For Win7 MS Defender, MS Security Essentials (MSE - free MS download),
and Windows Firewall were not BLODAs for me, all others were, but you
still have to open up required ports in routers, Firewall, and any
security products, and/or enable apps to receive. It can be a pain.

Does F-n-Secure have firewall or port block features - many have?
Allow port 22 in (or your selection, and from selected hosts or
networks, if it can be limited).

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
