Yes, i know the site and the leak test. As far as i know all firewalls fail the GRC test except ZoneAlarm which is, however, a real pain in the neck and not just inconvenient to use.
Where did mine fail?

A correctly set-up Comodo firewall, and router, passes all tests in both it's own, (not surprising), and the GRC tests for me

The one vulnerability I often find on systems where a good firewall is installed and configured is the WAN ping response in the router. A lot of manufacturers tend to have this set to respond by default. preventing this responce goes a long way to improving security

Those are the port scans. How about the Leak Test? Different story probably.

Sure! I configured it. It's wpa2 with stealth ports. I have Norton internet security too. I'm just saying the best firewall is a properly configured router. At least for incoming anyway.
