    Hi
    Just trying look n stop and am very impressed with it .
    I am used to zone alarm and sygate so i am confused on one thing .
    I am used to denying everything server rights.
    Can i do this with look n stop.Is there a rule i can import.
    Also just curious as to why advanced rules dont come as default.

    Hi,

    The enhanced ruleset contains the "Block incoming connections" rule which block packets for a server mode connection.
    This ruleset is not set by default, because we are afraid it could be too restritive for most of the users who just installed Look 'n' Stop (and therefore we would have a lot of support to create additional rules for specific Internet usage, servers, games, P2P,...).

    At the application filtering level, you don't have to specify client/server rights, the application is allowed or blocked globally.

    Regards,

    Frederic
