And it is also a fact that pc-cillin firewall inmediately would detect another firewall if that were the case (pc-cillin automatically disable the Microsoft Firewall.
So.... that makes it for a fact that AOL does not install any firewall on Dial up users and they are free to install the firewall of their choice.
Not that I am in love with AOL but it is also not that they are telling me what I want to hear because whatever they tell me I can verify in different ways.
The problem here is solely a technical one related to the AOL scan engine and nothing more.
I know for a fact that pc-cillin 2005 firewall is working fine (I have tested it online) and it is running on background and the inability of AOL scan engine to detect it or not DOES NOT bother me, I am just only curious as to the reason AOL was able to detect the 2004 firewall and not the 2005 one, but I don't care if the problem is solved or not.
