that's only fair if you tell us from what time this image is. I can't even connect to firewallleaktest. this could be 2-3 yrs old and the program has matured, god knows.

Geez, will you look at the pic!? Then you could see that it's about version 2.05 - whereas the 2.06 beta just appeared. It's still very recent, the test is from Novembre 2006.

Look'n'Stop is nothing but a bad joke, just look at the test results from firewallleaktest.com:

Look'n'Stop failed nearly all tests, so it's hardly any better than the pitiful Windows firewall

I agree, One of the best i ever tried, even for new-comers, more or less. It's intuitive and it works.
Kudos on getting it updated, Maybe I'll start running a software firewall again now.
