I have now the latest firewall module (1054) but i still have the same problem with some webpages within the Opera browser. Many webpages work fine but two, who i need very often, are absolutely horrible: Wikipedia and Google. When i try to start a search on these two pages or just try to open the website it takes minutes or the webpage loads with failures (e.g. image failures) or i simply get an error message that Opera could not establish a connection with the server. Only in few cases there is a short time period (some minutes) where the websites always load within seconds. But after that "working well period" everything is as worse as before. So the problem does not always occur but most of the times and on several webpages. Here is what i can say to maybe localize the problem: - It doesn't occur under Windows XP, but on Vista and Windows 7 - Changings of the ESS "active mode" settings don't solve the problem - When i disable the ESS firewall ("do not filter network traffic") and activate the windows 7 firewall everything works fine. - Within Firefox the probles doesn't occur as far as i can say (i only test it sometimes with Firefox because Opera is my default browser) So the problem is due to the ESS Firewall under Vista and Win 7. At the moment i use the latest ESS, Windows 7, Opera 10, and the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client 2.4.0202 (but it also occur with the "normal" Cisco VPN Client 5.0.05.290). Does anyone know a solution? It is really very time consuming. I have to use the VPN Client to get connected with the internet at university.
