    Hello!

    I am translating LnS to Polish and have some questions about LnS.
    Thanks in advance for any help. Here they go:

    1. What does 'filtered' in LnS mean? As I understand now, 'filtered' packet is one for which at least one of the following 2 statements is true:
    - packet blocked
    - packet logged to log
    Therefore allowed, non-logged packets are not called 'filtered'.
    Am I right?

    2. Is the word 'Internet' in LnS GUI equal to network? 'Internet' suggests, that in LnS there are some very special provisions for private/multicast/non-routable networks, which seems to be not true.

    3. What does LnS call 'forbidden packet'- packet damaged, not compliant with RFCs, blocked?

    4. @ (like in Equal my @) is IP address, right?

    5. Where in LnS are used strings with ICMP types&codes' names, like "0 : Echo Reply" or "10 : Router selection"?

    Regards,
    Xin LnS

    OK, another set:

    6. There are strings like "Allow", "Block", "Filter" and "Don't filter". What
    is the difference between allow-don't filter and block-filter?

    7. "APP: TCP port not allowed" (and others strings in the same format) - 'not
    allowed' means blocked?

    8. "%1 : New version" - what replaces %1?

    9. "No more available rules, suppress some old rules to make room." - that
    means that there is maximum number of defined rules or maximum number of
    active rules?

    10. "The rule warns the forbidden packets" - (should be 'warns of') that means "Rule logs blocked packets to log'? But I can also set exclamation mark
    (=logging) for allowed packets?

    11. "The rule does not authorize the following rules in case of forbidden
    packet" - in help there is "to stop applying rules when the current rule
    applies" (ie. also allow rule). Which one is true?

    12. "The shorcut can not be created" - this is a shotcut to file, ie. .lnk
    file?

    13. "Load the last rule set when starting" - means last used rule set?

    14. "This software has started the following application which connects to
    Internet. Do you authorize it to do that ?" - In basic mode answering
    'Allow' permamently allows application to start another connecting
    applications AND lets the started application to connect, and NOT
    permanently enables started application to connect to network, right?

    If started application is now started independently and tries to connect,
    standard connection attempt box will be displayed?

    If allowed application is also enabled to start connectiong applications,
    any started application is allowed with no need to confirm or only the fact of starting by another application is accepted and started application sill needs to be allowed?

    The above are important for translating "Do you authorize it to do that?"
    question.

    15. "This DLL is started by the application referenced below. Do you authorize
    this DLL to connect to internet?" - Seems different than above and
    answering 'Allow' simply adds DLL as trusted application and has no effect
    on the flag allowing application to start other applications?

    16 - The same question as 10. for "The rule does not authorize the following rules in case of forbidden packet"

    17. "Test the availability of a new version at start up." - Ie. when starting firewall with Windows or when opening GUI?

    18. 'Connected' in Welcome tab. Is it checked only for public IP addresses? When testing with private IPs it never seems to get checked?

    Hi,

    Here are some answers.

    Frederic
    Yes, Internet is used as network.
    No there is no provision, we just retained the French wording.

    These strings are used in the Packet Content dialog box when you double-click on an ICMP packet.

    Some other answers below.

    Frederic
    'Filter' and 'Don't filter' are refering to the protocol blocking module. For this kind of controls you can choose to Filter the protocol or to not filter it.
    When a protocol is Filtered you can choose to allow or block the packets received/sent through this protocol.

    It is simply replaced by "Look 'n' Stop".
    Yes the maximum number of rules is 100 for Internet filtering and 128 for Application Filtering.
    The help version is the correct one.
    Yes, this is a possible error message when selecting Automatic Start through the start menu (where a shortcut has to be created).
    Yes.
    Yes, the DLL controls are different from the application ones and they are configured in another dialog box.

    When starting the firewall with windows.

    Yes, if you get a local/private IP Look 'n' Stop considers you are not connected to internet (on the selected network interface).
