Hello again,

I had more time to make a case and prove to you that I am able to configure a
firewall correctly. I clean installed Windows 2000 SP4 with all the updates.
Next I installed Cygwin and the following firewalls.

rsync over ssh works with ALL these firewalls with just clicking âallowâ
twice(no other config changes).
ZoneAlarm Pro 6.1.737
ZoneAlarm Pro 5.5.094
ZoneAlarm Pro 5.1.033
ZoneAlarm Pro 4.5.594
ZoneAlarm Pro 4.0.146
ZoneAlarm 3.7
Norton Internet Security 2006
F-Secure Internet Security 2006

It only fails with the ZoneAlarm Security Suite (6.1.737, 6.0.677, 5.5.094)
family of products from ZoneLabs. If anybody wants to try it out
go to zonelabs<dot>com and download the 15 day trial version. I also sent all
this info to tech support at Zone Labs.

I am a huge supporter of the open source community and want to make this product
as reliable as possible. I was never looking for a free firewall configuration

Thanks again
Zarko Roganovic
