Just wondering if 64 bit Vista's firewall monitors outgoing traffic, as well as incoming? it was well documented that XP only monitored incoming traffic, but it did a good job of it imho (always reported as stealthed for me). Problem is my beloved Sygate PF doesn't want to hold hands with Vista 64 , so thought I'd look for another software firewall. Apart from the monitoring and logging of incoming and outgoing traffic, would be good to be able to click a system tray icon and see the incoming/outgoing data transfer rates. The king is dead, long live Sygate! * Yotta spits in the general direction of Symantec*. The list of programs I'm feeling lost without is really starting to mount, which is slowly drawing me back to 32x XP. Did I mention the head**c* setting up of file sharing with Vista?
