    Hi
    I have a quick question. I connect to the Internet through a router that only has port 80 opened. ¿Is it a good idea to have ESS firewall in interactive mode, or should I leave it in automatic mode? Would my system be more protected if I change it?
    Thanks

    IMO you have total control In interactive,The question Is do you no exactly what is being asked to allow or block access and If your Not sure IMO always deny/Block you can always change the rule at a latter.The Automatic Rules makes it easy for folks who may Not want pop ups or do not understand what is being asked of them.I prefer interactive If I use third party firewalls but to each there own.
