Particularities of the firewall in version 2009
No stealth mode
First thing some users will notice is that there is no stealth mode. This can be observed on tests like Shields Up or PC Flank. Having no stealth mode does not make you vulnerable, it simply means that your PC will report an error when an outside pc attempts to connect to you (in stealth mode it will do nothing). While this may seem good, it's not, the automated attacks like port scans or various worms are not interested, they will probe random IP addresses whether they are stealthed or not (a good example is Helkern, even if the firewall is stealthed the Intrusion Detection System still blocks Helkern attempts to infiltrate the PC).
Also stealth mode can create problems with different Server type applications, P2P applications or even file transfers on certain programs.
If you insist on having stealth mode go to the Network Packages section and set these rules to block:
Any Incoming TCP stream
Any Incoming UDP stream
Also if you have a router it will stealth you and any changes you make in KIS will have no effect on the router's performance.
