I have downloded and installed the Beta XP SP2, I cannot find out in the accompanying help files if the built in firewall either blocks or warns of outgoing connections, Does anyone know?


It will "Block" all outgoing connections and show a splash screen giving you the option of allowing them or not. Check your settings from the (new) icon on the taskbar.

But be careful and make backups beore installing.

Its not final.

Yes - thank you for the link.

And very pleased (so far) with it too. No problems apart from resetting all of Norton Firewalls access rules and I have not yet attempted to set up the wireless network with my laptop but so far so good and I am not expecting any problems.

Download took just 1hr 20 mins!
