, https://www.privacyware.com/PF_UserGuide/ApplicationsPage.gif

    Does the "This rule will Allow traffic" "type of rule" mean the rule becomes an Everything-Disallowed-Except... or the opposite? Opt-in or opt-out?

    What happens if I don't check any of the "Direction of rule" boxes?

    What happens if I have competing Allow and Deny rules, which ones win?

    I have another question. How can I disable the behavior that "Remember this setting" is checked by default when a popup occurs? Is there a registry setting or something?
