Can you go to Control Panel, Windows Firewall and go to Turn off and Turn on Firewall settings.

 

Check the box on Block  Incoming for both Private and Public Network Settings.

 

Make sure that your Firewall is enable! (Select Turn on Firewall!)

 

After you have done so, restart your computer.

 

And try the with GRC again.

Re: F-Secure 2014 Internet Security Beta Test Firewall

Hi

 

I am suggesting to F-Secure to discontinue using Windows own Default Firewall.

 

It is not secure.

 

Not unless F-Secure thoroughly doing firewall leak testing.

 

Because Windows own default firewall always fail the test in firewall leaktesting!

 

Windows own firewall is very vulnerable!

That is called Shields up test.

 

But not all the ports were stealthed at the end of the test.

Rusli,

 

I've just perfomed some tests avalilable at PCFlank.

 

Here are some of the results for F-Secure Internet Security 2014 Beta:

 

Stealth test, Trojans test, Advanced Port Scanner and Exploit Test: Stealthed in all of them.

 

So, I can say F-Secure Internet Security 2014 Beta was perfect in all of them.

 

Best regards,  Victor
