    Hi,
    The rule 'stop land attack' blocks self-connections.
    Suppose I have a web or ftp server on my local machine, will this rule stop my local connections to 127.0.0.1?
    i.e., http://localhost or ftp://localhost

    thanks in advance.

    Your local connections wont be affected because it's happening over the MS TCP Loopback interface and not the NDIS, basically meaning only packets coming in from remote source on the Internet and using source-IP 127.0.0.1 will be detected and blocked...
