If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port...

Been messing with ZoneAlarm, the free edition. I like it so far. Just wish there was more granularity. (Nick recommended I look at Kerio personal firewall too.) Any of you have any other suggestions?

So how's this for neat... it appears that Netscape (7.1) opens up a TCP link to localhost while it's starting up... and if you block that, it silently fails every outgoing TCP thereafter ... I wonder if that's a hack to get around being blocked on DNS lookups or what.
