I am talking about v.2.05 First, it is 'panic' button or 'stop all activity. It is actually very useful in many cases, much easier to use firewall's right click menu than unplug the network cable. Another thing is 'trusted zone' option (from analogy to ZA). There are certain applications that have no reason whatsoever to connect to Internet, yet they require server rights on the local network. In this case, excluding local computers IP's is not enough, it will still cause these appications to crash, so the only easy solution is to 'authorize', which will grant Internet access too. 'Trusted zone' concept, like in ZA, completely solves this, without allowin Internet access. Of course, ZA options to separate 'access' from 'server activity' is also extremenly useful, but may be not so simple to implement. Thanks.
