    Default Security Level for Firewall

    Hey Guys,

    Here's a Question,

    Do you set your security to:

    1 - Allow All Incoming Connections
    2 - Allow Only Essential Service (Block all Incoming)
    3 - Set Access for Specific Services + Applications

    Mine is Set to 2, and then i have to change it to 3 to use iRemote, MediaLink and a few other progs what's your advice????

    I don't think it's an issue of which is better but how much control you want to have.
    It's security vs. convenience.
    I personally block all and manually allow the one I want.
