Stop all traffic - Guarddog


I "searched" this topic and the Man pages, but didn't find what I needed.

In XP, my Kerio Firewall has a check for "Stop all Traffic". Is there a similar setting for Guarddog?

I don't think Guarddog has such a setting, but if you want to stop all traffic, why not just physically unplug the computer from the internet?

That is an option; I suppose.

As a general rule, I prefer to avoid physically plugging and unplugging electrical/signal connections unnecessarily.

I infer from your sage advice, you would recommend unplugging your hardware as a viable alternative to the more conventional and ergonomic routine of "Log out" and "Turn off...".

Interesting...

I wonder why 'they' bother to complicate 'shut downs' when a yank on the power cord would get the job done just as well?

You should write a monograph; or something.
