So what does the interactive firewall do? All this time I thought the interactive firewall was protecting me like ZoneAlert. I have only two port scans detected by it so far, much less than I'd expect, and the list/log does not appear to be saved after reboot (for me). What would you recommend for more security, and I mean both firewall, spy, and virsus protection? I should mention that I plugged my laptop directly in instead of going through a router, which probably makes it easy prey or more like bait. I'm new to linux and was thinking linux is supposed to be much more inherently secure.
