regarding the tiny firewall "bug", when you finish configuring the firewall
you must uncheck the "learning" mode, in this case the firewall wont popup
any window asking to permit or deny .

Scanning hosts running the Tiny Personal Firewall (2.0.15a) on W2K
workstations that have been locked (ctl + alt + del)
The popup alert/dialogue jumps to the foreground, thus open to accept
permit/deny input from the local console, even when the workstations are
locked (ctl + alt + del). Thus an untrusted individual whom has local
to individuals workstations can scan a workstation/network, wait for the
alert dialogue and enter "permit" on unattended (locked workstations)
the owners permission/knowledge, No need to first unlock (ctl + alt + del)
