Does logging continue even after ZA shutdowns (the X comes up with a brown background, in the System tray)?
I was running my ZA last Saturday, was browsing the internet, and sometime b/w 1630-1730, my ZA shutdown with the X sign. Logging stopped at 1705 (per the ZALog.txt file). Would that be the time when the firewall shutdown? Or could it be that the firewall shutdown way before (say, 1630), and ZA continued logging intrusions?
This is important because it would, of course, let me know how long I was unprotected.
A clue: I disconnected as soon as I noticed the X (probably at 1705 as well), and XP had yet to give me the red shield in the system tray that notifies me when the firewall is down.
Please reply only if you are absolutely certain about the conditions for logging to stop; any documentation or evidence would be appreciated. Thanks.
