    Do NOT go there, You MUST login or create a NEW account, with a email address. Within 10 minutes I was getting crap, make sure you use a JUNK email address. I still have NOT gotten to the tests. Connection was broken, and my account is not found.

    After I got in, the following was listed for several of the tests:
    :We regret that due to increased demand for this service, this test is only open to business firewall users and not private individuals. "
    also
    Note: This test is only available during UK office hours ( 9:00-17:00 GMT Mon-Fri )

    We regret that due to increased demand for this service, this test is only
    open to business firewall users and not private individuals.

    Can NOT scan my IP address because it thinks I do not own it.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I have NOT received one piece of "crap" nor have I experienced ANY broken connections or "account is not found". Yes, two of the tests are not immediate but proceeding forward will nonetheless provide results.

    Despite the notices, here are the results of my firewall test from last night's request:

    I still have not received ANY "crap" on ANY of 3 machines each w/ a separate account. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Still NO broken connections, still NO problems w/ ANY of the testing after 34+ events. There may be a problem w/ your ISP.
