    Im up for license renewal in a month, and really would like to stay with ESS as it is a really good application. Unfortunately the firewall module is not fully compatible with Windows 7 and i really need a 24/7 working LAN access. Do i have to search for another (working) solution instead of renew my ESS license, or could we look forward to a fully working version in Windows 7 before my renewal?

    If you experience a problem with sharing on Windows 7, have you tried switching the firewall to learning mode? The next version of the firewall module will introduce a new default rule that will allow sharing in Windows 7-based home networks.

    Hi marcos, thank you for answer. No, not tried learning mode but will do that. I enabled test mode though, to see if new firewall modules are introduced. But how can i tell what version of firewall module i currently have?

    E-Buzz,

    Just right click the ESS tray icon and select 'about'. You'll see the list of all current modules.

    Ahhhh, thank you Sir!. I´m on firewall module 1051 as it seems, so the new 1052 module that is supposed to fix some of the Windows 7 issues are not available yet.

    I´ve tried what Marcos suggested, but the problems still persists. Guess i have to wait and see if it will be fixed in the very near future. Otherwise i am not going to renew my license............

    I have reinstalled ESS and am trying the learning mode. I have not had time to try to connect my 2 Windows 7 machines together, but so far it has given me no other issues. If it does fail to work, might I ask is it possible to manually create this new rule that the new firewall will create when it is released, or do we have to wait for that?

    --Ok, I tried the Learning Mode and it seems to work fine now. Firewall module 1051.
